We stayed here for two nights to visit the sights in Bunratty. The good: The spa is very good, nice pool (with hours where children can't visit, which we enjoyed), and lovely massages available at reasonable cost. We both took advantage of the massages, and found the staff to be nothing but pleasant and professional. The lobby is also well... More

The front desk receptionist was so helpful though! We left Bunratty for Galway and she printed out the bus schedules for us and told us the quickest... More

Recently stayed in the hotel as I was attending a wedding there. On arrival, the lobby and reception area looks really well, large open spaces with loads of sofas and places to gather. I went to the reception desk to check in, and the whole process seemed quite rushed. Take your money (I was told it's hotel policy to take... More

Very disappointed in this hotel. Not the standard I expected. On arrival no friendly check in. We were asked our names and then told we had to pay in advance. We booked dinner for that evening which was a disaster. Food was served overcooked and only luke warm. We sent it back but had to wait so long for replacement... More

We booked this hotel due to its proximity to Shannon Airport. Adequate best describes this property. It is adjacent to the Castle and Durty Nellys and that is about it. Rooms are worn, there is no service for luggage ,etc. and , with the exception of one local late last night the front desk staff is surly and not reflective... More

This was our second time to stay here and the only problem is that you have to walk so far to get to your room, you almost need a map. The room is adequate and comfortable, but it's a hike. The breakfast is like eating in a dormatory which I think is due to the reason the cater to Bus... More
