We visited the Bunratty Castle Hotel for a night while visiting our son who was studying abroad. We were surprised at the lack of food establishments nearby. We visited Dirty Nellie's but weren't overly impressed. Breakfast was fine. We did visit the Folk Park and would recommend it to anyone staying.

Really nice room.Bath and shower for a change. Breakfast really good. Couldn't fault this place at all. The only thing that could do with improving is the cleanliness of the teapots at breakfast. They were very grubby looking but the tea was lovely.

On arrival this hotel looked nice but in bad need of a lick of paint. Our room was a bit dated but very comfortable and as we were overlooking the green at back it was lovely and quiet. Separate shower in bathroom was lovely. The breakfast selection each morning was only fabulous, I had lovely selection of fresh fruit followed... More

Was really looking forward to being right across from the castle....only good thing about this place! Rooms were average, but bathroom needs to be redone due to tile grout come out and a breeding ground for bacteria. Service for breakfast was way below par! Had to almost get up to get coffee. Only 3 workers for a room not big... More

There is nothing spectacular about this hotel. It is clean but run down. The beds are rock hard. Good location, but other than that, a nice B&B might be just as good. It looks like there are renovated rooms from other travellers pics, so if you do stay here, request one.

Stayed here one night as we were attending the banquet at the Bunratty Castle. The hotel was very clean, the staff was amazing, and the room was clean and had a great view. The hotel was a 5 minute walk to the castle.

The staff is very nice. The beds were pretty uncomfortable. The breakfast buffet was lacking compared to other hotels we stayed at. Nice grounds and a great location between Shannon airport and Waterford. Our room overlooked the roof of the common areas. When we had to open our window to cool the room it was very noisy.
