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.

We spent our final night in Bunratty in advance of dropping off our rental car and flying out of Shannon. The hotel is quite large and has nice public areas. Our room was quite adequate, spacious and nicely furnished. The shower had plenty of hot water, not always the case in some hotels in Ireland. Unfortunately, breakfast is not served... More

This was our second stay at the Bunratty Castle Hotel, and we enjoyed it more than the first. It does seem a bit odd to be registering at the front desk while a crowd is in all the rooms of the first floor for a wedding reception. Nonetheless, check-in was rapid and easy. There is a sort of "country estate"... More

Near the end of our recent Ireland trip, my wife and I stayed at The Bunratty Castle Hotel. The hotel itself is perfectly fine, just not really exceptional. The rooms were clean and ours was surprisingly large, but I think we were in an executive wing so they may not all be that large. The location is good as it... More

Very comfortable last stop on our tour of Scotland and Ireland. Front desk staff, particularly Deirdre, could not have been more helpful. In contrast to a number of the upscale hotels we stayed at, we were made to feel welcome and valued. Long walk from lift to our room, but good exercise.

We eat here as a group,service was excellent .The starters were nothing exceptional and lacked imagination.However the mains were very good and piping hot.I opted for the chicken with the black pudding which was delicious.Again desserts were fairly normal fare and were followed by tea or coffee.The Bunratty is a fine hotel and due to its proximity to the castle...

Stayed in this hotel overnight to enable us to attend the medieval banquet at Bunratty Castle - just a five minute walk. Comfortable rooms and helpful friendly staff. Very tourist orientated - car park full of buses . Hotel gets very noisy after the finish of each banquet at the castle.
