Nice location, waited 35 minutes for a simple burger and salad. Staff seem occupied and un-interested with customers. Asked for extra Caesar salad dressing as it was too dry, and received ordinary salad dressing. Simple things as ketchup and other sauces not on table and...More

The Bunratty castle hotel is located right next to Bunratty castle. The hotel is in an ideal location and the service is right up there with the best. The castle and mills are right there and very convenient. A truly great place to stay!!!

Good question. Their spa set up requires bookings etc, so it would be an additional price. I thought the pool was freely available, but we didn't use it. May be best to check with the hotel to get the right info.

As a protocol and etiquette professional I will be visiting this area and looking at staying at the Castle Hotel and going to the Castle for the Dinner. I will be reviewing and hopefully recommending this hotel and the castle dinner to our international Protocol Association. I see that the comments range across the spectrum on this hotel (loved there website but would like to have seen a place for reviews - or I missed it), had to go to trip advisor for comments. I know some guest may have a minor problem that becomes a major issue when they write a review, so I try and keep an open mind, read between the lines and ask for honest feedback as if I was recommending to my grandmother. Would like some good recent feed back on the hotel, room, castle dinner, breakfast and things to do (sites, pubs, restaurants). Any suggestions greatly appreciated I do post after I stay at a location and give a very detail description and recommendation (good or bad)

Not sure if this is too late but here goes. The hotel itself is quite good but could do with a touch up in places. The bar area is pretty small especially if there is a group in. Plenty of seating in the lobby area though... More

Sorry, I don't know about public transit as we arrived by auto. And our breakfast was included as we had pre-booked bed & breakfasts for our vacation!
