Because there were some negative comments on the hotel here on Tripadvisor, I was a little bit worried while driving there, since we had booked it in advance. But the hotel is, actually, really good. The rooms are very large and while they are not brand-new, they are functional and comfortable. Maybe a little bit loud in the morning (depending... More

We love this lovely hotel at a perfect location. My daughter said "It's too perfect to be the real" when she walks along the small road down to the bar & shops nearby and passing the road to Folk park. Staff are helpful & friendly that made our days staying there are memorable. Plan to stay here if we come... More

Staff were so friendly and helpful. Highly recommend and don't understand the expectations of those who have wrote negative reports on this hotel. Clean, comfortable bedrooms, a hearty breakfast with really helpful staff and fab live music in the bar on both weekend nights. Will visit again.

I stayed at this property as part of a small group tour to attend the Folk Park and Irish Banquet there. The rooms are indeed spacious and nicely furnished but in dire need of a renovation as are the common areas especially. The carpeting needs to be replaced and the walls painted throughout the property. I felt the hotel was... More

My family and I stayed here for one night en route to Clifden from Dublin. Primarily we came to see the castle and folk park, but also to break up some of the driving on our road trip. It's not a cheap place to stay for a night, which is why I guess I felt a bit underwhelmed. The rooms... More

Although I am reasonably local, I had never stayed overnight in Bunratty. I selected the hotel for its convenience to the Folk Park and Castle and to Durty Nelly's. I was pleasantly surprised! The rooms were very comfortable; the hotel was quiet (although occupancy was probably reasonably full); and the surroundings were very pretty. Clean, comfortable and generally good. My... More
