We ended our 11 day trip with a night in this B&B close to Shannon airport. Mike and Mary were very nice, social and helpful. The B&B is very clean. The breakfast was made to order. It is close to a lovely village called Adare with wonderful shops and restaurants. Great way to end our trip!

We arrived late in the afternoon on our first of 14 days in Ireland and had not slept since the day before. Mary greeted us kindly regardless of our sleep deprived state! We had 2 rooms booked. My Triple room was great and the size exceeded my expectation. The bathroom was huge and I would have liked to have had... More

Mike and Mary make this BnB. They were so friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome. The breakfast was filling and well put together. The rooms were large and quiet...including a VERY large bathroom with excellent water pressure. The carpet showed a bit of wear and the tv's volume was frustrating, but nonetheless, it was... More

Stayed in a spacious twin room for 3 nights at the end of our trip. Handy for seeing Bunratty Castle & Folk Park, Durty Nelly's, Craggaunowen, the Burren and Cliffs of Moher. Hosts very helpful; kept us up to date with weather forecasts & recommended which day & what time to see the Cliffs. Handy for walking home after evenings... More

We stayed here the first and last night of our trip. We arrived into Shannon at 6:00 am and immediately drove to the Courtyard. We had reserved the previous night as well, as suggested, so we could get right into our room. Our room was ready when we got there. We were right on time for breakfast, so we ate... More

This was a good location for us. We did have a vehicle but prefer to walk. We were able to get dinner at a place within walking distance. The bed was a little hard for us. Good breakfast. More of a hotel than a B&B. We prefer smaller places. Room size & shower were good.

We visited for one night and loved our stay. We were sad we had to pack up and go! We stayed at several locations around Ireland and this was by far our best experience of our week long trip. Very friendly and helpful. Gave us great tips of things to do in the area.

For my couple days in Bunratty my stay here was ideal. I felt perfectly welcome and at ease. Everything is within walking distance, including the bus stop for either direction. The taxi from the airport was a short ride for only 25 euro. When I return to Bunratty I will certainly stay here again.

You can walk to the castle and shops they are wanderful. Don't forget to take a walk down Hill road. Well up the road! It is a beautiful walk! We hope... More
