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.

This B&B was excellent for a quick stay. The room was really quite a comfortable experience after a long flight in from the States. The hosts, Michael and Mary, were lovely. The breakfast was outstanding. Wish we could have stayed longer!

Just finished an excellent breakfast to wrap up our stay at The Courtyard. Michael and Mary were most gracious and welcoming throughout our stay and made us feel right at home. We stayed in a family room which was large and comfortable for my wife and I along with our two adult daughters. The shower had plenty of power and... More

We are so happy to have been led to this B&B through our travel coordinator. We spent three nights of our stay with Mike and Mary and could not have been more pleased with our accommodations or hosts. We were greeted at the front door by Mike after a long journey to the Shannon airport from Pennsylvania. He led us... More

We could not have asked for a better place or better hosts than Michael and Mary at the Courtyard B&B. We spend our first and last night in Ireland here and loved it. The rooms are big and clean. The breakfast was excellent. There are several restaurants extremely close if you want food (Durty Nelly's plays great Irish traditional music).... More
