The location made my trip to the airport the next morning so easy--only a 15 minute drive. The room was lovely and had cookies, tea, coffe and a hot water machine in the room. It was nice to wake up and enjoy coffee in my room before breakfast. The Irish breakfast was plentiful and kept me going strong for my... More

We flew into Shannon for a long weekend break and spent 2 nights at Gallows View which is ideally situated for touring this lovely area. Mary is the perfect host, welcoming us to her beautiful home and everything was perfect, lovely room, nicely decorated, spotlessly clean, and an excellent freshly cooked breakfast. There are 3/4 excellent restaurants in the village... More

We've stayed quite a few places, and many have been obliging and comfortable, but none more so than sweet Mary and her beautiful home. We luckily stumbled upon this gem as we looked for a place to turn around. Did everything right, priced fair, and feels like home. Just up the road from Bunratty and Nelly's, and a short drive...

First of all I was already looking forward to staying here and meeting Mary after communicating with her via email. She was so welcome mean, accommodating, and helpful. We left Salt Lake City around 11 PM on a Tuesday evening and arrive in Shannon early Thursday morning. Mary let us check in quite early and we spent most of the... More

We had a great one night stay at Gallows View B&B! We had a lovely view of the front garden and the rooms were clean and nicely decorated. Mary was a wonderful hostess, even getting up to serve us breakfast at 6am so we could get to the airport! We really appreciated her going out of her way to make... More

Great location, near Bunratty Castle, famous Durty Nellies pub restaurant and Shannon airport. Mary's husband is a builder and has done them proud with this recently built modern quality home. Fantastic breakfasts and warm welcome.

Honestly, we picked this place based solely upon location. And the location IS great--15' drive to the airport. But it turned out to be one of the most welcoming, warm, everything you could need B&Bs of our trip. Mary makes sure that your every need is anticipated. The room was huge and the bathroom was stocked with shower gel, shampoo... More

We ended our visit to Ireland here before flying out of Shannon. It's a beautiful and well-maintained B&B and Mary is a gem! She treated us like family making us tea when we arrived and getting up really early to make sure we had a full breakfast before we left at 6:30 AM to catch our flight. Mary made sure... More

We stayed here on our first and last nights in Ireland. Mary was a gracious, experienced and eager-to-help host. The rooms are nice, as is the entire house. Her breakfasts were hearty and first-rate! (I recommend the pancakes). Mary is also an understanding soul. When we got back to America, we realized we'd packed the hair dryer from our room!... More

Wow... where to start? Let's start with Mary. She was such a welcoming and warm host. We felt like we were visiting family. She was so sweet and gracious. My wife, Mother & Father in law loved her, me too. The B&B is so well located to Bunratty Castle and the airport. The B&B is clean, well maintained and beautifully... More
