Breakfast in Bunratty?

Can anyone recommend a good place to get breakfast in Bunratty? We are arriving at Shannon Airport early Saturday morning and were thinking of stopping in Bunratty for breakfast and the castle and folk park on our way to Killarney.

Thanks for any suggestions!

summitmom, Bunratty wakes quite late, and the Bunratty woollen mills (store) opens for breakfast between 09:30 and 10:00.

We lost Avoca (now a burnt carcass of a building) - so the best places for Breakfast (early) is the Oakwood Arms Hotel in Shannon and Bunratty castle hotel.

Don't use the folk park.

Murphy's cottage in Shannon opens early, it's inexpensive and an authentic 18th century thatched cottage, whereas the Rowanberry in Ballycasey is a little later (opening) in Ballycasey crafts centre.

If you've a large budget - Dromoland castle (outside Shannon)is a unique option, and skycourt shopping mall in Shannon has a wide range of restaurants in its food court.

Finally - there is a basic canteen in the airport if you just want to feed up and move on to exploring.
