Shannon Lodge
Ranked #7 of 10 Shannon B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 24, 2013

We stayed at Shannon Lodge on our last night in Ireland, and thought it would be just okay since it may be just a one-nighter for most people. We were wrong. Martina greeted us warmly and showed us to our extremely clean room, then gave us some ideas about what to do for the afternoon and where to have dinner. We had a great afternoon and wonderful dinner at Gallagher's near Bunratty. We told Martina we would be leaving very early, and she was kind enough to leave some breakfast items out for us. The bed was comfortable, the TV excellent, good lighting, wifi, and the bathroom was excellent. The lighting was superb and there was plenty of room to hold our toiletries (but she had included more than most B&Bs have in the room, including Q-tips and cotton balls! It's just a great place and, as experienced B&B guests, we highly recommend it.

Martina was very thoughtful to let us check in at a time that was convenient for us because she knew it was our last day in Ireland. We were driving up from the south so this allowed us to make some stopovers along the way. Martina was not in when we arrived but her husband showed us to our room and recommended we have dinner at the nearby oak wood arms hotel.
Our room at Shannon Lodge was clean, comfortable and equipped with items that were not available at other B&Bs we have stayed at: large towels, shampoo, shower cap, cotton balls, qtips, iron, etc. We only stayed one night but we enjoyed Martina's assorted breakfast before we headed for our flight. She had a buffet of cereals, fruits, nuts and seeds plus a hot breakfast if you want it.
The house itself is located close to the airport, but it is quiet and within a residential neighborhood. My only noise complaint would have to be the water pipes, but as long as no one is taking a late night shower then there shouldn't be any issues.
Shannon Lodge is the best place to stay before flying home.

We stayed in several B & B's in Ireland and each had great hosts and charm. This one one had it all - including a roomy bathroom :) - and we so enjoyed our night there! Martina was a great hostess, cooked a delicious breakfast and was so interesting to talk to about Irish history. The room we stayed in was lovely with extra touches that made it very welcoming. If we are in Shannon again, we will definitely stay here!

I have had the pleasure to stay in the Shannon Lodge, I have stayed here a number of times and in other guest houses and this is streets ahead of them all including hotels, the breakfast is far beyond your standard fry etc, free wifi and Martina is a great host. Do not go anywhere else.

Room Tip: All rooms to a high standard

Having just finished driving 5 days around southern Ireland it was a nice quiet haven near Shannon Airport. Martina is the perfect host with information, kindness and warm smile to put any weary traveler at ease. Comfortable rooms and a great breakfast had us on our way with plenty of time for our flight. Will make this a stop on our next trip.

Room Tip: Any room was quiet and comfortable, we all enjoyed our stay.

My husband and I spent a week in Ballyvaughn at a lovely cottage on the bay. Not wanting to have to get up in the dark and dash to Shannon for our return flight, I looked on Trip Advisor for suggestions for a single night near the airport. This one was excellent.

The B&B is VERY easy to find. It's only five minutes from the airport, and ten minutes from the Bunratty Castle. It is fresh and new looking. The hostess was great, lots of good suggestions for dining out. The room was very large, not your typical Europeon B&B, with a great bathroom with a large shower. There was a complimentary tea set up in the room with a few treats, nice linens and towels, nothing missing at all.

We had a great breakfast, all my husbands favorites, rashers of bacon AND sausage. No rushing in the morning, in fact, the check out was not until 11 AM which we didn't need but is nice to know. All this and the rate was VERY reasonable.

Thank you Martina!

Before review our lodging in Ireland, I took time to review all the web sites to be sure that I give them a fair review. The web page for this B&B is exactly as described and Martina is the perfect hostess. You will not find a better B&B in the Shannon area. It is close to the airport but quite, clean, great breakfast, large rooms. Americans have an informal rating scale of one to ten - with ten the best. This B&B deserves more than 10. Martina has set a very high standard for her B&B and you can tell that she works very hard to maintain that standard. Very comfortable bed, tv in room, large bathroom - and she's a good cook!!
