Bunratty Castle Hotel is NOT in the castle, but is across the street from the castle. This is a luxury hotel and we had a Jr. Suite, room 436 which was very quiet with a king bed and couch seating area. We only stayed one night., but it is a great location for visiting the castle, the Bunratty Folk Park and it is close to the Shannon airport. The well-known pub, Durty Nellies, is across the street where we had a nice afternoon snack. The front staff was extremely accommodating and friendly. This hotel has a great feel with a lovely old world exterior. Our room was tasteful and comfortable after over an hour's wait to get into it. We ate lunch at the adjoining restaurant and thought it was very good. We booked ahead for the banquet, which I will review separately, but will say here that it is a real tourist experience and the food is terrible! The Angsana Spa was one of the best experiences we have ever had. That says a lot! We definitely recommend staying here if you are visiting the castle and the Folk Park, but I would think twice about the banquet!
