“Perfect!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 10, 2012

My husband and I and our three children stayed there for three nights in August. Sinead and Shane were wonderful hosts making us feel comfortable...like being at home! The rooms were clean, and we loved the ability to make our own tea in the afternoons. The culinary delights of Shane's wonderful cooking was great to look forward to first thing in the morning. Would highly recommend to either couples or families. Looking forward to another stay in the future.

Sinead and her family were lovely hosts!
They greeted me with a warm welcome and the other guests staying at their home were also all friendly and inviting.
I noticed right away that they had several thoughtful touches - extra toiletries, towels on your bed, tea and a hot pot in your room. They offer free wi-fi but it wasn't working on my phone for some reason and Sinead offered her computer to me to use so that I may print my boarding pass for my flight in the morning.
I highly recommend that you include a visit to the Park House when you are in Ireland, you won't be disappointed.

A nice, roomy, and quiet B&B. Great, personalized breakfast. Location is convenient to Bunratty Castle and area. Watching the kids at breakfast was amusing. And our departure time was very flexible. Overall, a great bargain.

Over the years, a lot of B&B accommodation have changed from a familiar atmosphere to an kind of unpersonal thing. Park House was one of few, where you still feel very welcome. The rooms are nice and the breakfast its excellent! Even if you want to leave early in the morning, getting breakfast was no problem, they prepared a lunch-box , what is not understood. We stayed here several times, and there was nothing to complain about!
Thanks to Sinead and Shane for the nice stay! :)

Honestly, if the nice folks at Park House would not use the term "luxury", ones expectations would not be raised above what is delivered at their B&B. The couple that own this convenient and nice accommodation are friendly and do an adequate job. It is a nice place to visit the Bunratty Castle and to participate in the "feast" there. It is also convenient to Shannon Airport. All around a very solid average experience, and perhaps the best to be had in this particular location.

We stayed here the night before we caught our flight back to the states. The hosts were very kind and Shane even drove down to meet us since we could not find the location. I tried putting the address in my GPS would it did not give us precise directions. As we had to leave at 4:00 am in the morning we did not get a chance to sample their breakfast but Shane told us they would leave some pastries and such out for us. I guess they forgot because they did not leave anything out for us the next morning. The room was average. One of the beds was lopsided and could not be slept on by my aunt and the bathroom smelt musty and had some mildew in the shower. Overall not a bad place to stay if you need to stay close to Shannon airport.

We (me, mom, daughter) recently stayed at the Parkhouse for a night in Bunratty. We had tickets for the Bunratty Castle feast that evening (which was quite fun and the food was better than we were expecting, also unlimited amount of wine). Shane and Sinead, as well as there two beautiful boys could not have been better hosts. We were heading to the Cliffs of Mohr upon check-out and Sinead gave us a better route to take, which turned out to be absolutely beautiful. Family room was quite comfortable with tea/coffee set up in the room. Would definitely come back to the wonderful, warm, inviting home. Thanks for welcoming us.
