“Beutiful Irish Charm”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

My Mom and I stayed at Dunaree on our last night in Ireland becuase of it's location to Shannon Airport and it made leaving the Emerald Isle even more difficult. Absolutely beautiful and charmimg B & B. First class accomadations. Great showeres, very comfy rooms, elegant surrondings and beautiful outdoor garden.Wonderful traditional Irish breakfast. Penny and Kevin are extraordinary hosts! Thank you.

My sister and I stayed two nights with Penny and Kevin. Penny was such a nice, sweet person and she helped us in so many ways. Her breakfast was delicious and she came and shared a cup of tea with us while we ate. On our last night there, she came into our room and just talked about our day and we really liked that. Our room was spacious and very clean and cozy. I'm sure we will stay at Dunaree the next time we visit Ireland, which I hope is soon!!

Penny O'Connor has a great B&B in Bunratty. The friendly hostess indeed took great interest in our comfort. The Generously sized rooms are very comfortable. Ideally located to visit Bunratty Castle, Quinn Abbey, and other area attractions. Definately worth a few nights stay.

Room Tip: R is in the room #1 is in the back of the house and is very quiet.

Dunaree is a really beautiful home.
Warm, friendly and so relaxing. Penny and Kevin are perfect hosts.

Breakfast superb, as usual. This was my 2nd visit and I will certainly be back in 2012.

The Dunaree B&B was our last stop on our trip to Ireland and we saved the best for last! The rooms were very spacious and private and the scenery around the house was beautiful. Great location within walking distance to all of the shops, pubs and the castle. We had a super early flight the next day and Penny had breakfast all set up and ready to go for us in the morning. I would definitely recommend staying at the Dunaree.
