Ranked #9 of 23 Bunratty B&B and Inns
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We only stayed one night; however, Mary did everything possible to make our stay a pleasant one. We arrived late & she served us tea & cake before we retired to a very lovely room, with the nicest bathroom we encountered during our travels. Mary knew we were leaving at 0 dark 30 in the a.m., so she made sure we had some OJ & snacks to take with us. A lovely place & a lovely lady!

This B&B was very nice. The owner, Mary, was very friendly and accommodating. Rooms are clean. Located close to Bunratty Castle and a 20 minute drive to the Shannon airport.

We stayed at Gallows View on our last night in Ireland. We Had a very comfortable stay with Mary. Gallows View is very nice. Comfortable beds, decor is beautiful. Location is very good.
We enjoyed the dinner show at the castle, I have to say the food is much better than in years past. The show is the same but the Meal was very good. The dinner show is a fun way to end a trip. Great breakfast before leaving for the airport. Easy trip back to the airport from Gallows View. Enjoy. Thanks again Mary.

This was our second stay at the Gallows View. We found it through friends of friends as you do in Ireland, and will be back every time we come to visit. The great location - 15 minutes from Shannon, a mile from Bunratty and Durty Nelly's - is combined with a very well kept house and a great hostess to make this a wonderful place to spend a night or more.

She waited up late for us to get in at night, got us settled and comfortable that night, and then woke up early to get us all and amazing Irish breakfast for our last night on the island for this trip. I cannot say enough about Mary and her home, please stay here when you need to and be happy!

Room Tip: Ask for the balcony room.

Mary is such a gracious hostess. She took time to talk with us and recommend several places in the near area to see. Her breakfast was quite the spread and tasted amazing. The rooms were beautiful and made us feel right at home. Our flight left very early on the morning of our departure but Mary made a special effort to have warm coffee & tea along with fresh bread, fruit, and cereal set out for us :) Mary, along with her beautiful home, were a very special part of our trip. Thanks Mary!!!!

Room Tip: All the rooms were beautiful!

Mary was a wonderful host, and this B&B is clean and comfortable. A great breakfast was served. She accepts B&B vouchers from Irish Tourism. Very convenient to Durty Nellie's, Bunratty Castle, and Shannon Airport. Highly recommended.
