Mary is like a gracious Aunt. She got up extra early to make my family a FANTASTIC breakfast.
Her directions were spot on.

A very sweet lady and a great option for your last night before flying out of Shannon.

We were able to get two rooms for a reasonable rate for Ireland. We thank her for a great stay!

My family and friends have been staying at Mary's place for over 25 years. She is an amazing hostess who goes above and beyond to make her guests happy. The rooms are all comfortable and spotless. Mary is also an fantastic cook. Her breakfast menu includes salmon and French toast. My children love it! The location is wonderful as well. It's perfect for resting a night upon arrival in Ireland or for your last few days due to it's proximity to the airport. I recommend it also as a home base for visiting Durty Nellys and Bunratty Castle. You will not be disappointed with your stay at Gallows View!

Gallows View was the very last place we stayed on a three week family vacation. We had to drop off our rent car and then arrange a taxi to take us back to the airport very early the next morning. I was in email contact with Mary before we arrived and she was quick to respond and seemed positive that we could work out a game plan once we arrived. She ended up having us follow her to the airport to drop of the car and then drive the four of us back! So sweet! We spent the afternoon in Bunratty and she gave us a taxi number to call when we were ready to return. Because we were leaving so early the next morning we asked if we could skip breakfast (which she gave us a discount for) and she even had a taxi ready for us at 6:15am that morning! The rooms were large and comfy, and the house was spotless! Mary was extremely welcoming and hospitable! The only thing that made us sad was that we didn't get to say goodbye-Mary wasn't awake when we left. This is a great family friendly (with a family feel) place to stay before you leave from Shannon airport!

We chose this facility to accomodate reservations at the Bunratty Castle medieval banquet and our scheduled departure from Shannon the next morning. We were given a room with a nice window providing lots of light and a nice view of the front garden and a wooded area across the road. Our stay was necessarily a little rushed with the banquet that night and an early departure the next morning -- a real shame because this is a place anyone would enjoy for several days. Mary was friendly and gracious, knowledgable of the area (gave us a good shortcut to the airport), and just generally delightful. We were especially grateful that she prepared an early breakfast for us that allowed us plenty of time to make our morning flight. While a little too far from the castle to walk, at least for me, this is not an issue if one has a car because there is more than enough parking at the castle near the entrance. All in all, it was an excellent choice for visiting the castle and making a relatively early flight out, but I would also recommend it to anyone who needs a base of operations in the area for a number of days. You will be glad you stayed at Gallows View.

What a great way to kick off our first night touring Ireland! We stayed at the Gallows View and attended the Bunratty Castle medieval banquet. The location was convenient and within easy walking distance to the castle. The hostess was extremely helpful and courteous. Upon inquiring about the nearest cell phone store, we were offered a prepaid cell phone that was left behind from another guest for our usage.
The home was clean and decorated beautifully. We were served the best tasting little cakes and tea/coffee upon arrival.
We would stay here again!

We stayed at Gallows View last night and it was such a lovely b&b. Mary was a perfect host, friendly and warm. And the house is decorated and furnished with such amazing attention to detail. I wish we had more time in the area so we could stay another night. I highly recommend this b&b.
