Bunratty Haven Bed and Breakfast
Ranked #3 of 23 Bunratty B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed December 10, 2013

Bunratty Haven is the perfect place to spend a first or last night in Ireland, or a few days if you want a well-located home base in Co Clare. It is easy to find, and there are ground floor bedrooms. It is close enough to the airport to fill up your rental car and still get to Shannon in less than 20 minutes. It is a beautiful and comfortable home, with no carpets in the public spaces, a big plus for those of us who prefer uncarpeted floors.
But best of all is Lorraine's genuine, natural, kind hospitality. She would be accustomed by now to our late arrival, as we always have too many stops to make on the way out of Ireland, but even the first time, when we pulled in at 10 (or was it even later?), she opened the door with the warmest smile and not the slightest hint that we were inconveniencing her (which we surely must have done).
We have stayed in rooms 1 & 2, both very comfortable. Lorraine's breakfast choices are varied and delicious (try her porridge for a special treat and a change from "full Irish"). She is glad to accommodate special requests, and is a born hostess, charming & attentive, able to show her interest in her guests without seeming at all intrusive. You will find her a delight to chat with, and like us, you will want to come back the next time you are in Ireland!

Room Tip: ground floor rooms, no wall-to-wall carpeting

Warming welcome by Lorraine, the owner. She took the time to recommend some good restaurants in the city. She also answered our questions about Ireland attractions and more. The rooms were impeccable and the breakfast was very good. The Irish smoked salmon was delicious!

Although we only spent one night at Bunratty Haven, it was delightful. The bed was the most comfortable we slept on in Ireland, the room & rest of the house were lovely. And Lorraine was a wonderful host. We enjoyed the hour we spent talking to her over a delicious breakfast. And its five minutes from Bunratty Castle. Highly recommend Buratty Haven. Thank you Lorraine a comfy bed & great coffee!

We spent our first and last nights in Ireland at this welcoming, lovely B&B. The rooms were impeccable with comfortable beds and great bathrooms. Excellent breakfasts and a extremely helpful, knowledgeable and friendly hostess in Lorraine. Close to Shannon airport. Highly recommended.

Great B and B and absolutely lovely hostess in Lorraine . Modern and clean with good facilitate and excellent value for money. Good breakfast with Lots of choices. Very helpful with advice and made booking for excellent pub JB Clarke nearby for dinner. Lorraine also gave directions to nearby very reasonably priced laundry which did 2 bags of washing for us and the laundry dropped our washing back. Good location for Shannon Airport . Highly recommended

Charming and friendly b&b in great location near Bunratty Castle and not too far from Shannon Airport. Rooms are clean and pretty, comfortable beds and wonderful breakfasts. Lorraine is a terrific hostess: friendly, knowledgeable and very warm. I highly recommend it.

This was a nice place to spend a couple of nights as we explored Clare. The host and hostess were very nice and helpful. Close to Bunratty Castle. We were made to feel welcome and no one could ever fault the housekeeping. The place is spotless. I'm sorry I missed the dogs.
