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!
