“A lovely, peaceful place”
Reviewed September 24, 2013

This is a beautiful, quiet farmhouse. It is very comfortable and peaceful, and yet very convenient and easy to find, near Ennis and Bunratty in County Clare. The lady of the house is an accomplished hostess, who makes all her own breads, scones and jams--delicious! They are very kind and welcoming people, and you will love sitting in the front garden listening to the birds and the cows in the far fields. We will definitely return sometime, and highly recommend it.

I found this place via the Go Ireland website and booked online. The proprietors (Michael & Mary) were very welcoming and hospitable and we were immediately provided with fresh coffee, tea and some excellent examples of Mary's home baking.

The room was clean and comfortable and free wifi (very important these days) was available.

It's a lovely place to stay and I shall be there again if I'm in the area.

Mary and her family were incredibly welcoming, and since we had no car, kindly drove us around. The rooms were spacious, comfortable and had power showers. Breakfast was homemade and delicious. I'd stay there again in a heartbeat.

Drinving through Ireland we spent only one night at the Gorteen Farmhouse and we regret that we couldn't stay any longer. We had such a lovely stay in a lovely atmosphere. The rooms were clean and our hosts Mary and her husband were not only very friendly, they made us feel at home. And as far as our son (11) was concerned, he had the time of his life, joining our host on the tractor while he was feeding the cows and playing with their little dog.
Breakfast was very enjoyable and there was a wide offer from cereals to the "full Irish" .
Whenever we have the chance we will try to come back!

We stayed two nights here while going to the Tulla music festival. We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were great, friendly, caring people. The location is out in the country, just the way we like it, and very near all the places to go and see. It was like staying with family for us - no pressure, just relax and be yourself. The roo,m was great, the food excellent. No criticism of any kind!

Decided to book this b&b as it seemed an ideal location whilst we were touring western Ireland. Were we so lucky ! Perfect in everything we wanted. Mary (and her husband) was an excellent host and felt like we had known her for years. She drew a 6 mile sketch for us to walk around the farmhouse and wow what a lovely walk (the weather did help) with some interesting sights. No hesitation in going there again shoud we be passing.

You will not find a more gracious hostess or a better Irish breakfast in all of Ireland. Our room was clean and bright , hardwood floors and a private bathroom with a power shower! The Gorteen Farmhouse was the perfect home-base for us to tour County Clare from.
