We arrived after dark, and it was very difficult to find. We were sent to a basement rooms, so we had to lug all our luggage down stairs, which was tough. All we wanted to do when we checked in was get to our room and get to bed. The desk clerk insisted on showing me the room, then showing...

We really enjoyed our stay here! It was really nice that all rooms are on one floor, so no hikes up stairs. The room was large and very comfortable. Good wifi strength! Located very close to Knappogue Castle where we attended the banquet. Breakfast the next morning was cooked fresh to order and was delicious! The fruit bar had a...

We stayed at the Ardilaun Guesthouse our last night of our two week trip and it was a good way to end the trip. Located approximately 20 minutes from Shannon Airport, you'll get a much better night's sleep than staying at a hotel near the airport, or over in overpriced Limerick. This place felt like I could be home, though...

Thank you so much for your detailed feedback and such nice comments. Most of all thank you for staying with us and taking the time to provide your feedback. I believe the 'overpriced' comment was intended for a different establishment and was placed against our Guesthouse in error but thanks again for your welcome feedback. With warm regards, Purcells Ardilaun...

If you are interested in exploring the West Coast of Ireland this can be a good base. We stayed four nights to explore the Burren, the Cliffs of Mohar and other local sites.

We stayed here our last night in Ireland to have a short trip to the Shannon airport. We had a very nice breakfast which was included in our price. Ask for a room either downstairs and/or not facing the road for a quiet night sleep. This B&B isn't too far from the Cliffs of Moher as well. The fitness room...
