I will be arriving in Shannon on Dec. 24th this year to start a 15 day vacation with my family. I want a one night stay when we arrive because after a long flight I thought it would be better to be well rested before a two hour drive to Killarney. I was thinking about Bunratty for one night, but someone recommended Ennis for one night. Does anyone have any recommendations? We have reservations for a one week stay in Killarney on the 25th of Dec. I am also concerned if we will be able to find places to stay and to eat. Many of the B&B's that I have contacted are closed for the holidays.
