“Amazing place”
Reviewed 10 August 2014

My friends and I traveled to Ireland for St. Patricks day and planned to explore the island. First stop was Shannon. Since this was our first stop we had some trouble locating the place and arrived early in the morning hoping to drop off our bags then go exploring. They were more than accommodating (given the early time) and seemed to bend over backwards to make our stay pleasant. You don't even realize how close to the airport you are because all you see is the beautiful Irish countryside. Serene location and if you want to see the countryside I recommend staying here. It is also close to many places like Bunratty Castle and Cliffs of Moher. Also our room had an amazing bathtub, perfect for a soak.

We ended up staying at this inn rather than an on-site hotel the night before flying out to Shannon. The Inn is lovely -- very comfortable (beds a little on the soft side for me) -- but well maintained. The bathroom in our room was both very modern and HUGE! The only drawback to this place is that there are not restaurants located convenient to the Inn. My advice would be to eat before going to the inn.

A gift from our son and boy was it worthwhile. Stayed for two nights and had a fabulous meal on the Sat night after a long car journey from Northern Ireland. I can fully understand why we had to book that evening as the house was full of visitors from the local area and those who were staying overnight. Breakfast was equally as good and we were well looked after the whole time that we were there. Would recommend this country house to anyone - well worth a visit either to stay or for just the evening meal itself. Everything was as perfect as it could be. Our room was spacious with beautiful décor and I particularly liked the well appointed en suite bathroom, dressing room and four poster bed. All in all a very enjoyable stay.

Room Tip: All the rooms appear to be at a high standard

We stayed here earlier this week for 1 night having read the previous reviews on Tripadvisor. What a wonderful place, and such a shame that we could only stay 1 night!
Everything was perfect - the warm welcome from owner/front of house Gillian, the spacious room with beautiful decor and excellent shower, the absolutely delicious breakfast (the tastiest cooked breakfast that we have enjoyed on our 8 day tour of Ireland), the tranquility (10 mins from Shannon airport and we didn't see or hear a plane!) and the entire ambiance of the gorgeous place.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will certainly recommend it to our friends and hope to return ourselves one day. Thank you Gillian for such a lovely stay.

We stayed for three nights and were sad to leave this beautiful place. Not only was it the lovely atmosphere of the house but it was made more special by the genuine kindness of Gillian and her husband. Nothing was too much trouble for Gillian and she saw to it that every guest was made to feel at home and and comfortable. The rooms are immaculate, lovely toiletries and comfortable bedding. Now the food is outstanding for breakfast and dinner. You don!t have to leave to go out for an evening meal. Choose either one course or three. The choice is yours. Everything is so fresh and beautifully presented and equal to what you would receive in a top restaurant. I have withdrawal symptoms from Gillian's homemade marmalade. It is the best I have ever had in the world. I wish I could buy it in Australia!! I really hope that I can return to Carrygerry one day. Thanks Gillian and Niall.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review I am really happy that you enjoyed your 3 day stay with us. I must confess the Three Fruit Marmalade is actually made by Niall I am afraid I cant take the credit!! We will have to look at shipping it out to you in Australia. Hopefully we will see you again over this side of the world. Hope you enjoyed the remainder of your trip in Europe.

My daughter, grandaughter and I enjoyed a most pleasant stay of 7 days at Carrygerry Country House.. The atmosphere was quite relaxing, the staff very accomadating, and owner, Gillian very
warm and welcoming. We enjoyed delicious breakfasts and dinners in the solarium overlooking the Shannon River in distance, and the farm animals in the pasture next door.
Our family suite was very pretty along with the most comfortable beds.
We enjoyed the courtyard and souroundings very much.
Gillian and staff served us delicious tea and cookies on several occasions in the parlor and we loved the young girls with their flute and harp on Friday evening.
This place is definitely worth the stay, all around excellence! Will be back again!

Room Tip: Family room had 2 full beds, and extra bedroom queen bedroom. Bath was lovely with jacuzzi tub. Spac...

Arrived on our way home. Had a delightful drink in the bar followed by Irish music. Amazing dinner- pork with blood pudding and salmon with mussels. Followed by a delicious toblerone cheesecake which was perfect, light and with just the right amount of sweetness. Hostess and staff are delightful. You cannot believe you are within 10 minutes of Shannon airport.
