“Great Staff”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 July 2014

Stayed here for one night on a groupon deal, breakfast and dinner included. Excellent value. Decent size rooms, very clean but a bit dated and there was a large damp stain on the ceiling in our room. The staff make this hotel and this in itself would entice you back. The hotel looks impressive from the outside as it is styled to resemble a castle. Lots of parking. Only downside really is Lisdoonvarna is the nearest town if you want to go for a drink or a meal but I'd really recommend you don't. We gave it a try but there is no nice pub there and the hotels aren't great either. Also the hotel bar was closed when we arrived back at 11:20 p.m., a bit early I would have thought.

Room Tip: Room above the conservatory can be noisy if people are leaving early.

Went there for a school trip and it was very satisfactory. We were given a 3 course meal every night and all the staff were very tolerant of us. Nice enough there. Have sports facilities. Economy Holiday.
Cliffs of Moher very close.

Service here is excellent and the staff are helpful and welcoming. The building is an 1960's idea of what a castellated manor might look like. Not to my taste but the rooms were large and the bathroom good. The location is not terribly convenient as Lisdoonvarna is perhaps a 25 minute walk along a narrow country road and the hotel is situated in the countryside so options are limited. The hotel food is limited and uninteresting. It seems to be a stop for bus tours overnighting and there is nothing wrong with that as it brings some life to the place which can seem rather deserted.

We had a pleasant stay in the hotel. The service and the personal are really nice. They were helpful, kind. This sis what I appreciate the most.
It's clean. The decoration is not really modern buit it's a matter of taste.

I was with the Vintage Motorcycle club as was the reviewer Fran-Maria below, I can only echo the sentiments made by Fran and Maria. A great welcome was given to all of us by Svenja and her staff. We were all delighted with our stay, the rooms, the food, plenty of room to sit and relax. The staff were excellent, and made our stay one to remember. The Burren Castle is a wee gem of a place, well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Our room face onto the side of the hotel. As the hotel is in a secluded location I would not see an...
