Of the 6 B&B’s we stayed at during our 21 days in Ireland Bunratty Villa will have the most memories for us. We picked Bunratty Villa because it was close to Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and a good choice it was. We were greeted by a mature Woman who turned out to be one of the Owners Mothers, she led us to a room out front that had a king size bed, we told her the room was nice but we weren’t crazy about the bed, she then led us to the rear of the building and showed us a room with a regular sized bed and we agreed it would be fine. Upon opening the curtains we found out that our room faced a large Horse Ranch, it was a lovely view. After we finished unpacking we went to check out the Guest lounge and met Jackie who owns Bunratty Villa with her husband Jack, the older woman we had met earlier was Jackie’s Mother, Jackie then brought us a Pot of Tea and Cookies and we had a nice sit down, Jackie is the type of person who makes you feel instantly at Home. Upon arising the first morning we opened the curtains and were greeted by about 8 Horses and a Foal, when we were in the room we would watch the Horses out in the field. The Breakfast room is spacious with a large Buffet with cereal, fruit, yogurt, very good coffee, there was a Menu on the table listing what was available in a hot breakfast and contemporary Irish music playing softly in the background, Bunratty Villa served probably the best Muesli that I have ever had, lots of nuts and seeds in it. On one afternoon while we were staying there we came on around 3:30 in the afternoon and decided to sit in the Guest with our Tablets and read some email, we were there about 15 minutes when Jackie popped in and asked if we were going to be here for a while and we said yes, she disappeared and came back with a Pot of Tea and Chocolate for us, it was such a nice treat and we felt spoiled. On the day we checked out Jackie told us that her Mother wanted to say goodbye and we had hugs all around. What a great experience.
