“Very nice with great location”
Reviewed 24 February 2014

Just returned from a two night stay. All in all a very good hotel and it gave me nothing that I could complain about. The check in folks were extremely helpful and friendly and some of the best I encounter on my frequent travels. I am sorry to say i did not eat on site so can't comment on the food. Rooms were a bit above average with all the amenities you need (hairdryer, iron, coffee/tea maker, TV) and the bed was very comfortable. Location wise this one can't be beat. A short jaunt off the main road and right across the street from the Bunratty Castle which is a must see. Two nearby pubs of which one (The Creamery) has excellent food and a small shopping complex adjacent to the hotel as well. Hotel offers free wifi to boot but is a tad slow.

The hotel looks a bit tired in their furnishings but nothing was ratty or really worn. I would definetely stay here again.

Just back from staying a night in Bunratty on a shopping trip to Limerick with my sister. Its a good , well run hotel with pleasant staff. We had a really good special offer package and had a nice meal in the restaurant. The room was good, very clean and had tea/coffee making facilities, an iron and board and nice ensuite. We found the beds to be very comfortable. There is a pleasant bar but we opted to take our drinks in the Lobby off of reception which is comfortable and really nicely decorated.Also the breakfast in the morning had plenty options. Lots of parking in the front of the hotel. I will be back !

Room Tip: We had a room overlooking a small courtyard.

Recently came for a long weekend with my family to celebrate my birthday. First impressions WOW.... The staff are so friendly and helpful and would always go out of their way to help.
We stayed in a family room which was very clean and spacious. Breakfast was lovely with a wide variety of food to choose from a full English breakfast to fruit cereal etc. You could even ask for things such as fried eggs or hot chocolate and they would happily do this for you. The lounge area in the hotel is lovely and spacious with a fire round one set of very comfortable sofa's, ideal if you just fancy a quiet chill out and a drink from the bar. We arrived a couple of days after Ireland had a major storm which saw trees uprooted, and power down. However this did not effect the service in anyway as the hotel was running off a generator. The pool is good if you fancy a quick dip with a steam room and jacuzzi, there is also a gym with a wide variety of equipment. The hotel is ideally situated with a couple of bars/restaurants, a couple of shops with an ATM and Bunratty Castle and Folk Park are all just a short walk down the hill. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, and I cannot wait to return soon.

Nice hotel, clean. Friendly attentive staff. Disappointed only set menu for three courses available in restaurant for our stay, no option to choose just one course. Bar food was great and good value for money though.

Convenient loacation to Bunratty Castle -- would only stay one night. Crowded with many tour groups and buses staying there. Rooms are dated, but will say they are working through the hotel to replace worn carpeting, etc. to spruce up. The breakfast buffet was very good -- only problem was the line fed in from two ends so the flow was not good.

Attended a wedding here recently. The hotel is lovely & the staff really friendly. We found the room warm, cosy, spotless & comfortable with lovely décor. Nice toiletries & plenty of towels etc.. the wedding reception was wonderful and the setting amazing. We really enjoyed the Irish music in the bar after the wedding had finished up. There is plenty to do close to the hotel - spa, wonderful food in the Creamery, shopping, the Castle & Folk park & of course Durty Nellys.. The only thing I didn't like were the sheets.. not sure if they are polyester or what but we were both saturated in sweat all night... this they could address fairly easily with cotton sheets. Other than that, a really lovely stay.. thank you.
