We had booked one night at the Bunratty Castle Hotel in order to be close to the Bunratty Castle for a prebooked Medieval Banquet. The Hotel was just across the main street from the Castle, very conveniently located. The grounds and Hotel were nicer than we expected. Our room was spacious and clean. Breakfast, included in our room rate, was very good with many options.

We stayed at this hotel for one night as part of a Trafalgar Tour. The hotel was elegant and nicely furnished. Our room was average; we wished we had a safe and a fridge. Our t.v. remote also did not work, however, the hotel staff came to our room and tried to make it function. The hotel is extremely well-located. We attended the Medieval Banquet at the Castle and then went to Durty Nelly's pub. A good time was had by everyone in our group. I would certainly recommend this hotel for its cleanliness, convenient location, and hospitality.

Beautiful exterior. For the price, the rooms were decent sized and well laid out but the place is a little tired and worn. It needs better management.

Rips in the material on the headboard, torn seats with tape covering the tears in the breakfast room - just unacceptable and a bad reflection on the management.

The breakfast was adequate. All staff were very pleasant and welcoming.

Excellent location for Bunratty and the bars and Shannon airport. Nice pool (indoor). Bring a swimming hat if you are female - odd rule in Irish swimming pools.

The hotel is just next to Bunratty Castle for history and Durty Nellys for a meal. The rooms were spacious, the staff were friendly and service oriented. During our 2 night stay, there was a wedding party going on. We ate the hotel restaurant where the service and the quality of the food were excellent. Breakfast could be better though with more things to select from. There are som shopping facilities just outside the hotel. We were lucky enough to experience sunshine during our stay and had the chance to sit in the hotel garden with a glass of cider and a blue sky. The hotel has a spa and swimming pool facilities and the staff there are very helpful. It´s a place we would come back to.

We stayed here for one night and it's a pity it wasn't for longer. The hotel is lovely and even though we arrived quite late there was no trouble getting food in the bar. It was great value for money and I would recommend it as a base to explore the surrounding area.

I had to be in Shannon for a couple of days and stayed one night in this very pleasant hotel. It's close enough to Shannon but it feels like being in the middle of the Irish country side, located in the medieval village of Bunratty. The room was very good, no complaints there. And staff was very friendly: although the kitchen was closed by the time I arrived, the woman at the bar prepared me a something to eat just the same.
