“irish elegance right after landing at Shannon...”
Reviewed 5 August 2014

Tired from the flight from Boston to Shannnon we were pleasantly a greeted by the ruins of Bunratty Castle and folkloic town right across the road from a lovely, garden rich, very green and very well maintained country manor style sprawling hotel ! After an Irish buffet breakfast, we collapsed for few hours in our nicely appointed, large , cool room just down the corridor from the dayspa. The beds were super comfortable with puffy quilts-we overslept of course! Moderately priced.

Room Tip: They are all good.

Stayed here after our flight into Shannon. They were kind enough to let us into our room upon arrival at 8:00 a.m. The room was a perfect size for three of us, plus they put a single cot in the room so we could each have a bed. There was air conditioning! And a blow dryer!! (I'm such an American and can't help my need for those two essentials.) Castle, woolen mills and Durty Nellies rounded out our stay. Perfect!

The receptionists were extremely pleasant and helpful. The hotel is old and is in obvious need of updating, but rooms are clean and comfortable. Ample parking and green space. Very little in the immediate vicinity; recommend it as a one night stay only!

Stayed mid week for 2 nights. Room was dated but staff were excellent. We had an 8 month old with us and the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The bar food and Fibber McGees were top quality. The Spa was top quality. Great place to base yourself from for all of Clare

Stayed at this place for 2 nights. Breakfast was very good as well as bar. Elevator very creaky. A/C in room did not work very good. Asked to have some one come and look at it and they did. Said he would come back and check on it as well as bring us a fan. THIS did not happen. Very warm in room. Hotel located in a place close to Durty Nellies Very neat bar and ambiance , Creamery and Castle and Woollen Store . Also went to a traditional Irish Dinner and Dance night. EXCELLENT. Lovely place for a visit. Grounds at Bunratty Hotel very nice and well kept. We got charged 25 Euros from Shannon Airport to Hotel. Desk at Hotel said it should have only cost 18 Euros for trip. Guess taxi drivers making a good rate at expense of tourists.

This would be an ideal first place to stay after landing at Shannon Airport. It doesn't' feel at all like an airport hotel and gives you at least a little bit of an Irish feel during your stay. We did not stay there after flying in but as a good midway(ish) stop between Connemara and Killarney. For us it was perfect. Nice big rooms. We didn't have the breakfast but went to the coffee shop at the Woolen Mills.

One tip- if you reserve far in advance, check in on the price to see if it's changed. I booked our July 2014 room back in December 2013. When I, in early June, checked their site, the price on our room had dropped by HALF. So, good idea (in general) to check on the pricing of your room as your travel date approaches. In about 10 different places, this is the only one that had a price change. The management was excellent about giving me the lower rate!

Staff were very helpful and friendly.
The restaurant also had beautiful food.
Also close to Shannon airport.
Great location, facilities and hospitality.
Would definitely recommend.
