We were referred to here by another local B&B owner who was full. Kathleen was a welcoming and friendly host. She responded quickly to my booking and confirmation emails. It is conveniently located 10 -15 minutes from the airport and about 1 mile from Bunratty Castle. Location was important to us as we were arriving after an overnight flight and were not used to driving on the left. We paid more for an early arrival to take a nap. ($110 instead of $70 and well worth it.) The B&B was quiet except for some guests arriving home late at night who woke us. Although they were not being particularly loud, our room on the first floor was adjacent to the staircase/foyer so talking in normal voices carried.
The entire B&B was spotless. The room was roomy, the two queen beds comfortable and the bathroom spacious. Good shower. Plenty of hot water. There was tea making equipment in the room. There is a large comfortable common room. My daughter enjoyed playing with the electronic chess set.
The breakfast room was bright and pretty. Good breads, preserves, juice. The scrambled eggs weren’t great and the coffee a bit weak. Unless you must have coffee in the morning, go with the tea.
Because the room was not charged at double the rate for early check in, we were asked (ahead of time) to pay in cash. We didn’t see a cash machine at the airport and the nearest cash machine was at the Woolen Mills next to Bunratty Castle.
