The Courtyard Guesthouse met all of our expectations. It made for easy access to various locations, such as walking distance to Bunratty Castle.

Easy access to the Shannon airport.

Mary and Michael were lovely hosts.

The rooms are very clean and spacious. Lovely history to this guesthouse.

Breakfast was one of the best ever.

We definitely recommend The Courtyard to anyone visiting this area.

Stayed here for a night after a wedding and cannot praise it highly enough.The hosts were most welcoming and friendly. The room was lovely and spacious and spotlessly clean.The breakfast was top notch. I would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend it to anyone.

Mary and Michael Walsh run such a wonderful hotel and really make guests feel at home. The went out of their way so that my son could have gluten free and dairy free breakfasts and gave us tips for what to see and do in the area. The rooms are large and spacious and there aren't any stairs to haul luggage up. Great atmosphere!!

Room Tip: From what saw all are great.

This is a big comfortable home run by a very nice couple. The room was large clean and comfortable with good wifi. Breakfast was very good and check in and out was efficient. Plenty of parking available to guests and its an easy walk to the sights of Bunratty.

The Courtyard is a great place to stay if you are visiting Bunratty or have an early flight out of Shannon. The location is great. The rooms are clean and spacious and the rates are very reasonable. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. We did not use the common rooms but they looked really nice.

Our group of 14 family members stayed in 6 rooms here. The rooms were very nice size, clean, and comfortable. The owners (Michael & Mary Walsh) were very accomodating and hospitable. Proximity to Bunratty attractions, good pubs and restaraunts, and Shannon Airport make this B & B a very good choice for incoming and outgoing passengers. Definately will be a repeat lodging for our family.
