We had a great 2 night stay here. The owners are lovely and friendly and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was fantastic both mornings and the sitting room is a lovely addition.There was also lots of lovely travel books scattered throughout the house which were lovely to browse through . We would definitely return and would recommend the b&b highly

We were allowed to check in hours early since we arrived in Ireland at 8:00 AM on a Sunday!!
We were given a very nice CLEAN room in the back of the B &B so we could take a nap before walking to the Bunratty Castle & Folk Village for dinner!! The bed was very comfortable with extra blanket which was needed!!! Breakfast was wonderful. Mary &Michael Walsh own and run this B&B themselves. They are delightful folks and have done a bang up decorating the inn!! We will definitely return if in Ireland - spend two nights but wish it had been longer!!! Easy to drive to this inn from the Shannon airport - maybe a 10 minute drive - rent a GPS with your rental car for sure cause you "cross the Roty & take the second exit" a lot!!!

Room Tip: All rooms seemed the same

We stayed here for 2 nights while at a wedding. I would highly recommend this quaint bnb to everyone. I did not want to leave. The rooms were spacious and spotless, the breakfast was delicious and the owners are very charming.

The Owens here are very lovely people. The rooms were very big but the beds were not as comfortable. The breakfast was nice enough but there was no coffee service in room or in the lobby before breakfast. This hotel was a perfect distance from Shannon Airport for our last night in Ireland, and the breakfast was early enough for us to make our flight.

We arrived in the later afternoon. All other hotels,b&b sand boutique hotels were sold out as there was a conference. The lady that welcomed us was short spoken and seemed to be frustrated with us. Told us to leave the key over there and pointed in a general direction. It was a shame that the castle we came to see was not found to be open. But the bed was comfortable. The room was clean and we had a nice Irish meal and the restaurant on site. Thanks for the stay

I stayed here the first two nights of my bike tour and was impressed with how well taken care of this B&B is. Located on entry to Bunratty, has good location and good food. Very comfortable. Breakfast has a good choice and the owners will make a full breakfast if you ask. Nice way to start our tour.

I spent one night at the courtyard before leaving Ireland. My room was ready for me when I arrived. The Internet connection is excellent, they have different ones for different points in the house. Quiet and absolutely comfortable stay. Clean as anything. My bathroom was lovely. Offered tv in my bedroom as well. Breakfast was perfect - continental style or eggs/Irish breakfast depending on what you wanted. Fantastic couple who own/run the place. Would recommend to anyone and would stay again.
