All the wonderful things everyone said were absolutely true, so I won't reiterate them. Evidently there was another couple upstairs, but I never heard them. I saw them as we were leaving.
Mary even made my daughter a little breakfast to eat in the car, so she could sleep a little longer. I really appreciated Mary's thoughtfulness.
There were only two downsides. (1) I could not get internet anywhere but the living room. I was in the downstairs front bedroom. This was a huge annoyance to me planning my route etc. for the next day. (2) There were no blackout curtains, so it was light in the room until 11pm and sunlight at 5:30am again. We were there in July. If I would have remembered sleeping masks, it wouldn't have mattered.
So, if you need internet stay elsewhere. If you don't, this was like staying at your favorite aunt's house. It is great for visiting Bunratty.
