Right across the street from the castle. Spacious, clean, lovely breakfast, comfortable bed... At a very reasonable price... Take time to see the ok'd church and cemetery behind the hotel... Good example of Cromwell's efforts in the distant past...

Had a nice stay at this hotel. Room was very comfortable and clean. Food was good and reasonably priced. Staff were friendly but not as keen to help as in most other places I've stayed. Our stay was brief but without issue! Nice hotel with plenty of potential!

This hotel is tired, dirty and badly in need of repair. The rooms had cracked or missing tile, slimey worn carpets, old scratched and chipped furniture and damaged walls. While walking around the exterior we noticed laundry bins on a porch with sheets flowing out onto the banisters. The hotel was a mess inside and outside. It was not anything...

One of the best nights ever. Fab food. Professional service. Beautiful setting. Spacious rooms. A great party venue. With lots to do in the local area. Many thanks to managers Dave and Marguerite. Could not have been more attentive. I will be back.

Room was spacious, paint work was really badly scuffed, pictures were screwed crookedly to wall, toilet flush didn't work- spoke with a fellow guest, this was an issue in their room also. Jets in pool also broken, wall paper peeling from wall in bar. Hotel has great potential, it's in a lovely busy spot. Perhaps they don't have to try...

Shown to a clean quiet comfortable room on check-in. Went across the road to Durty Nelly's for a few pints in the sunshine before sitting down to a wedding Banquet at the Hotel. Loads of well trained and polite staff made this a slick and tasty meal before dancing the night away. Breakfast in the morning hit the spot. Will...

Front desk personnel were unfriendly and not helpful at all. We had booked two rooms and felt as if we were given the worst one since it was over kitchen with unloading to dumpsters etc underneath us. Would not recommend this hotel to anyone

We had a room with 2 queen beds for our family of 4. It was clean, quiet and ample size for the family. The breakfast was average and the typical Irish breakfast fare, but decent. It is directly across from the Bunratty Castle, which was very convenient as we booked the medieval banquet there. That was an excellent experience, and...

We stayed for a couple of nights while exploring Ireland. The staff was very courteous and friendly. I had booked online and the check in process was pain free. The place is quaint and charming but it is a little more old school (traditional). My daughter and I were travelling with my parents. That being said, my parents who are...
