Our stay was fantastic. The room was large and spacious - with an excellent bathroom size. Breakfast in the morning was delicious and had a variety of side options to go along with the main course. Trish was very welcoming and had great tips for the rest of our travels!

Briar Lodge is lovely. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the garden, lovely. The entire family was impressed with the hospitality and graciousness of the owner. Breakfast was delicious. She accommodated us a half hour early to ensure we were at the airport on time. We highly recommend the Briar Lodge. It is convenient to the Shannon Airport.

A very nice BnB with a heartful host. I would stay there again! And of course there was tea for two prepared. The house was placed in a lovely neighborhood with closeness to restaurant, pubs and a beautiful castle we unfortunately didn't have time to visit. We ate at The Creamary bar.
