Great location, lovely grounds, pleasant owners and reasonably priced. Right across the street from the bus stop, a short walk to the castle and an amazing restaurant right next door.The bathroom was the largest out of the 5 places we stayed during our vacation. Our room was a decent size as well and had lots of windows. The only downside...

Such a treat to walk into such a large room and have a big bathroom as well. The guest lounge is like a cozy lodge and a perfect spot to gather and chat. The full Irish breakfast was delicious and there was an attractive sideboard with buffet items, such as cereals, yogurts and fruit. Michael and Mary are lovely, warm...

I spent 3 nights here prior to a group tour. It was the perfect way to acclimate to the time change. Michael and Mary are incredibly gracious and accommodating. The rooms are simple and clean. The water pressure is fantastic in the showers. The breakfast is delicious and offers plenty of fresh fruits. I spent one night alone and the...

Within walking distance of Bunratty Castle and several restaurants. Very friendly owners and HUGE rooms! A sprawling facility that is very quiet. Bathrooms were also large and nicely updated. Flat screen TVs and settees in most rooms. Large common area with sofas and fireplace. Delicious, speedy breakfast. You will enjoy this place!

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely B&B. My only complaint the mattress was too firm for me. Other than that, it was great. Very convenient location for shopping, eating, and sightseeing. Would definitely stay there again when we return to Ireland.

We stayed just one night at The Courtyard whilst attending a family event in the Bunratty manor just across the road. We had a most comfortable double room, spotlessly clean and really at the standard of a good 4 star hotel. Fine sized en suite with a very powerful shower. I needed to have the use of an iron and...

The location couldn't be better, spotless, spacious accommodation and an excellent breakfast. Our hosts were welcoming and informative about the local area. Bunratty village has some excellent restaurants offering seafood and steaks, craft shops and of course the castle and grounds where you are taken back in time to see the way the villagers lived. Durty Nelly's is a must...
