Bunratty is a lovely place to stay but castle gardens run by rent an Irish cottage is not the place to stay. Ideally located in the heart of the village these three bedroom and four bedroom houses should offer everything. Grounds are run down, houses need serious upgrading, no money is being spent here. We rented a three bedroom, old...

The double and 2 twin bedrooms (twin rooms were ensuite) along with a main bathroom suited our party of 6 adults perfectly. Kitchen was adequately fitted out enabling eating in a possibility if required. Bunratty had a number of excellent pubs and restaurants so eating out was very convenient. As was touring the Clare Coast line and the other tourist...

This was such a fun place to stay! The rooms were nice, clean and cozy. There was a total for 5 beds. One was a queen in one room, with its own shower/bath. Be advised all of the showers are small, about 3ft by 3ft. The other 2 bedrooms have 2 twin beds in each and each had its own...

We stayed in one of these "cottages"--really a Townhouse--for 6 nights, booked through Sceptre Tours. It was perfect and extremely clean! There are 3 bedrooms, 2 upstairs and both ensuite, and one downstairs with a full bath. There is a living room, a dining area and a fully-equipped kitchen, complete with a dishwasher and a small washer/dryer combo. The beds...

We stayed for a weekend in January in a 3 bedroom cottage. The heating was on for our arrival and it was lovely and comfortable. The cottage was clean and well equipped with all mod cons. It is perfect for a family. The cottages are right beside Bunratty Castle. The location was ten minutes by car from Limerick city and...

We stayed here through Sceptre tours. The 3 bedroom/3 bathroom cottage was adorable. It was so nice to have a "home" base. Having a living room to hang out in on the nights we didn't go to pubs was very comfortable. The well equipped kitchen was very helpful for a quick breakfast before exploring for the day. We found everything...

Booked a Sceptre special with air/car/rooms. Four of us shared a 2-story cottage on Oct 18. Yes, 3 bedrooms and 3 baths! Kitchen was well equipped and living room had wifi and TV with a dining room table. Not very many units were occupied in the 'off' season. Units have been repainted within 3 yrs--not a Hilton but better than...

My husband and I and two of our daughters (ages 24 and 17) visited Ireland in early July. The Bunratty was part of out vacation package and I must say it turned out to be a wonderful place to stay. Don't let first impressions turn you off. When driving in the place looks deserted. Our townhouse was very comfortable. Having...
