Our tour spent one night here after the medieval banquet at Bunratty Castle, and I was pleasantly surprised by the hotel. Our tour noted that the property carried a three-star rating, but it looks like it recently earned a fourth star. In actuality, the property probably lies in between and would carry three stars akin to the typical Hampton Inn...

We were a group of 20 people, from aged 7 up to the 50th wedding anniversary couple. Cannot recommend highly enough. From check in to check out - they put the anniversary couple in an executive suite - complimentary- their afternoon tea was AMAZING. The brekkies are the nicest I've had in a hotel; so fresh from the pancake machine...

Hotel is in a good location, but the bedroom was not. Be prepared for a long walk to reach some of the rooms. Ours was clean and comfortable when we finally got there! Both nights we stayed, the restaurant was fully booked and a very long wait for a table in the bar area so we ate out each evening....

The hotel was dirty and there were bugs in the room. Breakfast was lousy and not included in the room price. Bartender could not make a Manhattan and was 'cafeteria style'. Bunratty is a tourist trap.

Spacious bedroom and separate sitting area to relax, large bathroom with oversized bathtub, separate shower and sink area. Our king size bed was very comfortable with nice linen. Grounds were like a park, flowers and trees. Nice bar and restaurant on site.

Ate here for Valentines. Set menu was great value and we really enjoyed our meal. I have never had steak cooked ao perfectly..it was really spot on. Service a little slow but given the meal was so nice it was easy to overlook the slower service. Most definitely going back.

We visited this hotel for Sunday lunch and were totally underwhelmed by the visit.Firstly our booking hadn't been recorded so we had to find tables and push them together ourselves in the bar area.The tables wer high and quiet unsuitable for small children so it was a constant struggle to keep them safe.The food was of poor quality.and expensive Some...

We stayed at this hotel after visiting Bunratty castle. The price was a bit high but it turned out there was a wedding there and they were packed. It was very difficult to check in, find parking and get to our rooms let alone get back out of them again to go to dinner. There needs to be a way...
