Went last year and was great , same again this year . Nice clean hotel and the staff are friendly . Only 10 minutes from airport and bunratty village is lovely . We paid just over 100 euros a night which is very good for the quality of the hotel .

This hotel is lovely and quiet, beautiful views, clean comfortable room. We did ask for a twin but got one bed although it looked bigger than a king size so we didn't bother asking to be moved. My daughter and I were staying for a 2 night break. Quite disappointed that we couldn't get a facial or manicure as the...

Beautiful surroundings and amenities, but poorly staffed and limited offerings when there during the Christmas period. They did not have our booking from Travelocity.com when we arrived, but they did eventually honor the booking and rate once we forwarded our confirmation email to them (while at the reception.desk).

I got married here last month and I have to say I have no regrets in picking here as my venue. Heather was so nice to deal with all the way through. Everybody was raving about the food and I have to say it was gorgeous. The staff couldn't do enough for us. My husband and I stayed 3 nights...

We were really disappointed with our stay at the hotel - the breakfast was average and in fact we saw a man fall off his chair as it collapsed on him which I don't think I have ever seen before! The service was really poor overall. We expected a lot more., particularly for the price. Would not recommend or stay...

Stayed here recently for a wedding, spent 3 nights in total. Staff were professional, room was very big, clean and comfortable, food was good, breakfast to room was very good. I'm usually disappointed by quality of breakfast being delivered to room but this was good. Straight across from Bunratty Castle.

I thought we would be staying in a castle. Should have read some reviews. The hotel is located across the street from the real castle. The hotel seems like a place for golfers and conventions. It was a very nice modern hotel and is well kept. We had a bedroom with two double beds which were quite comfortable. The room...

we were at a function there recently, the hotel looks lovely on the outside and attractive on the inside, we ordered steak and a vegetarian meal, you couldnt eat the steak as it was so tough, and the vegetarian meal was bland, the staff were very poorly trained, no concept of how to serve tables and speak to the customer.
