Bunratty Castle Hotel is situated directly across the street from the historic medieval Bunratty Castle. It is a luxury-type hotel offered at a budget price. The amenities, especially the pool and spa room, are very good. The bar is great, as are the 'Creamery' and 'Durty Nelly' restaurants within a few hundred yards of the property. The 'executive' rooms on...

This is a great location if you are planning on visiting Bunratty Folk Park. It's also close to the shops located at Bunratty as well. The hotel itself is charming and the rooms were very clean. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful during our stay. The breakfast here was just okay. We would stay here agin.

We stayed two nights at this hotel. Some say its old, we say its charming. There is old as in run down, and old as in, this place has character. We found the rooms comfortable and the breakfast on par with the typical Irish breakfast. We easily explored the Cliffs and Doolin from here. Ate dinner at the Creamery across...

Not without it's charms, this spacious old hotel is from another era. Large guest rooms with wifi and large bathroom. Dated fixtures. Lots of water pressure in the shower, but a complicated shower control setup. Decent breakfast offerings.

If you are flying in or out of Shannon the Bunratty Castle Hotel is a great place to stay; it's only about a 15 minute drive from the airport, and it is located at majestic Bunratty Castle which is a lovely base for your first or last night in Ireland. You can walk to the castle, to several good restaurants...
