excellent stay very clean and friendly, right across the street from Bunratty Castle where entertainment awaits you. Then head next door for a few drinks in a true Irish pub. We stayed here while on a bus tour. Our tour ended at this Hotel and it couldn't of been a better place to bid farewell.... we were able to celebrate...

No doubt this is a very convenient hotel if you are flying out of Shannon and want to stay close by the airport. That said, they desperately need to renovate the place. Starting with the carpeting in the lobby and hallways which is terribly worn and stretched out. Painting the woodwork in the hallways and door frames should also be...

Stayed here one night while on a tour of Ireland. It was very nice and you could easily walk to some shops as well as to Bunratty Castle. The room was nice. Breakfast was standard but filling enough. Found a little extra "bonus" to the hotel (although it's not part of the hotel itself) while just exploring around it. Just...

We stayed here on our 4th visit in 3 years, over the Easter break for a week. We had booked a family room but on the first night my husband couldn't sleep as he found the bed uncomfortable. He contacted reception who said they would see what they could do. On the morning after our 2nd night we had a...

It can be stupid but I got the hotel and night before and important meeting. In the bathroom no conditioner... So small but very important for me that moment. Call the reception begging for help and the answer was not friendly or helpful. Just not, we do not provide. I offer to pay if they sell it somewhere aaround. The...

We had asked for a quiet room as we were flying in to Shannon Airport and I was hiring a car for 8 days (10.30 pm arrival). The room 129 was next to a crowd of people shouting and laughing so we were moved to a room on the second floor - there was still a lot of noise from...

We stayed here the first and last night of our trip. The location is perfect for arrival/departure from Shannon Airport. The staff was delightful and extremely helpful. I was concerned about some of the reviews but we completely enjoyed our stay. The rugs in some areas should be replaced but our room was very nice. It was a large room...

Good location for arrival\departure from Shannon Airport. The hotel is dated but clean, the bar food and the breakfast are both good(minus the scrambled eggs!!) and the breakfast staff are very attentive without being intrusive. The bathroom was clean and spacious but the shower was very disappointing with little or no hot water. We did not request a room with...

Stayed at the Bunratty Castle Hotel recently. The Hotel was generally clean and neat, the service was average with our check in handled very poorly. Despite having e-mail confirmation and a confirmation number the hotel did not have us booked in.
