It was the perfect end to an adventure in Ireland. What a lovely, exceptionally clean, beautifully decorated big, quiet room in walking distance of town and Nelly’s Bar and food and Bunratty Castle.

This B&B is located right next to a number of tourist attractions, has large comfortable rooms and the most pleasant hosts you could imagine. If you need to know about local restaurants, attractions or shopping just ask and you get very good recommendations.

The full Irish breakfast was delicious and there was an attractive sideboard with buffet items, such as cereals, yogurts and fruit. Michael and Mary are lovely, warm...
