Close to Bunratty CastlePosted Oct 2, 2017
Location: shopping, pubs, and touring
Wonderful hotel and location to shopping, dining, and the Bunratty Castle. If you have a chance to do a medieval meal do it. It is fantastic.

Nice hotel; close to Bunratty Castle and Folk PartPosted Oct 1, 2017
Pros: Lobby and reception stagg
Cons: Food quality and service
Location: Next to the Folk park and castle. Once you attend the dinner shows, castle and folk park, not much else to do in the immediate area.
When you arrive the lobby is very pleasing with the fragrance of all of the fresh flowers. However once you leave the lobby it is evident that the other areas of the hotel are not as well maintained. The lobby staff was pleasant and helpful. The wait staff was scarce and inattentive in the bar area. The hotel has many tour buses and they did not plan well to have breakfast service well staffed or food hot and fresh. The hotel is fine for a basic one or two nights if you want to be convenient to the Folk Park. They are the only hotel next to the Folk park..

Lively hotel in an historic locationPosted Sep 18, 2017
Located in a beautiful historic and quaint area the hotel is perfectly situated. The hotel itself is beautifully furnished and appointed. Our room was spotlessly clean, comfortable and spacious. The hotel has many extra amenities as well as restuarants and bars. Just a short stroll down from the hotel are other restuarants and a lovely old pub. The night we were there, the hotel was conducting a wedding function and was a superb venue for this too. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a lovely place to stay.

Good location and nice hotelPosted Sep 13, 2017
Pros: location, nice breakfast included. Clean and neat.
Cons: We didn't mind that there were events going on every day (ie weddings, baptisms, etc...) but some people may not want so much activity.
Location: 2 very good pubs and Bunratty Castle and its grounds. There is also a nice smaller shopping plaza very close.
The hotel was clean and pretty. There a many weddings and events that are going on at the hotel. We liked the location because there were nice pubs within walking distance to eat at and the Bunratty Castle was across the street (so we could walk to the Bunratty Castle Banquet). Also, it was within 1 hr from the Cliffs of Moher and Galway city.

Tatty, tired hotel. Rude staff. Noisy room. Disgusting room service food. Filthy teaspoons on tea tray. Loose dirty tiles in bathroom. Stains all over room carpet. Absolutely vile.

Very convenient for last night in IrelandPosted Sep 5, 2017
Pros: Convenience! See above.
Cons: Carpet is the room 425 was shredded near the bathroom.
Location: See above
Great location! Walk across the street to Bunratty Castle and Folk Village, Medieval Banquet, Durty Nellies, last minute shopping at Blarney Woolen Mills, and restaurants. About 10 minutes to Shannon airport, and a gas station on the way... to fill up your rental car. The hotel is beautiful, parking easy, and room was clean and comfortable. Pillows could have been softer, but that is just my own preference. The shower had great pressure, also a personal preference of mine, Breakfast the next morning was also good. All and all, a very comfortable stay for our last night of our amazing 12 night trip around beautiful Ireland!

Wedding StayPosted Aug 30, 2017
Pros: Not much
Cons: More staff - more upkeep place is deteriorating rapidly - relies on its location which in fact is not that near the castle
Location: Castle - Folk Village - Okay
Disappointed having booked a family room once checked in we found the room had not been cleaned at all beds unmade coffee cups everywhere bloodied tissue in bathroom Traipse all the way back to reception 20 min wait then booked into another family room this time on 2nd floor miles away Room okay to poor worn out Flood from leaks in main reception , lift offline for a short while Repairs in toilets shoddy with screws fixed through panelled walls and left exposed Not one I would recommend
