Economical B&B. The owners were nice, helpful and served a good breakfast. This is a nice place for a nights stopover on your journey. The room could use more electrical outlets and is a little outdated but it was very clean and a great deal for the money.

A 10-minute drive from the town centre (tiny but buoyant at times). It is like heaven if you are looking for a restful night after some journey. A warm welcome, lots of attention and a lovely Irish breakfast to start the day. Only make sure there is no festival or big GAA match in town because this guesthouse may be...

We spent two nights and enjoyed our stay very much. Anne was welcoming and Pauline ROCKED! The location wasn't too far outside the town of Ennis, however, too far to walk there. Our room was very clean, great water pressure in the shower, coffee/tea set up in our room. Breakfasts were super. Wifi could be a little spotty. We didn't...

My family and I stayed at the Ardilaun Guesthouse for one night on our travels around Ireland. The owners were extremely welcoming and offered us a second room at a discounted price. Additionally, we were having issues making a telephone call with our phone (we're from the US), and when we couldn't get through, they were nice enough to let...

Throughly enjoyed our stay at the Ardilaun Guesthouse. The beds were very comfortable, there was plenty of well thought out storage, and it was such a relaxing and peaceful place to return to after a long day. The home cooked breakfast was an incredible treat to wake up to each morning. We loved sitting out back and reading Yeats by...

Lovely clean and easy to find. Warm welcome. Very good rooms. Breakfast written menu grossly understates the meal! I picked Bacon, Sausage and Egg. I got 3 slices of back bacon cooked soft - my favourite way! 2 sausages, tomato cooked again the way I like them, black pudding, white pudding and mushrooms! Tea, toast and brown bread with marmalades...
