Briar Lodge is lovely. The rooms are tastefully decorated and the garden, lovely. The entire family was impressed with the hospitality and graciousness of the owner. Breakfast was delicious. She accommodated us a half hour early to ensure we were at the airport on time. We highly recommend the Briar Lodge. It is convenient to the Shannon Airport.

However, the Lodge was immaculate, the bedrooms were good sized, and the beds were comfortable. The proprietor was very nice and super helpful giving us information about places to eat and things...

Some of us took a taxi back but others walked back to the B & B. The rooms were clean and bright and the owner very helpful. Breakfast was very good and served...

We spent our first night in Ireland here and it was perfect. This is not far from Shannon and would be a good place to spend time as you arrive from Shannon Airport or as a stay while exploring Ireland around Shannon.
