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.

We asked for recommendations from the owner and he suggested going to the pub right next door that we had a delicious dinner at and to go to Dirty Nellies down... More

Our room was a decent size as well and had lots of windows. The only downside... More

Such a treat to walk into such a large room and have a big bathroom as well. The guest lounge is like a cozy lodge and a perfect spot to gather and chat. 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... More

Within walking distance of Bunratty Castle and several restaurants. Very friendly owners and HUGE rooms! A sprawling facility that is very quiet. Bathrooms were also large and nicely updated. Flat screen TVs and settees in most rooms. Large common area with sofas and fireplace. Delicious, speedy breakfast. You will enjoy this place!

Really enjoyed our stay at this lovely B&B. My only complaint the mattress was too firm for me. Other than that, it was great. Very convenient location for shopping, eating, and sightseeing. Would definitely stay there again when we return to Ireland.
