If you are looking for the best B&B in Ireland look no further than Headley Court. Bunratty castle is just around the corner & all of the west coast is an easy day trip from here. But what makes Headley Court special is the owner, Kathleen. We found friendly people all over Ireland but Kathleen is over the top. She...

Once again I returned to this wonderful country - this time to collect the keys to my charming Irish cottage. I would not have found it without Kathleen's help. As it needs a little work before moving in, I spent another four days at Headley Court and Kathleen was invaluable in pointing me in the right direction regarding tradesmen and...

Modern, clean, spacious, marvelous breakfas, Kathleen is the perfect B&B hostess. We liked this B&B so much we used it twice in the same week. It is located very convenient to Shannon Airport, only 15 minutes to the terminal. We loved this B&B.

I travel to Ireland often on business. My preferred airport is Shanon so I stay in Bunratty on my last night in the country. Over the years I have stayed at many different places in Bunratty but my favorite B&B is Headley Court. It is hard to beat the warmth and comfort I find there. Super clean rooms, a lovely...

Really enjoyed our night at Headley House. Don’t understand a couple reviews that said the setting wasn’t nice. We thought the setting was great, easy to get to and quite as well. Kathleen was a very welcoming host. Did the medieval banquet at Bunratty. Headley is right down the road about a mile from the Bunratty parking lot making it...

Kathleen is a gem! She went above and beyond what I think is needed for a client. I'm not a B&B expert and ended up coming late, like you would to a hotel... she wasn't even mad at me. The room was great, breakfast plentiful and conversations with her very pleasant! She even wrote to me while on my trip...

We spent our last two nights with Kathleen and everything was great. The breakfasts were scrumptious, the rooms were comfortable and the service was great. We couldn't have asked for a nicer home or experience to end our vacation. We will go back and stay with Kathleen again on our next trip! Brian & Cathy

We had reserved through this site and when we didn't get an email confirmation called the proprietor. She assured us we had a room, but when we got there she had no record, and did not find another place for us, we ended up in a hotel near the airport which is not the experience we wanted for our last...

I have a few issues with this very disappointing (harmful) review. I have no doubt that these guests sought or browsed for lodging here, yet there was no actual reservation completed. The second guest never left the car, while this lady came to 'check' if they had a room. It is in my own best interest AND deeply in my nature...

What a wonderful introduction to my 3 weeks stay in Ireland. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. We had complete use of the open areas and they were all very cozy. Kathleen couldn't be more helpful with her tips for travel and availability in responding to our questions. The breakfast was delicious with an added touch of fresh flowers....

We stayed here for one night at the end of our trip to be closer to Shannon Airport since we needed to check in for our flight early in the morning. Our room was very spacious and clean, great for a quick one night stay that we needed it for. Unfortunately, we did not have time to eat breakfast in...
