I spent 3 nights here prior to a group tour. It was the perfect way to acclimate to the time change. Michael and Mary are incredibly gracious and accommodating. The rooms are simple and clean. The water pressure is fantastic in the showers. The breakfast is delicious and offers plenty of fresh fruits. I spent one night alone and the...

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.

We stayed just one night at The Courtyard whilst attending a family event in the Bunratty manor just across the road. We had a most comfortable double room, spotlessly clean and really at the standard of a good 4 star hotel. Fine sized en suite with a very powerful shower. I needed to have the use of an iron and...

The location couldn't be better, spotless, spacious accommodation and an excellent breakfast. Our hosts were welcoming and informative about the local area. Bunratty village has some excellent restaurants offering seafood and steaks, craft shops and of course the castle and grounds where you are taken back in time to see the way the villagers lived. Durty Nelly's is a must...

We stayed at this B&B for just one night prior to flying back to the US. It is only 15 minutes from the Shannon airport. Our room was large and very clean. The bathroom was good size with up-to-date fixtures; water pressure in the shower was very good. The B&B is walking distance from several restaurants. Michael, the manager, was...

Over for a family wedding, relatives booked us in at the Courtyard and we really landed on our feet. Michael and Mary were such a welcoming and personable couple. Nothing was too much trouble and were happy to be flexible for breakfast when we thought we might be struggling to be up the following morning. The rooms were very comfortable...

We enjoyed spacious rooms which were very clean, very quiet and we had fantastic Irish breakfasts. We didn't use it but there was a spacious lounge area with a TV. The hosts were helpful and friendly. Would definitely like to go back there and wouldn't hesitate in recommending.

I had to come to Ireland by myself for a day prior to meeting up with friends. I was concerned about traveling alone and finding a place that was safe, comfortable and had things to do nearby. The Bunratty Courtyard was just perfect. I communicated with Michael Walsh ahead of time via email. He was most accomindating. When arriving, his...

This was the homeliest b&b so far, without feeling like you're sleeping in someone's spare bedroom. The hosts are lovely without being overbearing, and show genuine care and interest. Very accessible off the main highway. And we didn't have to lug bags upstairs, bonus!
