Lovely hosts: warm, obliging but discreet. Very clean, quiet hotel with comfortable mattress. Convenient location - perfect for when visiting Bunratty Castle. Gluten free toast and cereal at breakfast.

I recently stayed at the Courtyard in Bunratty for this first time and was pleasantly surprised with this B&B. The room was huge -- plenty of room for 3 people and the bathroom was very large as well... Good location - close to Bunratty Village & Castle... Rooms where clean too.

Spent first two nights in Ireland with Mike and Mary prior to our bicycle tour with Cycle Holidays Ireland. As others have stated the accommodations are very clean and the village of Bunratty is a short walk from the B&B.

Mary and Michael are great hosts-friendly, warm, and welcoming. The room more than accommodated the 3 of us and was clean, quiet, and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious and super fast. Only a 10 minute drive to the airport!

This was the perfect location after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and wanting to visit Bunratty Castle the next morning.

Michael & Mary are wonderful hosts. They went out of their way to find me a driver to take me to Tipperary when I was a bit slow in deciding if I would go or not, all depending on the weather and when I finally decided, yes, the taxis were all taken. Mary engaged her brother for a day hire...
