Terrible. Stay away! Unhelpful staff, broken phone and AC and nasty breakfast. Asked 3 times for someone to come take a look to see if they could get it working. No one ever showed up.

Beautiful, comfortable hotel. Delicious breakfast. The only change I'd like would be to make the restaurant dining room larger.

No bottled water in our room while our friends had bottles in theirs. We asked the front desk and their response was, "go buy some from the vending machines". It was the attitude more than anything else that was irritating.

Excellent hotel and easy walking distance to Durty Nellys or Creamery Bar for a drink and a bite to eat.

Great stay. High quality room. The fitness room needs refurbished.

hotel location was great had a wonderful time at the creamery and the dinner at the castle

Hotel was beautiful, clean, and allowed us to check in early. In a perfect location in walking distance to Bunratty Castle, Blarney Woolen Mills, and a few bars. Loved our stay here

The hotel was lovely, as were the grounds. Just a totally nice experience.

Loved staying at this hotel. Extremely close to castle, shopping, pubs and Shannon airport. 4 minute walk to bus to Shannon Airport.

We stayed here two nights at the beginning of our trip. It's not too far from the airport. There are little shops and the Folk Park and Castle are within walking distance. We went to the Castle Banquet the 2nd night and it was wonderful!

The lobby of the hotel is lovely but it stops there. After checking in we went up to our floor and immediately were conserned. The carpet is falling apart, walls and doors and ding up and desperate need of paint. Upon entering our room you could smell old cigarette smoke. There were burns in the carpet and bathtub. And it was supposed to be non smoking. The worst though was the MOLD! There was a water leak but the wall was never repaired. It went through the bathroom and bedroom wall. The a/c unit had also leaked and cause more mold. We quickly went back down to notify the staff, who informed us they had no idea about the mold.... The second room was better and remodeled but the hall was still in poor shape. The pool and spa are very difficult to find. There is no functioning ice machines although there are still signs for it. Would not recommended this hotel, needs some serious repairs!

The hotel is in a good location for the Bunratty Castle and Park. It was clean and the staff friendly. We arrived there a little after 3 for check in and our room was not ready yet. It took about another 30 minutes.

Very attractive hotel. Wonderful staff. Very accommodating! Great restaurant. Nice setting. Comfy beds!

This hotel is what you think of when staying in Ireland. More traditional setting, with caring staff. This is where I call home when I go to Ireland, they make you feel welcome and accepted into their family! Thanks for a good stay - see ya soon!

This hotel was right across from Bunratty castle. Bunratty was my favorite experience from our entire trip! Great castle and quaint little village. The hotel was beautiful and the front desk staff was wonderful! The wifi was spotty and the staff in the dining area weren't the friendliest. It was a good experience overall!

The primary reason I booked at the Bunratty Castle Hotel was because they provided a shuttle to Limerick airport. When I checked in I was told this was not the case and they would book me a taxi. They forgot, which wasn't too important because I only had to wait about 10 minutes the next morning, but it did cost an extra $20. Luckily, I booked using Orbucks or it would have been a really expensive mistake. What they lacked in promised service, was more than made up by the hotel's location just across the street from the actual castle itself. I thoroughly enjoyed touring the castle and the strolling around the village. I was unable to take advantage of the free breakfast because of my early flight, but the food in the pub was decent (great chips).

Pretty poor showing in lots of important items. Primarily - lousy bed, cheap, hard. It was quite warm and the AC remote was missing. As they had kept putting us off about why there was no wifi, we didn't even bother to ask desk. Front desk man in morning refused to print our boarding passes for us. Hotels always do this if they don't a computer with printer. 3/4 lights in the hallway near our room were broken - only bare bulb. faucet in bathroom broken. Scratchy, unpleasant towels and sheets. Breakfast adequate. not as good as smaller hotel we stayed in in Cobh. We stayed here years ago; it was great. Big disappointment. We won't return.

We booked and paid for a deluxe room. When we got into the room the toilet didn't flush properly. We addressed the issue at the front desk. The clerk told me I must not know how to properly use the two-button system for flushing. (Mind you, we'd been in Ireland for ten days and had plenty of experience with this type of system.) She insisted it was my error. The only correction?-downgrade our room (but not the price) so the "tourist" could have a handle flush toilet and poor water pressure. The front desk treated us like transients with little courtesy. Bunratty Castle and Folk Park is a worthwhile stop but this hotel is worth passing up.

Our hotels were clean and cheery. We found the staff to be pleasant and very willing to help in any way possible.

The hotel rooms were very nice, clean, and pleasant. The only criticisms I have are regarding the pub and the breakfast. We tried to get a sandwich in the pub after we arrived and the wait was very long. They need more help during busy times. Breakfast was buffet and only offered limited choices, only scrambled eggs, not prepared any other way, no pastries etc. The elevator was also broken when we arrived.
