Bunratty Castle Hotel, Bunratty
An enjoyable stay
The hotel was clean, the staff friendly, the room large and well equipped, and the hot breakfast tasty and generous. The location was a lot of fun. Being right next to the Bunratty Castle made you feel like you were staying at Disneyland. We also enjoyed the Medieval Banquet at the castle. It was conveniently located for Limerick, Shannon, and the Cliffs of Moher. My reason for not giving it 5 stars was that I had a maintenance request that was not taken care of and the housekeeping staff straightened up but did not clean surfaces that really needed it between our first and second night.

Nice but some TLC would improve property
Bunratty hotel has seen better days. Friendly staff and good area, but could use updates.

Luxury by the castle
The hotel is beautiful and in a great location. We stayed there as our last night in Ireland before our flight back to the US. The room was gigantic, the bathroom had a standing shower and a lovely bath tub. The included breakfast buffet the next morning was great. Get their well before 2 pm if you want to go into the castle across the street as it closes early to prepare for the historic dinner performances. The shops also close around 6 pm. Dirty Nellies across the street has a great fixed price menu and the cooking is fabulous. Definitely will stay here again.

Great hotel - eat elsewhere
The hotel is phenomenal, located just next to Bunratty Castle. The room beautiful and the desk staff wonderful. Main gripe? The restaurant was empty but we were told it was entirely reserved and we were not welcome without a reservation. We tried the bar. After 20 minutes of waiting for service we left. Wait staff were standing around talking and not waiting on customers. I HIGHLY recommend either Durty Nelly's Pub or The Creamery Bar across the street. We were welcomed graciously and wonderful food. Stay at the hotel, eat elsewhere and avoid the frustration.
