We holiday in Ireland yearly but normally stay in the Dingle area. This time we ventured out from Dingle to places we haven't been in awhile. Dunaree is still a great place to stay. The location is excellent, the house is beautiful and the hostess is wonderful. The room we had (number 2) was great. Well furnished with an exceptionally...

We have just returned from a weeks stay in Ireland where we stayed for one night in Bunratty at this gorgeous quaint b&b. Penny the host could not have been anymore accommodating and welcoming. The house itself and bedroom were absolutely immaculate and beautifully presented. It is located a short 2 min drive/10 min walk from Bunratty Castle and Folk...

In the country, not far from the Shannon airport, this upscale manor has nicely furnished, large rooms in the country motif. Adequate sized room and bathroom. The hosts apologized for a few items which weren't working properly (Internet, bathroom mirror light), and said they were scheduled to be repaired. They were very kind to offer a simple do-it-yourself breakfast for...

We only had one night here, as we were catching a mid-morning flight out of Shannon. Penny was a lovely & lively hostess. She had a breakfast buffet ready for us at 7:30 am. We had cereal, fruit, yogurt, home-made scones, toast and tea. We were also very happy with the pub she recommended for dinner the night before. Our...

We arrived late and had to leave early but Penny was wonderful! When I let her know we would be arriving late she made arrangements for us to get the key. Then when we informed her we had an early morning flight she made sure we had directions for the airport and where to return our car. She also set...

Stayed here one night to attend the Traditional Irish Night at the castle and then head to the Galway area. The owner here is incredibly helpful and friendly and everything went smoothly from beginning to end. You can walk to Bunratty Castle and neighbouring pubs in less than 10 minutes, or take a 2 minute drive. Our room was facing...

We stayed one night on our last day in Ireland. It is close to the Shannon airport (maybe 15-20 minutes) and close to Bunratty Castle. Of all of the B and B' we stayed in, this one was most like a home that people actually lived in. Penny was helpful and nice. Breakfast was excellent, especially the fresh scones. It...

This is a very comfy B&B just 20 minutes fromShannon airport. We wanted a place where we could rest following a not too restful overnight flight. Polly was happy to allow us early checkin so we could grab a few hours' nap before taking a refreshing afternoon walk to the neighboring Bunratty castle. The morning breakfast was delicious befre we...
