We stayed at Avarest for one night as it is close to the University of Limerick where our daughter is doing her study abroad. Close to the city, but in a lovely country setting. Our room was extremely comfortable with a double bed/single bed arrangement. Deirdre was a wonderful, friendly person, her breakfast was marvelous. It is very convenient to...

Very nice B&B. Beds were about the same as the rest as the B&B's we stayed in (too hard for me, but fine for everybody else). Shower had great water pressure and temperature. Hostess was kind enough to order pizza for us for dinner. They do have wireless internet and a computer guests can use (old, slow, and outdated, but...

My husband and I just got back from a 10 day trip to Ireland where we drove around the Southern half and stayed at 4 different B&B's. This one was by far our favorite. Deirdre was the most welcoming hostess and had the most adorable children who welcomed us as well. The house is bright and warm, and only a...

The Avarest is a wonderful B&B. The bedrooms are spacious and extremely clean and the breakfasts are quality. Deirdre and her family are wonderful and will make you feel right at home. Having traveled to Ireland many times I enjoy staying at local B&B's and I highly recommend the Avarest. The location is perfect: 10 minute drive to/from Shannon Airport...

We stayed in Bunratty for one day, and we hopped off the bus only to discover that the B&B was nowhere near walking distance. Fortunately for us, the owner actually came and picked us up, and later drove us to the folk park and castle! He was very helpful and accommodating, even though we had to leave before breakfast in...

After 18 days in Ireland, this is THE friendliest, cleanest B & B around. The location is rural but within a couple of minutes of the freeway (dual carriageway) and less than 10 minutes from the Shannon Airport. The entire Western and Southern part of Ireland is within a quick drive. The rooms are large, modern and very clean. You...

Avarest is clean, bright, warm and modern. Handicapped facilities ae available. We stayed there for our last night before flying home. We stayed up late using Avarest's wireless internet and Deirdre kept us company. She made us feel like friends not just guests. We thought my father lost his money pouch in the airport on the way home and he...

Our group of 7 was greeting warmly by Deirdre and her lovely family. Her children were absolutely adorable and it was a momentous occasion as one of her twin sons had just lost a tooth and was eagerly awaiting the tooth fairy. We were homesick after 10 days of traveling and was nice to feel the warmth of this family....

So happy with our recent stay at Avarest, we stayed last year and knew we would be back. Deirdre keeps a spotlessly clean home, the beds are comfortable, the shower superb and the conversation warm and inclusive. The children are a delight, so quietly well-mannered, and friendly. It made us feel so good when one of the twins remarked, "I...
