"Excellent B&B. We booked two rooms for five us. Both were very comfortable and good-sized. Triple had two bathrooms, which was extra-nice. Mary was very pleasant and helpful - offered to make reservations for us at the medieval dinner at Bunratty Castle. Breakfast was delicious. VERY close to airport and castle. Would stay here again!"

"Just came home from Bunratty lodge, this place is wonderful, if you want peace and a stress free break go there. Mary offers clean, comfortable well equipped rooms, ours with four poster bed. Mary's breakfast has won awards this she deserves, its delicious. She is also friendly, nothing is to much trouble and will help if she can."

"We stayed here on the tail end of a trip as it's only 10 mins. from the Shannon airport. The rooms were very nice (we booked a triple with two bathrooms that was very handy) and Mary the hostess was extremely friendly and hospitable."

"This B&B is conveniently located to Shannon. We stayed there on our last night and Mary is very sweet. She gave us the large room so we would have ample space to pack on our last night. The rooms are very clean and the breakfast is very good. I would definitely recommend this for a first or last night stay."
