The charm of this hotel was evident in its unique balance of antiquity and modern essence. This was an ideal place to spend the evenings after full days of enjoying the beauty and splendor of our first visit to Ireland. The daily breakfast buffet was plentiful, and a good blend of Irish and universal fare. The proximity to a historic castle and quality shopping was a bonus! We would definitely recommend this hotel.

Great Spot!

Pros: Nice older building.
Location: It is directly across from the Castle and Dirty Nelly's Restaurant - an excellent Irish experience. And it's about 10 minutes from the airport.
The staff is excellent, the facility is very nice.

Hotel amenities poor.

Pros: Location
Cons: More lifts in the hotel.
Location: Bunratty castle and woolen outlet.
This location was an excellent location if you are leaving out if the Shannon airport and want to tour Bunratty. However there is nothing else to do around there. There is only two restaurants and little shopping. However that is what we wanted to do since we were departing from Shannon airport the next morning. We arrived around 2pm and toured the castle and did the dinner at the castle. The hotel was clean but there is only one lift for the whole hotel. This is bad because we had to go through two fire doors to get to our room at the very end of the hall. It was also bad because the lift is in the main reception room where there was a wedding reception taking place and we felt like we were intruding going through there to get the lift. In addition there was a tour group also coming in and leaving at the same time we were and the lift was always occupied. They really need to put another lift in the hotel. The Wifi also was extremely hard to navigate to get on. Most hotels just give you a password and you connect to it but this hotel required you to go to some site an enter a four word password. We never did get on. You also have to put your key card in to turn on the electricity when you get to your room. This is fine but the mechanism that controlled this function made a loud noise all the time. It made it very difficult to go to sleep. This hotel is fine but I stayed in better bed and breakfasts in Ireland at a much cheaper price.
