Bunratty Castle Mews Guesthouse

Apartment - Private room · Low Rd, County Clare, Ireland

The Space

Surrounded by beautiful history and nature, our house is Bunratty’s traditional and themed Irish Bed and Breakfast. Just opposite Bunratty Castle and five minutes from the historic and picturesque village of Bunratty with its sights, shopping, bars and restaurants, including the world famous Durty Nelly’s and Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. We've a great location and you can actually see Bunratty Castle itself from the front foor and bedroom windows.

We offer deluxe accommodation, home cooking, a great range of attractions and activities and the benefit of our local knowledge whether your trip be for business or pleasure. Our total capacity is 24-30 people.

We pride ourselves on our personal touch. We are definitively not a hotel, we are a family oriented B&B that work hard to make sure you have an amazing stay with.

Our breakfasts are included in the price and we offer the full continental spread, including tea, coffee, homemade scones, bread and irish soda bread, cheeses, meats, cereals, jams, etc. We are also more than happy to supply a full cooked Irish breakfast for a small extra charge, which is payable locally.

We also do evening meals that guests are more than welcome to join in on and we love nothing more than sitting around with our guests and having a good blether.

We also like to offer our guests a free cup of tea and some scones and jam when they arrive as we want you to know how welcome you are in our home.

At the Bunratty Castle Mews no request is too big and we will work hard to meet any special requirements you may have. We have staged family reunions and special events, we have dressed rooms for Valentine's day in the past for example, with flowers and petals.

We have also organised traditional Irish marriage blessings in the local church for those looking for a fun and meaningful way to engage in the local culture. We have even staged a celtic wedding.

We're always open to new experiences and new ideas. If you have something interesting that you want to use our bed and breakfast for then please just message me and we'll see what we can work out!

We sometimes have evening entertainments in the house itself, including a traditional story teller (shanakey). There are also really warm, authentic local pubs as this is not just a tourist area. At Durty Nelly's, our local pub, you will meet real locals (often whether you want to talk to them or not!)

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • Dolores was very welcoming, charitable, and great with my kids. The location was easy to find and convenient for many excursions both North and South of Shannon.
    The down side would be that while our room was a great size, the bathroom was tight. That being said, it was easy to overlook minor imperfections because the rates are reasonable and she was a lovely host.

  • We loved our stay at Delores' place and would stay again if we were visiting the area! Delores and family make you feel right at home. We traveled here with four adults and five kids and Delores had the perfect set up for us. She greeted us with tea and cookies and every step of the way she was helpful! She gave us shopping tips, tourist tips, dining tips….you name it, she was helpful with it! The kids loved it here and we loved it here! Delores goes out of her way to make sure that everyone is comfortable and feels welcome! The B&B is close to Bunratty Castle and Durty Nelly's, and you can make short day trips to several other attractions. The breakfasts are amazing! Delores has so many choices out in the morning and she cooks a fabulous spread for a large group. We highly recommend staying here when visiting the area!

  • We had a nice stay with a very attentive host. Our only downside was that we couldn't seem to get very hot water out of the shower. This may have been because we traveled off-season. It's a short drive into town, and the surrounding area is nice.

    March 2014
  • Everything was perfect. We had a wonderful time and would recommend it to all.

    December 2013
  • What a wonderful place! I was absolutely smitten with Bunratty Castle Mews Guesthouse and hope to go back some day! Dolores was delightful and so accommodating. She was flexible and understanding about our flight schedule and we were so grateful to have such a charming, peaceful place to rest our heads. I absolutely recommend it!

  • We had a great trip to Ireland made ten times better by Delores. She is an amazing person and an incredible ball of energy. Delores went above and beyond to make sure our stay at her guesthouse and our overall experience in Ireland was one to remember. She would greet us each morning with a smile and an awesome breakfast. Then she would help us plan our days with helpful suggestions and hidden treasures to discover. The price was right, the accommodations good and the host simply amazing !!

  • Very lovely lady. So energetic and helpful for finding the best places to visit. Made a full Irish breakfast every morning. Made calls for us to visit places if needed. Easy to get to, close to a lot of great views and not to far from the Blarney Castle.

    September 2013
  • Five of us were here for a night and had a wonderful experience. Dolores was so accommodating and helpful with our plans to explore the west coast of Ireland. The rooms were comfortable, breakfast was hearty and delicious. Cannot recommend a B&B more highly.

    September 2013
  • Very much enjoyed Guesthouse! Dolores is very friendly and the breakfast is tasty. We were able to walk from the guesthouse to Durty Nelly's (a fantastic star-filled walk in the night).

    September 2013
  • Waited a couple weeks for a reply but Host was very accommodating. However, there is no breakfast included. You can either pay more for continental or even more for a hot breakfast. I didn't partake as I'm vegan and so I didn't have a lot of options.

I own and run a local B&B just opposite the lovely Bunratty Castle. I have a family of 4 boys and we all love to welcome visitors to Ireland. I know the area like the back of my hand and am happy to recommend all the finest and most interesting things in the area. We love nothing more than welcoming interesting people from around the world and getting to know them over a cup of tea and scone. We hope that you will come and visit us soon!
