Bunratty Castle

Bunratty
Co. Clare





Introduction
If location is everything, then the newly expanded and rejuvenated Bunratty Castle Hotel has a running start. Nestled in the heart of the much-visited village of Bunratty just five miles from Shannon Airport, this hotel sits on a hillside beside the River Ratty across the street from the famous 15th century Bunratty Castle & Folk Park and the adjacent landmark pub known as Durty Nellys.

It is also within easy walking distance of all of Bunratty's other attractions, shops, and facilities.


Accommodation
The hotel itself is not a castle and does not pretend to be, in spite of its name. It is a sprawling traditional-style two- and three-story building with a sunny yellow fašade and every up-to-date convenience. There are 80 air-conditioned guest rooms, with a full slate of modern comforts and amenities.


Facilities
The public areas, partly derived from an 18th century Georgian manor house, have high ceilings, dark wood furnishings, antiques, and open fireplaces.

The focal point is Kathleen's Irish Pub, a multi-room restaurant and bar that presents "Irish Nights" with music and dancing galore including audience participation.
