    The home and garden were spectacular. The owners were helpful and charming, offered great recommendations for our stay and went out of their way to provide us with a great experience. The breakfast was our first Irish meal and was delicious.

Company info

After working in Shannon Development for several years, I started Dunaree Bed and Breakfast in Bunratty village in 1998. Since then I have seen many changes in the business and in our village, which gladly is now recovering after a number of years in decline. I have a keen interest in nature, travel gardening and in making sure all our guests have an memorable stay in Dunaree.

Property info

Dunaree was built in 1998 in an Irish country lodge style and faces east with great views of the Cratloe Hills. To the rear of the house lie the Bunratty Woods with many fine ancient oaks still remaining, from the original castle estate. The house is surrounded by a number of garden areas with a range of interesting plants and themes with secluded corners to sit and relax.

Neighborhood info

Located at the mouth of the Ratty river from which it takes its name, Bunratty village is one of the most historic places in Ireland. A historic defensive site since it was first settled by the Vikings it has been attacked an defended for over a 1000 years. Today it is renowned for its hospitality and boasts a range of fine pubs, restaurants, interesting places to stay and attractions such as Bunratty Castle and Folk Park. It is also just a short drive from Shannon Airport with coach connections to Dublin Airport also..
