Trish is one of the nicest people I have ever met! This was my very first lodging upon arriving in Ireland, and I was overjoyed! She was so welcoming, and warm. I didn't want to leave to head into the city when that time came. The food was great, the room was wonderful, and her company and advice on places to eat, things to do in the area, etc., was well appreciated, and taken. I will be staying here the next time I am in Ireland; and there WILL be a next time. :)

Trish was wonderful! We originally booked a small room and she moved us to a larger one without us even asking. It had 3 beds instead of 1 and a beautiful bathroom. The rooms are bright, clean, and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious.

"The Briar Lodge " Bunratty Ireland is a great example of why you need to get out of Dublin, take a break from hotels and chain lodging, and see Ireland and what a B&B has to offer. We did just this on our trip to Ireland and found a gem in the "The Briar Lodge and help from B&B Ireland”. Guests will enjoy the location just minutes from Bunratty Castle and Folk Park and to Shannon Airport, Ennis and Limerick .It’s all just a short drive from "The Briar Lodge “with it's location and it's Hospitality. It is what you picture when dreaming of a true Irish B&B with it's beautiful landscaped yards and the well- kept home. Along with its great accommodations and public areas, this is one of our favorites. Owner Trish Cronin has done a fabulous job with this home/b&b and you will be hard pressed to find a better hostess. As for the accommodations, you could not ask for more beautiful and comfortable rooms than "The Briar Lodge" offers. We had the pleasure of staying in, what we called, the blue room. It was a very nicely decorated and extremely spacious room with Queen bed, with fabulous soft bedding. The room has a private bathroom with shower . The room has no T.V offerings it does have WiFi. Be sure to take advantage of breakfast. Let me tell you Trish sure sets a great table. We had a traditional Irish breakfast was very good. Last, what we think is the best of the best of "The Briar Lodge" is it's location and comfort along with the hospitality of it's host Trish. So, get out of Dublin, rent a car, see Ireland and visit "The Briar Lodge" Bunratty Ireland Jason & Angela Price Editor & Publisher / Music & Travel Nation 6030 BROWN LANE OZARK,ARKANSAS 72949 479-209-1655 http://www.angelfire.com/musicntravelnation/
