We can’t say enough about this wonderful B & B. It was the nicest one we experienced during our recent vacation. Beautiful location; the rooms are very nice and the food was excellent. What makes this the best though is Trish. She is warm and friendly and goes above and beyond to help with suggestions, reservations for tours, and even a ride if needed. This should be a 4 star B & B!!!

This was my second year staying at Briar Lodge. Absolutely love Trish, she is a wonderful hostess. Very helpful, the Inn it's always clean, breakfast is delicious and very quiet. On a funny note, while we were there, another couple had also stayed there, they mentioned that it was there only Inn that they had stayed at that, had face cloths. Now Briar Lodge was the first Inn out 4 paces we stayed at. Out of the 4 Briar Lodge was the only one that had face cloths. Kinda funny! Anyway, anytime that we plan on going back to Ireland we will definitely be staying at Briar Lodge.

Lovely in every way! Our room was spacious; the beds were comfortable; and everything we needed was there. Trish was a marvelous host! She was very helpful with suggestions and answered all of our questions. The food was excellent and the gardens, even late in the season, were gorgeous. The proximity to the airport was a real plus for us at the end of our time in Ireland. We loved our stay at Briar Lodge!

We were only here one night, staying before our departure out of Shannon Airport. Trish was a delight, providing comfortable, quiet, and very clean accommodations and provided a wealth of practical, appreciated information. (I had touched base with her by phone RE: our arrival time, and whether we should go see Bunratty Castle first, or check-in first. I had just been in touch with the Castle via instant message for "last arrival" times. Trish mentioned other times - and SHE was right.) She was very knowledgeable on suggested arrival times at the airport (again, spot-on) and provided a wonderful breakfast in an adorable breakfast room (asking us what we would like the night before, and suggesting a filling breakfast because it would be awhile before we got a meal on our flight.) The house was VERY clean, updated, and in a quiet neighborhood. We were a party of four, 2 adults and 2 young adults, so we had two rooms. Beds were comfy with plenty of space and storage if you needed it. Private, modern bathrooms in the room. Ample parking. Small living-room to hang out and/or watch TV if you wanted. There were others staying longer, and we wished we could have joined them! I would stay again, and I will be suggesting it to my clients.

Absolutely beautiful home and large bedroom. Not sure why this isn’t listed as a 4 Star as it was so nice. Host was great, food excellent and we felt right at home and had our best sleep here of all our B&B stays.
