This is a difficult review to write as there were some very good things about this B&B, but also some areas for improvement. First the good - this is a huge home and the bed in our room was a true king which was much better than a double. Also, the proprietor, Gillian was very friendly and helpful, along with her staff who all provided recommendations for local sites worth seeing. They also have a restaurant and bar on site, which caters to locals and guests. It was nice to come back at night and be able to have a cocktail then walk up to our room. Now for the suggested improvements - the decor and facilities could use a refresh. The flooring, bathrooms and even some furniture have seen better days and are quite soiled, dirty and at times we wondered if they were sanitary. Simple things like exterior paint, new shower curtains, new bathroom caulk and new curtains (half of ours were ripped from the rod) would completely update the facility. Because this is a working restaurant there was also quite a bit of noise from it below until after midnight on the nights it was open. So you may be well served to request a room further in proximity from there to avoid noise. This is very close to Shannon airport, but the airplane noise was minimal and I can see how this would be an ideal location for someone wanting to stay close by the night before an early flight.…
A beautiful house in a breathtaking setting 10 minutes drive from Shannon airport with grand and elegant rooms, a wonderful warm Irish welcome and a generous, excellent breakfast. My flight was delayed and I arrived after checkin at gone midnight yet received the kindest of welcomes. I highly recommend this lovely hotel.
Many thanks to Gillian and her wonderful crew. We had an absolutely wonderful stay in Carrygerry House. From start to finish we were made feel so welcome. Our meals were superb and bedrooms delightful.
I had an overnight stay and arrived very late and was made to feel very welcome by the owner who could not have been more hospitable. Wonderful room, super clean and very comfortable. Slept v well, great bed/mattress and the silence was so welcome after a long journey as this hotel is in a lovely pastoral setting in the countryside of Clare. Lovely view of green rolling fields the next morning was so soothing. Very close to Shannon Airport so convenient for anyone flying in or out of there.
My family and small dog stayed recently in Carrygerry and I could not rate it highly enough. Excellent accommodation, great food and warm helpful staff. The house is situated in beautiful countryside and had lots of outdoor spaces for the kids (6 and 9) to explore - including shetland ponies for them to feed. We were made feel so welcome and so was our 4 legged friend. It was my mums birthday and the kitchen produced a beautiful cake for her to celebrate. Its only a short drive from Shannon Airport and Bunratty Castle is only 15 minutes away. I will definitely be back.
