Mary is such a gracious hostess. She took time to talk with us and recommend several places in the near area to see. Her breakfast was quite the spread and tasted amazing. The rooms were beautiful and made us feel right at home. Our flight left very early on the morning of our departure but Mary made a special effort...

Mary was a wonderful host, and this B&B is clean and comfortable. A great breakfast was served. She accepts B&B vouchers from Irish Tourism. Very convenient to Durty Nellie's, Bunratty Castle, and Shannon Airport. Highly recommended.

Upon arriving at the Galows View B & B in Bunratty, Ireland, we were warmly greeted by Mary, who took us to our upstairs room. Boy, were we impressed. We had a sliding door opening up to our own private patio. The landscaping was emmaculate, flowers and greenery as far as the eye could see. The location was superb, close...

Gallows View is a wonderful b&b: beautiful property, comfortable beds, extremely clean. Mary was very friendly and accommodating. We had a very early departure and she served a wonderful breakfast way earlier than the standard breakfast time.

If you are looking for a place close to Shannon Airport, you can't go wrong booking into Gallows View. Despite its name, this was a lovely and immaculately clean and comfortable B&B. Upon our arrival, Mary immediately produced a pot of tea and a tray of delicious home baked scones with butter and jam. My wife nearly scolded herself in...

After a red eye flight, we arrived in Shannon in need of a warm bed to sleep off the jet lag. Gallows view was just the place. We had a very hospitable host, who immediately greeted us even when we showed up quite early. Breakfast was great.

My husband and I stayed here with Mary 20 years ago and always remembered Mary and her wonderful B&B..Gallows View. Last year we began planning a family trip back to Ireland and were surprised to find Mary's B&B was still around. Mary was just as wonderful as she was the first time we met. The rooms are clean and beautiful....

For 15 years I have been blessed to breathe in all that is Ireland, but I am never really there unless I have my night at Gallows View. Whether it's on the day of arrival to maje me feel back at home, or for my final full Irish breakfast before I have to fly out of Shannon, Mrs Mary McKenna...

We chose this place because of it's proximity to Shannon Airport because we had an early flight out. It turned out to be a very nice B&B with a lovely and very welcoming hostess. The B&B was very well maintained and must be one of the cleanest in all of Ireland! The beds were large and very comfortable as were...
