My niece and I spent one night at Avarest on our road trip through Southern Ireland and we loved it! The room, the location, the breakfast--all perfect. We even had a first class check in from Deirdre's son, Edward! Thanks so much -- we really enjoyed your home.

This was a wonderful stay close to many different attractions and castles with many nearby restaurants. It's a quiet property hidden away from the freeway, and we slept very soundly here. The breakfast was also very good.

This is the perfect place to stop if you're flying into Shannon! If you have an early morning arrival, then you should rally and spend the day in Bunratty doing the castle, shops, and cafes, then check into the Avarest Bunratty. Deirdre is fantastic - so friendly and welcoming and her house is adorable and there's even a pet donkey...

Nothing to complain about as the room was clean, adequate, spacious with comfortable beds. Beware that there are no cups in the room. Free coffee and drinks in the lounge only. One may surmise why. Breakfast is very good.

We started our Irish vacation at Avarest and it was the perfect choice. Deirdre is a wonderful host and she went out of her way to make us feel welcome and help us settle in. She gave us great advise to get us started on our Ireland Adventure. This B&B is very convenient to Shannon Airport which was our arrival...

The Avarest is not a four star accommodation. It was pleasant, clean and the owner is very nice. That being said the room we had was large, (we were put in the family room) but only one of the four beds was comfortable. Bathroom is very small, Internet only worked in the downstairs parlor not throughout as advertised. For the...

As the owner of Avarest I appreciate each review. I would like to express my disappointment with this unfair review of our home. Firstly these 2 ladies only checked out this morning and this review was posted yesterday so I am unsure how the sleep quality can be a true reflection. Two very different women, one who told me she...

Accomodation is superb, delicious breakfast and hosts are wonderful. Close to Bunratty castle and a short drive to Ennis and Limerick. A nice drive the Cliffs of Moher, Doolin and surroundings. Will recommend this B&B anytime.

We have stayed at this B&B a number of times over the years and I highly recommend it. Deirdre and her family are very welcoming and her accommodations are pristine. They are located very near the airport and it is easy to find. I usually stay the first day I arrive and the night before I leave. The breakfast is...

We were in town for a family wedding on our first trip to Irerland. Deirdra and Freddy made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. The suite with en-suite washroom was perfect for 3 adults, beds were comfortable and was very quiet. Breakfast was a highlight with many delicious options. Would highly recommend Avarest when in Bunratty.
