Noel's Restaurant's A Bunratty Winner

Noel's Restaurant's A Bunratty Winner
Excellent Hotel Dining Room
On a recent visit, our first ever, to Bunratty Castle and Folk Park, we were wondering where to stay. The Bunratty Manor was recommended to us. It has just twenty rooms and is popular for weddings, so you'll need to book well in advance.

We did. And it worked out well for us. Not just because it is within walking distance of the castle and park. It is also just about a minute off the M18 and so extra convenient for drivers from Cork. The famed Durty Nellies Bar is also a couple of hundred yards away as are a few restaurants in Bunratty village itself.

But we had no need of outside sustenance. Someone recommended Noel's in the Bunratty Manor itself as a place to watch. We booked it and had the most enjoyable dinner. Quite reasonable too as you can get three courses for €35.00, though there are a few supplements for some main courses and specials. The pictures give you an idea of what to expect but I should mention that the crew are very friendly and quite efficient as well. And the hotel itself is fine too for an overnight and breakfast.
