County Clare's Newest 4 Star Hotel. New Sophistication and luxurious style are the hallmarks of the renowned Bunratty Castle Hotel, which is part of the Blarney Group. The Hotel has been restored to its rightful position as one of the most intimate and charming hotels in the west of Ireland. It embodies the highest of traditional values, with a diverse range of luxury accommodation, glorious dining and an Authetic Thai Angsana spa of exquisite indulgence. Nestled in the heart of the historic countryside of Bunratty and within easy access to Shannon Airport, the Hotel is but a short stroll away from the famous 15th century Bunratty Castle & Folk Park.

The castle is fantastic to wander around in, totally restored & the grounds are lovely. We really enjoyed the Tea House with homemade scones & jam. Was a great way to spend a drizzly morning. Very close to Shannon Airport.

Good question. Their spa set up requires bookings etc, so it would be an additional price. I thought the pool was freely available, but we didn't use it. May be best to check with the hotel to get the right info.
