Having stayed here many times, I have never been disappointed. Martina is a wonderful host and John's food is to die for. I always look so forward to their breakfast! The location is a good centre from which to explore the Burren and county Clare. The rooms are very comfortable and always clean and beautifully presented. The decor is charming,...

Great location, close to the Cliffs of Moher. Owner and staff were most accommodating. Dinner was nicely served and most enjoyable, if a bit overpriced. Certainly hope to stay there again and will recommend to others.

I stayed there recently and what a beautiful haven. We were warmly welcomed to the hotel, by the hostess and she is such a good host! She let us know that we could eat there, handing us menus for the bar and the restaurant, we had a really beautiful meal in the hotel, the best steak we ever had! Our...

It is a good thing we were on a bicycling trip when we stayed here. Otherwise, a night or two of staying and eating here would be more than hazardous to the waistline. First of all the hotel public areas and rooms were very cozy. The sitting areas were cozy and not designed for large groups. Hotel rooms were spacious...

Sheedy's is a haven of peace and good food in the mad town that Lisdoonvarna becomes during the annual Matchmaker Festival. For those who don't know, this is a month long fest of almost non-stop dancing and drinking during which single men and women from all over Ireland search for a suitable spouse. On first acquaintance it is nothing remarkable...

I eat here during the Merriman Summer School which was held in the area. Service and food was very good and it was so comfortable to sit and have something to eat with a glass of Vino on a wet evening in August. I would recommend this restaurant.

I stayed in this hotel for a visit to the matchmaking festival. The festival turned out to be a bit of a bust but this hotel was an absolutely fantastic base to visit the surrounding area of the Burren, the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher. The host Martina was fantastic and knew the area very well. The room was...

I stayed here for one night during the busy festival month of September. I had a very spacious, clean & beautifully decorated room. The furniture is sympathetic to the country house style of the property and there was tea/coffee making facilities, hairdryer and free WiFi. The bathroom was very clean, there were plenty of fresh soft towels, shampoo shower gel...

The proprietor Martina has been an incredible host. We didn't have any accommodation and walked the Main Street of this little town and found Sheedy's on a quiet area with lovely grounds. We were greeted right away with a lovely welcome and shown a beautiful, comfortable and quite large room for a reasonable rate. After reading the dinner menu we...

This was a hotel with class. It was very clean and homely. The meal was Devine. Could not faulter it in any way. I would certainly be making another trip there soon I hope. The only minus was the entrance to the hotel it looked a bit unkempt but once you were inside you would soon forget about the entrance
