Upon our arrival we were greeted with the sweetest Irish Welcome from a beautiful young lass named Claire. She immediately confirmed that our choice of visiting this location in Ireland was to be a Grand one. She was absolutely correct. Close to the Cliffs of Moher and a 500,000 year old stalactite we were inspired and educated. It has been...

Picked this hotel at random on the internet. Was doing Tour de Burren cycling event and needed somewhere to stay. What an inspired choice. This small family run hotel is a fantastic base for any stay in Lisdoonvarna area. Owners and staff are very friendly and pay great attention to the needs of customers. Our twin ensuite room was large...

The staff are outstanding. The location is excellent and best of all they like dogs. the room was a good size, we had a 48 inch dog crate in the room with lots of space to move around. The value for money was great.

Breakfast and the staff were excellent. The location is good, in the middle of town, the room was perfect and we were made to feel very welcome throughout. The food was lovely as was the selection and quality of beers. Will certainly return.

The restaurant had live music til 12 am and you could hear it in your room. Our room was right by the street and you could hear people talking all night. The curtains did not keep the sun out, which don't think the sun ever set while we were there. However, the breakfast was really good and the coffee was...

We had dinner here which were hot sandwiches because we wanted something light. They were very good. We came back for Irish music later and enjoyed the band. The sandwiches were very reasonable and the drinks were on par for Ireland ( a bit expensive, 7 euro for G&T).

Stayed here early April 2016. Room was quiet, clean, adequate but not ostentatious. Very helpful & pleasant staff. Excellent breakfast. At that time of the season the hotel was not serving dinner but I understand dinner is served later in the season. Parking is available in the town square close to the hotel.

Hotel in good location in main street. Very clean. No lifts. Very hard bed, only discovered that discomfort after short disturbed sleep-- phoned Reception but no answer. When I complained politely at check out the owner John rudely commented everyone wants firm beds and strolled rudely off. Luckily for Lisdoonvarna they are very busy with good tourist trade, and fortunately...

Having eaten in this hotel for quite a few years I have always been impressed with the food, the Irish stew, Bacon & cabbage Cod & chips, Beefburger & chips, In fact everything on the menu has always been delicious, even the jam for the scones is home made. The prices, especially if you are from the UK are very...

I have visited this hotel a few times for a drink. The doors were kept open and the draught was terrible. Music is very good and the dancing. As for Lynn, what can I say. A face that would sour milk, I dont think Ive seen her cracking a smile yet. The poor staff must be scared stiff as all...

We have a responsible Drinking Policy If customers are behaving in appropriately then unfortunately this is not tolerated. We have wonderful staff which have great time for both Lynn and John. Thank you, Josie
