We had a fantastic "mini break" in the Rathbaun Hotel Lisdoonvarna last week. We were warmly greeted on arrival by the owner "John" who went to great lengths' to explain the local amenities' and facilities to us. We were allowed have our dog stay with us. During our 3 days' there, we were treated to what can only be described...

Did we ever enjoy our stay here. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Our room was actually quite large and was clean. We had a late supper at the bar/restaurant downstairs and ended up so happy with that decision. Best fish and chips on our whole trip and authentic Irish music.

Stayed here for a night, rooms are clean and quite big for the size of the place. We ate in the restaurant downstairs, the live music was fantastic, and they served THE best fish & chips I've ever had. Also the owners are super friendly and very helpful if you need anything. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights this summer with my children. I was completely appalled at the treatment of the staff there. More than once I witnessed one of the owners-usually the man, yelling at a girl or boy for not doing something as quick as they wanted, or for forgetting something basic, even when a mistake so...

We went for the live music and were not disappointed. A three piece played a variety of authentic music with some fun banter in between. It was not a large audience but those there were certainly very appreciative. We had a meal whilst we were there and it was both very reasonably priced AND delicious. The staff are very friendly...

My husband and I were do glad to have stayed at the Rathbaun Hotel. The owners were gracious, the food excellent, the prices reasonable, the location easy to find, and the music was the best we had heard anywhere during our trip to Ireland. We appreciated that the music began at the early hour of 8:00pm and lasted straight until...

I stayed here as a solo traveler for 4 nights total. The hotel, food, staff, and entertainment were all wonderful during my stay. After a bit of a hiccup with checking in (no one had checked out yet), I had a great stay. Ample, free parking is available across the street and down the road a tad. Location: Lisdoonvarna, though...

When we are in Lisoonvarna or in the Co. Clare we need to go in the evening to this place, because the food and the music are amazing! We liked have a beer with hour food listening the music. Very clean and good staff.

We stayed at this B&B for 1 night and wish we would have stayed for 2. The rooms were a good size, and very clean. They were a little outdated, but everything was spotless. It is located on the main road of town near shops, restaurants and pubs. They have traditional music every night that was very good.
