We stopped here on the way home from visiting santa at the aillawee caves. The food was very nice. The service was friendly. It was reasonable. And the lady who checked on us offered us more, a thing that was common practice. It was a lovely country touch

I usually like to stay in small B&Bs, if I am only staying for a few days, but the Staff at this Hotel makes you feel special and as a member of the family. The Staff in the lunch and dinner dining room< James and Thomas, knew my name and acknowledged me every time I walked by. Christina, behind the... More

Stayed one night recently with the good lady. Staff helpful and room clean but quite small. We like walking in the Burren and if we had to bring any wet gear into bedroom and bathroom, we would have had a challenge. We were in a front bedroom and unfortunately the walls through to next bedroom were like paper, and could... More

We were on day 6 and 7 of our self-drive tour and the tour company booked this hotel. We found it charming, the beds were unique to us and very comfortable. The staff were helpful. The room was clean and afforded us a good nights rest both evenings. It was convenient to the sights we wanted to see. We found... More

Stayed here while touring the Burren. The hotel is quaint and centrally located in the Ballyvaughan Square. My room had a nice view of part of the Burren and was small but cozy. Not noisy except for the street traffic below, which died down in late evening. The hotel also has a private parking lot in the back. I had... More

The tour guide brought us here and raved about the food, my husband hand the hake and was very disappointed in it. He had an upset stomach later and wasn't sure if that was the cause. I had an open Crab sandwich which was very dry and pretty tasteless. The Americans with us had Seafood Chowder and said it was... More

This hotel is really a big B&B. THey must not get a lot of business because the staff running the hotel are the maids, receptionists, waitresses, and breakfast hosts. The food in their pub was great, although the service was slow. Someone cleaned the floors (tiles) in the morning and I almost broke my leg when I slipped on them... More

Really enjoyable stay. This small hotel was very comfortable and the friendly staff made our stay very enjoyable. Our room was clean and had everything we needed. The breakfast was delicious and unlike so many hotels, there was no buffet, all cooked freshly exactly to your order! We plan to visit again!

Stayed there 4 nights with kid for a trip to the burren region. While the hotel is ideally located to explore the burren area several things could be improved in the hotel. On our first entry to the hotel we recognized the food smell from the restaurant which was present throughout the hotel. Entering our fresh room we found the... More
