This hotel is an ideal location for sightseeing around the Burren. The room provided was basic but adequate. We were disappointed there was no view out the window just rooftops. Pulled back the curtains one morning to be greeted by a gentleman painting a chimney (bit of a shock!) Breakfast was hit and miss. On our final morning we waited... More

No other info about the services. For the check out same things: no one at the desk. For one night stay could be fine, not... More

We stayed in Hylands which is in a great location in the heart of the village and we were allocated a lovely room on the top floor. Breakfast was very basic and not worth getting up for so improvement... More

We had booked, with confirmation, Logues Lodges. There was, however, a problem with their system which resulted in 'no room at the inn'! Fortunately we managed to get into the Hylands. Although the room was small, they literally squeezed us in.....the bed was so comfy. The breakfast's had the best porridge of the trip and we were made to feel... More

Stopped for a quick lunch while touring the Cliffs of Moher and the seaside around them. Had the mussels and they were delicious. The vegetable soup was also top notch and the bread was excellent. Prices were reasonable although the service was a little slow.

My wife and I stayed in the Hotel for four nights in mid-July. The first noticeable thing on entering through the front door, was a peculiar odour, which was not very pleasing. The receptionist was quite young, pleasant and helpful. Our room, on the middle floor, was spacious and clean with free wifi. We stayed on a bed & breakfast... More

During our sightseeing bus tour we stopped at this hotel for some lunch. I can only say that the beef and barley stew as well as the goats cheese salad are out of this world.
