And that doesn't give it justice. Wonderful place, clean, gorgeous decor, amazing breakfast, fantastic location, impeccable customer service and just the most welcoming people you have ever met. I loved the garden feel with the live plants in the entryway. It was close to everything! Good food and live music nearby. In the middle of everything but far enough away...

A perfect place to stay with a family. Great location. Wonderful breakfast. The owners were unbelievably helpful and kind. They gave us perfect advice and guidance on what to see and where to eat each day. Lots on insider tips that made our stay so memorable.

We stayed at Cappabhaile House during our tour of Ireland last september. The house is well located in the middle of the Burren and offer fantastic scenic views on the Irish nature. The room we had was spacious and cosy with two beds and a nice sitting area. You have the possibility to prepare tea or coffee and enjoy the...

From the moment we arrived at the Cappabhaile House we were in love - the house itself is so lovely and cozy and our hosts were incredibly kind and friendly. My husband and I had quite a lot on our itinerary during our stay in the Burren, but we were so glad to take a suggestion of the host and...

Very quiet location just outside Ballyvaughan on the Atlantic coast of Ireland, this B&B was very comfortable & clean with many indoor plants for decoration and ambience. The outside of the house needed a small amount of work in the tidiness department, but could be easily fixed. The rooms generally look out over farmland and green hills to add to...

I can't say enough about my 9 day stay at Cappabhaile House. Hospitality at its best and located just a mile outside the lovely seaside village of Ballyvaughan. Connor, along with his lovely wife and family, opened their door as well as friendship to this traveler. Wonderful breakfasts, assistance when you need it, good conversation and impromptu traditional music by...

We stayed at Cappabhaile House in October 2016. The house itself is really stunning. It is jam-packed with loads of curios and old trinkets. The room we stayed in was really spacious and had a stunning view of the Burren. The welcome from the owners was warm and genuine and they went out of their way to accomodate us and...

I stayed in Cappabhaile for 2 nights whilst in Ballyvaughan for my brother's wedding. I had a lovely stay and slept better over the 2 nights than I had in a long time. The bedroom was well presented, warm and more equipped with tea and biscuits than any other B&B I've been to over the past 10 years! It's obvious...

We hugely enjoyed our stay. Cappabhaile is superbly located. Look out the window and see the mountain and the sheep just outside. In the fascinating Burren country. Conor and Margaret are gracious, helpful, informative hosts. Rooms really nice, breakfasts outstanding. We were sorry to leave.

We attended the annual Lisdoonvarna festival and stayed in the wonderful Cappabhaile House, it was around 15 mins from lisdoonvarna itself. When we arrived we were greeted by the lady and we had been booked into a twin room, she took a look at the bookings and seeing it was two girls away for a girlie weekend quickly looked at...
