Great location. Good value for money . Comfortable . Quiet . Friendly . Just right !!! Our room was clean and comfortable. Because we arrived late in season the restaurant was not open in the evening. Having said that breakfast each day was very good , particularly if you selected the full Irish !

Carol and James couldn't have been nicer hosts. The food is gourmet quality - James is a master chef. The rooms are quiet and lovely. The location is perfect - an easy walk to the harbor in Doolin and only a few kilometers drive to the Cliffs of Mahor. Lots of other sites in the area. YOu can walk about... More

This is my second stay here and was wonderful again. The room and location is perfect walking distance to everything around! Carol was wonderful hostess to her guests. We had dinner at their restaurant and best meal we had in Ireland. If in Doolin stay here, highly recommended!

I spend two nights at Cullinan's Guesthouse on September 30 and October 1. It was fabulous! The accomodations were delightfully comfortable and the view from our room of the country side and river was charming. We saw a stunning sunset right from our room! Carol was the perfect host - visiting with us and the guests each morning during breakfast... More

Stopped in Doolin on our trip down the coast from Galway. Lovely Inn in a small town. Convenient to the Aran Island and Cliffs of Moher ferries. Being of a "certain age" we requested a ground floor room (no elevator) which was provided. Carol and James were gracious hosts and very helpful. The restaurant in the inn is superb. Nice... More

We stayed in lots of places in Ireland and Cullinan's was one of the best. The guesthouse is tastefully appointed, the bedrooms very comfortable. There are public rooms to sit and enjoy a fire or a book. The included breakfasts are superb, even by Irish standards. Plus a fabulous dinner meal, in a lovely dining room, is right where you...

Stayed here in Sept. of 2014. We loved the fact that it was a small town. The local tavern had great food and good music. The B&B was centrally located. The owners were very helpful and very sociable. The rooms were clean and charming. The breakfast was nicely done.

Others have described the attractions of the Doolin area, so I won't go into that here. But Cullinan's Guest House is a lovely spot to enjoy the area from.

This is a wonderful guest house where the husband and wife owners go out of their way to make your stay comfortable. Our room was a lovely first floor accommodation with 2 double beds, bathroom with large corner soaking bathtub, and sliding glass doors leading to a brick patio. Everything was spotlessly clean! The food here is the real highlight.... More
