Doonmore1, Manager at Doonmore Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Fergus G Thank you for your review but I'm afraid that, apart from being difficult to understand, it is misleading. I am not sure if you have the right island at all. This is one of 3 hotels on the island, not the only one, the other two being The Dolphin and Inishbofin House. You can get a drink...

We travelled to the Island to Celebrate a friends 50th Birthday. Andrew and team did a great job of taking care of us. Some of the best session music I have ever heard in the bar each night and a celebratory dinner for 25 on the 2nd night in the dining room. Apart from the clean ensuite room with a...

I stayed at the Doonmore at the beginning of May and it did not disappoint. The rooms are basic, quiet and very clean with en suite facilities. The food was sublime, absolutely delicious. The Doonmore Team were just the right balance of friendly and professional (funny and talented)! And nothing was too much trouble. The location was perfect for breathtaking...

If you want an isolated getaway with warm and friendly staff this is the place to book. Wonderful craggy walks, many small secluded beaches, tasty meals, and comfortable beds to slip into at the end of the night.

Dear Beanmimo, Thank you for your lovely review. It is a beautiful island and has all that is great about the Wild Atlantic Way at the heart of it.

Dear ross_finn, Thank you for your lovely review. It was great to have you back and this time bringing your dad for the Arts Festival weekend. It's hard to beat the Westquarter loop walk for beautiful rugged scenery. I hope your dad enjoyed it as much as I know you do and that he comes back again too. Thanks again...

Very cosy straight forward family led hotel. No upsmuck and excellent (french) chef. Bar is cosy and with live traditional music on Friday and Saturday night. Unfortunately no social dancing anywhere on the Island

Dear Thomas K, Thank you for reviewing our hotel. I have googled 'No upsmuck' to no avail so I'm not sure what it means, I only hope it's slang for something good! Strangely enough, there was social dancing just last weekend, although you're much more likely to hear a trad/folk session in the bar. Thank you again for your review....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Murrays' Doonmore Hotel, the most westerly island hotel in Ireland, was built in 1969 and has been owned and managed by the Murray family ever since. We pride ourselves on our hands on approach to customer service so you will be dealing with a member of the family at most stages of your stay. We care about what we do because it is not just a job, it is our life. Our friendly staff are superbly trained and they know that our raison d'etre is to ensure that every customer, from a child ordering a hot chocolate to a group of adults staying for a week, deserves only the best service possible. Our hotel and bar food is famous for its freshly caught seafood and its consistently high quality and value for money. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and warm. The atmosphere is welcoming, homely and relaxed. It is no accident that we have a large percentage of repeat business stretching back to the early days. The proof of the pudding is in the eating (and we bake all our own!) So come out and visit and experience Murrays' Doonmore Hotel for yourselves. Andrew Murray ... more   less
