30 of us travelled down to stay in kinvara. Beautiful little town and hotel. So convenient for our hike in the Burren and lively pubs for nighttime. We all ate in the bar that evening and standard of food was high. Only complaint was lack of hot water in the showers which may have been down to us all checking...

Just stayed at the Merriman, excellent Hotel, very central to walk all round the Bay and the Main Street. We have been all over Ireland, I can honestly say this is the best breakfast ever, even better the 5star cruises we have been on. So much choice, and the chef came out to ask if he could cook something else....

Stayed here on a voucher deal & was made feel very welcome which isn't always the case! Our room was spacious, beds were really comfy, bathroom had a bath & power shower overhead. The place was clean & staff were friendly. We enjoyed it. WiFi not great in bedrooms. Breakfast was OK.

This was an excellent location to start or end your adventure around "The Burren" The hotel is just behind the sea view so pleasant walk, along the waters edge.

This was a hotel booked as part of a bicycle tour. When we arrived there were many people in the pub very involved in a hurling match on the TV. We could hear them after we got to our room. It was pretty funny actually. They cleared out and it got pretty quiet. The room was clean, the bed was...

Stayed here last night with my 4 kids. Really impressed. The manager Dermot was really friendly and helpful. The food was top class. Nice vibe and atmosphere. Recently reopened under new management and the enthusiasm of the new owners is great and very obvious. Definitely going to be back. Fantastic location. Very scenic pretty town.

Stayed here in July 2015 - room was small but serviceable. Bar was nice. Ask for a room not facing the main street. Room was hot so had to leave windows open and trucks kept us up all night. Breakfast was typical and fine. Would stay here again but only in a rear facing room
