Beautiful hotel in a centre of Inishbofin with amazing views. Staff was very friendly, professional and helpful with everything, dinner was delicious, and very good choice for breakfast. Big, clean room with terrace makes our stay very comfortable. Highly recommended!

Didn't stay in the hotel, just went there for dinner one evening while on the island. Good food, well presented, and a varied menu. Very relaxed environment with helpful and pleasant staff.

Just dined here rather than stayed - décor is fairly basic but comfortable enough. Food was delicious. I had the smoked seafood chowder - which was packed with fish and flavour (and no potato, which I dislike in a soup) Loved every morsel of it...More

we stayed in the Dolphin hotel and found it very comfortable. The food was very good and the staff very friendly. The owner was on hand to ask any questions you wanted to know about the island.
