Staying at the Orchid House was a beautiful and quaint experience. We woke up to a magnificent view of a beautiful Irish field of sheep and the ocean. The residence was spotless and in addition the service was literally the best I have ever encountered. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone traveling to Ireland.

This was our first BnB experience in Ireland. Pat and Gil were the kindest hosts. Their lovely home was the perfect location for our evening stay. We checked-in and drove a quick 20 minutes to the Cliffs of Moher, where we stayed for a few hours and enjoyed a beautiful sunset, made our way back to Doolin for supper and... More

We stayed for one night and my only disappointment is we couldn't stay longer! Gill and Pat were incredibly warm and welcoming hosts, running a wonderful B&B in a perfectly serene location. Fanore is just stunning. We'd spent the day driving from the south up via the Cliffs of Moher, and had been recommended Fanore as a nice place to... More

Somehow was double-booked at Donour, and owner was gracious enough to guide us to Orchid at the late past-ten o'clock hour. Was welcomed graciously to a large room with twin and double. Very clean with private bath, television, warm shower. Garden view and directly across from the water near Burren. Served a lovely breakfast with potato pancakes. We were directed... More

The view from the bed room on the ocean is wonderful, the house and yard are very clean, well maintained and beautifully decorated, the breakfast is prepared with love and leaves nothing to be desired, but the highlight of this B&B are definitively the hosts, Gill and Pat. The two warmest people you can imagine, you can´t help falling in... More

Stayed in Orchid House after the Tour de Burren cycle at the end of June, hosts were really friendly and helpful. One of our friends was stuck for a shower after the race and the owners kindly obliged. Very welcoming, lovely quiet and peaceful guesthouse.

The Orchid House is most definitely the best B&B we ever had the pleasure to stay in. Jill and Pat are the nicest hosts one can wish for. The location coul'd not better - very quiet but just about 10 minutes walk from the local Pub and Shop The house is spotlessly clean with nice and cozy rooms overlooking the... More

Fantastic stay at the Orchid House. The location was peaceful and close enough to all the attractions at Burren. We are traveling with our 15 month baby. We had the family room with an extra single bed still have plenty of space for our travel cot. The ensuite bath are on the bigger side of other B&B we stayed at... More

Orchid House is situated in lovely Fanore, a relatively close drive to the Cliffs without the bustle of Doolin. We had a beautiful view of the ocean from our window. Gill and Pat are delightful and welcoming. Gill could not do enough for us, rebooking a Cliffs Cruise we had missed, giving us great restaurant recommendations, and she and Pat... More

The country side and scenic views around Orchid House were utterly majestic. There is so much to do for those who like to explore nature and the countryside. Fanore is a charming little town with colorful citizens who never hesitate to share a delightful story or strike up a conversation, treating you as if you were a long lost friend.... More
