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

The Orchid House B&B is one of our favorites. The town of Fanore is quaint and beautiful, and is a great base to visit the Cliffs of Moher, the Buren, Aran Island and even Galway which is about an hour+ away. Pat & Gill are warm and welcoming hosts. The house and rooms are spotless, bed is comfortable, and breakfast... More

Gill and Pat are as welcoming and well informed as any traveler could wish. They made us feel like family guests and steered us to the best walks, sights and activities, and the lovely restaurant and pub just down the road. The location is perfect, with ocean views and the unique Burren flowing down to the sea. Fanore was charming,... More

The Orchid House is a charming B&B located perfectly for seeing the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. A day trip to Galway is a cinch, too. Pat and Gill are kind and Gill makes a terrific breakfast. Their menu was the most extensive of all the places we stayed, and the most hearty. Highly recommend. If a return trip... More

We had a great two night stay in Fanore at the Orchid house. If you are interested in seeing the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren, this is the place to stay. Fanore is a great quiet place to stay, located right in classic Burren landscapes and is only a short drive from the cliffs. A great surprise was how... More

This was our fourth trip to Ireland, my parents and I, and this is one of the most wonderful places we've ever been. Everything was perfect. There were about four sights we had planned to go see and we winded up very happily staying at the first one all day. Gill was so kind and fun, he knows so much... More

My daughter and I were traveling together recently and decided to include Orchid House on our places to stay after a very memorable two night stay we had as a family this past summer here. Pat & Gill are wonderful and welcomed us again recently back into their lovely home. The Burren is a very special place, maybe not for... More

My sister and I stayed here for a weekend of rest, relaxation and fresh outdoor activity. We weren't disappointed. Gill and Pat were extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home from the moment we arrived. Nothing was too much trouble - from giving us advice to restaurants, to activities & then even advice on routes to take on... More
