decided to stop for a quick snack at this hotel, we ordered a toasted sandwich which cost €5 each, honestly it was a joke, it contained plastic cheese and ham and was served in a ordinary slice pan so by the time it was toasted it was completely flat on the plate. The tea was nice but had a big... More

We had a quick one-night stay at the Royal Spa Hotel and it was the perfect place to experience the best that Ireland has to offer. The breakfast was delicious, especially the Baileys Porridge, and the staff were friendly and approachable. We had a wonderful time.

Location is great for taking the ferry to the Aran Islands from Doolin. The staff was very helpful. We checked in past 9 pm and the same staff who served us a late dinner at 9:45pm also served us the next morning at 8:30 am! They accommodated our needs and called the ferry companies to make a booking to the... More

Having been in briefly and left the ritz, mistaken identity there, will leave it at that. Walked up the street looking for somewhere to eat quite early 4pm, stumbled upon the cafe at the royal spa. How glad I found this great wee spot. Everything was great from we walked in the door. The coffee was spot on, I love... More

This is a lovely little hotel in a fantastic location - Lisdoonvarna is a great place to stay if you want to see the surrounding Burren, the seaside, go surfing, visit the Aran islands, Cliffs of Moher etc. Highly recommended as a location for touring around Clare. There is no spa at the hotel - I believe the name refers... More

As the restaurant in the Imperial Hotel across the road was so bad we decided to try this hotel for food. The restaurant was cosy and very busy. There were several choices on the menu. Food was excellent and service very good. Lovely beer garden to the rear.

Booked 2 rooms for the night. There were other costlier options in town but for the one night stay it served our purpose well. It certainly provided good value - the rooms were clean and neat and the next morning's breakfast was quite good. Service was also nice and friendly. Location was very convenient to explore the area. We drove... More
