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

We arrived late having just got off the plane from Australia and driven straight here from Dublin. Our waitress was very attentive and helped us with our choices. The carrot and coriander soup was perfect and the ciabatta was well presented and crispy. We only ate here so I cannot comment on the rooms, but the cafe here is very... More

This hotel was built in the 1800s and you feel the charm. It is fresh and well kept, but the styling and decor make you feel like you're in some BBC period drama. Our room was an adequate size, the bathroom was spacious with a full size tub and shower. Breakfast was nice, staff was helpful. There is no elevator,... More

The lunch menu was fairly comprehensive... More

I had booked multiple rooms (4 in total) in this hotel for an overnight stay during the May Bank Holiday weekend through one of the hotel booking websites. The booking was confirmed and paid for in full. Not long before going on our stay, I received a phone call from the owner of the hotel informing me that they cancelled... More
