Comfortable and lovely country house hotel. Food by John Sheedy was fabulous. Our hostess, Martina, was really welcoming and took care of everything we needed. We were also on a VBT bike tour and they have a great relationship with the tour guides.

We stayed here for 2 nights, while on VBT bicycle tour. First of all, the owner Martina is the kindest, most attentive host you could hope for. She is so warm and helpful, and got to know most if not all of our names in 2 days ( a group of 20). Our room was huge- it actually was 2... More

We stayed here for one night. We were warmly welcomed upon arrival and shown to our room. The room was great! We had a large room with its own sitting room attached so there was loads of space. The bathroom was large too and the shower had high pressure which was fantastic. We also ate in the bar and the... More

Stayed for a 2-night break recently and was completely wowed by the quality and attention to detail here. This is an under sung gem in the North Clare hospitality scene: I had eaten here and loved it a couple of times but really when you stay, you get the full package - John's amazing cooking and Martina's wonderfully warm hostess...

My cousin and I had a twin bed room here for two nights .it was the best place we stayed in during our trip. Nothing was too much trouble and the food at both breakfast and dinner was fantastic. We were also put in contact with a local guide who took us walking out in the Burren. What a spectacular... More

This is a very well run, friendly and comfortable hotel. On arrival one immediately senses the genuine warm welcome, which is reinforced by the the fresh pot of tea and biscuits delivered to one's room, despite having tea /coffee making equipment available in the room. This is a small family run hotel, where John Sheedy is the chef, who is... More

We enjoyed an evening at this lovely owner-run hotel after visiting the Cliffs. Small, quaint hotel that literally goes to bed at night. Very nice breakfast in the morning. Rooms are medium sized but well apportioned. Wonderfully large showers in the US style.Right around the block from Burren Smokehouse.

The moment we arrived at Sheedy's we wanted to extend our stay. We loved everything about the place -- from the service, to the friendliness, to the gorgeous room, to the amazing food both at breakfast and dinner, to its location -- it is listed as a four star but in our opinion is much more than deserving of a...

This is a real gem! We only stayed one night this week but having left there and travelled to other hotels in the west, there is absolutely no comparison When it comes to food,service and attention to detail one can expect from Sheedys. Our room was lovely and comfortable, there's a delightful snug bar in which to relax in the... More
