Forget the rest we have found the best in the Rathbaun. At the matchmaking festival we found the music fantastic, non stop and very entertaining. We were not interested in finding a beau and only went for the Guinness and the craic and we had a wonderful time. The hotel was spotless, the rooms were comfortable and our tea tray... More

The hotel is located in a quaint country village with an unpronounceable name - Lisdoonvarna in County Clare. A great little village for those who want to get away from the hustle and bustle. It is located in typically scenic country Ireland however it is conveniently located close to many must see destinations such as the Cliffs of Moher. The... More

Stayed in the Rathbaun for 2 nights at the start of a long Ireland vacation and could not have been happier. All members of the staff were energetic and attentive, rooms were clean and comfortable, entertainment was fun, and the food was delicious. The owners (Lynn and John Connally) are active onsite managers who work hard to ensure you are... More

John and Lynn, the owners could not have been nicer. We stayed only one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Everyone who worked at the hotel and restaurant was so friendly. We ended up eating lunch when we got there as our room wasn't quite ready and we'd just flown in to Shannon from the US that morning... More

We stayed two nights and were always well served by the friendly staff, nothing too much to help with travel advice or ensure our meal was perfect. On top of that, entertainment every night from a young Irish group from 8.00pm until midnight.

We stayed one night and would happily return. The whole experience was excellent and at very reasonable rates. The accommodation was very good, the food good and the service outstanding. We didn't need to go anywhere-else, the Rathbaun had everything we required finishing off with the music which entertained us non-stop for four hours with not a minute wasted. This... More

Just home from a 5 day break which included two nights in Lisdoonvarna. The first night we had a meal in an establishment in the small Square in Lisdoonvarna which could only be described as poor. The second night in the Rathbaun was excellent! Four of us had such a meal and stayed on for the music and the beer!... More
