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

We stayed here for one night here and we had a very pleasant enjoyable experience. John was courteous, made us feel welcome and carried our bags to our room. This is an old Victorian Hotel so some people may find it lacking in elegance, but our room was clean, bed comfortable and the food was excellent. All the young waitresses... More

Myself and my boyfriend stopped in here in the evening to have dinner and enjoy some live music as it did come very highly recommended by the hotel we stayed in. The food was decent, decor simple and the music very pleasant, but we could not fail to notice the way the young staff are treated by the man with... More

We had a fantastic "mini break" in the Rathbaun Hotel Lisdoonvarna last week. We were warmly greeted on arrival by the owner "John" who went to great lengths' to explain the local amenities' and facilities to us. We were allowed have our dog stay with us. During our 3 days' there, we were treated to what can only be described... More

Did we ever enjoy our stay here. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Our room was actually quite large and was clean. We had a late supper at the bar/restaurant downstairs and ended up so happy with that decision. Best fish and chips on our whole trip and authentic Irish music.

Stayed here for a night, rooms are clean and quite big for the size of the place. We ate in the restaurant downstairs, the live music was fantastic, and they served THE best fish & chips I've ever had. Also the owners are super friendly and very helpful if you need anything. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights this summer with my children. I was completely appalled at the treatment of the staff there. More than once I witnessed one of the owners-usually the man, yelling at a girl or boy for not doing something as quick as they wanted, or for forgetting something basic, even when a mistake so...

We went for the live music and were not disappointed. A three piece played a variety of authentic music with some fun banter in between. It was not a large audience but those there were certainly very appreciative. We had a meal whilst we were there and it was both very reasonably priced AND delicious. The staff are very friendly...

Our trip to the Burren was a highlight of our tour. everyone had a great night watching the music provided for free every night. Would recommend anyone visiting the area to stay here. Thanks... More
