We stayed at the Imperial in Lisdoovarna, then checked this place out. First off, they were very helpful and friendly, providing directions and advice even to non-guests. Their bar is stocked with the widest selection of Irish Whiskeys in Clare, including local rarities Black Bush, Red Bird, 18 year Jamesons, Gold Reserve Jamesons, Pady's, and several blends of bushmills.

What a lovely homely friendly hotel, stayed there last week with three other lady friends. The staff are absolutely fantastic, friendly and very helpful. Lynn and John (the owners) are a lovely couple and made us feel very welcome. Each morning after a lovely breakfast we went outside for a smoke and John brought us out lovely cups of cappucino...

Stayed here in a large group. Rooms were clean and tidy and plenty big enough. We ate in the bar in the evening which was ok. Music was really good and kids enjoyed it too. Kids were very tired around quarter to twelve so we went to bed. Family room was located directly above the music so we could here... More

My son and I stayed here for a Friday night and we were so impressed we stayed another day. The staff were friendly and helpful at check-in. We had been looking for a place with Wi-Fi and they couldn't guarantee that all the rooms had it. They recommended a B&B down the road...his router was broken so back we went!!... More

I've been travelling around Europe for 2 months and nowhere have I experienced the level of friendliness and hospitality as I did whilst staying here at the Rauthbaun. It had such a warm and homely feel. My bed was super comfortable and the room nice and cosy. Breakfast was beautiful.. a full selection of hot and cold food to choose... More

...couldn't have found the welcome from Lynn, Declan, and their family (all who seem to work in the restaurant!) any warmer. In a six night stay (at Dermot Dooley's excellent Claherleigh House B&B) we came here for dinner three times. Portions are generous, service quick, and the food wholesome and tasty. It's not a 5-star dining experience but doesn't pretend... More

The Rathbaun is truly a gem, the owners are wonderful hosts, and obviously have a passion for what they do. The food is great, the rooms are clean and one of my favorite perks, you get a real blanket; nice and thick. I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel at all. Enjoy your stay, it will be a good...

We stayed here for one night. We met the owner, and while she seemed a bit rushed (I think she was taking care of pretty much everything herself that night), she was very helpful and friendly. We had an issue with our toilet not working properly and she attended to it right away. Very good service. The issue ended up... More
