This was our second time staying at this small hotel. The first time was 25 years ago! This is a very, very nice smaller hotel. The rooms were very roomy and clean and the bathrooms were all updated. The hotel has a cozy feel about it. I am sure in cooler weather the fire places would make it even more... More

We enjoyed another return two-night visit to Hyland's, a long-established hotel well located in the centre of Ballyvaughan and a good base for touring the northern Burren. Room size varies. This time, we had a large one in the 'new' wing. Furniture and toiletries were adequate if unexciting. Only a few TV channels were available. The breakfast buffet was rather... More

If you are planning a walking holiday or a visit to the Burren, then this is the perfect location. The staff were really friendly and helpful, having a great knowledge of the area they work in. The food was fabulous. All 20 of us booked in for dinner on our first night. It was promptly served and tasted really good.... More

We spent one night at Hylands Burren Hotel. Hotel was clean and room was comfortable and value for money except the hot water ran out before we were able to have our morning shower. We were able to return to our room after breakfast when the hot water was restored. Traditional breakfast was included, although we had a bit of... More

Enjoyed our stay here very much and what a pretty village. Nice breakfast and very friendly service. Excellent nights sleep after a long walk aroound the area. Surprisingly good restaurants in the area as well, but more about that later.

While touring around Galway and Clare we stayed for two nights in Hyland's. It was a very pleasant experience. It is a three star unpretentious property with high standards. The room was a good size and the bed very comfortable. The bathroom was quite large with shower stall rather than a bath/shower. We had a difficulty with the shower on... More

Compelled to write a review of this hotel, we rarely resort to doing this due to time restrictions and busy schedules, but in this instance, we feel it would be a complete shame not to.

Stopped on way to next stop in Clifden. Rooms were large with a twin and a double. Place was well kept and clean. Food was fair but staff very nice and helpful. Had own car park also. Breakfast was traditional Irish breakfast that came with room.
