This hotel is old but quaint. The bathrooms could definitely do with refurbishing, but was nice and comfortable. The food was great as was the ambience of the bar. The room was cold and I couldn't get the heating working, 2 calls down to reception and still no heating, I ended up getting into bed to get warm, a bit... More

Staying at this hotel is reflecting on the past years of wonderful service and charming old world grace. A highly recommend stop on the way to the Burren Co. Clare. Service, food,atmosphere , beyond great. Thanks Christina and staff for a lovely visit.

Stayed as part of a small group, Dinner, B & B. for Midweek Break. Comfortable Rooms, Friendly Management & Staff, Tasty Filling Breakfasts & Pub Menu Dinners which were well presented, tasty and hearty! Definitely worth a revisit - with coastal & inland scenery which is stunning. Brilliant for a refreshing break!

There has to be a reason why this hotel is not best in its class in the area. Perhaps it is the relatively short season for high occupancy but its charm, location and, for the most part, very welcoming and pleasant staff, is let down by series of small oversights that could be remedied by closer management attention. We had... More

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
