My daughter and I stayed for two nights at Drumcreehy House last August when we visited Ireland for the first time. It had come highly recommended by friends and we very pleased with our time there. Bernadette and her husband, Armin are wonderful hosts who went out of their way to help make our trip extra special. We had some... More

I must have driven past Drumcreehy House dozens of times, and kept saying to myself that one day, I would stay there. The opportunity arose in October 2013, when my daughter and I wanted to stay in the area, in order to attend the Burren Winterage festival. Armin and Bernadette were away, but their charming daughter made us feel most... More

This was a third stay for us at Drumcreehy House since April - this time with family from South Africa. Bernadette and Armin looked after us and made both our families feel at home. Great location and a delicious breakfast - easy access to the Burren, Cliffs of Moher etc

When I think of what I look for in a B&B experience, Drumcreehy Country House pretty much defines it. Quiet, comfortable, inviting and personal -- but also professionally run. One thing that this B&B does better than almost any I've been to is breakfast. The buffet spread was amazing. The range of fruit - dried, fresh, and made into preserves... More

I cannot speak highly enough of this wonderful guesthouse. Good location, people very friendly and helpful, spotlessly clean, amazing range and presentation of breakfast items. Would definitely go back.

My husband and I stayed at the Drumcreehy our first two nights in Ireland. The "Fushia Room" has a king-sized bed and was very comfortable. I loved the honor bar, where you can get coffee or tea as well as beer, wine, or other beverages 24/7. The breakfast had a nice choice of cooked selections such as bacon and an... More

My wife & I traveled to the west coast of Ireland to see The Burren and other sites there. We stayed at Drumcreehy House in Ballyvaughn, Ireland. We couldn't have made a better choice for the area. The proprietors were friendly, helpful and gracious. Their helpers were most courteous and delightful individuals. The house was spacious and very comfortable. We... More

The attention to detail and available choices were exceptional. The house, grounds & setting are stunning - though there is no pavement if you want to walk into the village. Bernadette & Armin are excellent & sympathetic hosts. We enjoyed an impressive & memorable weekend.

Our family reserved 6 rooms at the Drumcreehy House... and our only regret is that we planned only one night. This is a beautiful Inn just minutes from a lovely small town with The Burren in your backyard and the sea out the front door. Wonderful hospitality and delicious breakfast. Can't wait to return.
