Stayed in Cappabhaile house twice last month. The title says it all. By far the best B&B accommodation I can ever recall staying in. Location was perfect, the rooms were superb and clean. Slightly more costly than other B&Bs but worth it... The owner and staff were really friendly.. What a great start to the Burren if you are heading... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with family and friends. Can't speak highly enough about this B&B. Great location if you are touring around the Burren. Rooms are very spacious and clean, the breakfasts were great. The owner, Conor has an encyclopedic knowledge of the area and is so friendly and obliging.

This is a long, long overdue review (I slept here in April 2012, not recently), but I promised the owner I would have written one, and here it is. We arrived at Ballyvaughan late at night, under a thunderstorm, so we actually ran into the hall where we were greeted in a most friendly way. The owner knew we were... More

The Burren is a unique and beautiful area in North-east County Clare, south of Galway, Ireland. Cappabhaile House is a superb guest house in a great location and excellent value. Views are delightful. The rooms are well-furnished and spacious. (A tiny bit less so in the Annex, where they are simply 'Very Good'). The breakfasts are spectacular- Go for the... More

The room we stayed in was large and super comfortable and extremely clean and the breakfast was delicious, the location was absolutely stunning. We walked for hours. However, what really made this trip was the owners. They were the best hosts I have ever come across, they went the extra 100 miles to make our birthday visit so special and... More

My friend and I stayed here for a couple of days in a lovely designed large and clean room with a great view on the mountains. We got a lot of useful and good advices about what to do in the area. The breakfast in the morning was a highlight everyday.

Cappabhaile is a very lovely Bed and Breakfast located just outside of Ballyvaughan. The accommodation is spacious and the breakfast is very good. Our hosts were very generous with their time and recommended a number of local restaurants including Linnanes.

The best b & b in Ireland if you like large & impeccably clean well furnished rooms. If you like peaceful and soothing views of cattle grazing in the next door pasture, if you like a lovingly prepared breakfast of the very highest quality, and if you appreciate attentive and knowledgeable owners. Margaret and Conor have elevated customer service and... More

We had a lovely stay at this b&b. The room and bathroom were large and furnished with comfortable, plush furnishings. The bed was comfortable and had a nice view out to the garden and castle in the distance. The only negatives were that the water pressure wasn't great, perhaps because other people were using it too, and you could hear... More

We have been on a three week tour of Ireland, and have stayed at many B&Bs along the way. This is one of the best! We were able to check in early, and the rooms were large and well appointed. The innkeepers are so friendly and helpful. We were given a map of local sites and specific directions to a... More
