This charming & unique B & B is the only place I've ever seen reviewed on this site with such long, detailed & glowing reviews!! And most importantly, all of the comments are SO VERY true, based on our own recent experience staying at this amazing bit of Ireland's Burren area! We can only repeat what has been said so... More

We stayed here for two nights in a big room with mountain view which was beautiful and calm. The bed was very comfortable and the room very clean. The room was very quiet and I didn't hear any other guests. The bathroom was kind of old and the water pressure in the shower was bad, but that is the only... More

We enjoyed staying at this B&B, although with 10 rooms it was more like a small boutique hotel, but we still felt very welcome by the owner Conor and he was very helpful recommending places in the area. Our rooms were lovely and came with soap, a hot water kettle, tea and snacks. The rooms were large and very charming.... More

This is a superb B&B. It is only 1km from town, it has plenty of car parking, the rooms are enormous, the breakfast is great, and the hosts are very helpful. They gave us lots of really good tips to maximize what we saw in the limited time that we had, and some really interesting reading material. If you are... More

We stayed at Cappabhaile house for one night recently, and thoroughly enjoyed our visit. The room was the largest we had stayed in in Ireland, with comfortable sofas for sprawling in as well as a large bay window for staring at the pastoral scenery. The location of the house was very quiet and peaceful overall. There was a wide range... More

I stayed here with my family last week. It was the highlight of our stay! The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast is beautifully presented and delicious. Conor is incredibly helpful, setting up a special tour of the Aran Islands. We only stayed for two days, but I would have happily stayed much longer.

I stayed here with a friend of mine for two nights. The room is huge, comfy beds and very clean. The breakfast was of a very high standard, such have taken a photo but couldn't wait to dig in. The location was fabulous, in the heart of everything we wanted to do in County Clare. Just a small drive to... More

If you are traveling through the Burren, this is THE place to stay. It was the nicest room our family of four had in our two week tour of Ireland. You might consider using it as a base for many of areas of interest around Co. Clare and even Galway. Huge, comfortable rooms, an amazing breakfast and hosts that seem... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As a large, spacious B&B in the Burren Hills, we offer great rooms and a very extensive breakfast, coupled with peace, quiet and a warm family welcome in a rural environment. We are situated right in the middle of the Burren region, which is a mountainous terrain in North Clare, famous for its flowers, rocks and scenery. The accommodation at Cappabhaile House is unique, with fantastic views of the Burren Hills. We have built on our own 12-acre site, where you can mingle amongst the cattle and take a stroll at your leisure. ... more   less
