We stayed as a couple in two different rooms based on availability, but the staff were very accommodating in this. The breakfast was excellent, we got to choose from a list of options that were all homemade. The place was very cute, great decor, and very clean. The location was walking distance from most of the pubs and restaurants and... More

We chose the upstairs room with the fire escape and it was as cute as on the website with its sloping timber ceiling and fairy-height wardrobe. Two minutes walk brings you to two pubs, one on either side of the tiny bridge. My favourite was the closer one, McDermotts Pub, which had a gorgeous old room to the left of... More

We had a great visit at the Half Door! Anne greeted us with tea and her homemade bread. Our room was clean and comfortable! Breakfast was delicious! Anne's special eggs were the best! Coffee, tea, and hot chocolate were available whenever we wanted. Good location, just a short drive to the Cliff's of Moher!

With a Rick Steve's recommendation we chose the Half Door B&B as our stay between the Aran Islands and Kenmare and all I have to stay is I wish we could have stayed longer! Absolutely beautiful place! Cozy, clean, stylish. The owner is friendly and makes a delicious breakfast! Everything was laid out and explained to us on arrival. Which... More

This place was really cozy and clean. Anne was very hospitable and welcoming. Our rooms were really nice and comfortable. Breakfast was delicious and I would recommend Anne's special eggs. We had a great time and I would stay here again!

Great location in the heart of Doolin village. Accommodation pleasant and homely. Ann very pleasant host who provided a lovely breakfast. Wifi reception very very poor in allocated room. No TV in room - TV provided in shared lounge area.

Had a great time at the half door a home from home in a beautiful part of Ireland! Ann was very helpful as we had got a little lost on the way and she guided us for a good part of our journey. Breakfast was very nice and rooms were comfortable and clean location was great and so much to... More

I spent just one night at Half Door B&B but I would return if I ever get the chance to go back to Doolin (hope so!) It's a welcoming place and the rooms are clean and cosy. Breakfast was very nice with a great range of choices. Location is great too with a couple of pubs a stone's throw away,... More

Anne and Sophie were kind and helpful hosts in a lovely red trim on white inn. The rooms were spacious and beautifully decorated with modern bathrooms, and breakfast was delicious with lots of choices and extras such as fruit bread. Both gave us good advice on which pubs to visit for food and music and advice on what to sightsee... More

We usually find Rick Steves' recommendations right on target, but owner Ann could have been more welcoming. Arriving by bus at noon time and finding it quite cold outside, we were allowed to put luggage inside, but not allowed to stay inside, even though our room was cleaned and empty. Had to wait until 3. As everything in Doolin requires... More

I am sorry that you did not enjoy you stay with us and I am also surprised as I though I was helpful and friendly from the Get go. First off you enquired about a three night stay with us but we only had availability for one night so I contacted other B&B's nearby until I found one with availability... More
