Rooms are very large, beds are comfortable, but it is stuck in the 1940's and needs to be updated. I love the vintage look but old worn and stained carpet and spreads and upholstery is not a good look.Breakfast was good, service was good, cost of the stay was average but not great.

We have stayed here many times and thoroughly enjoyed it. The hospitality is second to none and we feel most welcome every time. The rooms are excellent, comfortable and of a generous size, twice as big as the usual standard size bedrooms. The breakfasts are excellent and the location to Doolin is very close, we recommend the Aran View as... More

We live bed our stay. Our family room was spacious and comfortable. We were welcomed warmly, and the staff were friendly and helpful all round. The view! You couldn't ask for more! We witnessed a spectacular sunset before going into town for dinner and some live music. I would definitely stay here again - great value and style.

We popped into the Aran View on our trip through Doolin in the hopes they had a twin room available, which the did. Aran View is a family run hotel which was once a manor house. The room was spacious and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. The views are said to be spectacular, but it was raining when... More

The Aran View Hotel is a family fun country house on the edge of the sea in Doolin Ireland. We spent 3 nights there and felt totally at home. Cheryl and her mom run the hotel and gave us very personal service- from tea and scones delivered to our room, to a deck of cards for the kids, to wonderful... More

Aran View was a welcome site after the drive from Shannon airport. The view of Doolin driving in was quaint and beautiful. Staff was very friendly and helpful with activities and directions. Room was comfortable and quiet overlooking the Cliffs. Good breakfast. Would definitely recommend it.

The hotel is a bit tired to be honest and has a quirky layout. The food is decent but nothing out of the ordinary. It is comfortable though and the staff are very welcoming and helpful. This combined with the excellent location / views makes the hotel worth a visit.

We were blessed with a sunny day on our overnight at Aran View Hotel. The view took our breath away! If you can, request room 233, which looks out to the Cliffs of Mohar. The staff was very personable and flexible, especially in the morning breakfast rush. Don't expect a trendy place. Do expect a nice bed and great view.... More

My sister and I with our husbands had the pleasure of staying at this small hotel in early Sept. We arrived tired from our flight to Dublin and then a long drive to Doolin. The view from this hotel was worth it all. This hotel has views of the Irish Sea as well as the northern side of the Cliffs... More

The hotel is good, nothing less, nothing more: what is over the top is the stunning location that vary from the Aran Islands to the Cliffs of Moher. The key point of this location is the lovely and friendly staff, that gives reason to all the excellent reviews that you can read here!
