Frank was a great host, and he had great recommendations for local food and activities in the area. The room was comfortable and the larger sitting room provided a restful place to relax. It was really nice being able to talk to Frank our host about local attractions - his local knowledge is a big bonus!

We spend 2 nights and 2 days at the Doonmacfelim and Frank was so helpful and accommodating. It was the perfect spot to be at the centre of Doolin (so close to the bus and the path to the cliffs of moher)! It was our first B&B in Ireland and we loved it.

We enjoyed our stay in Doolin. Frank was a very friendly and helpful host. His suggestion to go to O'Connors pub (a 5min walk) for a meal an music in the evening was a beauty - we had a great meal and a great night! The room was clean and comfortable, and he served an excellent breakfast. Would recommend. We... More

After spending 10 days in the Irish sunshine, we found the soft rain of Ireland in Doolin. However the accommodations were inviting including the sitting room that we didn't have time to sit in. We went on the recommendation of Frank to O'Conner's Pub 5 minutes walk for food and music. Both were great! We enjoyed our breakfast which we... More

One of the best rooms during our trek across the island - very roomy bedroom & bath. Great location within walking distance to shops and restaurants in this friendly little village. Only downer - burned, frozen waffles. Our friend ordered traditional Irish breakfast and it was very tasty.

Our flight arrived in Shannon at 600am and prior to that day, had several email exchanges with Frank. 3 to 6 pm is normal check in time, but I asked for an early check in time of 10 to 11am. Frank said I would need to rent the room for the night before if I wanted to guarantee a bed.... More

Everything was perfect here. Frank is a great host and goes out of his way to help, even as far as digging out his supplies (during his busy breakfast), to help me fix a blown out hiking shoe! Our room was clean, and very comfortable. The breakfast was awesome. The location-perfect to the pubs (though not too close to the... More

Frank was a friendly accommodating host. Rooms were spacious and clean and the breakfast was excellent. It was a nice easy walk to the pub. Frank coped with our large group of 13 women on a hen very well!

Perfect location between the 3 local music pubs. Frank is a good host. Doolin is location for the Berren, Cliffs of Moher and golf in Lahinch. The hike between the COM visitor center and Hags Head is spectacular!
