Fantastic place to stay. Clean,and fresh.The staff are caring kind and professional. The owners are very helpful, nothing was a problem. The food was out of this world. So fresh and prepared like a Michelin star restaurant. We would highly recommend this charming guest house.

Stayed here with 6 friends. We occupied 3 rooms. I was in Room #3 which was the most updated of the 3 with a full tub rather than just a shower. Owner Carol was most gracious and helpful. The breakfast was terrific. Noise does travel through adjacent rooms but didn't bother us. Fitzgeralds pub is across the street which is... More

Get to the room and my view was of a babbling brook, a stone bridge over it , hills and a horse grazing in the distance. It felt like it was right out of a storybook. The room was clean. The staff was nice. The food at breakfast was really good. It was a short drive to go to Aran... More

Our family of 7 arrived in Doolin weary from travel. Carol showed us to our comfortable rooms. 2 doubles and a triple. Family commented that the doubles had really nice, newly remodeled bathrooms. One took a bath! We ended up having a family emergency back in the states which required some assistance from Carol, who was gracious and very comforting.... More

Cullinan's is an absolutely wonderful place to stay when visiting Doolin! The location is central and it is very easy to walk to various nearby pubs as well as shops in the town center. Doolin itself had wonderful music and great food, and we found it to be the perfect place to stay for our first night in Ireland. The... More

We had a nice size family room, kids had their own beds. Very clean and enough room to move around. We had breakfast the next morning which was very good. They took your order and cooked it fresh. Located right in town near pubs and shops.

This was my first time in a B&B and it was a lovely experience. Cullinan's is located central to everything; ten minute walk in either direction (not far at all) for the pubs and traditional music, and it is right across the street from Fitzpatrick's Bar. The pier for the ferries to the Aran Island or the Cliffs of Moher... More

When our reservation got mixed up and our hotel was overbooked, we snagged the last room at Cullinan's across the street. I heard B&B's were the way to go but was skeptical. Needless to say, our stay here was perfect. Carol was very welcoming and went out of her way to help coordinate our trip. The buttermilk pancakes at breakfast... More
