A friend of my husband's had stayed here and recommended Cullinan's to us and I am so happy they did. My husband, myself and our 18 and 22 year old daughters stayed three nights and were very happy. The location is wonderful for touring the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Moher, and the Burren. It is easy walking distance to... More

I recently spent an entire week in Ireland, looking back at the week this was our favorite hotel and dinner experience. Carol Cullinan, owner and operator was wonderful. When we booked our room she asked if we were interested in having dinner, we are so glad we did. James Cullinan, owner and chef did a fabulous job on dinner. It... More

Very disappointed with our evening. We were delighted to get a booking as we were told to book well in advance, but the restaurant is quite small which explains that.The Food is totally over rated. We weren't given any veg with our main course? The staff weren't in the least bit friendly in fact we found them quite pushy. I... More

We are just back from a two day visit to Clare, staying at Cullinan's on both nights. The Guest House is superbly located to all the sights Clare has to offer (Burren, Wild Atlantic Way, Cliffs of Moher etc.) and ideally located in the centre of Doolin village, with it's wonderful bars and live music. Our hosts, Carol and James... More

We stayed at Cullinan's just the other night & from the time we walked in the front door until we left in the morning, we were made to feel right at home by Carol. She is a wonderful host & answered every question and took care of our every need. The rooms of the guesthouse were spacious and ours even... More

We stayed at Culinnan's the first week of July 2014, and found this guesthouse to be the perfect choice for us. The place was simple, neat, and quiet. We had a room overlooking the river (stream) and lovely country side, with everything a family of three could need. Carol was a very welcoming host always doing her best to accommodate... More

Cullinan's is located close to the TI and pub with beautiful views of the countryside. Our hosts were wonderful and the breakfasts were lovely! We chose a family room for five of us which was a little tight and a bit loud late into one night when a wedding occurred across the street (but I think this was an out... More

His was one if the nicer B&B's we stayed in, almost like a small hotel really. Our room was decorated in the modern style and in the back corner of the second building with two large windows overlooking a bubbling stream. Excellent bird watching spot! In town yet quiet, powerful shower, good breakfast. The owners were professional yet warm. We... More

Stayed here in June 2014. This place was the perfect spot to stay...walking distance to the pubs, easy access to Cliffs, Doolin, and the pier. The owners could not have been nicer, the food was fantastic, and the rooms very comfortable.

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.
