Very good B&B with a really nice owner! Be sure to ask him for some dinner recommendations and if the weather allows you take the hike to the Cliffs of Moher! (do take mind that you have to hitchhike back or wait for a bus that only comes 3 times a day) We were able to hitchhike back. The breakfast... More

My husband and I stopped in to the Fisherman's Rest when passing through Doolin and got a room for the night. Not only did we get a room, but we also had a view of the Cliffs of Moher in the distance. The room was clean and cozy, had a private bathroom and was perfect for a night to rest.... More

B&Bs should either be in business or closed for the season. Although the room was clean and the breakfast generous, we felt that it was more of a meeting place for local heavy drinkers than a B&B. Much more irritating, we were in Doolin to catch the ferry to Inis Mor at the time shown on the ferry website. The... More

Found this B&B by accident and it couldn't have been any better. Room was clean and roomy. But the best part was Danny and their dog Bitsy. Just listening to Danny's stories was entertaining. Bitsy was also a ball of energy and kept us laughing. I would welcome them into my house in a heartbeat. Thanks, Tony and Mary

Danny was a very cool and friendly host, always having a funny joke even at breakfast as well as providing great tips where to go. 4. The BnB is very close to the O'Connors pub... More

If you are ever in Doolin visiting the Cliffs of Moher, staying anywhere else would be a mistake! My boyfriend and I arrived late one night around 9pm after visiting the Cliffs of Moher. With no reservation, Danny welcomed us whole heartedly. He showed us to our room and made us laugh a lot. The room was immaculate. We had... More

No reservation needed! We just dropped in front door and got very friendly welcome and help with our luggage to take it to the second floor. We stayed 3 nights, that was our first experience with B&B in Ireland. First night Danny had only standard room for us: very small room with a double bed, there is practically no room... More
