Danny is great host and will point you in the right direction for Doolin's finest experiences and where to go for food and entertainment. He's a great character and the place is clean and comfortable. you'll also get a good fry up in the morning

Doolin was recommended as a "must see' by a woman in my town who had lived/worked/visited there a lot - SHE WAS RIGHT! Three tiny villages smushed into one, with Danny as HIGH KING! Fisherman's Rest is a comfy, welcoming and convenient place with a good breakfast and parking. And, with Danny's ebullient expertise, what more could one want?!

Danny is hilarious, fun, welcoming and an all-around great host. We stopped in here on the suggestion of the tourist office as we didn't have any place to stay and Danny happened to have a room for us. He's a joker and has plenty of pod stories! We walked to O'Connor's pub for a great night and in the morning... More

"Danny the Terrible" what a great host and laughter filled experience. The unique host who gives you a big dose of Irish humor - it made our trip to Doolin worthwhile!! The local knowledge of pubs, food & music was spot on. Aussies Liz and Don Page and travelers Bruce, Jan , Wendy and Garry

I have been to Danny's Fisherman's Rest B&B 6 times during the last few years. I can not imagine better place to say. The house is nice, and big, the rooms are confi, breakfast is great, BUT Danny's personality is the MOST important for me , and for my friends. Anytime we have guests from Hungary, the first trip goes... More

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

1.The rooms and bathrooms were very clean, the beds were comfortable (we stayed in two different rooms). 2. The irish breakfast was very tasty. 3. 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
