We stayed in Doolin Activity Lodge for two nights. It is a really great place to stay. The Bedrooms are well furnished and a good size. We had a three bedroom apartment, each bedroom had its own en suite, and there was also a main bathroom. The kitchen/living room was a good size, with a well equipped kitchen, good TV... More

A hen party of 17 ladies spent the night here and it was just what we were looking for! With all the chopping and changing of the group numbers, Deirdre was so accommodating. A large living space for all the party to get together before dinner and the bedrooms were spacious, well equipped and clean. All of which were ensuite... More

Fantastic location, beautiful fully kitted apartments, lots of lovely unexpected extras like underfloor heating and a seriously cosy apartment when you arrive on a cold wet night. Perfect spot to explore the Cliffs, the Burren, Doolin Caves and the top quality trad music in Doolin. Really looking forward to going back again and great value too. Niall and Deirdre really...

After staying in several above-average Bed and Breakfast accommodations, this place was jarring for us. It's quaint from the outside, but the rooms are very stark. Large rooms, but felt sterile - wood flooring and very few pieces of furniture. For those traveling on a budget, this is a good value.

Dear Loves2Travel0515, Thank you for taking the time to submit a review on Trip Advisor, however, we are somewhat disapointed with it, especially with your title, which we feel is slightly unfair. The Lodge was purpose built and all our rooms were designed and equipped to meet 4 star Failte Ireland standards. We try to avoid the fussy/busy/flowery type approach... More

The Doolin Activity Lodge is wonderful! Our hosts, Diedre and Niall, could not have been more welcoming to our party of four. We stayed in a very clean and well appointed three-bedroom suite complete with a full kitchen and comfortable sitting/dining area. Wonderful full Irish breakfast in the dining room got us off to a great start every morning! Super... More

Spent 3 weeks in Ireland. Stayed in a range of places from high end (Ballymaloe House ) to small inns. This was one of the best. Great Breakfast, spacious suite with everything we could possibly need, very accommodating and helpful hosts. Very Short walk to great Irish music, not sure I could ask for more - we extended our stay... More

Can't rave highly enough about the Doolin Activity Lodge, I stayed for New Years with a group of friends and it was fantastic. The whole place was so warm & cosy with everything we needed for a big group. It was also very handy to be within walking distance of the pubs! We'll be back!!

The Doolin Lodge was our first stop on a 3 week tour of Ireland. It was the only lodging we booked sight un-seen, since it would be our first stop. What a great choice!! Far exceeded our expectations. We really did not want to leave. Food, reception, housekeeping, discount for paying cash, the list goes on and on. Oh, yes,... More

We only stayed one night. Had a room looking South with 2 upper windows overlooking pastures. The beds were comfortable, clean linens, very quiet. Huge breakfast option was impressive: Juices, cereals, but I had the full Irish breakfast and none was better in Ireland. We toured from Westport south, then east and back to Dublin along the coast.
