Four of us shared the accommodation, with a room each. Clean & comfortable, and 3 bathrooms (1 en-suite). The large bedroom had 2 double beds, and a very spacious shower stall. Breakfast was good, and reasonably priced (€8) & we took advantage of it most days. It was an easy walk to Doolin's many pubs, all of which seemed to... More

This building appears to be a barn conversion. The lodge is in two buildings. Our room was big and comfortable with three double beds. The shower/bath was also very large. Everything was very clean. The shower doors were not in good shape - it made showering a bit difficult as they wouldn't stay closed or stay on their tracks. The... More

We were lucky to find a room here top clean up in after a day exploring the nearby Aran islands. A great location as it is close to the ferry and to the cliffs of Moher. The room was large and beautiful, and the staff were great. Our only issue was an underwhelming breakfast, but the great stay trumps that... More

This was a very good deal - the room was very nicely appointed and sized (as everyone else has stated). There could be slightly better maintenance of the bathroom (the pipe in my shower where the shower head slides was rusty) but overall I was happy with the room and the breakfast. To note, this is not what one typically... More

My travel mate and I thought this place would be out of our budget, but we were pleasantly surprised in every way. The room was spacious and warm. The bathroom wasn't brand new, but everything was spotless and there was also free wifi. There was also a full communal kitchen and long room in the downstairs area. The staff were... More

My husband and I and our two daughters aged 8 & 11 are just back after spending a night here. GREAT VALUE for a family of four on a saturday night for only 80 euros, after a bit of bargaining. We got a huge bedroom with 2 double beds and a single. Massive bathroom with toilet, bath and shower.There was... More

We really enjoyed our stay in the Lodge in Doolin with its great location, plentiful parking, and great breakfast. Laundry was a great deal and the desk personnel helped set up last minute horseback riding for the family. Sometimes it was hard to track down the front desk people but they were always helpful. The rooms were great and we... More

As the leader of a now 100 member strong pub crawl group, I've been to Ireland many times and have stayed in hostels, castles and everything in-between. We just returned from our 10-day excursion, and The Lodge was absolutely the PERFECT place for us. Deirdre and I had been working on this trip for well over a year, and she... More
