The Lodge in Doolin Ireland is a great location, walking distance from shops, pubs, and tourist shops. We found the rooms clean and the breakfast tasty! We enjoyed ourselves so much we arranged to stay a second unplanned night! Thank you!

We had a lovely time staying at Doolin Activity Lodge. It was so close to everything including two pubs that had the best live music--we sat so close we were almost part of the band! It was so nice to just have a short walk" home"afterwards. Also getting to the Cliffs was so easy--you could have even walked to them... More

My girlfriend and I spent 2 nights here in late June. Deirdre and Niall were very accommodating and were quick with tips as to where to dine and go locally. Thanks to their advice on the Aran Islands ferries we made the most of one day there including a visit to the Cliffs of Moher. The room was very clean... More

During our tour of Ireland we stayed in 5 B&B's and one hotel, and this one was the most disappointing. I'll start with the good : four of us were travelling, my husband and I, with our sons 13+18. It was good to each have our own Queen size bed. The breakfast was also quite good. Well located and clean.... More

This is a wonderful B&B in a wonderful location. First of all Doolin is great because there's so much to see in the vicinity and day trips are easy. The Lodge Doolin (they've changed their name) is a family-run B&B and they pay attention to their guests. The accommodations are spacious and comfortable. Ours had a shared living area with... More

The lodge is a nice place with great accommodations. Spacious and clean, and less than 5 minutes from the downtown area. The lodge also has laundry available to the guests (at cost). The breakfast is traditional Irish.

Our kids enjoyed watching the horses and cows frolic in the field next to the B&B. The rooms were sufficient for our needs and the food was good. Walking to Old Doolin was an easy enough distance, and the views of the ocean and the Cliffs beyond the golf course were lovely. We took a ferry to Inisheer and rented... More
