Excellent venue with ample space and perfect location. We couldn't have asked for more and felt right at home immediately. We travelled as a group and had 2 lodges, both were fantastic. As a couple we stayed in the attic apartment and it really was beautiful with the perfect little balcony. Our friends, a family with kids had a large... More

Very nice room, very euro style. Heated floors, good everything. The heat and the spaciousness were very much appreciated at the end of the day where we had inch an hour rain and were thoroughly drenched. Good Irish breakfast in the morning. Met our needs and would stay there again.

The rooms were very clean and cozy and it was really close to town for only 35 euro a night. The breakfast was lacking since our group of 4 didn't really like it, however the actual rooms were really nice and for the price a few nights there wouldn't be too bad

Reception was friendly and efficient. Rooms are well appointed and very clean and quiet. The bed was very comfortable. We had an early breakfast and it was exceptional. Quick, friendly service and very tasty Irish breakfast served at the table. Lots of parking space.

We had an excellent stay at The Lodge. It is of fairly new construction but built to resemble an old rock-walled compound. Very tastefully done, offering all the modern conveniences with the charm and feel of a traditional Irish roadhouse. The rooms were good-sized and well furnished. The owner was warm and helpful with suggestions for our two-day stay in... More

Modern, nice rooms, good breakfast, very friendly staff, good location. We were on bikes, and the front desk gave excellent advice on how to visit the Cliffs of Moher while avoid the busiest roads. The price was a good deal compared to other similar places in the area.

This B&B is nice enough but the room we had (#40) showed serious signs of neglect. Broken shower handle, shower head taped up with electrical tape (Yes! electrical tape!!) empty hand soap dispensers and super-hot bulbs (hot enough to burn your fingers) in the bedside reading lights. Honestly, the owner needs to have a chat with the manager about doing... More

Dear Chris R, Thank you for taking the time to review The Lodge, we take all comments on board. We use low energy bulbs throughout the Lodge, I will investigate the issue with them being hot, it hasn't been mentioned before and we haven't noticed it ourselves, so thank you for pointing it out. As you experienced the rural setting... More

We were looking for a two-night stay in a b&b in Doolin and ended up with a top-floor apartment with a balcony for about 5 euros more per night! The Lodge was just what we needed to stretch out for awhile. The apartment was clean and comfortable, with a beautiful view. It was very convenient for walking to pubs and... More

If you're going to Doolin you can't do better than the Doolin Lodge. We rented a self catering apt. for 3 nights for friends and family. The apt. was quite large and very well appointed. The Lodge is within walking distance of all the activites in Doolin. Deidre and her staff could not have been more helpful or accomodating. They... More

There isn't a ton to do and see in Doolin but if you need to crash there a night or two this place is a great choice for the money. Seems very new and clean, large communal kitchens available but we did not use them. Staff was very friendly. Breakfast was decent, nothing spectacular. You can walk to the major... More
