We stayed in Doolin for 10 days and stayed here the entire time. The owners were very helpful prior to our arrival via email, then we were very pleased when we checked in. Very helpful staff, they have its maps and helpful hints. The full breakfast was very good, even tried the salmon,I love salmon, but was a little hesitant... More

We arrived in Doolin without a reservation and were happy to find a room here, we saw 2 other places first but this was better by far. Friendly host, big clean room and a hearty breakfast next day. We decided to stay on another night as there is more to do in and around Doolin than we realised. It is... More

We had a lovely and large room. In floor heating very comfortable. Good wifi service. They could add a few touches to make it a bit more upscale such as more pillows, more decorations, tissue in room, etc. The place offers self-catering so would be superb for that. As a one-night stay the room just lacked a few amenities. Owners... More

Spent 2 nights here in September and I must say we were both very impressed. Everything was above our expectations. Huge bed in a huge room, spotlessly clean, and a large ensuite well lit with natural light. Breakfast was a pleasant affair, great food and friendly staff. Niall, the owner was helpful sorting out our excursions each day. We highly... More

Like to thank Dierdre and Niall for their hospitality during our recent 2 night stay. Again, this was my second visit to Doolin and the Doolin Lodge. We actually stayed in the same rooms as last year. All was good with our stay, the TV's were not receiving signals upon arrival but were promptly fixed. Rooms were clean, and the... More

My family and friends stayed at the Lodge in Doolin for 3 nights. We had a beautiful 4 bedroom 3 bathroom apartment on the ground level. As we had my ninety year old father with us we were worried about getting him upstairs to the dining room in the morning for breakfast but the wonderful staff brought our breakfast down... More

My dad and I had a chance to stay at the Doolin Lodge on our way through Ireland. The place was neat and clean. Breakfast was very good and all of the staff were very nice. This place is very close to the oats that take you over to the Aran Islands and made a great walk each morning down... More

Stayed at the Lodge on a Friday nite, all of Doolin was booked solid for Saturday night, but Dierdre and Niall went out of their way to find a place for us at another spot for Sat. night. Luckily, a last minute cancellation meant we could stay at the Lodge! Yay! We were thrilled as it is a wonderful location,... More

This was a central location in Doolin with nice grounds and facilities. The room was clean and pleasant, with light from the skylights/windows. Breakfast was substantial and good, with attentive and friendly staff.
