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

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.
