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.

If ever in Doolin, Ireland, you must stay at the Doolin Lodge. The rooms are big and have beautiful views of green fields with cows and horses. The owners, Dierdre and Niall , are very accommodating. The beds are comfortable, towels soft and great showers. The breakfast was tasty, the dining room very pretty and the staff so friendly. It... More

We drove into Doolin without a booking, hoping to wing it and find a place. Most of the places were booked except a few of the B&Bs, so it was nice to be able to get a room for two nights here. The staff was great, rooms cozy and quiet. Felt more like an inn than your traditional BB like... More

Couldn't have been happier here. Wonderful big windows opening to field and sky. A very nice common area and library in our lodging building. En suite bath. It's a short walk to the shops and pubs but far enough away to get a good quiet sleep. Beds are superb. Breakfast was simply great and the service was outstanding. Note that... More
