We stayed one night in this B&B. It was small and cosy - there are 4 rooms. These rooms are clean and tidy. The Breakfast was great and set us up for the day The hosts were really friendly and were able to advise us on where to eat in the village. The great advantage is that it is not... More

My husband and I stayed here the first night we arrived in Ireland. I have to say we were very glad we chose Nellie Dee's! We were warmly welcomed by jimmy and Lorraine. They gave us great recommendations on where to go for food and irish music! We couldn't fault Nellie Dees's, our room was clean and comfortable, 3 minute... More

I stayed here with my three teenaged kids. They were thrilled that the internet was strong. Haha. The things kids focus on. Also the three great pubs in town are within walking distance. Rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. Windows open so even in the warm weather we were very comfortable. Jimmy met us and took our order for... More

Doolin is such a warm and welcoming community. Nellie Dee's is just at top end of Doolin. It is perfect to walk off those pints you had while listening to all the music Doolin is known for. It is far enough away that you do not hear all the partying that goes on at times at the pubs in the... More

Beautiful little B&B in a rural area. The rooms are only "small" by American hotel comparison. Ours was spotless and very neat!. The view from the breakfast area is of the Cliffs of Moher in the distance. On a clear day it is absolutely inspiring. Jimmy is informative and as helpful as can be! Delightful to stay here!

We had called to let Jimmy know that we would be late (after 6PM). Arrived after a beautiful yet long coastal drive through the Burren. Our room was small and clean. The bathroom was very small, but we made it work... The next morning, Jimmy greeted us with his Irish humor and the porridge (oatmeal) was the best of the... More

I had e-mail correspondence with the owners before staying there and they were helpful with advice and things to do in the area (and it was April so they told us not to worry about dinner or boat reservations... things like that). And when we arrived they continued to be friendly and helpful. Just a nice family renting a few... More

After driving all day from Kenmare and stopping through Dingle, my husband and I were pleased to arrive at our resting place for the night near the Cliffs of Moher. We attempted to see them on our way but it was cold and after 8PM. Our arrangements were made through Exploring Ireland and the directions were accurate as we passed... More

Owners were very pleasant and accommodating. Very comfortable beds. Short walk to pubs and very convenient drive to ferry and Cliffs of Moher walk. Thoroughly enjoyed our breakfasts prepared by Mr. Spencer. Thanks!
