Our stay at the Riverdale Farmhouse was very pleasant and we enjoyed chatting with our friendly hostess Mary who was very helpful with directions and suggestions. Our room was basic, but clean and the breakfast was tasty. The location is a bit outside of Doolin, but if you have a car it is not a problem. In fact, Doolin is... More

We loved staying here from the minute we arrived. Mary met us with a lovely afternoon tea and a great friendly chat. The room we had was fantastic, breakfast was fabulous and there was even a fire blazing in the breakfast room even though it is summer it was quite chilly and drizzly outside. The local tips Mary gave us... More

We (two couples) stayed at Riverdale Farmhouse B&B early august 2014. Mary is one of the kindest people You will meet on your travels across Ireland. She took us in and made sure we felt at home. The room was clean and tidy with free wi-fi (slept like babies). The breakfast was also very delicious and huge. The B&B is... More

We loved Riverdale and felt at home there from the moment we arrived. Mary made us feel welcome instantly and gave us spot on recommendations for dinner and music in Doolin. We liked the quiet country lane, close to town, fabulous breakfast and a room that was super clean and very comfy. We could have stayed much longer. Thanks again... More

Our family of four stayed at Riverdale Farmhouse in June. We arrived on a rainy night and were greeted by Mary, the owner. We were rushing to meet a guide at the Burren (which is close by) and Mary was so helpful to lend us an umbrella, and give us directions. She also went far above and beyond in helping... More

We booked this place relatively last minute as we headed to Doolin and had a very pleasant stay. It is somewhat out of town but Doolin is really spread out so going most places requires a short drive in the car rather than walking. Mary was very friendly and helpful. She gave us great advice on where to go to... More

We stayed in four B&B's while in Ireland and Riverview was my favorite! Mary Fitzgerald was absolutely wonderful! Our rooms were beautiful and immaculate with spacious private bath. Mary was so helpful in local information and directions to sites. Our breakfast was delicious -and due to an early departure on the second day, we were going to skip breakfast but... More

I can't say enough good things about Mary and Riverdale Farmhouse. The rooms were wonderful, clean and very comfortable. She was so thoughtful and helpful when we ask for information. She also went above and beyond the call of duty!! My husband left his video camera and a carry-on full of electronics in our room. We didn't discover it until... More

We were unable to book the B&B recommended by friends and found the Riverdale Farmhouse with good reviews and very happy we stayed here. Mary is the best part. She was fun to speak with and we learned a lot about the area from her and she gave us great suggestions for activities on a rainy day. The room was... More

Wonderful stay with Mary at the Riverdale Farmhouse. She is a wonderful hostess. She helped me plan what to see in the area and the food was splendid. The Cliffs are a short drive away which are absolutely spectacular. The Doolin Cave is a must see as well as a trip to one or all of the islands. Riverdale was... More
