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

We stayed in Doolin for 3 nights and we were very happy to have stayed at Riverdale B&B. Mary welcomed us with tea, scones and jam & a lovely chat. The room is large and clean. Mary is a treasure, the breakfast menu is varied and delicious. Don't miss this spot.

We stayed at Riverdale as part of a sightseeing holiday and were very pleased with our stay. The rooms were large and clean, the breakfast yummy, and the hospitality simply exceptional. Doolin is such a lovely area to visit and I would gladly stay here again the next time we're in the vicinity.

Mary Fitzgerald is the epitome of Irish hospitality. Meeting her after a day of driving from Dublin was just what we needed. She is witty, sweet and makes a mean cup of tea, not to mention wonderful and filling breakfasts. We mentioned that we would like to ride horses while in Ireland and presto! she was on the phone to... More

A very quiet, homey place to stay, It had easy access to Cliffs of Moher, and Aran Islands. Excellent Irish breakfast. We enjoyed it so much we stayed two nights instead of one. The town is small but with lots to do. Would stay here again.
