The Kilmurvey House was the most amazing place. The people running the place were really down to earth, friendly and it seemed they would have been willing to do what ever we asked for. Also the room was fantastic. It was really big and you could almost call it a suite. Although the room did not have a TV that... More

This B&B was such a delight. We only stayed here for one night, but it was a lovely experience. The room was very clean, it was large and it had a balcony that overlooked the hiking path to Dun Aengus (one of the main attractions on the island). In terms of location, it wasn't close to the ferry port, but... More

Kilmurvey house is a huge historic mansion made over into a B&B. Our room had a double bed and a single bed (we only needed the double) and a separate sitting area. We also had a balcony with a nice view. It is not very close to the pier (and the rest of the houses and pubs, etc.) but it... More

Although some distance from the port, this B&B is a great place to stay. The husband of the owner will drop you into Kilronan to pick up bicycles so you are free to do all you want. Just two steps from Dun Aoengus. I also found out that it's a great place to eat. Unfortunately we'd skipped dinner and only... More

From the fantastic walk to this B&B from the ferry, from the tea and reception provided by the incomparable Treasa, from the climb up the hill in the rain and Treasa's willingness to dry our clothes in the dryer, to the ride into town from husband Berta, to the fantastic breakfast , this was the magical place that I had...

We stayed on night in Kilmurvey house. It is located on the northern part of Innishmore, just below the old fort Gun Aengus. The main house is 170 years old and has ben in the falily the entire time. It has been well cared for and there is a recent addition with large modern rooms, where we stayed. We slept... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2008

Kilmurvey House has a wonderful location and hosts. The only reason for its 4-point rating is its hotel-like feel that resulted from its recent expansion. Rooms are very clean and large, but lack in decoration, having an ascetic feel that’s not typical of an Irish B&B. Visiting off-season, we were one of the two couples at the House and the... More

The Joyces were very kind to us and did everything they could to make our visit comfortable and enjoyable. We had a great room in the new section and fantastic views. Breakfast was very tasty and generous. The House is in a great location for walking, shopping at a few tiny Aran shops, quiet relaxation, and visiting the old fort.... More

I can not say enough great things about this location. From the balcony in our huge room (separate sitting area, brand new bathroom, tons of space) we had a perfect view of the fort at the top of the hill. The hospitality is first rate, the hosts are friendly to a fault. The breakfast was amazingly good each and every... More

My husband and I stayed at the Kilmurvey House in September, 2006. It was an absolutely delightful stay. We stayed in the new wing and it was just beautiful. The bed was so comfortable, the food was excellent but most important the owners were wonderful. Treasa made us feel as though we were family. The Aran Islands are beautiful -... More
