I live locally and love this hotel , it's in a great location and a lovely place to bring family and friends when they are visiting . I had visited earlier in the year soon after it had changed hands and reopened , I was very disappointed with the long wait for the food to be served and small food... More

We got B&B deal and decided to travel down to that little village. The hotel was easy to find and had great location with walking distance to the seas, Castle and restaurants. Kinvara village centre is very small packed with B&Bs and restaurants and pubs. Staff in the hotel was friendly and we have some food in the pub Seafood... More

Lovely B&B in village center. A short walk to Kinvarra Bay and restaurants and classic Irish pub- O'Connelly's. Nice clean room. Has elevator which was nice since I had injured myself and some in tour had rather large suitcases. Nice full Irish breakfast too..

Stopped here today for lunch on the way back from the Ailwee caves. What a beautiful place. Lovely tatched roof, nice decor. The waitress was right over with the menus, and when the food came, well, it was just perfect. Tender beef, creamy potatoes, lovely vegetables. Could not recommend this hotel highly enough. Thank you very much merrimans, you made... More

Stayed 1 night in this nice hotel and got a lovely big family room. The décor and cleanliness was excellent. However the breakfast was disappointing. It was self service and very basic. The bacon was overcooked from being left too long in the serving plate and the scrambled eggs cold. It would be better to cook breakfast to order. All... More

We have stayed here now many times and keep coming back to this lovely village. The hotel is ideally located and has everything one needs for a relaxing stay in the Burren. Staff are friendly and efficient and I would recommend it.

Cant understand this Hotel. Located in one of the countries most beautiful villages with a year round business yet fails on the most basic of things. Several of the rooms overlook the rear car park which should be the quietist part of a Hotel yet they locate an outdoor smoaking area under the rooms where late nite bar goers keep... More

My husband and I booked about 6 weeks before we travelled, not knowing anything about the town...what a delight and surprise... The outside may look traditional, which is what we loved, but the inside was modern and tastefully decorated. The township is small and quaint, but just a lovely and restful stopover. We had dinner in the restaurant which was... More
