We've just returned home after a lovely weekend stay with Ursula & Noel & their family at Hawthorn Lodge B&B, Mountshannon. This was our first time staying in East Clare. We had telephoned in advance to advise them we would be on the later side for arrival and it was not a problem. On finally arriving, we were met at... More

The Hawthorn Lodge is the rarest of the rare: an Irish B&B that does everything right. I have traveled extensively in Ireland and have stayed at over 30 different bed and breakfasts, but it is a rarity for me to find a B&B that pays attention to all of the details. One place will have a great room but terrible... More

Oh what a super detailed and very complimentary review, thank you so much for taking the time to write it all down, we really appreciate it! We tend to take things for granted like free WIFI, good quality sheets & bed linen and power showers & assume it's the same every place but it's good to know it's the basic... More

We stayed for one night at Hawthorn Lodge as part of a larger wedding party. The bride and groom had a BBQ for family and friends in a pub in Mountshannon village and Hawthorn Lodge was within walking distance of the village which was perfect for us. The next morning we were blown away by the gorgeous views of the... More

Myself and my partner stayed one night with the Hawthorn Lodge B&B while attending a friend's wedding. We received a warm welcome from Ursula and Noel and were given a charming and spacious bedroom. Along with a plethora of tourist information, we were given a delicious breakfast the following morning, which included a vegetarian and non-dairy option for my partner... More

We stayed in the west of Ireland for a week in May and took day trips to half the island from this fantastic village location on the Shannon river. Everything that Ireland has to offer is right outside the front door; golf, history, culture, dining, music and of course fishing. We had 5 star treatment in my opinion from the... More

We stayed for just one night after staying a week in a local self catering house at the end of a disappointing week for weather and fishing. We were made instantly welcome by Noel and Ursula the hosts at Hawthorn. They are very friendly and helpful and are the type of people who make you feel instantly welcome. The house... More

Hi Neil, Thanks a million for the fantastic review, you were very unlucky with the bad weather and where you were fishing as the White Tailed Eagles in Mountshannon seem to get lots of fish for their young Chick!

Mountshannon is perfectly located to see the sites in western Ireland and the Hawthorn Lodge is a fantastic B&B. The room was spacious (with en suite bath) and could easily accommodate a family of 4-5. The breakfast was "full" Irish, though Ursula is very flexible and can vary based on taste, offering omelets, granola, yogurt, etc. Ursula and Noel are... More

Ken P Birding near Mountshannon.

a very warm place, run with passion and attention to details. very quite, despite being close to the road, but only 1/2 km away from a nice small Irish village. very close to the Lake, but not in the most touristic settlements . thus mantains a clear identity and personality. the best full Irish breakfast that we had in Ireland,...
