“Great Stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

We traveled as a family and had 18 adults in Frank's place here in Doolin. Feeding breakfast to all those folks simultaneously was a challenge that Frank was able to accommodate two morning's in a row. The location is the best in town and Frank is a real nice gentleman. We had stayed at Doonmacfelim back in 2006 and returned - we shall do the same the next time we visit Doolin!!

Our group filled the house and Frank did a great job of getting us settled in quickly and on our way into Doolin. Room was comfortable, bath a little small but functional. Breakfast was superb..Frank does it all. Doonmacfellin is close to town, a quick walk to O'Connor's pub and shops. Its also close enough to walk to the pier for the boats out to the Aran Islands. I would recommend this place for groups and families, we enjoyed our stay and getting to know the owner Frank.

Disappointing stay because of an unresolved problem with a malfunctioning toilet.
Reported the problem shortly after we arrived in the afternoon. The owner's son, who was hosting that day, looked at the toilet more than once at my insistence but only in late afternnon suggested he would call his father. My comments about moving to another room were evaded. We were told Frank would be by that evening to look at the toilet. He never came. The next morning Frank was vague and dismissive about the issue. A fully functioning toilet should be a basic expectation when paying for an ensuite room. The lack of concern on the part of the owners was extremely frustrating and very unexpected. Would not stay there again.

Warm, clean , comfotable! Frank is always a pleasent host. This is a great place to stay while visiting the beautiful town of Doolin as it is very conviently located for the cliffs, shopping, and pubs (walking distance to Gus O'Connors), Choice of breakfast is a nice touch.

Nice B&B, clean, comfortable rooms. Superb location for walking to the pubs and the parade. Doolin is a great little village. I've stayed here before and will again. Our host Frank is always entertaining!

Doonmacfelim was a nice b and b. It's in a good location, close to all Doolin has to offer. We were the only guests the night we were there. Room was sufficient. It was a front room, facing the road. Bed was comfortable. The vanity in the bedroom was a bit small. If I sat on the bench with it, the mirror was too low for me to see my face in, and I am only 5' 3" tall! Shower was ok. Breakfast was good. Ate at O'Connell's Pub down the road as well. Good food there. Most of the shops in town were not yet open. Frank did give us good direction on departure, for the Burren.

Stayed here overnight as a family. The family rooms were great as had dividing doors to offer privacy. The twin share had a bathroom while the double had sink only. Brilliant place to stay if you are exploring the Burren and Doolin. If you can, stay on a Sunday night, and make sure you visit O'Connors where you will be treated to some fantastic traditional irish music and singing. Frank recommended the pub and we weren't disappointed with the entertainment or the food (best meal we had on our UK/Ireland tour). Only downside would be bathroom a little mouldy and milk out of date. Frank very friendly without being overimposing. Would definitely go back.
