“Perfect b and b in magical village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

We stayed at this story book b and b for two nights and we cant wait to return. Susan and her daughter katie were the perfect hostesses- warm, welcoming and attentive. Suggestions for the area were spot on. Breakfast and afternoon tea were delicious and plentiful. Susan's gardens are gorgeous. Perfect location to access hardy food and local attractions. Thank you for making such a special time in our lives so memorable.

Susan was a grand hostess. A most impressive breakfast spread: better than many luxury hotels in which we have stayed. Beautiful gardens and a perfect location uphill from O'Connor's pub, far enough away to be quiet, but close enough to easily walk to the pub.

It's been well and often said that a trip to Ireland is about the people. Strong, forthright, industrious, energetic, warm and fun loving too -- all characteristics that make a trip to Ireland so very worthwhile, even in the face of sometimes un-vacationlike weather!! Susan Daly and her adorable homey B&B exemplify the best of Ireland almost perfectly!

Every communication with Susan is helpful and positive, wrapped up in pure fun and joy. The thing that you find so amazing about fabulous innkeepers is that they seem to have an almost endless capacity to serve with energy, focus, a caring spirit, sensitivity, and above all, humor. Some travel folks marvel at Ireland's ancient ruins wondering why they're not officially an "Eighth Wonder," but it's many of its people that deserve that solitary esteemed nomination! From the moment we arrived at Daly's House, we were enveloped in a sincere blanket of warmth, humor and fun. Susan has a way of presenting the most normal aspects of hospitality in a manner that makes one filled with joyful anticipation of everything that is to follow, from room accommodations, to meals, and especially to sharing her town with you, as only she could -- having a rich family history in Doolin going back many generations.

A good innkeeper makes more than just a great Full Irish Breakfast, they make you feel right at home. A great one makes you feel part of the family forever, and all within just part of a day's time! Susan has this gift. It took her minutes to figure out that we were traveling with our four grown kids on our 30th wedding anniversary. No sooner did she garner this nugget of family trivia, than she had hugged all of us and filled our glasses with champagne and filled the parlor with toasts, laughs, and pearls of Irish wisdom ! But for her, it was not premeditated or contrived at all. It's just the way she is.

And by the time we said goodbye, but not farewell, to Doolin, we felt not just part of the Daly clan, but we felt like extended family of all of Doolin. And we packed into our Micro-Van laughing and crying all the way down the road toward County Kerry.

Susan runs a great place and is an absolute delight. The breakfast is great. We slept in the next morning as we had been to a friend's wedding but Susan had some fresh baked scones and tea/coffee on hand for us. No complaints in the slightest, and do not hesitate for a moment recommending it.

We stayed 3 nights at Daly's to end our trip in Ireland. I loved Susan from the moment I met her. She is so lively and obviously loves what she does. Our room was very nice and had the most comfortable bed we slept on during our trip. Breakfast was delicious -- all the regulars plus baileys-spiked porridge and french toast! Susan had many suggestions of nearby attractions and even offered to book reservations for tours & dinner. Walking distance to many pubs and restaurants, the pier, and the cliffs of moher walk. Would absolutely stay there again!

Well join the crowds of people who appreciate this lady and her place. Her enthusiasm, care, and real interest makes you feel like you are staying with a best friend or favorite Aunt. The place is wonderful too. Be sure to go to the silver strand beach, which is a drive, but worth it.
