Having had our wedding at Hotel Doolin in August, my husband and I were very happy to return last weekend as ordinary hotel guests for a nice relaxing break. Our weekend package was two nights B & B, a main course each in the bar and a glass each of their own beer, "Dooliner" as well as a pass to the Cliffs of Moher. We weren't able to avail of the Cliffs pass as we had some family birthday celebrations to attend over the weekend but we have been to the Cliffs several times before. We arrived late on Friday night and were warmly welcomed by Sarah. Delicious cupcakes awaited us in our very comfortable room (having stayed in the bridal suite last time it was nice for us to try out one of the standard rooms). The room is a very good size and the bed was very comfortable. Being the off-season for Doolin, the hotel was quiet and our late arrival meant that we didn't visit the bar. We slept soundly. Breakfasts in this hotel are cooked to order and are very good indeed. Just a small quibble - no orange juice either morning and no marmalade - maybe this was due to the fact that we came down for breakfast rather late both mornings (10.00am - breakfast finishes at 10.30). We both had the full Irish the first morning and on the second morning I had eggs benedict and my husband had eggs florentine - delicious! Due to our late arrival on Friday and being out for a family birthday dinner on Saturday we opted to have our included main course at lunchtime Sunday from the carvery in the bar - we both had roast lamb and it was very good. This weekend was, for us, truly about a get away and rest and relaxation - we found both at Hotel Doolin and are already looking forward to our next visit as this hotel will always hold a very special place in our hearts.
