This year we took our SECOND driving vacation through parts of Ireland. Our first was in 2003, and back then, our next-to-last night was at the Atantic Sunset in Doolin. We liked it so much back then, that we went searching for it specifically during THIS trip, in 2013. It made such an impression on us ten years ago, that we remembered exactly what it looked like, and generally what the area looked like where it's situated, and we found it with almost no trouble at all. Back in 2003, we stayed one night. This time, we had five nights to go in Ireland, when we arrived. We didn't have any firm plans, so booked only the first of those five nights. Bea (our hostess) is so warm and friendly and helpful, and the B&B is charming as all heck!! (Someone in that family is nutty for antiques, and the dining room, which is chock-full of every type of antique imaginable, is a sight to behold......what fun to wander around this room checking everything out!!) This B&B is located perfectly for our needs. We love Doolin, and the local Irish music found in several of the pubs there, including O'Connors and McDermotts. And it's also very convenient to an amazing area of Ireland called The Burren (if you don't have this area on your itinerary.....add it now!! It's completely different from anything you've ever see or anywhere you've ever been, and it's just fascinating beyond words!!) Bea is a wonderful cook, and serves up the most wonderful variety of Irish breakfasts. (She also has a pad of the best maps of the local area we've seen so far!!) The price for the rooms is very reasonable, and the rooms are clean and comfortable, and the hot water is plentiful. If there's a complaint (and this really isn't one......it's more of a side note....) we had the two rooms on the ground floor, and the sounds of people coming and going through the front door and up and down the stairs to the second floor were just slightly distracting.....but hardly a reason not to stay at this charming, well-located, well-run B&B.!! Thanks, Bea......we'll be back!!
