“Lovely stay at this cozy, endearing B&B”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2011

My mom and I decided to check out the charming town of Doolin, known for its traditional Irish music and close proximity to the Cliffs of Moher. We stumbled upon the Toomullin House B&B in our search for a place to stay. We were extremely happy with our choice as my mom and I both agreed we had the best night's sleep of the whole trip at this place. The beds were extremely comfortable! Upon first arriving at the Toomullin House, we were cheerfully greeted by our host, Chris, who was happy to show us to our room and give us recommendations for dinner and a pub to go to where we could listen to traditional Irish music. Chris was extremely welcoming and helpful and made us feel at home. We enjoyed our breakfast in the morning as well and were sad to leave. The only complaint we had was the plumbing. We had problems getting the toilet to flush two times in a row. We had to let the toilet sit for at least 20 or 30 minutes before it would flush again. This wasn't a huge problem and didn't really affect the enjoyment of our visit. The stairs were also a little steep for my mom as she has arthritis in her knees so you may want to request a room on the main level if the stairs would be an issue for you. I would highly recommend this adorable B&B if you're looking for a relaxing, restful stay in the delightful town of Doolin.

Great Irish welcome we were made to feel at home immediately. Toomullin is two minutes outside Doolin, the rooms were comfortable and spotless with all the amenities you could need .Breakfast was excellent with lovely brown bread. Olive and Chris are great hosts and really make you feel at home. The atmosphere in their home is relaxing and you come away from Doolin feeling revived and ready to return to the big smoke. Thank you both for a lovely experience.

we truly enjoyed staying at Toomullin House, it was friendly, immaculately clean and the beds were awesome would go back anytime, indeed we are hoping to visit again next year. We found Toomullin very convenient for sightseeing in Lahinch and the cliffs of Mohar and the local village of Doolin is fantastic. Loved meeting Olive and Chris

My family and I (6 adults in all) spent two weeks in Doolin at the Wishing Well and loved every minute of it. Despite the unusually cold and icy weather, we had a great time touring the country, taking walks, and meeting the wonderful people of Doolin. The house is beautiful, spacious, and has gorgeous views of Doolin, the Aran Islands and the Burren. Olive and Chris were very accommodating and friendly and provided us with a great experience. For the wonderful house and beautiful location, this is a great holiday rental (a good deal too!) , especially for those who enjoy a relaxing vacation touring and spending time with family.

Doolin was to be the highlight of of Irish visit, we were told by many it was the place to go to sample Traditional Irish Music and it lived up to expectations. Our 2 night stay at Toomuliin was great, good clean and well laid out rooms and shower rooms, breakfast was excellent and it is also a great base for touring and seeing the Cliffs of Mohers. The live music is just down the road from the B&B. One of our party had taken a nasty fall while walking earlier in the day and the lady of the house was genuine in her concern and offered to arrange for xray if necessary. Highly recommended and would return

Chris warmly welcomed us and showed us our double ensuite room. The bedrooms are clean and have all the facilities you need. Toomullin B&B it’s a very cozy place, Olive and Chris are fantastic hosts, it feels like to be at home. It was also close to McDermotts which had great Irish music every night.
We definitely reccommend Tollomin B&B to anyone looking to stay in Doolin.
And we want to say to Olive and Chris "THANK YOU VERY MUCH,we enjoyed your home".

After stopping and seeing the cliffs of moher, we had just a short drive to the great little town of Doolin. Wonderful, clean and friendly B&B. Great advice about the pubs and great advice about our drive the next day around the Burren on the way to Galway. A couple of minutes walk to the pubs...we went to McDermotts, good food, great music and a full house even on a Monday night. Loved our whole stay in Doolin.
