We stayed here for two nights. Ideally located for exploring the beautiful Co. Clare. Lovely clean spacious room with everything you need. Very friendly and helpful hosts. We got a room overlooking the river at the back. Lovely view. Bed was so comfy. Breakfast was delicious on both mornings. Thank you to all at Ardilaun. Carmel T.

If you are interested in exploring the West Coast of Ireland this can be a good base. We stayed four nights to explore the Burren, the Cliffs of Mohar and other local sites. The room was spacious-- with a fantastic view and was very comfortable. Breakfast was good. The fruit for your cereal is canned-- but there is plenty. Try... More

We stayed here our last night in Ireland to have a short trip to the Shannon airport. We had a very nice breakfast which was included in our price. Ask for a room either downstairs and/or not facing the road for a quiet night sleep. This B&B isn't too far from the Cliffs of Moher as well. The fitness room... More

I must start by prefacing that the Irish are some of the most friendly and helpful people I have ever met. Thank you for your warmth and kindness! We stayed here after visiting the Cliffs of Moher and its fairly inland. It was very difficult to find this place even with a GPS. The lady at the hotel was pleasant... More

Economical B&B. The owners were nice, helpful and served a good breakfast. This is a nice place for a nights stopover on your journey. The room could use more electrical outlets and is a little outdated but it was very clean and a great deal for the money.
