After a day of traveling, resting at the Ballinsheen House was the perfect end to our day. While it was cold and rainy outside, it was nothing but warm and inviting on the inside. Mary and Michael were fantastic hosts, and our one-night stay with them was one of our most restful nights! Quiet and comfortable, we enjoyed a great... More

Excellent, well maintained property with comfortable rooms, great breakfast and wonderful hospitality. Mary is a very rare innkeeper. She gave us lots of attention and good advice about touring. The gardens are great and the town close to the areas we wanted to visit, i.e., the Burren, Clifs of Mohren and the entire west Clare countryside. A great introduction to... More

We stayed at the Ballinsheen House in July, and we couldn't have been more pleased. The breakfast was amazing - best we've had in Ireland. My daughter and I especially liked the yogurt. The best part of the stay, however, is Mary. We had some travel issues on the front end of our trip with airline delays, so I emailed... More

I thought my home was inviting . . . this was the best B&B I stayed in Ireland during my three week stay. The rooms were bright, cheery with attention to details that made you smile and feel like a treasured friend. The gardens are beautiful. Mary was a wonderful host. Breakfast exceptional.

Ballinsheen House was by far the best Bed and Breakfast we stayed in during our 13 day trip to Ireland in late June 2016. Absolutely everything was wonderful. The owners, Michael and Mary, were just as nice as can be and they make a delicious breakfast to boot! The home itself was beautiful and the bedroom we occupied was lovely.... More

Lovely accomodation, amazing breakfast, beautiful garden! All fresh and clean. Everything is well thought through when designing this B&B. Just a ten minutes drive from Doolin with lots of tourist shops, restaurants, seaside walks.... A good choice!
