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!

Our host was so lovely and our room was spotless. Newly tiled bathroom with an extra big shower unit. The gardens are great to sit out in and enjoy a coffee. They have taken great care to create a little oasis with a couple of decked areas with chairs. The breakfast was outstanding. She has really gone out of her... More

The guest sitting and breakfast room were a standout at this lovely little bed and breakfast. The breakfast buffet was excellent and complimented by freshly cooked options. Mary, our host, was great and provided all the information we needed for the locality. Our room was large,comfortable, spotlessly clean and had good wifi access - what more can you ask for?... More

We stayed for two nights at this quaint B&B at the end of April. Mary was easy to contact for any questions about booking. The location is ideal for getting in and around the Burren region. I actually would recommend staying in Lisdoonverna as opposed to Doolin because of the ease of getting out and about. There is a wonderful... More

a bit tough to find, need to learn how to use coordinates in GPS before arriving. Impress that breakfast comes with a menu. Such a cute place, like martha stewart owns it. Walkable to restuarants and stores. Not too far from Burren & Cliffs of Moher

The B&B is located 10 min walking distance from the center, and 10 min by car from Moher cliffs. We had a big room, well decorated and clean; the bedding was excellent and we slept very well. The bathroom with toilet, shower and sink was also spacious and very functional. Breakfast with organic food only with a view on the... More

Found this on Trip Advisor, Had good reviews so we took a gamble. The House is set back a little from the road and looked very good from the outside. We had a warm greeting from Mary. The rooms we had were spotless as was the rest of the house. The hosts obviously put great effort into running this B&B.... More
