Myself and 20 other friends on a daytrip to Lisdoonvarna called in here for drinks and music. However one of our party needed to take medicine and asked for water . She was offered sparking water which she cannot take with her medicine so asked for tap water and was refused. One of our party had small amount of water... More

I recently went to the Rathbaun even though I said I would never go back again. I was with some friends who persuaded me to go and what a difference a year makes. Smiles all round and yes even from Lynn. The music was brilliant as always and great service. All staff very helpful and friendly as were John and... More

From entry to Rathbaun Hotel to saying goodbye, I was treated so very well. Reasonable prices, immaculate room, great choice of my favorite Barrys Teabags, biscuits and toiletries for use in the shower. Host Lynne, was consistently warm and friendly, and checked I was having a good time as I arrived during the madly wonderful Lisdoonvarna Matchmakers Festival. I especially... More

This hotel is simple, clean, and comfortable for just a few days staying. No fancy things, no frills. The restaurant is nice, just a few options but the food is very good, and the live music is amazing. However the band played until late and we could hear it from your bedroom, I believe after midnight they could stop just... More

Hotel has an inviting appeal from the outside and the staff was very warm and kind. Food was good and reasonably priced. The inside could use some restoration and rooms are old looking and the bed is almost like you slept on the floor firm. Bring earplugs if your going to bed before 11 PM.

We stayed here and my 1st impression of the outside was "this looks nice." It was very simple. The bed was very hard & uncomfortable. I do have to say the family worked hard to make sure dinner was enjoyable. They also played Irish music. The whole place seems a little dated. Food was good.

We mistakenly left a gift for someone at home, and the caretakers at Rathbaun Hotel were so kind to send the gift to our home to ensure it got to us. The staff were just wonderful! Thank you so very much! The Goods

We stayed for one night at the end of June. Rooms were very comfortable, well-sized and clean with good wifi reception. Location is excellent in the centre of the town although this may mean noisy nights if you have a room booked at the front of the hotel. All the staff at the hotel were very friendly and helpful.
