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. Excellent... More

Upon our arrival we were greeted with the sweetest Irish Welcome from a beautiful young lass named Claire. She immediately confirmed that our choice of visiting this location in Ireland was to be a Grand one. She was absolutely correct. Close to the Cliffs of Moher and a 500,000 year old stalactite we were inspired and educated. It has been... More

Picked this hotel at random on the internet. Was doing Tour de Burren cycling event and needed somewhere to stay. What an inspired choice. This small family run hotel is a fantastic base for any stay in Lisdoonvarna area. Owners and staff are very friendly and pay great attention to the needs of customers. Our twin ensuite room was large... More

The staff are outstanding. The location is excellent and best of all they like dogs. the room was a good size, we had a 48 inch dog crate in the room with lots of space to move around. The value for money was great.
