John and Lynn, the owners could not have been nicer. We stayed only one night but wished we could have stayed longer. Everyone who worked at the hotel and restaurant was so friendly. We ended up eating lunch when we got there as our room wasn't quite ready and we'd just flown in to Shannon from the US that morning... More

We stayed two nights and were always well served by the friendly staff, nothing too much to help with travel advice or ensure our meal was perfect. On top of that, entertainment every night from a young Irish group from 8.00pm until midnight.

We stayed one night and would happily return. The whole experience was excellent and at very reasonable rates. The accommodation was very good, the food good and the service outstanding. We didn't need to go anywhere-else, the Rathbaun had everything we required finishing off with the music which entertained us non-stop for four hours with not a minute wasted. This... More

Just home from a 5 day break which included two nights in Lisdoonvarna. The first night we had a meal in an establishment in the small Square in Lisdoonvarna which could only be described as poor. The second night in the Rathbaun was excellent! Four of us had such a meal and stayed on for the music and the beer!... More

We stayed here for one night here and we had a very pleasant enjoyable experience. John was courteous, made us feel welcome and carried our bags to our room. This is an old Victorian Hotel so some people may find it lacking in elegance, but our room was clean, bed comfortable and the food was excellent. All the young waitresses... More

Myself and my boyfriend stopped in here in the evening to have dinner and enjoy some live music as it did come very highly recommended by the hotel we stayed in. The food was decent, decor simple and the music very pleasant, but we could not fail to notice the way the young staff are treated by the man with... More

Did we ever enjoy our stay here. Everybody was very friendly and helpful. Our room was actually quite large and was clean. We had a late supper at the bar/restaurant downstairs and ended up so happy with that decision. Best fish and chips on our whole trip and authentic Irish music.

Stayed here for a night, rooms are clean and quite big for the size of the place. We ate in the restaurant downstairs, the live music was fantastic, and they served THE best fish & chips I've ever had. Also the owners are super friendly and very helpful if you need anything. Would definitely recommend.
