We stayed in the family room and it was easily the most comfortable room we stayed during our 1 week trip. Ann was a cordial host and breakfast was excellent. I liked that there was a sitting area where we were able to relax and chat with another guest. Also, the location is excellent as it was a very short... More

I stayed only one night here on my recent trip to Ireland. The location is perfect for exploring the Doolin area, and for walking around the town. My single room was large, immaculately clean, and had lovely views from the windows. Breakfast was superb! I hope to return!

Stayed 1 night at the Half Door on a 40th anniversary tour of Ireland with another couple. Anne, our host was gracious and very accommodating. Breakfast was very good. Rooms were comfortable. Very close to Pubs. And especially close to the Cliffs of Moher. Highly recommend

My wife and I stayed here for four nights on our recent trip to Ireland. We came to Doolin because we both like traditional Irish music and were looking for a location with easy access to evening sessions. The Half Door is an excellent location for this. We had a nicely decorated room on the first floor close to the... More

We stayed for 3 nights and found our hosts welcoming, friendly without being intrusive and very accommodating. Breakfast was delicious, vegetarian option Great. Room was very comfortable, spotlessly clean and reasonably sized. Over all good value for money and we will definitely return (if they will have... More

We stayed here for 2 nights at the end of June. Our room was on the second floor and it was perfect. Great shower as well. We liked the location because of the short walk to McDermott's pub. Good food and music there. The breakfast at Half Door was delicious and always gave us a great start to our day.... More

We stayed here (2 adults, 2 kids) for 3 nights in July 2016 as part of our trip along the Wild Atlantic Way. During our vacation we stayed in 3 hotels (all rated 4-star) and one B&B. The half door B&B met our expectations of a good B&B, most specially in this case: - nice and fresh breakfast (we loved... More

We stopped in for an early dinner without a reservation. They were able to take us in. The wine list had good variety. We each had different items from the three course prix fixe menu---all of them outstanding, especially the salmon and seafood chowder. The desserts were done nicely and a fine way to finish the meal. Service was attentive... More

This B&B appears to have been updated and is even more attractive than the photos on its website It is literally a stone's throw from McDermott's pub, up the road a short ways across from the pub. Our room was a very pleasant pine-paneled room upstairs and on that warm day it tended to be a little stuffy. There is... More

We had a delightful stay at Half Door while visiting the Cliffs of Moher and the Burren. We learned of it in Rick Steve's travel book on Ireland. Half Door is located in a quiet area just off Doolin's main road. It was an easy walk to pubs and the Marina. The room was immaculate with lovely decor and the... More

The Half Door B&B is centrally located within seconds walk of restaurants and pubs famous for traditional Irish music. Converted from The Lazy Lobster restaurant to a contemporary and tastefully decorated B&B in 2008, we still offer the same professional high standard of service and our love of good food carries on in our extensive breakfast menu. We offer en-suite double, twin, and triple rooms plus we have a family suite which consists of two separate rooms with an interconnecting door. Our sun filled lounge is the perfect place to relax and unwind. ... more   less
