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

Hello Joachim, delighted to hear you enjoyed your stay, especially the breakfast and the large family room. When you booked last January we did not have credit card facility at that time which is why i stated clearly that payment was by cash, i have since changed the payment options on booking, 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

My husband and I stayed at Half Door during our first trip to Ireland. Half Door was mentioned in the Rick Staves 2016 book so we took his advice. We're glad we did. We had the king room located on the first floor. Being on the first floor there we could hear the people upstairs coming and going but that's... More

The little Bnb is in the perfect spot for some of the best pubs in Doolin. It is super clean, minimal yet charming and the breakfast is fantastic and cooked to order. Ann is a great host and can recommend a lot to do in the area.

This was our second time in Doolin and our first time at the Half Door. Ann and staff were lovely - so accommodating and friendly. The porridge was delicious and we were even treated to freshly made almond milk! The location is excellent and our room was clean and comfortable. When we return to Doolin we will definitely stay at... More

We stayed at The Half Door the first night of our 10 night Ireland trip. The accommodations were excellent. I liked having the second floor room that had its own separate stairway entrance outside, otherwise it is difficult to get your luggage upstairs from inside the house. Of all the breakfasts I had in Ireland, the omelet that Mary made... More

We had a one night visit to Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher, and stayed in the Half Door B and B. We stayed in the family room, it was spacious, with comfy beds, it suited our needs perfectly. Breakfast was excellent, a good hearty meal before exploring the nearby cliffs of Moher. The evening before we visited the two... More

We stayed at the Half Door B&B during a road trip while visiting family in Ireland. It's location was perfect...right close to McDermott's Pub with great music and great food. The rooms were adorable with everything you needed, breakfast was delish and huge, and the owners were friendly and helpful. We would definitely return!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
