Lovely short stay on Inishbofin, the staff at Doonmore Hotel made the most of the difficult situation due to the covid regulations. I felt safe at all times. The food was excellent, my daughter who is vegan (but not a fussy one) had more choice and was better looked after than in much bigger hotels. I have been to Inishbofin for many decades and this was the first time I stayed in the Doonmore, I hope to be back soon. I missed the music which was lost due to the new regulations. Wonderful staff and hotel in one of the most beautiful places in the world.
Visited Inishbofin in late August for 3 nights and stayed in Doonmore Hotel. The Hotel is a family run hotel and all staff were friendly, professional and could not be more helpful. The food for breakfast and dinner was excellent and good value. When we arrived on the ferry from Cleggan, our bags were collected and dropped to the hotel and that excellent service continued for the time we spent there. The hotel is located approx. 10 minutes walk from the pier. The hotel is not a 5 star based on plush furniture or extravagant bedrooms etc. but is 5 star for service, friendliness, location and the people. Andrew and his colleagues just know how to make you feel at home and enjoy yourself while on the island.
We stayed in the hotel in September and emailed ahead advising that we are vegan. We arrived off the ferry on a gorgeous day and our bags were taken to the hotel for us and we happily strolled to the hotel at our leisure (transfer was offered). We were ready for lunch and ate at the outside tables with a local chicken who recognised that we were vegan and felt safe. We were checked in at 3 after a lovely walk around the west of the island which was just stunning. We had booked dinner and had the two vegan options which were excellent. On the following day the chef, Marius, made us two new vegan meals which were first class. We had four to choose from but went with the specially prepared cauliflower steaks with pesto and butternut risotto. Fabulous food and the staff made us feel…
This was our 4th time to stay at Doonmore. Andrew and Donna, along with all of their staff, just couldn't do enough for us, especially in these difficult times. We were lucky to have had a sea-view room, which was fantastic. The food is excellent. Location is perfect for the great walks the island has to offer. Will definitely be returning in 2021
Fabulous island / weather /food /location and people, cannot find fault with anything. beautiful walk along the sea to the hotel and there’s a lovely beach just past the hotel. the food was beautiful in the hotel restaurant, we requested the sun porch so had amazing views of the sea and the setting sun. All staff were friendly and everyone compliant with Covid regulations. I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again.
