Murrays' Doonmore Hotel, the most westerly island hotel in Ireland, was built in 1969 and has been owned and managed by the Murray family ever since. We pride ourselves on our hands on approach to customer service so you will be dealing with a member of the family at most stages of your stay. We care about what we do because it is not just a job, it is our life. Our friendly staff are superbly trained and they know that our raison d'etre is to ensure that every customer, from a child ordering a hot chocolate to a group of adults staying for a week, deserves only the best service possible. Our hotel and bar food is famous for its freshly caught seafood and its consistently high quality and value for money. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and warm. The atmosphere is welcoming, homely and relaxed. It is no accident that we have a large percentage of repeat business stretching back to the early days. The proof of the pudding is in the eating (and we bake all our own!) So come out and visit and experience Murrays' Doonmore Hotel for yourselves. Andrew Murray

Three trips so far - and now on our annual Irish islands list of places to go to. Inisbofin is a small but varied island of the west coast of Ireland. Lots of excellent walk. And Doonmore Hotel is just the place to stay - for location, for comfort, for eating and for a cheerful drink before sleeping. The staff are great. It's a family business - for families - but also for anyone who wants to enjoy the flora, fauna and land and seascapes of the island.

Andrew and his family create a very relaxing environment in the Hotel where every guest feels as if he or she is part of the family and that is what makes it very welcoming. If you add the laid back atmosphere in the bar and restaurant throughout the day and evening and the impromptu traditional music at night then you have the formula for a great stay.

Dear Gretta B, Thank you so much for your review. We are in our 49th year in this business now and the 3rd generation of the Murray family are involved in what is a family business in its fullest sense. We like to be hands on and love the ambience in the place; born out of its history but also helped by our guests. It is one of the delights of working here that we get to meet so many great people. People who appreciate this hotel and all that goes with it. People who, like yourself, add to the friendly atmosphere, the banter and criac that is so much a part of The Doonmore experience. I hope we see you again this year. Regards, Andrew

I and my husband stayed at the Doonmore Hotel for two nights in July 2016 and 2017. We just loved staying at this family run Hotel. Andrew the owner is always on hand to make sure everyone is looked after and to give information about the Hotel and the Island. The Food is just fantastic, with home made brown bread, soups and desserts. It just tastes so good and so reasonably priced. The Hotel has a cosy bar/lounge area to read the papers or just look out at the views during the day while enjoying a coffee/lunch or a pint of the black stuff. In the evenings there is lively trad music which both Islanders and residences enjoy. A great friendly atmosphere. The accommodation is basic but has everything one needs. It’s clean and warm with tea/coffee and toiletries all provided.
