Doolin Accomodation

Hello!

We would like to stay RIGHT in the heart of Doolin for a night. Walking distance to all pubs and restaurants is a MUST! Any suggestions? Thank you!

Doolin is really small! Here's a map:

irelands-directory.com/Clare/Doolin/maps.html

Down at Fisherstreet end you have O'Connor's pub, and up at Roadford end you'll find McGann's and McDermott's (both pubs) at Rivervale; they're almost opposite each other.

And in between, at the crossroads where it spells "Doolin" on the map, you'll find Fitzgerald's pub, which is the newest of the 4.

I've stayed at Tir Gan Ean hotel twice; it's at Rivervale and is a modern, small hotel just opposite Cullinan's which is a restaurant with rooms. I haven't seen the rooms at Cullinan's, but the restaurant is very fine indeed; I had a really good meal there last year:

Roadford House is also a restaurant with rooms and has some excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor. It's within short walking distance of McGann's and McDermott's:

I'm not sure if there'll be music in all the pubs in October, but they seem to have an arrangement that at least one of the pubs will have live entertainment. Just pop into the nearest one and ask. Oh - and do take a torch: it's pretty dark walking back from the pubs!

I have stayed in Doolin twice. I stayed at Daly's House B & B both times and was very satisfied. It avails you an easy walk to O'Connor's on Fisher Street. McGann's and McDermott's would be a bit of walk especially at night. I have found O'Connors Pub to be adequate. Spent one evening at McGann's and found their food and service to be superior. Had been out touring one day and stopped at McGann's had a great dinner and listened to some good music and then put the car to bed at Daly's and walked down to O'Connors to finish the night. A flashlight would help...I just used the light from my cell phone.
