Lovely place to stay. Accomodation was very comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. Great range of choice.
Hosts very very friendly, accommodating and able to provide information on local area.
Really enjoyed our stay and would return without hesitation.

When they say on their website that all rooms look out onto the sea they meant it - and the sea is barely 100 metres away! The rooms in Orchid House are tastefully decorated, immaculately clean, and homely. Gill and Paddy are gracious hosts, friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the area. Paddy's lovely nature photos decorate the walls of the house and his knowledge of the Burren's wildlife and flowers makes the visit all the more interesting. Breakfasts are very generous - fresh fruit, all sorts of cereals and beverages, not to mention a full Irish menu that would feed anyone for the day (I asked for smaller portions on the second morning). Ballyvaughan, Doolin, Cliffs of Moher, Ailwee Caves and, of course, the Burren's are all within a short drive. Fanore beach is a good spot for seascape photography. Overall, a superb location and we will be back.

Room Tip: All rooms are excellent.

My compliments and many thanks to Gill and Pat for making our stay a wonderful and lasting experience. The breakfast was a treat, the rooms very tidy and tastefully decorated, the beds "grand altogether". And if you need a bit of advice about the Burren etc.. Just ask Gill and Pat. If you want to have a wonderful stay as a small group (6-8 people or so) don't look any further. Highly recommended!!

Places like this are what Ireland are all about. Gill and Pat welcomed us into their home like we were family. Their home is spotless and very cozy. Our room was simple, clean, and very comfortable. The area is very quiet and welcoming. The views from the property are beautiful. The breakfast was amazing. We will definitely spend more time at the Orchid House on our next trip.

Both Gill and Pat were wonderfully informative and helpful hosts who genuinely seemed interested in our day's events. The location is spectacular, the room was clean, attractive and comfortable (with a view of the Aran Islands!) and the breakfast was superb. We just could not have stayed in a better place.

Our friend booked on our behalf, it was our first trip to Ireland. She said Gill was very friendly and helpful even when she had to write back different times to adjust the booking. And when we got there, we understood what she had meant: lovely hostess, super views, spot-on breakfast. what more is there to say? We will be back and our friend can't wait to go and investigate herself.

My husband and I stayed at Orchid House B&B for one night after sightseeing at the Cliffs of Moher. The B&B is conveniently located about 30 minutes north from the Cliffs and was on our way back to Dublin. The drive is on a narrow road right on the ocean that can be harrowing but has absolutely breathtaking views.

Orchid House B&B is situated right on the road with ocean front views. Gill was an amazing hostess and provided us with some great information about the area. We were trying to make it to Newgrange the following day and she offered to call ahead of time to make sure that we'd be able to buy tickets. The house itself is spotless and beautiful (loved our corner upstairs room) and the breakfast was delicious. I wish that we had allowed more time to explore the Burren area but this just means that we'll need to come back!
