“lovely and well priced hotel”
Reviewed October 31, 2013

Quite happy with our one night stay here. nobody at the hotel as they close in three days for off season, but breakfast weas good, rooms are clean, well priced, quiet, staff very helpful. Arrived with a big bag of wet clothing from the rain and they let us use their dryers for three hours for free to dry off our stuff. Off to the burren today.

Very comfortable, spotlessly clean rooms, excellent food and friendly and attentive staff. My friends, from America, and I spent a night here on our trip to the Burren and we were all extremely impressed.

While we did not stay here (booked at Gregans Castle Hotel) we had dinner here. Thought the food was outstanding in the pub. My wife thought the seafood chowder was the best, while my fish and chips were also outstanding. We traveled all over Ireland, staying and eating at many 4-5 star places, but this was by far the best food we had.

Lovely little hotel, the staff are friendly, helpful and courteous... The food in the bar was great, there were daily specials too which was nice! The rooms are a tiny bit dated but very clean and exactly what you'd expect from a little guest house in Village... The Village itself is charming too - I'd definitely stay here again!
Breakfast was lovely too - off a menu so go early to avoid the last minute rush...

I was part of a party of four staying for one night. Rooms are spacious. We had reservations for dinner on site and we were not disappointed with the food or service. Breakfast was served in the dining room with a full menu to choose from. Had made arrangements to meet a local author prior to checkout and the staff was very accommodating providing beverages and a place to meet. The staff is very young but well trained, friendly and very accommodating.

We stayed one night at Hyland's during a trek through The Burren. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. We spent a little time in the pub before heading to dinner in nearby Kilcolgan. Unfortunately, it was a very warm night, so not as comfortable up on the top floor as it might have been. We did get to listen to some traditional Irish music coming in through the window from another nearby pub.

Returned to Hylands for two nights after a number of years to find that the hotel is back to its best. Confortable and cozy and a great base for exploring the Burren and North Clare. The staff were very friendly, the room was great and we had a bar meal one night which was very enjoyable. Ballyvaughan is exquisite to visit providing a very relaxing and peaceful environment to escape the treadmill of life!
