Several years ago, we stayed at Drumcreehy house and had such a wonderful holiday there, that we didn't hesitate to book another stay with the warm hosts of this beautiful B & B. It's not usually our way, but relatives that we offered to treat with a room on us complicated our reservations beyond belief; adding another guest, then another guest, then requesting an additional cot, then removing the additional cot, then saying only two would come, then, after we arrived without them, they called to cancel altogether with less than 24 hours notice, leaving us holding "the bag" so to speak. Bernadette, the host, was way more patient that I was with all the changes and responded to each of these changes with a gracious smile as if it were no big deal. We voluntarily honored their policy regarding cancellations without complaint (it was our fault after all, and they had turned away bookings for us) but Bernadette went out of her way to do everything she could to help the situation. I got to see first hand, how a professionally cheerful and agreeable host handles a difficult customer (yes, we were turned into pains in the butt, outside our control!).

Now about the stay. Drumcreehy is one of the loveliest, best run B & B's we have ever stayed in. The rooms are gorgeous and spotlessly clean. We had the best sleep of our entire stay in their comfortable beds and simply the best showers as well. Our rooms offered beautiful views of the bay as well as the Burren and photos I took from our window, wowed my followers on instagram and Facebook. Drumcreehy house offers a fantastic breakfast spread with a delicious selection of breads, pastries, cereals, teas, and some absolutely knock out fresh flavored yoghurt with an impressive array of fruit and nut garnishes. The cook to order portion of the breakfast was absolutely spot on and our party of five were all happy with our different orders. For our evening meals, Bernadette was very accommodating with a variety of recommendations, though we found ourselves eating far too spontaneously to take advantage of the better restaurants in the area. A great meal in Galway, at Oscar's Seafood Bistro was truly the highlight of our stay and one of the best meals of my life. After a night out at the pubs, our crew of 20-something kids were not content to head straight to bed so the honesty bar at Drumcreehy House offered us a lovely nightcap and some of the most memorable conversations of the entire holiday. Just perfect! I would never stay anywhere else.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful and quiet.

We were down in beautiful Ballyvaughan for the Tour De Burren cycling event. Drumcreehy House is obviously well established and the owners are a credit to their chosen profession.From the welcome, information booklets in the guest pack, to the residents lounge,with endless free teas coffee and honesty bar they strive to make you stay a special one. Great location for touring Clare and Galway. As someone who is so critical of the "full irish" passing as breakfast in the vast majority of hotels the breakfast was a feast of fruits,cereals, breads,cheeses,cold meats as well as freshly cooked options. A fantastic start to the day and a lasting memory of a well run establishment.

Drumcreechy House is an on purpose built (about 10 years ago) guest lodge with about 10 rooms. The rooms are spacious by European standards and invite you to spend time in them they are so comfortable. But, there is also a self serve "honesty" bar with free non-alcoholic drinks and reasonably priced alcohol. There is a quiet and friendly indoor area to enjoy your refreshment or an outdoor patio overlooking the water. What makes this place special is that everything is so perfectly maintained and the hosts are typically Irish welcoming. Stay here it is worth the few extra Euros.

We knew our next stop was the Burren and had been told that Ballyvaughan was the prettiest village. It was late and we didn't want to take chances so took Fodor's advice and called our hosts at Drumcreehy House. They assured us of a room. The weather was cold and rainy and we were tired and hungry. It was the middle of the week, which our hostess advised us meant that only one restaurant in town was open. Luckily it was a very good place. We went to eat and then decided to chance seeing the Dolmen against the advice of the pub waiter because of the high winds and rain. We went anyway. When we returned to our beautiful, large, welcoming room in my favorite color of violet (it was called the "Dog-violet" room), we were thoroughly soaked. Our room was warm, with plush bathrobes and hot radiators to dry our clothes and shoes! Though it is on the main road and our room faces the road (and the water), we didn't hear a sound and slept very well in a lovely kingsized bed. All our things were dry in the morning. We ate in a sun-dappled morning room with cloth table linens and china, where we were treated to a lavish buffet and a menu from which to choose dishes cooked just for us. All together a wonderful stay.

The guest house is in a fantastic location overlooking the sea. It's quiet and only a short drive to the village.
The room was very nice and clean and looked out the front towards the sea giving us a great view of the bay.
Complimentary tea and coffee was provided in the lounge downstairs as well as an 'honesty bar' for alcoholic drinks.
The only small negative was the breakfast. Asking for toast was met with rather puzzled looks and serving cucumber with egg and bacon was a bit strange.
However we would certainly recommend this guest house for anyone visiting the area.
