I've read all the reviews, and all I can say is we enjoyed Frank. He has a quirky sense of humor (told us, with a huge smile, that we were late for breakfast, the sun was shining etc. etc.), but we showed up unexpectedly at his door, he gave us a choice of rooms, we slept great and the house and grounds were well maintained. We talked with him for probably an hour that morning and we really liked him.
I think as Americans, we assume that Irish B&B's are hotels. THEY ARE NOT! They are a way for people who live in Ireland, not the richest of countries, to make ends meet. We are in their homes. We are truly guests and as such, should treat them as if we were staying with friends. We should arrive in a timely fashion, or let them know when to expect us. We should be respectful of their time and day. If we are not willing to do so, we should stay in a hotel. Frank, here is my 5. Keep those blue Irish eyes smiling :)
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Moloney House is a 25-year-old purpose built bed and breakfast in the heart of Doolin. The home is situated on a 50-acre beef suckler family farm and overlooks the 500-year-old ruins of Doonmacfelim Castle to the rear of the home across the Aille River. There are six en-suite guestrooms and a comprehensive made-to-order breakfast menu is served every morning. The home is a 5-10 minutes walk from pubs, restaurants and shops. It is only a 5 minute walk to the start of the coastal trail that takes you to the Cliffs of Moher (approximately an 90 minute walk). It is a 20 minute walk to the Doolin Pier where you can take a ferry to the Aran Islands. We hope you enjoy your time in Doolin and your stay at Moloney House! ... more less
