Cullinan's Guesthouse
Ranked #5 of 56 Doolin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 1, 2013

I stayed here for one night with my brother and we were very happy with our short stay. The room was bright, clean, spacious and the beds were very comfortable. The landlady was extremely friendly and helpful. This guesthouse is directly opposite the Hotel Doolin and in the centre of Doolin village. The breakfast was delicious and had a great selection of hot foods as well as fresh juices and cereals. I would definitely recommend staying here and would go back happily.

Cullinan's is a lovely place to stay. Clean, quiet and beautiful with a view of a quintessential Irish spring from the dining room, it is across from at least two great pubs with traditional seisuns (Irish Music sessions) every evening and walking distance to more. Cliffs of Moher are just a few miles away as are the Dolmen and other ancient monuments of the Burren.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with view but stay here even if there is no view room available.

We stayed in Doolin, home of trad Irish Music we had been informed. This b&b did not disappoint as the hosts were warm and welcoming, and the room spacious airy, with a lovely view of creek from the window. We stayed here whilst touring including visiting Cliffs of Mohr, just a short drive from here. Ther a three pubs and we lunched in one food was superb, and had dinner in another, across the road, the Restaurant at Cullinans was closed on a Sunday night. The breakfast next morning was delicious and certainly plentiful, on checking out I mentioned about reccommendations for good Irish music, and humbly they pointed out that they had made a CD some twelve years ago, it is fantastic, worth buying and nice to have a memento of time spent there. Lovely quaint, well-priced and certainly worth a visit.

Room Tip: Conveniently located each room would be good, as well as a lovely sitting room, to just relax and ta...

Do not go to Doolin without going to Cullinan's. If you don't stay there, at the very least, make reservations for dinner! The food was phenomenal! I highly enjoyed my stay. My room was bright and airy, with lots of color. It was clean and warm and comfortable. Cullinan's is conveniently located and within walking distance of many pubs and other locations in Doolin. The scenery was lovely with views of water and sunset. I highly recommend staying here. The owners were very friendly and very accommodating.

Found Cullinan's on tripadvisor and grateful we did! Centrally located B&B in the heart of Doolin. We had an upper level room that faced the main roadway. Breakfast was delicious each morning and gave us the necessary energy to trek out to the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher. A short drive to each attraction and away from the massive tour bus crowds.

The setting of this guesthouse is beautiful, with lovely views from all of the windows. This was my first trip to Ireland, and a great first place to stay!

Our bedroom was very large (with two additional beds) and decorated traditionally. The bathroom was a good size too. There was a TV lounge next to our room, which we didn't use but looked welcoming.

We ate in the restaurant in the evening - and the food was fantastic (reservations necessary as there is limited space). The breakfast was also lovely, with a wide choice of various different cooked breakfasts. The staff were very helpful, and were able to answer all of our questions about the area, what to do in the day, etc.

The guesthouse was ideally situated for visiting the local pubs and listening to some traditional music. There was also lots of parking.

I would recommend this guesthouse to friends.

This inn is really nicely done in a beautiful setting. Our room was nicely decorated, but small, and the bathroom was really narrow. No shaving at the sink with the door closed because the space wasn't wide enough. The hosts were great and welcoming and breakfast was really tasty. The breakfast is served in the dining room on the premise which is all glassed and provides nice view from all seats. It is located across the street from Fitzgerlds so dinner or some music later in the evening was right nearby.
