“Deserves all the praise”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2007

We booked a room there based on the recommendations from TripAdvisor, although finding their web page wasn't easy. We have not been disappointed, on the contrary, it was possibly the best accomodation we experienced during our stay in Ireland.

It is a lovely, two storied house, with a tremendous view of the ocean and the beginnings of the famous cliffs of Moher. We had a first floor room with exactly such a view - spacious, with comfortable soft bed and adequate bathroom. The rooms were also cleaned every day.

Breakfasts were very good as well - in a dinning room furnished with great taste and allowing the guests to admire the same outstanding view. Selection was very good, from basic English breakfast through some exotic stuff (like hot smoked mackerel) to a very interesting platter of Irish cheese.

The hosts, commanded apparently by a middle-aged lady, were very friendly and helpful. If we ever come back to Doolin we'll definitely stay there again.

This is a top-notch b and b! The view of the cliffs is magnificent , the breakfast was first-class, and the rooms were very comfortable. A reservation is a must, as it was full, even in the off-season.
You probably need to have a car, though, as it is a bit far from shops/pubs in Doolin.

My family stayed at the Atlantic View House for two nights. All of the rooms were clean, cozy and modern plus had stunning views of the Cliffs of Moher. Location was perfect - next door to pitch'n'put and quick drive/short walk to Gus O'Connor Pub. Eileen was a very friendly host and served a great breakfast with many choices. Will definitely stay here again if I return to Doolin.

Fantastic property. Clean, comfortable and very spacious. Stayed here a night on a driving tour around Ireland. Ample parking.

The large room had a very nice view of the Cliffs of Moher in the distance. The beds were very comfortable. Proprietress was always busy but very helpful when we could find her. Breakfast was fantastic -- there were other hot options beyond the usual bacon/sausage and eggs, including grilled fish (I think there was haddock and kippers).

Located in a very scenic area of County Clare. About a mile from the various pubs with live music. Wouldn't recommend trying to find the place without a car, but that said, I noticed a backpackers hostel nearby, Located in the town of Doolin, which is reputed to be the birthplace of Irish music.

We were extremely pleased with our 2 night stay here. The rooms and baths were extremely clean and the room, which overlooked the Cliffs of Moher, was large. The place was full and the hospitality could not have been better. Best breakfast on our trip. Breakfast ran for two hours and there is a large and very pleasant dining room with (once again) a view of the Cliffs of Moher.

In the room, the double bed seemed more like a queen ( I really think it was). Plenty of places to put your bags and unpack. Got a handful of TV channels, but that's not what we were there for.

We were fortunate to have good weather (not good enough to go to the Arans), but first morning we were there, the waves were crashing and everyone was out on the shore taking photos -- it was great.

Location !! You can walk to the pier or into town with ease.

In room conveniences include coffee, tea, bottled water, and you can buy wine there if you wish. They have a nice sitting area with leather couches and chairs.

Parking is ample and if you go to Doolin, you should stay here!!

room with view of the cliffs.
spacious room, tactfully decorated.
wonderful breakfast.
mineral water for free.

Too good to be true!
