“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 7, 2013

My mother and I had an excellent visit to Daly's. We got lucky enough to stay at Daly's our second night in Doolin-which made us fall in love with this little place even more. After a tiring day we were welcomed by our friendly host and her sidekick cute dog, with a warm Bailey's coffee in the sitting room. The pristine bedroom was decorated beautifully and tastefully, with a modern bathroom. The next morning's breakfast was perfectly presented, with a range of buffet items, followed by a menu breakfast. Of all our seven nights in Ireland, Daly's was our absolute favorite! Highly recommend!

Having stayed in numerous B&B's over the years I would say this was one of the best yet. Susan is a wonderfully warm and welcoming hostess. It was lovely to be greeted with an offer of coffee and biscuits when it was freezing outside! The room was spacious, super clean and the bathroom enormous. Breakfast was a plethora of choice - too much almost. I felt like a kid in a sweetshop. Couldn't recommend it highly enough and it certainly deserves it top ranking on tripadvisor.

My wife and I just finished a beautiful week in western Ireland that included a wonderful night at Daly's House. Susan is an amazing hostess who greeted us warmly with tea and cookies on a chilly (but sunny) day in Doolin. Her B&B is spotlessly clean, well-appointed, and very comfortable. The breakfast was wonderful and filling. The three of us had a chance to talk at length about various things including our children, her family's history as previous owners of O'Conner's pub in Doolin, and general chit-chat. She convinced us to take an afternoon boat cruise to the Cliffs of Moher - and we're glad she did. She knows anything and everything about the area and was delightful to chat with. We also got to meet her granddaughter which was a real treat. Our bedroom had a wonderful view of an older castle-like structure and the rolling hills around Doolin. The public living area is warm and inviting.

When (not if) we come back to Doolin, Susan's B&B will be where we'll stay. Next time I'm hoping for two nights though! Thanks Susan!

We just returned from our week in Ireland. Doolin was the first stop on our trip, and we were so happy with our stay at Daly's House. We arrived very early due to an overnight flight, and Susan arranged an early breakfast for us. It was perfect and delicious. I had the traditional Irish breakfast. The pancakes are also exceptional. She gave us some great ideas for our first day as well. In the afternoon, she made us a wonderful Baily's coffee and sat in the parlor with us and other guests to chat. She and her husband also gave us some great tips for the rest of our trip. The room and bed were comfortable and we had a beautiful view from our window. Overall, I can say that we can't stop saying how much we loved and miss Doolin, and our stay at Daly's House is a big part of that. Highly recommended and we hope to return one day soon!

How fortunate we were that our daughters found Susan Daly and her fabulous B&B during our recent family trip to Ireland. (We were introducing our adult daughters to their heritage). Everything was an eleven on a scale of ten, from the friendly welcome (with a wee Bailey's to go with the coffee in the afternoon) to the marvelous breakfasts each morning. We were going to stay one night and stayed two. Easy decision. We had nice chats with Susan, her husband--the baker of all good things at breakfast, her nephew Rory and the rest of her clan that we met at the B&B or about the town. Susan recommended the fine stables from which my daughter and I rode up into the Burren. She was up on all the musicians slated to play at the various pubs in and around Doolin. And, she had a recommendation for other fine B&Bs on the rest of our itinerary. Just walking about the roads above town where Susan's B&B is located at dusk and at dawn was spectacular, and there's no better place from which to launch excursions to the Aran Islands, the Cliffs of Mor, and the Burren. It helped that we had spectacular weather, but it would have been a wonderful time in the pouring rain. We're just sorry we weren't in town for the big wedding. Thank you again, Susan!

My husband and I had an amazing stay with Susan at Daly's House. We stayed in Doolin our first night, and this set the bar quite high for our stay in Ireland. We were greeted with coffee and biscuits and had a lovely chat with Susan. The B&B is absolutely perfect- comfortable, warm and inviting. Very close to night life, yet quiet. We will absolutely be returning to stay at this great place. Thanks so much Susan! Your hospitality meant a lot to us!

A beautiful and welcoming B&B. We were greeted by the owner on arrival with Irish coffees and a very warm welcome. The rooms were immaculate and the breakfast in the conservatory was delicious with a great view. It was just a short walk to O'Connor's pub and the b&b provided flashlights for the walk home. Take advantage of looking at the night sky on the walk home.
I would definitely recommend staying at this B&B.
