Harbour View Bed & Breakfast
Ranked #29 of 56 Doolin B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 24, 2013

My fiancé and I stayed for two nights at Harbour view. We were greeted immediately by Cathy, who spent time telling us about the attractions in Doolin and which pubs to eat at. Our room was right in the front and had a fabulous view. The beds were comfortable and the en suite was quite large. Cathy did tell us that we could walk to the pubs and just taxi back when it was dark, but we decided to drive since it was almost a 3k walk without pedestrian paths. The food that she recommended was excellent. Breakfast was a typical full Irish breakfast, and we definitely got plenty to eat. Getting to the Cliffs and the Burren was easy since we were off a main road. We were not able to get steady wifi in our room, but had no problem in the main lounge. Overall a nice B&B for the value and proximity to the Cliffs - 4.5/5

Harbour View is almost a small hotel with B&B flavour: The house has quite a number of rooms, the hosts are very welcoming and friendly, everything is absolutely spotless. Our double bed room with windows to the front side was bright and tastefully furnished. Plenty of sockets allow quick charging of multiple devices. A hair dryer, water heater, cups and tea were included. The ensuite bathroom was very spacious and clean. The room truly is a place where you can relax for a couple of hours without feeling cramped - very nice if you return from long walks or hikes. The different breakfast options include cereals and the homemade full Irish breakfast is delicious. There is ample parking space in the frontyard, a small grocery store is just around the corner.

You definitely should be able to rely on a car, though: While the house is well situated close to the junction that leads into Doolin and on the road to the Cliffs of Moher, you're 3 to 4 kilometers away from everything. However, mobile and active travelers will find that Harbour View B&B is an excellent base for trips to the cliffs and into the Burren.

Room Tip: Front rooms offer a wonderful view across Doolin and the sea in the distance.

Stayed one night (9/16/2013). The room was very cramped but clean. The bathroom was in need of updating/renovation. It was nothing like photos posted on the website. The location is a fair distance from the village of Doolin where all the action is. We found a much better B n B in the village and relocated there for the next two nights. The proprietors were very friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was excellent.

We always welcome our guests taking the time to review our B&B , but I was really upset when I saw this review. I received a booking from the clients requesting a large double room with view of the ocean for 3 nights which I reserved. On the morning of the arrival the clients arrived before 9pm in the morning. As the other guests had not even come out for breakfast I was unable to give the room reserved by the client. Check in time in all B&Bs is between 2 and 6pm. They asked if I had another room, and I informed them that I had one room but it was my single room. They insisted on taking it. I told them that I was happy to move them across to the large double room they had reserved and they agreed. A little later my husband noticed that the clients had 2 damaged tyres on there car. We spent the next 5 hours making sure that the clients car was fixed for them. To say that the room was small after I told them that it was a single room was a little unfair. We did our best to make the client feel as welcome as possible, offering Tea/coffee/toast and spending most of the day dealing with insurance company's and tyre shops and removal truck.
Kind Regards,
Cathy.

Harbour View was a wonderful place to stay while visited the Cliffs of Moher and Inisheer. Cathy and Jonathon were exceptional hosts, making us feel as if it were our home, too, and offering excellent advice on dining and activities in the area. The bedroom was comfortable and the bathroom spacious. Cathy's homemade breakfasts were a wonderful way to start the day, especially when sitting by the window with its sweeping vistas. Allow yourself time to fully enjoy all the area has to offer.

The Harbour View has a great location and the rooms are spacious and spotless. The bathroom is nicely done with an excellent shower. Cathy is an excellent host and gave us lots of good advice on visiting the Cliffs of Mohr.
The B&B is a little short on parking space, but this is minor. The rooms all have a great view and are very quiet for being located on the main road. We highly recommend this B&B.

Harbour View B&B—Doolin
Located on the main road 4 km north of the Cliffs of Moher and just before the turn off down to the village of Doolin, this facility has spotless and spacious modern rooms and bathrooms with contemporary furnishings. Its elevated location provides the view of the distant ocean as it’s name implies.
The nightly rate was less, and a better value, than others we’d visited across Ireland. As with most B&B’s in Ireland, credit cards are accepted, there is no air-conditioning and the wi-fi is free. There is ample free parking in the courtyard adjacent to the home.
The owner was born and raised, along with her six siblings, in the in the house which was a B&B even then—she and her husband bought the business 9 years ago and concentrated on upgrading the facility to its current high standard.
