Stayed at the Harbour View for 2 nights with my fiancee during a quick weekend in the Doolin area. This B&B was very nice - very spacious room with a private bathroom which was also large. It was nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. Lots of extra pillows, warm blankets (it was a cold, rainy weekend), etc.
The breakfast was also very darn good. Not an exact Irish breakfast - but both hot & cold servings (sausage, bacon, egg, cereal, yoghurt, bread, jam, coffee, juice, etc.). The breakfast room was also very large - and although the place seemed full, never an issue with getting breakfast table.
Harbour View is a larger B&B - 8 or more separate rooms. It was obviously built specifically for the task, so it does miss some of the 100 year old cottage charm that others might have.
Only item that could be improved is the location - it is a good mile away from the actual village of Doolin, probably 1.5 from the pubs. By car this is a non-issue as it is 3 min away. However, if you plan to enjoy more than a few pints, walking home is not an option (especially in the rain which we had lots of).
From a quality for price perspective - it was worth the Euros.
