“Good value,close to Doolin”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 14, 2012

We stayed here in August 2012 for one night and found Doonagore farm house to be very clean,comfortable and good value. We paid 32 Euros for the night per person which included a cooked breakfast. Mary, the hostess is very relaxed and friendly and we enjoyed the farm animals. The internet connection was a bit off and on but cant complain as its free. Its probably about a 5-10 minute drive into Doolin,too far to walk without a car,and all the pubs are good according to Mary. I believe a couple of the rooms would have views out to the ocean,and the rest face out to the fields and road, not a bad view but I think looking away from the road would be nicer.Other reviewers have commented about how noisy and lively Doolin village is but we found it fairly quiet on a week night. Maybe it's only the weekends when its like this?

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the ocean

We just returned from our trip to Ireland. We stayed here the last four days of our vacation. The Sweeney Family, proprietors of the Farmhouse, were so welcoming and were an excellent example of true Irish hospitality ! Mary created a very relaxing atmosphere through the decor, breakfast (delicious !!) and her calm response to any question or concern we expressed about our travels. Our bedroom was neat, clean and very spacious !!! Pat treated us to a trail walk along the coast which meandered through his and 37 other farmers' property. (Ask Pat how he advocated for and built this trail!!) The views were breathtaking and the secret treasures we discovered through Pat's guidance were thrilling !! Mary and Pat's sons have a great sense of humor and were very friendly. The farm animals (donkeys, cows, dog and cat) were delightful to watch and just as friendly !!! And extra bonus was the chance to observe "Dusty" the dolphin who greets the ferries and swims with surfers by the pier in Doolin !! Staying at Doonagore was an unforgettable experience and a wonderful ending to our 10 day stay in Ireland.

Mary and Pat's home was so warm and welcoming, and Mary and Pat were so nice and helpful. Upon our arrival, Mary went out of her way to book a boat cruise for us to see the Cliffs of Moher, which was an awesome way to view the Cliffs. The rooms were spacious and clean, and Mary is an excellent cook. Doonagore Farmhouse is practically sitting on the Cliffs of Moher. Wish we could have taken Pat's Cliff Walk, maybe the next time we visit! The view from the room was spectacular, overlooking the coast, with the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. Anyone who stays here will be charmed by this family, and will hate to leave their wonderful home.

Keep coming back for more. . . Have stayed here for the Russell Weekend, at the end of February, for well over a decade, enjoying concerts and set dancing, and great music in the pubs. Have seen Mary's B&B develop and the Sweeney family blossom. Now, along with a 5 star bed and breakfast, with clean, comfortable beds; genial hosts/family; and beautiful surroundings, is the added feature of Pat Sweeney's guided cliff walk from Doolin. On a recent visit at the end of April to the beginning of May 2012 the stunning walk was featured with stories of past events along the Cliffs from Doolin toward the Cliffs of Moher. The mighty Cliffs were viewed, as well, from the sea, on the "Jack B" cruising from the Doolin pier, accompanied by Dusty the Dolphin, over to "The Stack" off the Cliffs of Moher for photo opportunities. Then down under we went--80 meters--to observe the billion year old staligtite at Doolin Cave. Up the street, in Kilfenora, a trad music festival, with singing and dancing at Vaughan's, etc. -- and in the square a free for all with the Kilfenora Ceil Band. The charm of the various flowers poking through the rocky Burren was dazzling. --Now with Shannon Airport going private it is hoped that more opportunities can be had to fly direct in to Shannon and not have to dig out of of some distant city to be able to enjoy the comforts and convenience of County Clare. Thank you Sweeneys for always being there to make each trip home, better than the one before.

Absolutely charming! This was one of the greatest experiences of any B&B I’ve ever stayed it. I was here with my mother on vacation here, and just had the most wonderful time. Mary is the most delightful person, so wonderfully charming and accommodating. Her sons were a delight to spend time with, and her adorable mother Mary Senior, as she was called, simply precious. This is as real as it gets for the experience of a typical Irish family, their house out in the country, gorgeous surroundings.. and Doolin was not too far of a drive at all the next day. Our room was terrific. Mary made us a lovely traditional Irish breakfast, black pudding (blood pudding) and all. It was all terrific! Such a wonderfully sweet family, and I can’t glow enough about them and their lovely home. It was a privilege to be their guest for the night, and would return there without hesitation. I left a bit misty eyed to be entirely truthful, I felt I had become part of the family and quite simply didn't want to leave. A gloriously wonderful stay!

We spent 2 nights at Doonagore Farmhouse recently. The location is fabulous! We were lucky to have 2 relatively nice (although cold!) days in Doolin and we could see all the way to the Aran Islands from our bedroom! It was beautiful! The farmhouse is located very near the Cliffs of Moher and the tiny town of Doolin. Also near by was the Doolin Castle, which isn't much of a castle as it is a tower but it was neat to drive by and you can also see it from the farmhouse. Mary and Pat were very nice and welcoming and Mary cooked a fabulous breakfast! Mary was nice enough to map out a driving route of the Burren for us as well as provide other sight seeing suggestions. The only thing I'd have negative to say is that we didn't sleep that well either night. The first night it was raining and windy and it sounded like it was going to come into our room at any minute. The second night there were people downstairs until 11pm or so and we could hear every word. I can't really fault the owners as it is an older farmhouse so I guess it's a bit excepted. All in all, the place is great, the owners are great, and the location is great. You do have to have a car to get there and around though.

Room Tip: Ask for a room was a sea view.

There are alot of places to stay in the Doolin area. We stayed here and loved it. Mary the hostess was great. Room was good and location was perfect. Few minutes into Doolin for some great food,drinks and music. Few minutes the other way and you are at the Cliffs. I was affraid to stay at a B&B feeling it may be like an extra room in their house but it was not like that at all. The have an extra wing on the side for the B&B. At breakfast Mary had a place set for us. As soon as we came down she had the stove going. Food was very good. Good rate. Rooms were comfy. Walls a little thin. We carry a fan and never worry about noise. She had a guest book we signed that dated back to the 90's full of people. These folks know what they are doing.

Happy all around.

Room Tip: Doolin was slow in late March. A few of the top restaurants were closed for the season. Local pubs o...
