“Easy going”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 25, 2013

Our room was very clean, and we had very comfortable beds. Very friendly owners, breakfast was available when you were ready in the morning, as opposed to the typical set time. We had no TV in our room and the wi fi signal was very weak. No tea or toiletries available in the rooms, and we found the walls very thin!

This B&B was perfectly adequate. Nicely located between the small musical town of Doolin and the Cliffs of Mohrer. Farmhouse has donkeys, a cat and Daisy the dog to keep kids entertained. Sounds do travel through the house and we could hear the goings on downstairs in the mornings. Breakfast was fried or scrambled eggs with bacon or sausage or a traditional Irish one. Yoghurt and cereal. Simple fare.
Mary was very nice and helpful with directions. We never met Pat-- would have liked to take a walking tour mentioned in other reviews but we didn't know to ask.
They've been doing this for a long time so it was just the basics. No shampoo or soap provided.
Doolin is fun at night -- music started at McDermotts at 9. Reserve a table for dinner near the music if you want to watch or arrive around 8:45 and grab any stool and go up front.

This B&B has a lovely location and the family is very welcoming. The rooms are nice and very clean. The downside is that it was very noisy between the other guests and the family. Compared to the other B&B's we stayed in during our 10 day Ireland trip, we felt this was much less private-- though the family was very friendly, we almost felt like we were intruding on their space at times, with the kids getting ready for school, having their meals, etc.

This is a working farm with a wonderful view. The nearby town of Doolin is charming with several great pubs with music. The B and B is good - very comfortable, not fancy, but a very nice friendly atmosphere. We loved out stay before setting out to the close by Cliffs of Moher.

Beautiful, comfortable, and immaculate accommodations. Beautiful and quiet countryside location, excellent food, and Mary is a treasure. She gave us information about the area and couldn't have been more gracious. We were only there one night and I regret that but then we were trying to pack a lot into just one week in Ireland. We'll definitely come back to the Doonagore Farmhouse B & B and spend more time.

Pat and Mary run a terrific B&B which is also a working farm that's been in Pat's family for generation.When we first arrived we thought we had misplaced our cellphone(it was in the car) and Mary had her son drop in at the last gas station we had been to-nearly 30 minutes away-to see if anyone had turned it in. The highlight of our trip was Pat's Doolin Cliff Walk(see my review of it) which is free for their guests and an absolute must!! The view of Galway Bay and the Aran Islands from the backyard is breathtaking and we all enjoyed their sweet border collie Daisy as well as the donkeys. The rooms were clean, spacious, and comfortable and breakfast was excellent. It is just minutes from the town of Doolin- famous for it's local music and the ferries to the Aran Islands. Highly recommend it and would definitely stay there again.

Great place. Friendly hosts. QUIET. Used as a home base to see the sights in the general area. The main town, Doolin, is a close drive. The Burren, Cliffs all were within minutes away. Excellent breakfast. The rooms and bathrooms are spotless.
