“Warm and welcoming B & B”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

Our stay with Mary Fitzgerald at her beautiful farmhouse in Doolin, Ireland is one of the best memories of our trip. We loved the wonderful peat fires, the delicious dessert with a restoring cup of tea (much needed after a windy trip to the Cliffs of Moher nearby), and the wonderful breakfast. We fell in love with Ireland while we were there - the land and the people - though we feel a special warmth of heart and mind whenever we remember Mary and her home in Doolin. The rooms were lovely, the dining area warm and cozy and the welcome the very best. We hope to return someday!

Room Tip: The rooms were lovely and quiet. The bathroom was very clean and easy to use.

We had the most wonderful time in this b&b July 2013. We were a group of 4 ladies, stayed here for 2 nights and we had 2 rooms. Both rooms were very nice, mine and my sisters was enormous, would have fitted a small family (parents and 2 children) and the price was just right. Breakfast were great and location conveniently to Doolin, we walked to village and back both evenings and had good food in local pub. Host provided us with here own sun lotion, since we had none with us (who expects to need that in Ireland) and there was no store in Doolin. We all talked how we want to stay there again!

Mary was a wonderful hostess. We checked in late around 9:30 had not eaten all day and asked her if there was anywhere we could get something. She said everything stops serving at 9:30 but she ran and called the local restaurant and asked them if they could make us something. They said yes and they reserved a table for us and we had a nice meal. The rooms were clean and the breakfast was very good. Mary is a very sweet lady. Would definitely stay there again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Riverdale Farmhouse. Our hostess, Mary, couldn't have been more accommodating. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was wonderful! As far as we are concerned, this is the only place to stay in Doolin. We hope to return in the near future!

We enjoyed our stay with Mary at her well kept farmhouse B&B. She was most helpful and we had many informative chats. Breakfast could not be beat. The location is a bit out of town which required a car to get to the pub, but the place made up for that one inconvenience. Room was homey and neat. We liked it so much we stayed 2 nights. We would happily recommend her place to anyone staying in cute little Doolin near the Cliffs of Mohr and Burren. A good value!

A completely delightful B&B. We stayed 3 nights at Riverdale Farmhouse in October 2012. When we arrived, Mary's welcome was warm and inviting. We felt right at home. She was truly a gracious proprietor and a sincere delight to chat with each morning and evening sitting in front of the turf fires. Our room was immaculate, very comfortable, quiet, lots of space, comfy bed, great bathroom and power shower. The food was plentiful and delicious, especially the homemade scones. Great location with close proximity to Doolin, the beach, surfing, Cliffs of Moher, ferries to the Aran Island, and The Burren. We were very happy with our choice to stay at Riverdale Farmhouse. Indeed the only bad part about the stay was having to leave.

It was lovely & warm just like our host Mary! We had comfortable beds & delicious breakfasts...Plus got great ideas for what to see in the area & (like the Doolin Cave which we would not have gone to otherwise)...Of course she recomended the Cliffs of Mohor & Arron Island & she was so right when she suggested we drive along the coastal road of the Burren. We had the best of both worlds...wonderful hospitality inside her home & there was breath taking beauty all around.
