“Doonmore is a must-stay”
Reviewed August 26, 2012 via mobile

Just had a great trip to Inishbofin.
The Craig, hospitality and food are great.
You will lose track of time while exploring this wonderful island.
Murrays Doonmore hotel is the perfect place to have the island experience.

Travelling with my mother and aunty, we arrived with no notice. The welcome and hospitality could not be faulted. A great night in the bar with live music - we could only last till 2.30am.
Can't wait to return.

Murray's hotel is the only place to stay while visiting Beautiful Inishbofin in my opinion. My family have being visiting Bofin since 1976 & could not recommend it highly enough. Murray's is a wonderful family run hotel. From the minute you are greeted by Andrew & Aileen at the pier to the moment Simon, Luke or any other of the brilliant staff serve you, you are made to feel part of the family. The food is out of this world whether it be in the bar which is always packed to the rafters or the restaurant you will find yourself thoroughly satifisied. Make sure to also take in many of the brilliant music sessions while there too. We have brought many friends through the years & they have always returned to stay in Murray's. Well done guys, keep up the good work.

My husband and I returned to Inisbofin after 21 years and once again stayed at Murray's. We were interested to see if the island and the hospitality were as wonderful as the memories we had and we weren't disappointed. Despite the weather, we had a fabulous short stay and like other reviewers were loath to leave. Murray's was wonderful- a home from home with fabulous food and even better hospitality. I am almost afraid to be too effusive in my praise lest there be no availability next time I try to book as we are already planning a return trip.

doonmore hotel is a lovely place with a very traditional feel to it. the staff in the bar, hotel , and restaurant were all very friendly and helpful, nice smiley faces etc. the food was great, nice big irish breakfast, and tasty dinners with excellent deserts. the rooms were comfy, cosy, and the rear part of the hotel where our room was, was quiet on a night. we concked out early with all the walking on a beutiful, peaceful, and remote island. would reccomend the hotel and island to anyone wanting a get away from it all break.

Best place to stay on the best Island off of the wild Irish Atlantic coast.....so may people stop in Galway, Clifden, Westport etc but well worth skidaddling over for a night...perfect mix of musical madness and magestic isolated scenery, Murrays in fairness is as laid back and welcoming a spot as ever I've had milky Guinness, well recommended...

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Murrays' Doonmore Hotel, the most westerly island hotel in Ireland, was built in 1969 and has been owned and managed by the Murray family ever since. We pride ourselves on our hands on approach to customer service so you will be dealing with a member of the family at most stages of your stay. We care about what we do because it is not just a job, it is our life. Our friendly staff are superbly trained and they know that our raison d'etre is to ensure that every customer, from a child ordering a hot chocolate to a group of adults staying for a week, deserves only the best service possible. Our hotel and bar food is famous for its freshly caught seafood and its consistently high quality and value for money. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and warm. The atmosphere is welcoming, homely and relaxed. It is no accident that we have a large percentage of repeat business stretching back to the early days. The proof of the pudding is in the eating (and we bake all our own!) So come out and visit and experience Murrays' Doonmore Hotel for yourselves. Andrew Murray ... more   less
