We have been going to the Doonmore Hotel in Inisbofin since the year of our marriage in 1973.
We always stayed with the Murray family in the Doonmore. It suited our children when they were small. We took our youngest daughter into Inisbofin when she was i year old. When she left school she worked part time as a student in the Doonmore for two years and now has two children of her own. She still goes to the Doonmore on holiday.
As for myself and my wife we get there every year for the excellent food, the rooms, the walks and the very friendly staff. The hotel is now in the capable hands of Andrew Murray and his sister Aileen who have continued the great traditions of welcome and great food. The hotel caters for all, old and young. We first went when we were young and now that we have aged, our own children still go to the Doonmore with their families.
Even though we are now pensioners we will always go back to the most relaxing place in the world. Great home cooked food, special service and attention, friendly people, lovely scenery and walks. Great music. Long may the Doonmore Hotel and Inisbofin continue.

- 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
