    Excellent stay from start to finish.

    Excellent hotel in an excellent location with amazing views of the Burren landscape. Extremely comfortable room and welcoming staff. World class restaurant which lives up to its reputation and an incredibly cosy well stocked bar, perfect for nightcap after dinner.

    Best choice in TheBurren

    Super comfortable homey environment with excellent food. The staff is incredible and the area and well maintained gardens surrounding the hotel were also beautiful. We went with our 5 yr old and she loved it as much as us! Highly recommend. It felt like staying at a very nice family’s home instead of a “hotel”

    This was one of the most quaint place I have ever stayed at and the personal touch of the staff made it so memorable. I will definitely be back in the future.

  • 8,0.Very good

    Property was very charming, grounds were beautiful, staff were very accommodating and the food was outstanding. The room was very dated and the cat presence was annoying and uncomfortable for those of us with allergies. For those reasons, I cannot give this property an excellent review.

  • 6,0.Good

    The property was beautiful. Dinner was very expensive and although unique was not what we would have wanted but didn’t want to drive 30 mins to get there after driving a couple hours in. There was no tv in the room and the over all feel of the place was a bit stuffy. The staff were all nice enough but didn’t it was not a place that felt homey at all. I wouldn’t go back. I think it’s better suited for an older crowd like 60s plus that want a secluded get away that doesn’t have a whole lot going on.
