The host was very welcoming, although we never met in person, and gave directions before we arrived. The host was always available and only a call away which was helpful. Very spacious house overall and perfect for a large group. Well located for touring the general area by car, however the house is a 25 minute walk to Doolin village itself along a fairly narrow road with a lot of buses etc.
Es war Super, zwar etwas Tricky das Haus zu finden, aber alles sehr unkompliziert. große Schöne Zimmer mit eigenem Bad. Super Aussicht. Netter und guter Kontakt! Jederzeit wieder!
Lovely, big, clean house in a scenic area. We arrived late and stayed for a long weekend and never met Olive in person. However, she was always easily available by phone and made it clear that she would drop by if we wanted. As it was we were quite happy to imagine that the place was our own!
A short drive to some lovely seaside villages (we really liked Ballyvaughan), the cliffs of Moher, and the Burren, and a slightly longer drive to further sights and towns.
What a fantastic place! Wonderful house in a terrific location in west Ireland! Doolin is wonderful, the Aran Islands are beautiful, and we all had a great trip!!
Highly, highly recommend a stop at the large and beautiful house!
This home was the perfect location for visiting the cliffs of mohr and taking the ferry to the Aran islands. The home was large and fairly well equipped. The owners could not have been more helpful and friendly. Everything we needed was supplied quickly and the hosts gave us several suggestions for sights to see.
The home was exactly as listed - indeed the views were even better than we expected. The home is not in the middle of Doolin, but is only a 3-4 minute drive away. That's no problem, even when you go into Doolin for trad music (great!) and several pints, as the pubs will call you a cab and you're free to just leave your car overnight.
The owner contacted us several times before we arrived and gave detailed directions for finding the house. The house was open and ready when we arrived, and (by prior arrangement) we called when we got there, and the owner came over within a few minutes to show us around.
The beds were slightly lumpy, though we slept very well. Be sure to bring your own soaps and any tea/coffee/sugar you might need. It's not unusual for holiday cottages to lack such things, so no "stars off" for that, but since it's also common enough for some of that to be ready on arrival, that it's worth mentioning.
That said, the gas station on the corner (45 second walk) is actually a pretty nicely stocked mini-mart with those sorts of things and more (including fresh made meals). We were really happy to find all of that so close when we did stumble in, so consider that a real advantage to this property.
The house was roomy, very quiet, had stunning views, and very comfortably accommodated our party of 10! I would definitely stay there again if visiting Doolin with a large group, and would recommend it to my friends.
Lovely big house in a great location. Suited our needs perfectly. Olive is very helpful and friendly. Great stay

About the Host, Olive
I am running a very successful Bed & Breakfast in Doolin Village for the past 17 years where we live... 3 years ago we opened a restaurant in Doolin , The Riverside Bistro , which was a marvellous success with both locals and visitors... we intend to build on its success in the coming years so all visitors to Doolin can enjoy great affordable food in lovely surroundings.
Why the Owner Chose Doolin:
We are fortunate enough to live in the heart of Doolin village and know that travellers renting Island View will love Doolin too !
