Olive was more than accommodating with any questions I had prior to booking, we met Christy at the house who gave us advice on where to go and what to see and was more than helpful. The location of the house is perfect, walking distance to local amenities etc. The room was bright , spotless and comfortable. We got 4 choices for breakfast, all in all a perfect trip, we will definitely be back.
Nice welcome, helped us find the place. Room ideal, bathroom very clean. Doolin is very nice.
Everything was great and Doolin and the Cliffs of Moher are wonderful! Great music!
Cosy B&B in Doolin, within walking distance to some great pubs with music on each night. Chris met us on arrival and was very friendly and helpful, he advised us on a route to take to get the most out of our trip to the burren. We enjoyed our time here a lot. Thanks very much!
Olive wasn't there at our arrival. It was Rita, her sister, that took care of us. She was very kind with us, she picked us at the bus station and she offered us lift because we didn't had a car. The room is perfect, you have you're own bathroom and the bed is really confortable!
Had a great say in Doolin. The cottage is very sweet and Rita took good care of us - even though our stay there was short. Would definitely stay again!
The room itself was a wonderful respite! We looked forward to going "home" after our long day of hiking the cliffs. Comfy bed, plenty of hot water, and even a heater in the bathroom. Rita (Olive's sister) was an excellent hostess! She gave us very good directions and great suggestions. When we told her we wanted to dry some clothes, she brought us a hanging rack. The only drawback was not being able to get internet in our side of the cottage (although Rita offered the use of her drawing room if we really needed internet). Overall, an excellent experience!

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.
