We adored our stay here, we just wish it was longer! Beautiful ocean views and the drive up from Doolin was absolutely stunning. Comfy beds, spacious room and Gill was so welcoming

We loved our stay at this B&B. We got a warm welcome, had a nice room with an amazing sea view, sat outside enjoying the sunshine and (again) the amazing sea view from there as well. The breakfast was excellent.

My wife and I toured Ireland, staying at various B&Bs. Without a doubt, Orchid House was by far the best and nicest B&B we stayed at. The location, the views, the food (OMG The Food), and the owners were fantastic. The house atmosphere was inviting, making you feel like you were coming home at the end of the day. Would return in a heartbeat.

We really enjoyed our unfortunately short stay. The Orchid House is beautifully situated with a view of the Atlantic, comfortable and clean, we were received very well and got good tips for our stay. The breakfast was according to our wishes and very tasty. We recommend staying at the Orchid House. Thank you for the wonderful time.
