This location provides access to Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren and one hour along a coastal route into Galway. Irene and Kris have received certification as an Ecotourism site. With 6 rooms, it would be a great site for an extended family traveling together or a small group traveling by van. It is not within walking distance of Lisdoonvarna. The guidebooks do not do Lisdoonvarna justice—it is known for its spas and there are a few excellent restaurants (a brewery with an exceptional restaurant). In Doolin there is a Price-fixed restaurant (which Irene recommended) which in February, 2024, after 10 months in existence, earned a Michelin Star. Irene speaks 4 languages, which is a real advantage for travelers from non-English speaking countries.

This B&B is absolutely wonderful! Very authentic and ecologically inspired! The hosts were outstanding and very friendly. The beds were great, the location was pure Ireland countryside with tons of charm. This was the best breakfast of our B&B stay! The home was Ireland country eclectic and charming. I highly recommend this B&B!

The house is located in a beautiful isolated spot. The family were very warm and welcoming, including the two young boys who ere very nice in sharing their playground with our kids. The breakfast was amazing, and the host knew exactly how much we could manage, though there was more for anyone who wanted it. The views from the breakfast room of the fields around was lovely. The only suggestion I would make is that since the house is an ecotourism amenity, the host could have explained that the electric heater for the bedroom in the evening is the better option over having the central heating on because of the extensive solar panels that supply the house - which I only noticed next day.

Thanks for the very kind words and nice review David. We enjoyed hosting you. Regarding the heating: Using the electric heater in the evening (only if needed of course) is the only option since the central heating is on timers which won't switch on during the evening. Only time when central heating switches on for a short time is during the morning to allow people to heat the bathroom a bit if needed. A high efficiency condensation burner is in place which have saved us already 70% compared to the previous one. A heat pump will be installed in the near future. We really appreciate when guests also think "eco" and sustainability. Thanks for this!
