Cappabhaile House is a 18 year old guest accommodation located just outside Ballyvaughan, County Clare on a 12 acre site in the heart of the Burren Region. The Burren is a mountainous terraine in North Clare is famous for it's flowers, rocks and scenery with a fasinating coastline which looks out on Galway Bay and the Aran Islands.
Our guests can relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of country life in a pure rural environment. The only sounds you are likely to hear may be a bird chirping or a cow calling her calf. We provide all the luxury and comfort that you would expect from a modern hotel. We can cater for all budgets and our rooms are large enough to accomodate a whole family.

My husband and I had a fantastic stay at Cappabhaile House. Our room was very spacious and comfortable. The location was perfect for exploring the Burren and taking the Doolin ferry to the Aran Islands. We thoroughly enjoyed the breakfasts - best porridge in Ireland! - and Margaret shared her technique for preparing it. It was difficult to choose among the options offered for breakfast and lovely to linger with a second cup of coffee or tea. The overall atmosphere was warm and friendly - Conor and Margaret provided good suggestions for the day's activities and helped arrange taxi service when we wanted to take a break from driving and have an adult beverage in town with dinner.

This is a lovely little inn with well appointed rooms. I enjoyed all the wildlife photos down the halls and the special decor of the common areas. Our rooms were nice and spacious. There was a bit of confusion with our booking, but Conor figured it out and took great care of us. Loved the area and visiting the Burren!
