A wonderful family run business, with an amazing Irish breakfast. Conveniently located near wonderful pubs and the Cliffs of Moher. The rooms were spacious, bright, and recently remodeled. I would definitely stay here again.

I was a real surprise finding such a Scandinavian atmosphere in one hostel close the Cliffs of Moher (15' driving). The rooms are white and clean, furnished with wooden pieces on a wooden floors, so they looked really Scandinavian, in spite the stone building matched the properly the landscape around. You can choose between standard European or Irish breakfast, and both are quite good. Moreover it's so close to the cliffs of Moher, that you can arrive there before it's jammed with coaches and cars coming from Dublin area, that mostly arrive at midday. The village is tiny but cosy, and it's got a harbor where you can get a cruise to the Aran Island or seeing the Cliffs of Moher from the sea. A real interesting base for visiting that beautiful Irish County.

The Doolin Lodge is just the kind of place you hope for but rarely find. We were assigned a lovely room with a great view of the fields and farm animals just across the street and a glimpse of the ocean in the distance. The breakfasts were delicious and efficiently delivered on each of the 3 days we were in the area. We came and went as we pleased throughout the day and night and enjoyed our walks to the various pubs and shops of the village. We would definitely recommend The Lodge to anyone looking for a comfortable countryside setting and great hospitality.

Good position, not far from the pub and the shops and walking distance to the harbour. The rooms are basic, no fancy, frilly curtains and cushions but all the necessities are there. The rooms are spacious and clean and we were grateful for the laundry service. Good breakfast, pleasant, helpful people. Thankyou

Room Tip: I would imagine all the rooms would have a good view. Our basic room was fine, but there...
