Reviewed 20 January 2014

Seemed fine on arrival, however the hosts were horrid the next morning.They didn't tell us the check out time and gave out to us when we were slightly late checking out. The lady, I think her name was Sarah tried to charge us more than the price she told us upon check in, started shouting at us when we refused to pay the extra amount and then threatened to call the police, which we agreed she should do. The whole situation traumatised the children. She was very aggressive. I have never experienced such ignorant treatment from someone in the hospitality sector in my life.
Aside from the incident on check out, the room was dated and basic.
The beds were very uncomfortable and the curtains didn't adequately block the light, but the rooms were clean.
Breakfast was nice with a good selection. The location is fairly remote and the price wasn't great value for money. Definitely will not be returning and would not recommend due to the disgusting attitude of the hosts.

There is a great view of the landscape from the little B&B perched on a little hill top.
We spent one night there during our tour of the Burren and Cliffs of Moher.

Price was excellent. Room for 2 adults and 2 children spacious and clean. Large bathroom.

Sarah and her husband were kind and gave us information about tourist travel. Breakfast was very nice. Our children liked meeting their two sheep and dog. Sarah talked to us about the way-of-life for her and her young family. Gave a nice, individualized touch to our experience.

We would book here again if/when returning to this part of Ireland.

Other guests there were kind and friendly.

The home itself is on the small size, but the room not. House is about 1 mile from "downtown" Lisdoonvarna

We just stayed at the Cannville House and it was outstanding. The service is incredible -- it is run by a couple who is so friendly and helpful and who prepare a lovely breakfast.

Highlights:

- multiple choices for breakfast
- free wi fi in all rooms
- great jumping off point for visits to Doolin, the Burren, and the Aran Islands

Con:

- They only accept cash here (and many restaurants in the town) and the nearest ATM is 20 minutes away

Stayed as a single guest & price was good value as I got a double room & a more than filling breakfast. Sarah & her are lovely people & will really look after you. Highly recommended.
