“Great hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

We came here for two days in September 2013 and stayed for four. Stunning views, comfortable rooms, endless hot water for long baths after hiking the Burren all day. Beautiful old fashioned dining room and bar with wooden vaulted ceilings. Top quality breakfast. Great base for music in Doolin, exploring Burren, Aran island, county Clare in general. Family owned and run. Highly recommend it.

This was my second stay at the Aran View. It was great. The four of us really enjoyed our time in Doolin and our visit to the Aran Isles. It was topped off my the frindliness and support of the owners of the Aran View!
Skip Galway and stay in Doolin for your visit to the Aran Isles. If you do try to stay at the aran View House hotel.

We stayed here for one night - the room was nice and we enjoyed the breakfast. It is a little farther out of town but that wasn't a big deal to us as we were driving. Food wise there is a restaurant and bar on the property but we found it to be out of our price range - we took a short drive into town and ate at one of the pubs. Overall a nice stay.

The Aran View is a fine place to stay. It was clean, the staff was pleasant, the view was good and the breakfast was plentiful. Decor is a throwback to the 1970's, and the location is a little further out of Doolin than I would have liked if I wanted to walk back after enjoying the local music.

This is a well run B&B style hotel with the best ocean view in the Doolin area. It was a perfect hub for our Burren adventures. Plenty of free parking and a small, but beautiful bar that stays open as late as you. Free breakfast. Wifi only in public.

Definitely my favorite part of my 2 week trip was my stay at this hotel. Theresa , her daughter Sharon, Mikaella (sp?) are lovely souls. We stayed on the third floor in the very front room with a breathtaking view of the ocean, cows, sheep, and the Aran islands. I could have sat in that chair gazing out all day. The bed was very comfy, the shower was fabulous and after we got the hang of the Irish flushing technique of the toilet, we were good to go. ( no pun intended, Ha!) We even had them launder our clothes as we were a week into our trip and in dire need of clean clothes.They had them done by the time we got back in the evening beautifully folded and sparkling clean.
The breakfasts were fabulous every morning and Mikaella was always there for whatever you may need including help with your plans for the day. She'd always inquire, "what will you do today" . So cute and sweet.
On a Sunday morning at check out, we had problems for a brief moment with the credit card and Sharon left church to come back and sort it out and even raced us to the bus station so we didn't miss the last bus out. I could have hugged her. I wouldn't change a thing about this place. I love the decor, it made me feel that I was truly in Ireland. Please don't remodel or change the enchanting feel of this gem. We'll be back.... if only in our dreams.

A warm irish welcome and a really cosy place to stay with great food and plenty to drink. Nothing was too much bother for any odf the staff. the only down, if this is one, is that its looking a little tired in the bedrooms and hallways. there are some great views and they are always open to a deal and a bit of negotiation. My partner and I spent a great 3 nights here. I would stay here again when next in Doolin.

Room Tip: Ask for a front bedroom
