My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Ballinalacken Castle during our holiday through Ireland. We are return guests and visit often because of the hospitality of the O'Callaghan Family, it's like our home away from home. Cecilia and Declan, the hosts of the Ballinalacken, are always ready to help with attractions to see in the area and making your stay more comfortable. They are always hospitable and friendly. Rooms are comfortable, great for sleeping, and roomy with gorgeous views of the Atlantic and Aran Islands. Breakfast is delicious, there are many choices, and it's very relaxing to sit, enjoy the views over a cup of tea or coffee. We always look forward to dinner here. Michael Foley, their chef, makes delicious meals. We enjoyed the rack of lamb and beef immensely. Service is excellent, they have the best staff, always efficient and friendly. If you'd like a tour of the castle ruins, just ask Declan. It shouldn't be missed. Doolin is about 3 miles down from the hotel if you'd like to hear some traditonal music in one of the pubs. Or if you'd like to retire to the hotel bar after dinner, you can enjoy some great conversation with Denis O'Callaghan, the proprietor. We very highly recommend staying here and look forward to our next visit.
