I recently traveled to Ireland with my three sisters and elderly mother staying for three nights at Ballinalacken. Dennis, Declan and Cecilia who run the hotel couldn't have been better sports dealing with five women. The setting is magnificent overlooking the Atlantic, Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands. Our breakfasts and dinners here were the best we had for our entire nine days of travel. The oatmeal and fresh brown bread we all agreed were the best we have ever had. The goat cheese in the salad at dinner was also incredible. We had two rooms, one being a suite with a fireplace and sitting room, but there was so much to do that we had little time to spend there. The house itself has a beautiful sitting room with comfortable chairs for relaxing as well. There was also internet access for checking e-mail, etc. The nearby town of Doolin was very small with a few authentic Irish pubs and good Irish music at night. The Doolin shops being so close to the Aran Islands had a wonderful selection of Irish knits. We all wished we had more time at Ballinalacken to explore the local area more.
