In terms of comfort we found the Riverfield House to be quite nice. Our triple was comfy (2 queen beds, not doubles), spacious enough, and quiet. At 90 Euro for a triple it was 15 less than anything the Tourist Information office across the street could get, and the woman working there said we'd never find anything less than 105 in Doolin. Ten minutes later we had, right across the street. Breakfast was the typical Irish breakfast with some cereal and juice. The proprietor let us use her clothesline to hang some of our stuff on (Ireland doesn't have much in the way of self-serve laundries so you gotta hand wash when you can). She was excellent with info about the area, the Aran Islands communities, Doolin's music scene, and it happened that we were there on the eve of St. John the Apostle's Day when the Doolinites light up huge bonfires that can be seen out on the islands, and the Aranites likewise to be seen in Doolin. She explained the history of that, the impact of The Famine on the area and the Arans, and gave us a delightful route up to The Burren that led to unsurpassed views of the nearest of the Arans and beautiful views of the coastline the next day. At night crazy two-storey fires were burning away outside the pubs with a couple hundred people drinking and carousing in honor of the Apostle (and in combination with some much more ancient pagan ritual centered on the solstice), while music cranked away inside. I think the proprietor's sense of humor may be lost on some people, and at heart I believe she is actually quite kind. She has a sarcasm that, even when it was aimed at me, was clearly not meant to be cruel. I'm a bit sarcastic meeself, so I don't mind it and try not to be too touchy about that sort of thing. And regarding the sign in the breakfast room about some guests bringing joy by leaving (the first part... also on her sign, is that "some guests bring joy when they enter"), that was the second time I'd noticed a sign like that. The other was at a different B&B. I didn't take it personally either time. Perhaps it's a wee bit of the Irish bein' Irish, i.e., truthful, that brings offense. Also, this woman and her family don't just run the Riverfield House, they live there. It's the west coast of Ireland, a country famous for rain. I'm not sure I'd want people traipsing into my house with muddy boots. The entranceway to the building has a small atrium, let's call it a mud room, that is meant to house a person's muddy footwear in the case of sloppiness outside. Personally I don't see a problem with that. I placed my own boots there (nobody stole them!). Travel to East, Southeast, or Southwest Asia, or Eastern Europe, you don't wear shoes into a person's house in those places. No biggie. We don't wear 'em in our house and neither do our guests. There are rules in people's houses. And all-in-all I would say she was smitten with my wife and daughter, and kinda liked me as well. The Riverfield is perfectly located in walking distance between the two parts of Doolin (you gotta go to Doolin to understand the strange make up of the town/s known as "Doolin.") Free WiFi throughout.
