“Amazing B&B - well worth it!”
Reviewed 18 March 2014

My sister and I stayed at Daly's last week (mid-March) and can only say positive things. We were greeted at the door (8pm) with Irish coffees and a warm smile from Susan, the owner. When I first wrote Susan, she responded promptly with all the necessary information. We both cannot eat gluten (Susan asked if we had any food restrictions before we arrived), and were very excited to have gluten-free biscuits in our room every morning. The breakfasts were also modified to fit our dietary restrictions (GF french toast? YES please).

We were given so many great recommendations by Susan and her daughter. There is a map and directions in each room highlighting different routes that are suggested. We took The Burren route and loved every second of it.

Sending so much gratitude to Susan. You have an outstanding B&B and made our trip very enjoyable. I look forward to returning in the future!!

Daly's house was great. It really has that "homey" feeling ! Wonderful sitting area with a cozy fire. Susan is amazing and has great recommendations. Highly recommend the Doolin Cliff Walks with Pat if you are able ! Thanks Susan for a great stay !

My girlfriend and I stayed here in mid-February after a huge storm and we really lucked out with the weather. It was sunny when we got there, and Susan welcomed us inside to a roaring fire and two hot Bailey's and coffees. We went to the cliffs and spent the entire day there, thanks to the weather. The room we had was big with a massive and clean bathroom, tea, big television- everything one could expect from a B&B. The breakfast was outstanding (full Irish for myself) and the table was flanked with every kind of breakfast food available. I'd highly recommend this place to anyone traveling to Doolin.

We loved Daly's House so much last summer that we are planning another trip there this summer. Susan Daly is a wonderful host and is a fount of information about the area. The rooms are clean, comfortable and quiet. I heartily recommend it to anyone wanting to explore the Cliffs of Moher.

B&B's are everywhere in Ireland, and Doolin is no exception. Many serve a nice breakfast, are clean and have a nice pillow to lay your head on. What makes a good B&B great is the person or people running it. There are many lovely people in Ireland, but Susan Daly is the loveliest! The B&B itself is of high quality - such comfortable rooms that are so nicely decorated, fantastic breakfasts, convivial atmosphere. But Susan is what makes it great. She's got a crackling personality, is genuinely interested in people, and wants to ensure your good time. We've been there the past two years for the Russell music weekend in February (highly recommend!) and have had a wonderful time, and am genuinely sad we can't make it to Susan's - but we will no doubt be back to Daly's.

Myself and my two regular travelling companions since returning to Ireland, James and Ben, thought we'd take advantage of the unusually mild month of October last, and decided on a trip to the rugged and wild west coast of county Clare.

After the effortless (if boring) and quick drive down the M7, we arrived at the Cliffs of Moher late-ish on Friday evening, just in time to witness the sun set below the great Atlantic horizon. There are few sights as spectacular and emotive for hobby-nationalist Irishmen as a mid-Autumn Atlantic sunset!

Like many domestic weekend breaks I undertake, this one was poorly planned. We hadn't even begun to think about where to stay. A quick perusal of Tripadvisor revealed nearby Doolin, a village richly endowed with a variety of accommodations.

Hostel? Nah. Though there were a number of well-reviewed places on offer, weren't in the mood for sharing with potential snorers.

Hotel? No. There is something inauthentic about a weekend trip west that involves staying in a hotel.

Having travelled the globe extensively, I can safely say Irish Bed & Breakfasts are the best in the world in terms of consistency, value and hospitality. If you love anonymity, then maybe you better stick with a Hotel. But for me, there is no better way to get an insight into the community you are visiting than if you stay in a B&B.

We called the top of the Tripadvisor list, and were greeted by the proprietor of Daly's House, the wonderful Susan Daly. Were there some beds available for three well-meaning Jackeens? There were! ... at least for the night.

I have rarely encountered a host as entertaining and charming as Susan Daly. Upon arrival, we were sat down with a cup of tea and biscuits, after which Susan regaled us with her vast knowledge and insights into the history, culture, music and natural geography (as well as the complex geo-politics) of the region, all delivered in her rich north Clare lilt.

We also met and were entertained by the noble George, the Daly family hound.

After a night in O'Connors (just 2 minutes stroll from Daly's) with decent grub, a few jars and excellent music, we bedded down in bedrooms finished an incredibly high standard.

Breakfast for me involved pancakes (I don't recall what anyone else said or ate – I am not at my clearest before 9am) ... lots of them. They were brilliant. From what I remember from before 9am, Susan was as exceptionally cheerful during breakfast, as she was after.

After breakfast, Susan took the time to list out all the multitude of walking and heritage tour options in great detail.

We really wanted to stay another night, but Susan Daly is a woman in high demand. The Saturday night was already booked out. We left Daly's House with promises to return soon (perhaps this Summer) and enthusiastic waves.

This is one of the best B&B experiences I have had in Ireland. The house is gorgeous, clean and has plenty of guest space outside of the bedrooms. The garden is beautiful (especially exceptional considering how windy that part of the world is), but what made the experience is Susan's seeming effortless charm and humour (though a keen observer will note she her formidable attention to every detail).

If you can get a room, Daly's is worth an extensive detour.

Room Tip: Don't do as we did. Book well in advance.

We really enjoyed our room and the food was excellent. Great service with Susan kindly packing us a lunch for one of our day trips. O'Connell's pub is only a short walk away along with some shopping. The other pubs were just a short drive away so there was no shortage of traditional Irish music and good food close by. The only drawback was that Daly's house was more expensive than the other B&Bs. We've stayed at other B&Bs in the Doolin area that were equally as nice for a better rate.
