“One of the best”
Reviewed 11 September 2013

This a a purpose built facility run by a second generation owner. We have stayed in over 30 B&Bs or hotels in Ireland and this is one of the best. The location is very quiet but might be better indicated. The hostess is very welcoming, the rooms are spacious and airy, and the breakfast exceeds normal Irish standards. And, it's just up the hill from some great pubs!

Stayed for only one night while travelling through Ireland, but my stay at Harbour View was worth leaving a comment. Room was clean, spacious, bright, with all amenities including cable tv and WiFi. If I was to spend a few days hiking in the area, Harbour View would be an excellent location to call home base.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the road have a magnificent view of the harbour. While the road is close, I can't...

This was the best B&B that I stayed in Ireland ! The place is perfect.
Also, I got sick "sea sick" and they took care of me all day. They feed me, they check on my every hour.. In that situation is when you experience the kind of people. Cathy, you have a big heart! Thank you

This is a convenient location to Cliffs of Mohr, but a little bit of a walk to the pubs in Doolin. however, the owners are super nice and gave us a ride down in the evening and a taxi back was only 5 euros. The B & B was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was out of this world. We would definitely stay here again! Cathy and Johnathan were lovely people - happy to help you but not obtrusive. We stayed here a few weeks ago and although it was only one night, I have to say we will definitely be back to Doolin for the music festival in June!

We stayed at the Harbour View B & B for two nights. Cathy checked us in and was friendly and helpful. Our room on the lower level had an entrance door to the parking lot and another door that led up some steps to the breakfast area and a sitting room. Our room was small but clean. The bathroom was clean, large, modern, and beautiful and included a large whirlpool tub with jets! The Wi-Fi reception was weak in our room but Cathy informed us that is was strong in the sitting area/living room. She offered to give us another room with better reception but we said it was not necessary. Our breakfast on both mornings was delicious. Harbour View is located on a bluff so we had a great view from our window of the harbor and Doolin off in the distance. It is a short 3-5 minute drive into Doolin. We enjoyed our evenings in Doolin eating pub food, drinking Guinness and listening to traditional Irish music sessions. Harbour View is a great location to stay when visiting must see locations like the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher. The Doolin Cliff walk was fabulous and offered stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and the beautiful County Claire countryside. We only had time to walk part of the Doolin Cliff walk but next time we visit we will book a spot on the guided Doolin Cliff Walk with local guide Pat Sweeney! We enjoyed our stay at Harbor View and would definitely stay there again on a future visit.

Room Tip: Sounds like the rooms on the upper floor are more spacious.

This was definitely one of the nicest B&Bs we stayed in while in Ireland. Very clean and new feeling. Our room had a private sitting room off of the bedroom. Our daughter and her husband had a fancy bathroom with a spa tub and even a bidet! It seems that each room had its own pleasant surprise. It was cool that we were just down the road from the Cliffs Of Moher.

Room Tip: Ask for the room with the Spa tub and bidet.
