“Can't wait to return”
Reviewed 8 April 2014 via mobile

I just wanted to leave a little note to thank hotel Doolin for such a wonderful time when we stayed there last month.
We travelled in a group of 25 and everything went wonderfully ,the food was fantastic ,we all had dinner there which was absolutely divine.
Those of us who made it to breakfast were very impressed with selection of fresh and cooked breakfast.
The rooms were spotless and they even had lovely 'voya 'products in the bathroom.
All of the staff were more than helpful ,and the overall service was brilliant .
Thanks for a wonderful time ,can't wait to return.

Our stay here is great...the only bad thing I have to say is that our stay was too short. This hotel is every bit as charming as the town of Doolin. The hotel is modern and stylish, but the staff very much keep the Irish "feel" going. The rooms are clean and nicely furnished. The restaurant was delicious and the bar was one of the best places to be in Doolin.

Just returned from a most enjoyable visit to Hotel Doolin. First off, the staff from telephone reservations to reception on arrival, the bar and dining staff for dinner and breakfast were the key to a memorable visit. Great choice of craft beers also which is terrific. Kieran in the bar was a great tasting guide.The rooms are spacious and very well equipped. Perhaps a little on the chilly side post 10pm for some reason. Breakfast was especially well cooked and presented. Doolin is a wonderful location for outdoor activities. Don't miss Pat Sweeney's local cliff walk. You will be enthralled, entertained by Pat and wowed by the Cliffs of Moher. All in all, this is a great destination and Hotel Doolin will not disappoint.

My husband, 8 month old baby& myself stayed in this hotel during St Patrick's weekend. Our first impressions were mixed as the hotel is a modern building in the middle of Doolin village, but when we entered we were really impressed with the layout, decor& the staff. This modern well furnished hotel is beautiful, it's not that big but it holds a warm and friendly atmosphere. Fitz's bar serves excellent fresh sea food and you can enjoy your meal while listening to a live trad group. The room was spotless with seaweed provided for a seaweed bath. The staff, as I've already mentioned were extremely attentive and courteous, they really couldn't have done enough for us. As anyone with small children will know , it can be challenging travelling, Hotel Doolin made our stay extremely comfortable and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this hotel& we will certainly be returning!!!
