Dear Rosemariegriffith,

Thank you so much for taking the time to write your lovely review. As you know by now, so many of our guests return year after year that it feels like one huge family sometimes. We see guests meeting each other and the staff every year like old friends, new friendships being formed, the banter over breakfast or in the bar at night and those pancakes!

I hope you all make it back to us in 2018 for more of the same.

Regards,

Andrew

one of the best family breaks we have ever been on. The staff were excellent nothing was too much trouble extremely friendly and welcoming. We loved the breakfast especially the children they still talk about the pancakes. The island speaks for itself absolutely stunning cant wait to return!!!! also the food in the restaurant was excellent didnt expect such high quality. Loved all the activities available especially the kayaking something we had never done before. Highly reccommend Doonmore Hotel would definately stay again very family friendly, great atmosphere and craic with the nightly music sessions something for everyone.

Dear katherinemurphy123,

Thank you so much for your lovely review. Our breakfast pancakes (secret family recipe!) are world famous at this stage, central to many lasting childhood memories of holidays on Inishbofin from 1969 to the present day!
We won the Food & Wine Magazine pub food of the year 2017 and intend to keep that standard up for the future. We like to see every age group enjoy themselves and our guest profile attests to this, peole of all ages, kids, parents and grandparents all find something to enjoy here.

I'm certain you'll be back to join our ever increasing group of regular guests and I look forward to seeing you then.
Regards,
Andrew

Three trips so far - and now on our annual Irish islands list of places to go to. Inisbofin is a small but varied island of the west coast of Ireland. Lots of excellent walk. And Doonmore Hotel is just the place to stay - for location, for comfort, for eating and for a cheerful drink before sleeping. The staff are great. It's a family business - for families - but also for anyone who wants to enjoy the flora, fauna and land and seascapes of the island.

We have stayed at the Doonmore Hotel for three years in a row. The hotel is comfortable, well located for walking, has a friendly and efficient staff, a good restaurant and a good bar. We intend to stay at the Doonmore Hotel again next summer

Andrew and his family create a very relaxing environment in the Hotel where every guest feels as if he or she is part of the family and that is what makes it very welcoming. If you add the laid back atmosphere in the bar and restaurant throughout the day and evening and the impromptu traditional music at night then you have the formula for a great stay.

Dear Kevin O,

Thank you for your vrey positive review. I'm delighted that you felt part of the family during your stay with us. That is exactly how I like all our guests to feel, like you're coming home.
We like creating the atmosphere as we like everyone on holidays to feel relaxed and calm, that's how a stay on Inishbofin should be.
I want our guests to leave their cares behind and let us look after them..

Thank you again and I hope we see you in again 2018.

Regards,

Andrew
