This was our favorite stay in Ireland 🇮🇪 It was close to Cliffs Of Moher, awesome local Irish pubs and traditional Irish music, near castles, caves, the water. Best hike from pub to cliffs of moher- great views and countryside! Highly recommend to stay here & experience all of Doolin in excess of Cliffs Of Moher!!!!
