We booked this at random because it was close to the Cliffs of Moher and The Burren and we were touring in Ireland. It's essentially a tour hotel so the restaurant isn't frilly, but the food is very good and the service is fantastic. Our room was enormous and spotlessly clean with bright white linen and big fluffy towels. The...

Stayed here for two nights and they are definitely the friendliest staff we have met on our travels through Ireland. Great location for the Cliffs, clean rooms and an excellent breakfast. Would highly recommend.

The room, parking, staff and the facilities in general were very good. We had breakfast each morning in the hotel and it was delicious. The staff were attentive and nice and accommodated any requests we had. The taxi to the nearest restaurant/pub areas was a bit more expensive than we expected, I think it worked out at 15 euro each...

A simple hotel not far from the Cliffs of Moher. It is in the countryside. The basic rooms had a little bathroom. Wi-fi connection available only in the hall. The little pub inside the hotel is pretty. Big parking. The breakfast was not international but good!. It was a pleasant stay !

Don't judge a book by its cover as the outside doesn't reflect how nice it is inside. The staff were unbelievably friendly and just couldn't do enough for you. The hotel manager and restaurants manager were extremely friendly and professional. The breakfast was top notch and the service was second to none. Great work...pity it's closed for winter the months...

I recently stayed at the burren castle hotel for 2 nights from the 18th - 20th August.

We had breakfast on both mornings in the hotel which...

The grounds and hotel are very outdated, but the staff was always kind and helpful. There is no wifi in the rooms...only in the lobby. The mattresses were as thin as a cardboard box...we barely got any sleep. The bedding was rough and uncomfortable. The food offered at their restaurant was not great and some of it was undercooked. The...
