We stayed here for one night - the room was nice and we enjoyed the breakfast. It is a little farther out of town but that wasn't a big deal to us as we were driving. Food wise there is a restaurant and bar on the property but we found it to be out of our price range - we...

The Aran View is a fine place to stay. It was clean, the staff was pleasant, the view was good and the breakfast was plentiful. Decor is a throwback to the 1970's, and the location is a little further out of Doolin than I would have liked if I wanted to walk back after enjoying the local music.

This is a well run B&B style hotel with the best ocean view in the Doolin area. It was a perfect hub for our Burren adventures. Plenty of free parking and a small, but beautiful bar that stays open as late as you. Free breakfast. Wifi only in public.

Definitely my favorite part of my 2 week trip was my stay at this hotel. Theresa , her daughter Sharon, Mikaella (sp?) are lovely souls. We stayed on the third floor in the very front room with a breathtaking view of the ocean, cows, sheep, and the Aran islands. I could have sat in that chair gazing out all day....

We liked the Aran View so much the first time we stayed there that we decided to stay again when returning to the area recently. The hotel has stunning views of the Aran Islands and Cliffs of Moher and, on this visit, we were blessed with sunshine. Our room was spacious and comfortable with everything needed for a short break....

Aran View is aptly named. The view of the Aran islands from the hotel is outstanding. It is ideally located for a trip to the Cliffs of Moher. There is lots of traditional music to be enjoyed in the local pubs. Aran View gets A+ in all categories. Our room was comfortable and well appointed. The food was excellent, both...

We had the pleasure of staying in this delightful hotel, I simply could not fault it! Rooms were comfortable & spotless, the staff couldn't do enough for us & breakfast was fantastic, not rushed even though we stayed way too long chatting & had copious amounts of coffee refills! Highly recommend & I will be visiting again for sure!! :-)

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aran View Country House Hotel, built in the georgian period, in 1736, stands on a hill on the coast road commanding one of the finest views of the wild Clare coastline. Facing the Aran View Hotel, lie the beautiful Aran Islands just seven miles from Doolin. To the North is the famous Burren landscape and exotic wild flowers. Looking South is the Doolin pier and the begining of the imposing Cliffs of Moher jutting out into the wild Atlantic Ocean. One will never tire of these views of an ever-changing landscape of greens and blues. Each room is indivudally decorated keeping the Georgian feel as much as possible. You can enjoy a relaxing drink each evening in the lounge bar, while watching some of the more amazing sunset. You can also enjoy Fresh Scones, tea/coffee in the bar each evening. We assure both new and old guest and warmest of hospitality and relaxation, during you stay at the Aran View Country House Hotel. ... more   less
