We thought this was in/near Doolin but it's just out on a bluff that took the GPS a while to find. The hotel is next to a wonderful castle ruin, which you get to tour as guests with the host--that was the highlight for our...More

There are taxis in town but not many, the pubs in town are great but the restaurant in the hotel is one of the best in the area. Pub in the hotel is VERY quiet and you'll find you're often the only one there, but it's very quaint and the service is good. No live music in the hotel pub.
The actual town has a few really good pubs, and it's the centre of music so you'll find it all good fun. Recommend O'Connor's and McGann's (locals' favourites).
