Stayed for 2 nights, the facilities were terrific, it was modern, warm and clean. Lovely host Carol. But the highlight was the breakfast, it was Superb, especially the brown bread. The restaurant was. Closed for the season, I'll definitely head back some day to eat there.

We showed up on the doorstep of Cullinan's after another B&B in Doolin unexpectedly cancelled our reservation. Carol immediately calmed our nerves and showed us to our lovely rooms. A welcoming fire in the lounge, great water views from the dining room, and walking distance to Fitz's pub across the street turned a potential disaster into a great night in... More

Lovely warm welcome as soon as we arrived from Carol. We stayed here during my sisters wedding in Doolin. The Guesthouse was spotless and cosy and the food each morning was excellent. Carol provided us with excellent hospitality! Ps Lily says thanks for her pancakes. Could not fault a thing.

We had planned to stay somewhere else, but when that fell through in the last minute Cullinan's welcomed us very graciously. We enjoyed their warm hospitality, comfortable rooms and prompt, delicious breakfast.

I stayed at Cullinan's in September with my family. There were 8 of us. Our rooms were lovely and spotlessly clean. The bed was so comfortable too. It was convenient for visiting the Cliffs of Mohr, Aran Islands and other attractions. Our hostess Carol was lovely and couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast choices were great and we had...

I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my one night stay here. It was one of my favorite B&B's during my two week stay in Ireland. I loved Doolin on a tour stop that was much too short several years ago and I vowed to come back. We did an overnight stay here to leave for the Aran Islands... More

A friend and I stayed here in Sept. We were only able to spend one night but would have liked to spend a week. Our room was spacious with two double beds (maybe queen size) and the bath was huge with a full tub and shower. It was exceptionally clean and quiet. Six friends joined us for a dinner that... More

This place is right in the middle of Doolin and boasts a beautiful garden and tasty restaurant . There are great pubs close by with Irish music and a few shops. Rooms are worn but extremely comfortable and homely. Best place we have stayed this trip. Wonderful hosts.

Cullinan's Guesthouse is fantastic, great location in the centre of town right across from the information centre, quiet rooms which are spacious and clean, a nice cosy common room for reading and best of all, a superb restaurant overlooking the stream at back of the property. Breakfast was excellent and staff are very friendly and accommodating.
