We stayed just one night and our experience was just Ok-- when we arrived Carol the owner made a remark about our large suitcases, yet she didn't offer to get us help upstairs. Someone remarked about her lack of warmth and I must agree. The room was also-just OK . They didn't have screens on the windows and we did...

Last minute we decided to stay in Doolin. Luckily this B&B had an opening for us. It was a great stay! Most comfortable bed we stayed in, CLEAN, and the breakfast was absolutely worth it and delicious. The popular pubs are within equal walking distance, and the wifi worked great. The owner, James, was so sweet to us. At night...

Cullinan's Guest House is a real treat! Careful attention has been given to every detail making it feel like a really special place to stay. From the delicious fresh fruit compote at breakfast to the polished wooden floors in the bedroom, there was a feel of luxury and warmth throughout. We also got a very warm welcome from Carol Cullinan...

This was my second visit to Carol's guesthouse Cullinan's that she owns and operates with her husband. I specifically wanted to come back because I felt so comfortable there. The beds are beautiful, the sheets and blankets are lovely and clean, It is nicely decorated with care. It's felt like coming home to your mom's house in only the very...

Our stay at Cullinan's was very pleasant. We got a very lovely room that opens to a patio looking out to a wonderful scenic Doolin. Delicious breakfast freshly prepared for you..I don't wanna leave! Carol and her staff are the best. So friendly and sweet. I would definitely stay here again next time I'm back in town.

The Room, Sheets, bed and just everything was just super. The lady of the house and her daughter who we met at breakfast were lovely in every way. I would rate this as 110 out of 100 - We visit Doolin every year and this will be where we will be staying in future.

This is a great accommodation. The furnishings are lovely, and the soul of music is present within the house. We later discovered the owners play traditional music in local venues. We were disappointed that the restaurant was closed for dinner the day we arrived, but breakfast was absolutely fantastic. The setting of this property is perfect to enjoy the sunset,...

I am very pleased with my choice of guest houses in Doolin. Although this was not my first, I think it was better. The room was towards the back, by a stream. It was quiet, clean. The food was good. We were able to walk to the pubs, very nice. I do feel the owner ( ?) could have been...

I just want to recommend this guesthouse as they were so welcoming and really tried to get me in that night which they did. It was a Wednesday so it was a pity as that is the night the restaurant is closed which I hear is terrific. If it is anything like the breakfast I will need to go back!...

We loved the homey atmosphere at Cullianan's. Our room was very comfortable with plenty of space. We brought the wrong adaptors and Carol's son lent us two. We offered to buy one at the end of our stay and Carol gave both of them to us. Helped us the remainder of our trip! The breakfast was delicious as well as...
