Dad and I stayed here for the past 3 years to visit Doolin, the Cliffs of Moher and County Clare. Great breakfast and a nice bedroom with views. Nice location outside of the Doolin Village but close enough for a short drive home from the pubs. I'll be staying here again next year!!

1. Stayed here for a night, after a long drive post Ring Of Kerry and then from Killarney to Doolin. So when we reached here we were knackered. We were 5 people: 4 adults, 1 child(4yrs). We were given the family room, which was great, neat & tidy, ensuite bathroom. All in all, no issues with the room. It had...

From the minute we arrived we were made so welcome. Brought in sat at a table made fresh coffee and home made baking. Mary then got a Map out and highlighted all the best locations to eat and drink. Then marked places on the map where I would get great photos and how to get to them. We then went...

Riverdale Farmhouse B&B was an unexpected surprise. Unable to find booking at another favorite local B&B, we opted for this option. Riverdale is somewhat outside the main tourist area of the pubs and shops, but what's lost there is made up in the lovely quiet and seclusion of the Irish countryside. Hostess Mary is a delight and leaving her breakfast...

What can I say our host, Mary, was just fantastic friendly and welcoming. The room was well appointed, breakfast spot on (my wife loved the pancakes) and the Irish breakfast for me ticked all the boxes. I did nick a couple of scones for the road but don't tell Mary. I should mention the coffee and cake on arrival was...

Mary, the owner makes this your home away from home. She has been doing this for years and her hospitality shows. We slept upstairs in the #1 room and it was super quiet and spacious. The best part is breakfast, she uses farm-fresh free range eggs and they were poached perfectly. My sister had the porridge and full Irish breakfast....

I right this review with a big smile as I think of Mary - the owner of Riverdale who would have to be the most charming person in Ireland. & that's a hard task as there are plenty of friendly, charming people in Ireland. While we only stayed for 1 night, our room was incredibly comfortable, the road was quiet,...

We couldnt be more thankful that we stayed with Mary. She welcomed us right in and made us feel at home. We had a cozy bed to sleep in and delicious food. Her brown bread was the best in all of Ireland! She was also very helpful by telling us where to go for live music and even gave us...

Drove up to Doolin from Killarney via the ferry at Trabert and lodged at this property for an evening before heading over to Galway. Only a few rooms which allow Mary (proprietor) to literally hand cook your breakfast as per your choices made the Evening before and allows for chatting over your superb breakfast! Mary guided us over to McGann's...

We had a wonderful stay with Mary at the Riverdale Farmhouse. We stayed at 6 different places as we traveled through the southwest coast of Ireland and the Riverdale was our favorite. Mary had the best food and was so helpful with her tips of where to visit. By far the nicest, sweetest Irish hostess in all of Ireland. We...
