Riverdale was our first B and B in Ireland; it was easy to find, clean and comfortable. Mary set the bar quite high for the rest of our visit. Mary welcomed us with tea,and an infectious laugh; sharing the history of Ireland and suggestions of things to do in the area. Homemade scones and a blazing fire helped to make...

Everything. Mary alone made my stay worth well. She represents the best of Ireland and its people - the warmth, the history and stories, the smiles. She grew up in Doolin, and her family has been here for generations. She's very helpful with all the great suggestions on where to go and eat. Upon arrival, she offers you tea/coffee and...

Stayed here for one night while on a self-guided tour of Ireland with our daughter. Mary, the hostess was extremely gracious even though we arrived later than we should have. Our room was as advertised, a queen size bed for my husband and myself and a separate twin bed for our daughter. We had a private bath that was roomy,...

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....
