My wife and I recently spent three nights here. Margaret and Conor, the hosts/proprietors, were wonderful. The room was spacious, with a great view, and the breakfasts were excellent. But the best part was the great information they provided to us that really made our visit worthwhile. Conor took the time to find out what we were interested in and...

Wonderful location, friendliest hosts, cleanest and lovliest rooms, including the breakfast room and sitting room! It was the first day of their opening this year and when we arrived, Margaret, although very busy, got us to our room and gave us all kinds of information for the area (with books to borrow), including the burren and cliffs of Mohr, Doolin..........Conor...

We just returned from a week long trip to Ireland and stayed two nights at the Cappabhaile House. Conor could not have been a better host. The house is pristine clean, beds comfy and breakfast was outstanding. Conor is incredibly knowledgeable and happy to help you navigate the area and the sites. On the second night of our stay, he...

My wife and I recently returned from Ireland and a stay at Cappabhaile House. I can't say enough about Conor and his wife Margaret. The room that we occupied faced the Burren and was quite large and roomy and generously appointed. Accomodations contained a double and single (with double easily large enough to accomodate two people) . The bathroom was...

Stayed here for three nights with my husband and 13yr son. We really enjoyed our stay and the helpful information given about the area by Conor and Margaret.

We've traveled throughout Ireland over the years and have found our new favorite. The spacious room & beds exceeded our expectations. My wife particularly enjoyed the large bathroom & bath for the kids. That said, it was the hospitality, music and laughter that made the experience most memorable. After mentioning how we love Irish music at dinner, our host Conor...

Enjoyed this wonderful B&B. Great location with comfortable, clean, well furnished rooms with king size beds and huge bathrooms. Classic decor throughout accentuated by tasteful photographs along the hallway. The wonderful owners, Margaret and Conor, are very hospitable and serve a fantastic breakfast spread with tons of food.

This B&B has a lot going for it. The rooms are spacious & clean. Margaret & Conor are the perfect hosts. Prepare to be hungry because the breakfasts are ample. Our room overlooked a beautiful pasture and mountains in the background. A great location to explore the Burren. We just wished we had enough time to sit and talk to...

My mother and I spent about three weeks in Ireland total, and our time at the Cappabhaile House in Ballyvaughan was a highlight. While it's not immediately in town, it was a fantastic jumping off point for our drives all around County Clare and beyond, from the Cliffs of Moher to Coole Park to exploring the back roads of the...

Perfect B&B our room was huge and comfortable with a great large bath. The tea service which many B&B 's have stopped was wonderful and we enjoyed looking at the Burren from comfortable chairs with tea and biscuits. Conor sang and played that evening. He is a talented musician and singer and truly loves Ireland and especially County Clare. His...
