Riverside Cottage is fine if you are looking for a no-frills B&B. Pros: The location is great - 10 minutes' drive from the Cliffs of Moher and a short walk to O'Connors Pub (which was wonderful). The room was clean and the breakfast was fine. The owner, Breida, was friendly. Cons: The room was right by the front door so...

Riverside Cottage was so pretty! The cottage was very, very clean. The owner and her daughter were so helpful and kind. We arrived on a very rainy day. They helped us to plan a hike along the Cliffs of Moher which is very close. We walked across the river to pick up the shuttle which took us to the visitors...

Breda runs a fantastic operation in Doolin. The B&B is a short walk to the shops and O'Connors pub and a longer walk to McGanns and McDermotts or a short drive if the weather is dodgy. No issues at all. The facility is clean and bright with a wonderful breakfast. I would definitely stay here again. For dinner you MUST...

This B&B is lovely! The owner, Breda, and her family/staff were wonderful while we stayed at this cottage. A stone's throw from shops, restaurants, and Gus O'Conners Pub which was the best live traditional folk music we heard during our entire trip in Ireland. You can also walk to the port and catch a ferry to the Aran Islands or...

We stayed here our first night in Ireland, and it was such a good intro! Breda and her daughters are fabulous, made sure we had all that we needed and then gave us suggestions on how to spend the next two days in the area, including supplying us with maps! They were so gracious! It's a 2 minute walk to...

Our family spent 3 nights in this lovely bed and breakfast last month. It's located in the centre of Doolin and you can walk to various pubs/restaurants. Breda and her daughter made us feel very welcome, looked after us very well, cooked us delicious breakfasts and the house is seriously spotless! They must spend all day cleaning! They gave us...

My wife and I stayed at the Riverside Cottage last week for two nights. It was truly amazing! Breda and her daughter were wonderful. They go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The location cannot be beat, the breakfasts were wonderful and their home is immaculate. The Riverside Cottage was better than any of the 5 star...

Our family of 6 spent 2 nights in this lovely B&B. It was one of the highlights of our Ireland vacation! Breda and her daughters were warm and welcoming, the rooms were cozy and immaculate and the breakfasts were delicious. The location could not have been better. We will be back again!!

We spent the night in this cosy B&B during our Burren hike. It is situated perfectly in the centre of Doolin (central but quiet). Our room was tastefully decorated. In fact we found the whole B&B quaint and stylish, e.g. there is a nice lounge with a fireplace. Breakfast was also very good.

We really have to say a great big thanks again to Breda because we were so very late arriving and yet she gave us a warm welcome. The house looks very well run and is spotlessly clean, the bed was comfy, the room was quiet, and breakfast in the morning was excellent and served in a bright and sunny room....
