Aran View Country House is far enough outside Doolin to be away from the tourists but not so far that dedicated walkers couldn't have a healthy 30 minute or so trip into town if they didn't mind the narrow roads with no shoulder. I drove in 5 minutes. I loved how quiet the location was, the sea view (when it... More

This family run hotel is ideally situated a ten minute walk from the McDermott and McGann pubs in Doolin. The hotel is comfortable and charming. We enjoyed views across to the Aran Islands. We used it as a base for the Cliffs of Moher, the Burran and Doolin food and drink.

This was an ok hotel bedroom, but the bathroom was down a steep ramp and it had no source of heat along with a cold draft from a skylight. Staff were nice and breakfast buffet was ok, but the French toast was awful and the tea had a very odd taste. I decided to have a drink of water and... More

We stayed here for 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The hotel is very comfortable and the staff are excellent. This is a great location for touring the West Clare area and a great stop off for the Great Atlantic way. This is a very good family run hotel and we would certainly recommend this hotel to the most... More

The room we prefer is a family room having 2 rooms separated be a short hallway which has the bathroom. One room has a queen bed and the other has twins. Both have other furnishings that reflect the older style of the house.It's homey and spacious and is great in keeping the two snorers apart! It was originally a landlord's... More

Sharon and her family were very gracious and accommodating. The view and location were fabulous. Clean, large room with great breakfast. If we return to Ireland, we will come here. Easy drive to the cliffs of Moher and 2 pubs on Doolin.

Myself, my husband and our two kids aged 13 and 7 spent a night in this cosy and friendly hotel. Set in a peaceful area outside Doolin village on the road to Lisdoonvarna, very relaxing atmosphere and welcoming staff. Lovely breakfast and even though hotel was fully booked it was so quiet - highly recommend this property.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aran View Country House Hotel, built in the georgian period, in 1736, stands on a hill on the coast road commanding one of the finest views of the wild Clare coastline. Facing the Aran View Hotel, lie the beautiful Aran Islands just seven miles from Doolin. To the North is the famous Burren landscape and exotic wild flowers. Looking South is the Doolin pier and the begining of the imposing Cliffs of Moher jutting out into the wild Atlantic Ocean. One will never tire of these views of an ever-changing landscape of greens and blues. Each room is indivudally decorated keeping the Georgian feel as much as possible. You can enjoy a relaxing drink each evening in the lounge bar, while watching some of the more amazing sunset. You can also enjoy Fresh Scones, tea/coffee in the bar each evening. We assure both new and old guest and warmest of hospitality and relaxation, during you stay at the Aran View Country House Hotel. ... more   less
