We were in Doolin for what must have been one of the best week this year - warm and sunny! The location is wonderful with great scenery and a lovely aspect. The hotel itself is welcoming, offering a good breakfast and lovely walks. There are also great pubs nearby offering good fun and live music.

We stayed here for one night so we could visit the cliffs. The room was lovely and they've done a lot to make a very old house spiffy. The staff were all very friendly and breakfast was nice. It was a short ten minute walk to McGanns pub for dinner and only 15min or so from the cliffs. The hotel...

We visited in October 2016 for one night. The location is absolutely perfect for visiting the Cliffs of Moher. Takes only about 15 minutes to get there and you can see parts of it from the hotel. Rooms: the rooms are comfortable, but the furniture is a little worn. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again for a couple night;...

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...

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...

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...

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...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aran View Country House, 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 Country House, 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 glass of wine, while watching some of the more amazing sunset. You can also enjoy Fresh Scones, tea/coffee in the lounge each afternoon. We assure both new and old guest and warmest of hospitality and relaxation, during you stay at the Aran View Country House. ... more   less
