This was a rather old-fashioned B&B. The room were very small, the ensuite bathroom even smaller. Very little stuff provided (like soap). Breakfast was okay, but not special. Owners seemed nice, and parking was good. If full, imagine it would be potentially noisy. Suspect this area, which is very popular with tourists, may be able to get away with charging...

This was a marvelous B&B. Frank, the owner, was very nice and extremely helpful with ideas and directions. For example, he told us to go to The Cliffs of Moher at sunset, which we never would have done. The night was beautiful and the sunset spectacular. He is also a chef so breakfast was a treat. Instead of just getting...

Intentional house on working farm. Large comfy community room with peat fire. Large sunny dinning room with room for all of us at one table. Great breakfast including homemade zucchini and banana breads which we couldn't get enough of. Thanks Frank

I spent 1 night at the Moloney house B&B with a school group of 18. The B&B hosts Frank & Mary Ellen were gracious and welcoming to our group. When our travel plans to the Aran Islands had to be suddenly changed due to inclement weather Frank spent a huge amount of time calling other hotels on our behalf to...

Frank and Mary Ellen were fantastic hosts during our time in the town of Doolin. Their BnB was clean, warm, cozy, well taken care of, and the perfect stay during our time. Breakfast was delicious and the house was full of charm and character. When our group got into a bind due to the ferries to the Aran islands not...

We traveled in October 2016 and found this property extremely clean and well maintained. Our hosts were wonderful and very helpful. I believe we had the only room not en-suite, however it was not a problem. The trade off was the bathroom, just across the hall from our room, was still private and huge. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We...

Mr. Moloney's place is charming, comfortable, spotless in a gorgeous country setting. It is very close to Cliffs of Moher, Burren, and lovely beaches. You can also drive to Connemara National Park, Galway City and Lough Corrib for a day trip. In regards to the accomodations, you get comfy beds, great private baths with showers, gourmet breakfast, friendly atmosphere, fun...

Skip the bus tours that only give a shortened day visit to west coast sites. Instead plan an extended stay on the west coast. You will soon learn that one visits Ireland for contact with overly friendly locals. My family has visited Ireland 4 times to enjoy the people & the sites. We stayed at Moloney’s B&B located on the...

Easy to find the location if you have your own car (or hired car). It is painted pink/red, so it is not difficult to find. Ample parking available on grounds. It is in the centre of this very small village (Doolin) but enjoys spectacular views from the rooms. Cattle can be seen grazing next to the remains of a tower....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Moloney House is a 25-year-old purpose built bed and breakfast in the heart of Doolin. The home is situated on a 50-acre beef suckler family farm and overlooks the 500-year-old ruins of Doonmacfelim Castle to the rear of the home across the Aille River. There are six en-suite guestrooms and a comprehensive made-to-order breakfast menu is served every morning. The home is a 5-10 minutes walk from pubs, restaurants and shops. It is only a 5 minute walk to the start of the coastal trail that takes you to the Cliffs of Moher (approximately an 90 minute walk). It is a 20 minute walk to the Doolin Pier where you can take a ferry to the Aran Islands. We hope you enjoy your time in Doolin and your stay at Moloney House! ... more   less
