I right this review with a big smile as I think of Mary - the owner of Riverdale who would have to be the most charming person in Ireland. & that's a hard task as there are plenty of friendly, charming people in Ireland. While we only stayed for 1 night, our room was incredibly comfortable, the road was quiet,...

We couldnt be more thankful that we stayed with Mary. She welcomed us right in and made us feel at home. We had a cozy bed to sleep in and delicious food. Her brown bread was the best in all of Ireland! She was also very helpful by telling us where to go for live music and even gave us...

Drove up to Doolin from Killarney via the ferry at Trabert and lodged at this property for an evening before heading over to Galway. Only a few rooms which allow Mary (proprietor) to literally hand cook your breakfast as per your choices made the Evening before and allows for chatting over your superb breakfast! Mary guided us over to McGann's...

We had a wonderful stay with Mary at the Riverdale Farmhouse. We stayed at 6 different places as we traveled through the southwest coast of Ireland and the Riverdale was our favorite. Mary had the best food and was so helpful with her tips of where to visit. By far the nicest, sweetest Irish hostess in all of Ireland. We...

Most of our accomodations during our Irish trip were boutique hotels, but we mixed in a few B&B's, of which Riverdale Farmhouse was the first. It seemed the right choice in the Doolin area. I don't recall how we settled on Mary's place, but it was the best choice. Riverdale is just outside of the town (such as it is)...

A nice cosy and very neat BB located with 5 mins drive from doolin. The owner is very friendly and helpful. We had a very good night's rest after travelling all the way from donegal to visit the cliffs of moher. Breakfast was served nicely prepared with personal choices. Glad my son goggled and found this place for us.

As soon as you park your car, you will probably meet Snuffy. Snuffy is their horse, and she will look at you as if to say, What did you bring me?? As nice as Snuffy is, Mary is without a doubt the sweetest lady in Ireland!! Super comfortable room, great breakfast. You will love your stay here. And bring a...

You won't meet a sweeter lady than Mary! She offered us tea and coffee on our arrival, and her tea was the best I've ever had. I drank tea the next 2 days for breakfast (and I always drink coffee)! The breakfasts were great (try the pancakes), and the shower was the best we had of the 6 places we...

We spent only one night on our way north and we enjoyed our stay immensely. We found Mary to be so nice and helpful! The room was lovely! The breakfast was delicious with the greatest scones I have ever tasted. We had a great night's sleep, it was very peaceful at Mary's.

Thank Mary E
