Stayed a wonderful night in the B&B on Inishmore. The rooms were roomy, clean, and comfortable. Had a trap ride (horse-drawn carriage) up to Dun Angus and was BLOWN away. Amazing place. Breakfast was very good. Thank you!

This B&B does not use a booking service. You have to book directly with the host, Marion, so there is no conformation code or anything you receive showing that you actually have a reservation except for email traffic with the host. I inquired by email on January 26, 2016, as to availability of a triple room for one night, June...

What a wonderful stay on the island, accentuated by the stay at the Clai Ban. Very comfortable accomodations, and our host Bartley could not have been more welcoming and friendly. Not to mention the delicious breakfasts he made for us. Don't forget to listen to the wonderful music his two sons create........the CD is terrific. Thanks Bartley! We will definitely...

We stayed in late March, 2016. It was very peaceful and quiet and comfortable. The breakfast was served in a beautiful room that was cozy and comfy. It was so delicious! The b&b was spotless and made us feel like home. It was rainy the morning we left to catch the ferry and Bartley was so kind to drive us...

The owners were wonderful, friendly, and welcoming. The food was incredible and they were nice enough to prepare it a bit later than usual since we slept in. The room was impeccable, the beds were very comfortable, and the room was warm despite a rather cold night! It is right next to the most fun bars in town (Ti Joe...

First, the good things, Clai Ban on the Inishmore island is about as good a b&b as they get. Nice, warm room ( it was January), en suite, and a warm welcome from our host Bartley. Breakfast was a healthy Irish thing, good by any standards. A small little pleasure was the house dog, Guinness, black and white of course,...

The trip to Inishmore was an adventure. We expected rain and cool temperatures. We didn't expect 130 k/ph wind. After a real aerobic exercise to get to the top of Dún Aonghasa we had a pint then got on the ferry. Imagine our surprise at 5:00 p.m. When the crew said the wind and sea was to rough and the...

This B&B was a great place to stay on Inishmore. The owners were very nice and served us a great breakfast in time to get us to our early morning ferry. Good wifi and nice, clean rooms. Would recommend and stay there again.

We wanted to stay overnight on Inishmoor to get more of a sense of the place than we would just on a day trip. Once we got off the ferry in the late morning, we went to Clai Ban and Bartley welcomed us and made us feel quite at home right away. We dropped off our things in our room...

“The "family" room (room 1) is excellent and fits four comfortably but is at ground level and faces the entry way/driveway so you will need to close your curtains and hide your view if you value privacy.”
