In the Wild atlantic lodge, things are nice, not wild. There are nice drinks from the bar next door, and the food is is excellent. We had great steaks, and nice seafood at fair prices.

We found the hotel, with its restaurant and bar, an excellent choice for a three day home base for day trips to the Aran Islands, the Cliffs, and the Burren. The room was fine and quiet.
