“beautiful home with magnificant views - we didn't want to leave”
Reviewed 11 March 2010

we stayed in a spacious room on the ground floor - this beautifully appointed room has a double and a single bed and en-suite with wonderful views over Liscannor Bay and Lahinch - breakfast was served in the breakfast room - Bridget, our wonderful hostess,served the most delicious cooked Irish breakfast along with her own home-made scones and brown bread - it kept us going until our evening meal. After a busy day touring the Burren and the Cliffs of Moher we relaxed in the sitting room in front of the open turf fire - a great end to the day.

Reviewed 24 October 2009

We're a couple in our 30's who were looking for a quiet few days exploring County Clare at our leisure. 'Harbour Sunset' is a quiet, cosy and peaceful Bed & Breakfast pearched above Lehinch Beach, away from the main road and the bustle of the tourists on route to the Cliffs of Moher (just a 5 minute drive away).
The clean, dry and well presented rooms are comfortable but have no TV in the rooms. We thought it was a good thing as people often leave the TV on late into the night or have it on too loud at the crack of dawn - there's a satellite TV in the sitting room.
Bridget provides a generous Full Irish or Continental breakfast along with her delicious home baked bread and scones.
We got a genuinely warm welcome that lasted the four days we stayed there. Have to say we were very pleasantly surprised - I thought that level of genuine hospitality was dead. Nothing was too much trouble if we needed anything. The owner, Bridget, is a lovely lady who cannot do enough for you but never intrudes or is overbearing in any way. We felt at home in her relaxing, cosy and homely guesthouse... it was one of the highlights of our trip to Co. Clare.
When we needed to drive to Doolin to catch the ferry to the Aran Islands she insisted on driving ahead of us on the little backroads so that we wouldn't get lost and miss the ferry. She even gave us a little gift of cream cakes for a snack on the ferry as it was chilly at sea, we were very touched by her thoughtfulness. When we returned in the evenings she would provide us with tea and homemade scones, butter and jam...
Even though it is a working farm there are no odd smells or noises - the silence at night and the quiet by day was a welcome break from the city, and the sweet little donkeys who pester the elderly sheep in her garden are charming.

Thoroughly recommeded for older couple's, elderly people and relaxed groups. Nice for unfussy families with small children as there are animals to pet and a beach/shops a few minutes drive away.
Not recommended for young hipsters who want to party as it's up the side of a hill overlooking Lehinch Bay and surrounded by sleepy fields.

Overall we were very happy and will definitely return again, thanks Bridget!

Bridget O'Gorman proved to be a wonderful hostess who rescued us from a disaster by agreeing to give us a room at the last minute on a holiday weekend after our reserved B&B turned out to be out of business upon our arrival. It turned out to our advantage. After a lovely dinner in the nearby village of Liscannor, we returned to the Harbour Sunset Farm for scones and nice conversation in the parlor in front of a welcoming peat fire. Our twin room was clean with bathroom en suite and very quiet. The full Irish breakfast was delicious and generous. The price was very reasonable. The next morning we were off to the Cliffs of Moher which were easy to find and only a short drive away passing through Liscannor.
