Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    We had a shortened rainy day at the Cliffs of Moher so we visited Doolin Cave. We took a short (<1 hr.) tour. My review title is a bit of facetiousness-- there's a lot of moisture dripping from the cave walls. The cave is remarkable in one respect, one huge stalactite in a large chamber. Our guide was well versed in cave's geology and history and the small on site snack stand had some rather tasty baked treats.

    Yet another gem and a must. We have gone back for several years and never get enough. A photographer's dream location.

    One does not expect to find such a beautiful garden on the windswept Wet Coast of Ireland but this one is well worth a visit, especially if you also have a garden of your own. You will not only get some wonderful ideas but you will be able to purchase some excellent specimens of many of the plants you have seen. Well worth a short detour from the Wild Atlantic Way to see it.

    This is a nice area to explore with several different walks for all different abilities.
    While you are there be sure to stop at the Burren Perfumery with its beautiful gardens and wonderful homemade food!

    Take a ferry to the Aran Islands! You will not regret it. Great views of the Cliffs of Mother and excellent for pictures and taking walks.

    Very fun course. Very challenging with tiny greens and high winds. The only knock is bumpy greens. But, great value and a lot of fun.

    We had such a lovely evening at the Doolin Music House! It was fascinating not just to to hear but to also learn something about the local styles of music, and also to hear stories about life in the Doolin area. We very much appreciated the opportunity to spend the evening here: thank you Christy, James, Sheila and Imelda!

    Beautiful woolen items, Gina and pottery, foodstuffs, candles, jewelry, etc. Staff is wonderfully pleasant to interact with.

    Note - as of April 2, 2024 this is open, contrary to what the Trip Advisor app says

    One of my favourite pubs when we visit Ireland. The staff are amazing. Very friendly and super efficient. Very Quick bar service and the pub gets so busy but they always welcome everyone on arrival at the bar with a smile. Plus the food is first class.

    Make sure you buy enough jam when you go there because you realise when you get how how great it is.

    We stopped in this shop on our way to the Cliffs of Moher. We stopped at a local pub Doolin before heading over to the cliffs and our coach driver suggested that if we had time after our meal, we should check out the little chocolate shop next door. We are so glad we stopped in here! The lady working in the shop was very welcoming and friendly. We had a hard time deciding what we wanted because there was so much to choose from! The prices were very reasonable as well. There is a minimum amount you must spend if you wanted to pay on a credit card (€10) so just be mindful about that. We purchased six different flavors of fudge and none of them were a disappointment! We highly recommend the Irish Cream Liqueur and Cappuccino fudge flavors. The fudge was very fresh and flavorful. This shop will not disappoint! If you are in Doolin, this place is a must!
