We were passing back from a day out in Galway. We stopped in Ballyvaughan and found Hylands. The staff were very friendly and a girl named Megan took our orderd she couldn't have been more helpful. The food was excellent and tasty. The barman Cian was very knowledgeable about the local area and a handsome young guy. We enjoyed his...

Not that there are many direct routes in North Clare, but it is really worthwhile to take the winding Coast Road, rugged as it is. As I passed the attractive venue of Hylands, I made the right decision to stop in- having a car park certainly helped. It's a warm welcoming place with excellent food and kindly service. There are...

We stayed at this hotel one night in a family room-kids were separated but there was a doorway. The hotel is very pretty with a pub, separate dining room, plenty of fireplaces and sitting area. They also own a great Italian restaurant next door which i would highly recommend. The staff could not have been nicer and a lovely full...

We stayed here as a last. Knute booking, a party of 5 including 2 babies. The family room was comfortable and spacious. It was great to have a bar and restaurant downstairs, with real fires. The menu was fine. We didn't have dinner there but the snacks that we had, and the breakfast, were lovely. Overall, I would have expected...

We stopped here on the way home from visiting santa at the aillawee caves. The food was very nice. The service was friendly. It was reasonable. And the lady who checked on us offered us more, a thing that was common practice. It was a lovely country touch

I usually like to stay in small B&Bs, if I am only staying for a few days, but the Staff at this Hotel makes you feel special and as a member of the family. The Staff in the lunch and dinner dining room< James and Thomas, knew my name and acknowledged me every time I walked by. Christina, behind the...

Stayed one night recently with the good lady. Staff helpful and room clean but quite small. We like walking in the Burren and if we had to bring any wet gear into bedroom and bathroom, we would have had a challenge. We were in a front bedroom and unfortunately the walls through to next bedroom were like paper, and could...

We were on day 6 and 7 of our self-drive tour and the tour company booked this hotel. We found it charming, the beds were unique to us and very comfortable. The staff were helpful. The room was clean and afforded us a good nights rest both evenings. It was convenient to the sights we wanted to see. We found...

Stayed here while touring the Burren. The hotel is quaint and centrally located in the Ballyvaughan Square. My room had a nice view of part of the Burren and was small but cozy. Not noisy except for the street traffic below, which died down in late evening. The hotel also has a private parking lot in the back. I had...
