Thanks again to Bernadette and Armin for another wonderful 3 night break. We have been going to Drumcreehy at least once a year for the past five or six years, and we are always sad to leave. Incredible breakfasts, spacious, cozy rooms, and very ecologically aware. Bernadette has lots of suggestions for interesting activities and walks. Bishop’s Quarter beach is a short walk away and Ballyvaughan ,with it’s restaurants and pubs,is a short drive . I have to say that we always felt safe there due to their strict COVID procedures. Hopefully we will get back again soon for another staycation. It’s such a wonderful escape in these challenging times.

Amazing location for a start, heart of the burren, gorgeous views of mountains and sea. Lovely house comfortable, warm and docorated beautifully. Good facilities, rooms very nice and spotlessly clean, decent wifi (reception isn't always great in the Burren, so this is important!). All covid precautions adhered to (we felt very safe). Lovely breakfast to order in beautiful breakfast room. Helpful, friendly and professional people here, was a lovely stay from start to finish, would stay here again any time.

We had a wonderful stay at Drumcreehy House. Our room was beautifully decorated with attention to detail as all the guest house is. Bernadette and Armin are wonderful hosts and so we felt very cared for. We would like to highlight the excellent breakfast. Often we stay in 4 and 5 star hotels on business, but have seldom been served such a delicious breakfast.

As usual our stay at Drumcreehy was very-very good. I highly recommend a visit there and to the many local places of interest. It is a most relaxing place with wonderful views of the bay, sea and mountains. Really fabulous. As for the quality of the breakfast at Drumcreehy, it is worth a visit just for the breakfast alone. I could go on and on. Its one beautiful place. G&G

Just back from a wonderful stay at Drumcreehy House with my pet friend. Absolutely delightful place to stay and Bernadette is a wonderful host. We were looked after very well especially in light of the current climate and felt very safe. I would highly recommend it for anyone looking to stay in Ballyvaughan. Breakfasts were delicious and plenty of options.
