We stayed at Cappabhaile House in October 2016. The house itself is really stunning. It is jam-packed with loads of curios and old trinkets. The room we stayed in was really spacious and had a stunning view of the Burren. The welcome from the owners was warm and genuine and they went out of their way to accomodate us and...

I stayed in Cappabhaile for 2 nights whilst in Ballyvaughan for my brother's wedding. I had a lovely stay and slept better over the 2 nights than I had in a long time. The bedroom was well presented, warm and more equipped with tea and biscuits than any other B&B I've been to over the past 10 years! It's obvious...

We hugely enjoyed our stay. Cappabhaile is superbly located. Look out the window and see the mountain and the sheep just outside. In the fascinating Burren country. Conor and Margaret are gracious, helpful, informative hosts. Rooms really nice, breakfasts outstanding. We were sorry to leave.

We attended the annual Lisdoonvarna festival and stayed in the wonderful Cappabhaile House, it was around 15 mins from lisdoonvarna itself. When we arrived we were greeted by the lady and we had been booked into a twin room, she took a look at the bookings and seeing it was two girls away for a girlie weekend quickly looked at...

While two nights in this lovely B&B was much too short, we felt like we were treated like old friends rather than just guests. We loved our delicious freshly cooked to order breakfast , which carried us through most of the day. What a warm and inviting place to stay to just relax by the fire or to explore the...

My adult daughter and I stayed 2 nights here on our car trip around south west Ireland. We had only booked a few nights before on the internet in order to see The Cliffs of Mohr then head straight back to Dublin. Our room was lovely, very spacious, with tea, coffee and biscuits ready. The radiators came in very handy...

I booked Cappabhaile house as part of a road trip and admit by the time of arrival I'd quite forgotten what I'd booked. What a surprise therefore to be shown a spacious suite with a lounge area, huge bed and ensuite bathroom complete with some complimentary chocolate bars immediately tempting us to a cup of tea! Breakfast had a huge...

Staff were extremely friendly. Rooms were very clean, roomy and well decorated. The breakfasts we had were delicious, we could add or decline anything, it was no bother. There was free parking and it was so quiet. It would suit families or large groups of friends. There were no single rooms, all the rooms were double twin en-suites and some...

We stayed here for 2 nights, with our friends, as they had stayed before. A wonderful experience. Lovely bedroom, very spacious and clean. Wonderful hosts ,Conor and Margaret made us very welcome. The breakfast menu was extensive and probably the best breakfast we have had at any accommodation we have stayed at. Would recommend cappabhaile to everyone.

Our room was very large and spacious and full of character. It was very comfortable - a wonderful big bed with lovely bedlinen and a peaceful view of fields, hills and sheep - bliss! Cappabhaile House is well set out and deceptively large. Our host suggested a concert at the local church the evening that we stayed, part of Burren...
