Conor and Margaret Fahy set the bar in Ballyvaughan. The house is extremely comfortable. From the computer they supply for guest use to the ENORMOUS breakfasts, everything is fabulous. The only point we would make is that the bed in our room was a little hard for us but that's probably just a matter of taste. The rooms are spotlessly... More

Less than a mile south of Ballyvaughan, Cappabhaile House offers comfort and value you'll not find in town. Friendly, helpful owners and great breakfasts in a purpose built B&B right next to the Burren. What more could you ask for?

Lovely B&B with a very family-like atmosphere. The rooms and baths are spacious, spotless and (ours at least) had a great view of the Burren. Very pastoral feeling, yet only a few minutes drive from Ballyvaughan. Margaret and Conor are extremely friendly and helpful. Breakfast was delicious and bountiful, and obviously home cooked to order as we saw Margaret and... More

We almost passed this little gem by. Very glad to have stopped for the night. The basics: We were given a large, cheery room at the back with a view of the pasture and the entertaining cows. Everything clean and perfect. The B&B is a bit out of town. This presented no problem for us at all. Breakfast the next... More

We used Tripadvisor in choosing this place, and the comments from previous folks who stayed there were right on. Getting to choose your breakfast, the time, the little extra's like tea and cookies made the stay quite personal. Having walking paths out the back, and restaurants a short drive made it easy for us. Our 2 children used the wireless... More

We stayed at this B&B for only one night, but we wished we had stayed at least two nights. The location of this B&B makes it the perfect place for a relaxing vacation with views of the mountain and the castle. The cottage is beautifully decorated, the breakfast room is spacious and you really feel you are in the countryside.... More

Room was large, clean, and comfortable. Nothing fancy. Breakfasts were large and filling. B & B is more like a hotel than a typical B & B. Great location for exploring the Burren. Owner very helpful in suggesting restaurants and things to do.

This B&B was a surprise upon entering. From the outside it looks like a small cottage yet once inside, it becomes this lovely small, intimate B&B with great rooms impeccably decorated.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As a large, spacious B&B in the Burren Hills, we offer great rooms and a very extensive breakfast, coupled with peace, quiet and a warm family welcome in a rural environment. We are situated right in the middle of the Burren region, which is a mountainous terrain in North Clare, famous for its flowers, rocks and scenery. The accommodation at Cappabhaile House is unique, with fantastic views of the Burren Hills. We have built on our own 12-acre site, where you can mingle amongst the cattle and take a stroll at your leisure. ... more   less
