The Cappabhaile House is ideally located to explore the Burren. Our host, Connor, was a fountain of information on the area and helped us plan a simply fantastic day touring around and visiting many interesting sights plus Irish step dancing in a nearby town that night. Our room was very large. Breakfasts were very good and we were surprised with...

My trip was in search of relatives dead or alive. I was prepared to spend endless hours in the Clare Library or Heritage Center pouring over old papers and records. Thanks to Conor, I met people most willing to help as well as possible relatives. And each morning Margaret would make us laugh as we enjoyed a different and delicious...

Everything about this B&B is just right. Our room was comfortable, spacious, and lovely. Breakfasts included selections for every appetite and were generous and delicious. The service was perfect -- warm and welcoming. The location ideal for visiting many local and regional attracftions. The decor throughout is gracious and cozy. We will return -- many times, we hope.

Cappabhaile House is perfectly situated to be home base for exploring the Burren and the rest of County Clare.

One of the highlights of our trip to Ireland was our three-night stay at Cappabhaile B&B in Ballyvaughan. The owner, Conor, is an incredible host, who greeted us warmly and was attentive to our every need while we were there. Unlike your usual B&B, this one is all on one floor, and the lovely rooms are huge. Outside our window...

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was a fantastic experience. They had an impromptu Irish music session one night that we truly enjoyed. There is a billiards room that was a nice diversion as well. The breakfasts were huge and well prepared. It was a truly memorable experience. Highly recommended.

On the outside this looks like a big cottage but on the the inside it is like a small hotel and a classy one at that. It is a very welcoming and homely establishment. Our room was delightful, very nicely furnished with a very comfortable king bed and a great view. The breakfast is massive and with loads of choice....
