Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Spent a beautiful week in BallyV House and was sorry to leave. Patrick had gone to great effort to provide every comfort and making our stay as pleasant as possible. The kids loved the 55 inch TV and the great outdoors too, (to our surprise!). The mixed-fuel stove in the living room is very homely and there was plenty of fuel supplied. I was impressed with the eclectic mix of fiction and non-fiction books in the library and spent many happy hours in the reclining armchair next to the books. Patrick is an exceptional host, and tour-guide, who has spent years gathering the best and most helpful information to make your stay in North Clare outstanding. Patrick always knows where the best live music is. Stay here! You won't be disappointed!

The house is in a beautiful area with gorgeous views and a short walk to the local village with pubs and restaurants. The host, Helen, is so nice and makes you feel right at home - really informative making sure you get the best out of your stay and money. We recommend McDermotts pub in the village for food.

Ballyvoe House far exceeded our expectations. The property was in a beautiful position, with fantastic views looking out onto the Aran Islands. The accommodation was spotless and catered for all our needs. Helen, our host, was the most welcoming of people and couldn't have been kinder, more helpful, and actually a super cook. Best breakfast ever but we were treated to home made scones, cake and tea as well. Over and above. We had gone down to the local pub and Helen very kindly gave us a lift and even though we had insisted we walk back later that evening, the weather changed and Helen phoned the pub to get a message across to us that she would happily come down to pick us up when we were ready. Five stars is not enough. Highly recommended. Thanks Helen for everything. John, Alison, Louise and Tom

I loved all the information she gave regarding visiting both the cliff and the island. I'm not sure if she does this for every guest but she baked the best scones. She is amazing, runs a super clean B and B. She is down the street from some pubs, and provides you a flash light and safety jackets in case you walk back in the dark ( She really loves her customers). Please call her ahead of time she has a lot of insight on traffic, short cuts, what to see and when. The B and B is quiet, you have no other neighbors next to you have nothing to block the views. She has a great sitting and dining area that lets you take it all in. I would definitely come back !

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Helen was a wonderful hostess! Her fresh scones were a wonderful treat as we arrived. The bathroom and room were impeccably clean and the bed comfy. Helen provided helpful information as to what to see an how to avoid busy bus traffic. She provided a delicious breakfast as well. The ocean view from the breakfast room is beyond words. We shall definitely stay with Helen again!

Stayed at Ballyvoe House on a short visit to Doolin.We were warmly welcomed by the hostess Helen and had some tea and home baked scones on arrival in the dining room which had the most wonderful view. Helen gave us some great travel tips and recommended a place to eat. The food was great and we also got to hear live music. Our room was super clean. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was excellent with my dietary requirements catered for. We are sorry we didn't get to stay for longer and would definitely return here in the future.

From the moment we arrived until the moment we left, Helen was a wonderful hostess! Her fresh scones were a wonderful treat as we arrived after a long day of traveling on the opposite side of the road on narrow roads! The bathroom and room were impeccably clean and the bed comfy. It is a short walk into town to experience yummy food and amazing music! Helen provided helpful information as to what to see and do. She provided a scrumptious breakfast as well. I would definitely stay with Helen again!

We loved staying at Ballyvoe house. The house was immaculate, and this was by far the best shower we had during our entire trip to Ireland (the towels were so fluffy!). Helen was fantastic and gave really great recommendations of things to do in the area. Breakfast was great and nothing beats the view!

The ocean view from our room, and the breakfast room, overlooks farm fields and the Cliffs of Mohr. Helen, our host, was excellent in providing our breakfast and local information. We were able to relax fully in the comfort of her B & B. We were warmly greeted and you will be too!
