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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed at Fiddle + Bow in late Oct 2022 as we were attending a wedding in the nearby Hotel Doolin. The hotel is lovely. The rooms are uniquely styled with reclaimed furniture and have great little touches throughout. We had lunch and a drink before the wedding with friends in Russells and everything was delicious. Breakfast the next morning was also lovely! We will return the next time we are in that part of the country and would highly recommend.

Every single detail about Fiddle and Bow is just wonderful. Such friendly, helpful staff. The owner/ manager is born to oversee this place. The food is out of this world. The furniture is reclaimed, sustainable, up-cycled in the most tasteful setting. The cocktails are to due for. The trad session creates such a fab atmosphere. The little touches are everywhere. The beds are so comfy. The location in Doolin is the centre of the village and walking distance to other pubs. This hotel is worth every penny...definitely coming back.

Great option in Doolin. This is located in a nice place with public transportation options (Bus stop). On the room, it’s well maintained with all required amenities for a family. Overall, everything was well organised for a seamless stay. The experience with restaurant at ground floor is great! Both for our dinner and next day breakfast. The service was on-time, delicious food and nice to spend time over there. The best location of you are planning to visit Cliffs of Moher and other attractions nearby.

The only problem with this hotel is we only booked for 1 night... Located close to the Doolin Cave and Cliffs of Moher this was a fantastic hotel, the staff is super friendly and attentive, the rooms are clean and quiet, they have an attached restaurant for Lunch and Dinner, Breakfast was included with our room and it was very good. Doolin is very small but being close to the Cliffs there are a few places to stay and eat. We arrived a little late in the day so we only had time to eat at one of the places in town so we started off with dinner, Wife had the Sea Bass (on the bone) and I hade the Bacon (pork) chop, bother were very good and filling. Pork was tender and juicy, Sea Bass was cooked perfectly. Breakfast the next morning was more than expected, a full self serve section and cooked to order items as well Super friendly staff Breakfast included Super clean and comfortable rooms Put them at the top of you list when you are in Doolin

The rooms are gorgeous but the food and atmosphere are even better. Top shout out to Jorge, who looked after us so well at lunchtime that we came back for dinner. The chef did wonders with seafood and Jorge brought us bespoke old fashioned cocktails. Can’t wait to come back!

Beautiful and clean rooms with nice view of the Irish countryside. The staff was friendly and helpful. The food was fantastic! They have a beautiful breakfast buffet with hot and cold items. You can also order multiple hot items that are cooked right then. We stayed 3 nights when my daughter got married on the Cliffs of Moher. It is within walking distance to many pubs and shops, and the pier, where you can take a cruise around the cliffs.
