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.

Riverside Cottage in the beautiful town of Doolin is a charming bed and breakfast within walking distance to everything. The hostess Breda and her daughter Helena were wonderful hosts. The accommodations were sparkling clean, extremely comfortable and homey, spacious and bright. There are just three guest rooms and my family occupied two of the rooms, both with spacious en-suite bathrooms. The grounds are immaculate with beautiful gardens and spacious parking. There were treats in our rooms each day, delicious full Irish breakfasts and other yummy choices all made by Breda and delivered by Helena. They are a very sweet mother daughter team. This is truly a family business. Ann, yes another daughter, was fantastic at all the email communications. Booking was easy, questions were answered promptly and courteously and in a way that I felt like I knew her. Ann understood completely when I mentioned a personal health need regarding avoiding fragranced cleansers and artificial air fresheners and accommodated my needs perfectly. Although I did not meet Ann in person due to her personal commitments, I know she is as friendly and warm as her mom and sister. Added extra…even got to meet one of Breda’s sons. Delightful family, wonderful experience all round. I highly recommend Riverside Bed and Breakfast and Breda and her family. When traveling to the beautiful Cliffs of Moher and Doolin area, check out Riverside Cottage. You will be glad you did!

There were 6 of us in our group, so we had the whole property to ourselves. While we were only there for 1 night, we would have liked to stay longer.

Riverside Cottage is located right in the middle of Doolin-- a one-minute walk (if you walk slowly!) to O'Connor's Pub just to give you an idea. More importantly, is the fact that it has ample parking something of a necessity in Doolin.

Ann, the host, was quick to answer emails that we had before our arrival and once there, she was very attentive and cooked us a wonderful Irish breakfast in the morning.

During our holiday, we stayed at 5 other AirBnB's and we felt that Riverside Cottage was the best equipped, most comfortable and clean BnB we stayed at.

When we find ourselves in the area again, we will surely be staying at Riverside Cottage!

What a wonderful Irish welcome you will receive here! Ann and her Mum ( and if you’re lucky a smile or two from Holly!) greeted us with the broadest smiles and the warmest of welcomes. Their B&B is immaculately clean, bright and beautifully homely. Our rooms were spotless with the most amazingly comfortable beds. The bathrooms had everything you needed and a great shower. Ann walked us around the rooms, showed us the breakfast room as well as a cosy sitting room with a stunning dresser (she will tell you a story about it if you ask!). We chatted as if we’d known each other for years! She gave us advice about what to do, where to eat etc and even about our onward journey. Breakfast was just perfect. The table was beautifully laid, food served promptly ( preordered the night before) and tasted delicious- the best pancakes ever, Ann! We reluctantly left to move on to our next destination, but we will cherish our brief but perfect stay at Riverside Cottage, Doolin. Make sure you don’t miss this little gem… thank you Ann

July 2021. Following a great welcome we were shown to our spacious clean beautifully decorated en-suite bedroom. We felt free to ask any question and were well informed about local amenities. Despite being right in the centre of Doolin it was really quiet and the beds were ultra comfortable. Breakfast was excellent and we really appreciated use of the carpark for a few hours after check-out. Overall an exceptional B&B which we would highly recommend. Siobhan; Cork

What a peaceful way to spend some of my last days in Ireland. Breeda and her daughters do a lovely job offering travel advice, providing wonderful breakfasts, and keeping things tidy. They were patient when my arrival time changed (and changed again due to traffic delays), and were always willing to re-supply my room with anything I needed (water, towels, etc). The bed was so comfortable and it was possibly the roomiest shower I’ve had in all my Ireland travels. It was a little on the pricier side in comparison to other B & Bs I’ve stayed in, but seemingly in line with Doolin prices and worth the extra cost. I would stay here again without a second thought.

We had a delightful stay at Riverside Cottage. Breda and Ann were thoughtful hosts and made sure we had everything we needed, including information about the ferry, restaurants, visiting Aran Islands, and more. Breakfast was scrumptious, the room was very comfortable, and the location was highly convenient.

We stayed one night in this delightful BnB and were welcomed by Bred who made us very welcome. Bred was born in the house which has been tastefully renovated and is very comfortable. The BnB has plenty of off street parking and is a short walk to local pubs and shops. Our room was very comfortable with all necessary facilities, and the breakfast was delicious. Bred and her daughter Anne gave us lots of useful tips about the area
We would definitely stay here again and recommend this BnB to other travellers.

Ann and Breda were genuine and welcoming hosts at this BB, so we stayed 4 nights in total. They adjusted their breakfast menu to suit tastes and offered great local advice. Small touches like bottles of water, fruit on request and any assistance needed was given. We will return to this friendly, warm and spotlessly clean accommodation in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay at Riverside Cottage. The rooms are quaint and nicely decorated. Ann was a wonderful host and gave us tips on the area and things to see (we're so glad she encouraged us to visit the Aran Islands). Cliffs of Moher were a 15 minute drive away, Aran Island boats were a 15 minute drive, and we were able to walk 10 minutes to dinner.

We stayed at the Riverside Cottage during a weekend visit to Doolin. Ann was so quick to respond when I reached out for details, and was a wonderful hostess during our stay. The location was absolutely perfect, within a 2-15 minutes walk of everything we needed, from bars to restaurants to other sight seeing access points. The room was very clean and spacious, and the home-cooked breakfasts in the morning were the icing on the cake. Would definitely recommend staying here when visiting Doolin.

I would not suggest trying to roll a bag from the other end of Doolin you must take into consideration the terrain condition of the road and don’t forget the weather!
