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.

Ann welcomed us from the back garden when we missed the turn and that was just the beginning of incredible hospitality and warmth. She was great about where to find music, where to eat, and what we might do the next day.Breakfast was delicious and included a wave from the kitchen from adorbs Holly and lovely gran, Breda. Comfy bed, quiet location and a lovely stay. Little touches like a few sweets by the kettle were just an extra bit of attention. Can't recommend Riverside more highly!

We arrived to a warm welcome and a great explanation of what was in the area. The hosts are all extremely friendly and go out of their way to make sure you're having a good stay. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was fantastic. The hotel is smack dab in the center of what you'll want to be doing.

If we ever find ourselves in the area again we will return to this B&B.

Oh my gosh…Ann and Breda were the most gracious hosts. They made sure we were comfortable everyday. Not only did they give suggestions for local fare, but took the time to provide information about stops and towns to visit on a day trip to Galway. Every morning they asked what we’d like for breakfast. As we are light eaters in the morning, they went out of their way to make scones especially for us. So adorable 🥰

Riverside cottage provided comfortable lodging in the quaint setting of Doolin. This was an ideal setting with shopping, restaurants and pubs on your doorstep. The scenic Burren and the Cliffs of Moher are close by and worth a visit.
Breta and her daughters were great hostesses and made our stay a welcome and comfortable one .
Breakfast was delicious with porridge, cereals, yogurt , brown bread fruits and marmalade. A great start to the day!
I would encourage anyone visiting Doolin to be guests at this wonderful B and B.

Riverside Cottage was the perfect lodging for our visit to Doolin. Great location to pubs and shops. Cliffs of Moher trail is nearby as well as the ferry to Aran Islands. My husband and I walked everywhere. After active days outdoors, we slept well each night on comfortable beds, and enjoyed all the amenities of the en-suite bathroom. The made to order breakfast each morning was delicious. What really made it extra special was the host, Breda, and her family. As a life-long resident of Doolin, she had wonderful stories from her family history.

This was our fourth stay and it never disappoints. We always start our Ireland vacations here and we know that any "new" companions we bring along will find Doolin and the Riverside Cottage just perfect. Its location is ideal for Aran Island ferries, adorable pitch and putt, and O'Connor's pub. But our favorite thing to do is to walk out the door and head up to the Cliffs (of Moher) the back way which is much less crowded and just as beautiful. Breda, her daughters Ann and Helena know all about the area and are able to find any information or reserve tables at some of the area pubs where you will be treated very well. Did I mention that it's clean, comfortable, and serves a delicious breakfast?

I would highly recommend this charming B&B in Doolin. It is very clean and extremely comfortable. On site parking and is all on one level. Ideally located near local pubs. Ann and Breda are extremely helpful and friendly. We were only here for one night and they made us very welcome. Ann went out of here way to return a small amount of money to me in Australia when she realised that she had mistakenly overcharged us after we had left. She went to great lengths to do so! - thanks so much Ann! Would definitely stay at Riverside again if we are passing through again.

We had a wonderful experience staying at Riverside Cottage in Doolin. Its location is perfect -- literally a couple minutes' walk from the Cliffs of Moher walking trail. Its also a couple minutes' walk from O'Connor's pub, a festive place to have a pint and some food after a full day of walking/sightseeing. Our rooms were clean and comfortable Breakfast in the morning was fantastic. This is an ideal place to stay when visiting Doolin. Thank you, Breda and Ann!

We really enjoyed staying at Riverside Cottage B and B. Ann was a wonderful host, and the location was terrific. It was really nice to be able to walk to the ferry to get to the Aran Islands and the Cliffs of Moher. It was nice not to have to drive while we were in Doolin. Also, our host introduced us to a great Cliffs of Moher guide, Pat, who gave us a wonderful, small, personal tour. We also all loved the breakfasts. I really enjoyed the Irish soda bread Breda Meehan made, and my daughter said the pancakes were the best she's ever had.

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!
