Location

Value
Moloney House is a 25-year-old purpose built bed and breakfast in the heart of Doolin. The home is situated on a 50-acre beef suckler family farm and overlooks the 500-year-old ruins of Doonmacfelim Castle to the rear of the home across the Aille River. There are six en-suite guestrooms and a comprehensive made-to-order breakfast menu is served every morning. The home is a 5-10 minutes walk from pubs, restaurants and shops. It is only a 5 minute walk to the start of the coastal trail that takes you to the Cliffs of Moher (approximately an 90 minute walk). It is a 20 minute walk to the Doolin Pier where you can take a ferry to the Aran Islands. We hope you enjoy your time in Doolin and your stay at Moloney House!

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.

Our family loved our two night stay at Maloney House with Frank and Mary Ellen. We had four rooms and each were very nicely done and very comfortable. We wanted a true Irish B andB experience and this is it! Charming hosts, fabulous made to order breakfasts, and even a laundry service which was great. We enjoyed our friendly chats with our hosts…so delightful. Doolin is a wonderful area and we had a great trip to Inisheer in the Aran Islands. Great restaurants nearby…check out The Ivy Cottage! Delicious!

If Frank and Mary Ellen's place (Moloney House) is available book it quick and satay for a few nights! You will not be disappointed on any level. This is a lovely, lovely guest house. It is 100% clean (not one bit of dirt) and comfortable. I was lucky enough to see all the rooms because right after I checked in a group of 10 traveling together from MN checked in and they all wanted to compare rooms. Each room is done beautifully and includes beautiful bedding and towel, a kettle, water, and a lovely view. The breakfasts are made to order and Frank trained as a chef so it was absolutely delicious. Not one thing overlooked. There is plenty to do in this area so treat yourself to a few nights at the Moloney House.

Great location, close to pubs and restaurants. There is a large, comfortable shared sitting room, with plenty of windows for natural lighting. Beds were comfortable, plenty of room for 3 of us. Large, clean bathroom with nice thick towels. Breakfast was delicious! Had my favourite on the menu- French Toast- made perfectly!

Seriously this place was the best accommodation I got to stay in for my entire tour! The location is absolutely perfect - only a few minutes walk to all the bars and it’s honestly just the prettiest town! The hosts were so organised and the breakfast was out of this world great. The sitting room open to all guests had a beautiful fire place that was perfect to all sit together after the long day of activities we had. But the biggest thing to note? This place is crazy spotless clean. Not a speck of dust or marks to be seen. Overall absolutely fantastic. So disappointed that I could only stay a night! Do yourself a favour and spend a while at this great accommodation and pretty town.

Staying at the Moloney House in Doolin was a perfect slice of Ireland. The house is clean and the rooms are classical in style, and the hosts could not have been more kind or accommodating. The house is nestled in Doolin which is a quaint town by the water just a 15 min drive from the Cliffs of Moher. It’s a 5 min walk away from a couple of local restaurants and pubs that make it the perfect Irish experience. Would highly recommend staying here.

Terrific B&B. Wonderful welcome, great recommendations, really comfortable beds, on-site parking, very tasty breakfast! Frank and his wife really know how to do a B&B the right way! Easy walking to restaurants/pubs/shops. Four minute drive to pier. We should have stayed an extra day to walk the cliffs!

Excellent location. Friendly and helpful hosts. Awesome breakfast. Ample parking. The room is large, comfortable and the ensuite bathroom is of good size. We hiked the cliff walk for 5 miles to the visitor center and it took the bus [Route 350] back. Gus O'Connor's Pub is 5 minutes walk and Anthony's restaurant is across the street. Both offering live music Doolin is a very small Quint down with 3 pubs and a few restaurants. Limited public transportation and no cabs. You do need a car to go there and get around. But a beautiful town to stay and spend some time

This B&B is charming - very comfortable, spotlessly clean, and well-located. Mary Ellen and Frank take excellent care of their guests and the breakfasts are phenomenal! Plus, they are a fascinating couple to talk to. It was hands down the best place we stayed in Ireland!
