We were lucky to have stayed at St Anthony's B&B earlier this month and very much appreciated the owners' hospitality. This B&B is nicely decorated and the made-to-order breakfast was wonderful. Our room was bright, clean, and comfortable. If we ever find ourselves in Doolin again, we'll definitely stay here. Please be aware that this facility does not accept credit cards, but O'Connor's Pub next door has an ATM, so this really is no problem. And the pub is the hottest spot in town!
The owner of this b&b was extremely rude to the point of telling my 3yo and 2 other children to "F#$k off" because they were climbing on the very safe fence outside the establishment. The views and access to the beatiful beach are great but i wouldn't recommend this place for families with young children. I was horrified at his attitude and cursing in front of my kids... Im completely disgusted.
Bridget was lovely and very welcoming. The room was ok if slightly basic with no TV. Great location with a big private car park. Breakfast was nice with a big pot of tea! Close to the local pub (50 yds away) which serves great food and has a traditional Irish music band on most nights. A nice stay we had before moving on to Galway!
Greetings from Bear and Hen! We had the pleasure of staying at St. Anthony’s lovely B&B in July of this year. The time spent with the owners, Bridget and John, their lovely home, the beauty of Doolin, the food, and the most incredible local people, restaurants and shops left us with many beautiful and lasting memories. We cannot go a day without finding ourselves longing to return. Our dream for visiting Ireland was to find a treasure—a small village with welcoming people and a true Irish experience. When arriving in Dublin, we found the city lovely with great people and food, enchanting cabbies, and astounding historical treasures hidden in the beautiful city. But deep in our hearts we knew there was this incredible experience yet to be found and one we envisioned for many years. On our third day in Dublin, we rented a car and started our journey across the Republic to the small town of Doolin on the west coast of Ireland. All our research pointed to Doolin as the home of Irish music. Not the type of Irish music you hear in American Irish pubs but the real soulful sound of Ireland. We found a small group of locals every night that brought a synthesis of extraordinary musical talent to share the very heart of Irish music. We had previously reserved a room at St. Anthony’s B&B (several months in advance as July is the height of the tourist season). When arriving, we checked in, unpacked, and began our tour of the town. We ended up at Fitzpatrick’s pub followed by O’Conner’s and being early, found seats at the pubs. The music began to play—small groups of community people young to wise. Our hearts felt truly alive! We decided on Hop House 13 for our selection of brew. T’was incredible like the Rockshore Irish lager in Dublin. The excellent lager and beautiful instrumental music took us away! We finally found Ireland—the country we dreamed of! For anyone traveling to Ireland, don’t miss an opportunity to visit Doolin! Enjoy the exceptional hospitality of St. Anthony’s B&B, Bridget and John, and the local people and places the village has to offer. We have travelled extensively. No other county’s hospitality can compare. Most significantly, get into the real culture! Enjoy the B&B experience! Make a reservation at St. Anthony’s B&B. You will not be disappointed! And don’t forget to ask for the breakfast porridge—incredibly creamy and delightfully tasty! (I told you Bridget I was going to write about your award winning porridge!) St. Anthony’s B&B provides you the privacy you need, great accommodations, a lovely conversation with your hosts, and the peace and calm for a great night’s sleep. Cheers!…
Situated on the main street, next to a great pub, this is a nice place to stay. Very friendly owners and a good breakfast. The shower had good hot water. Bridget was very helpful both before we arrived and during our stay,.
The manager of the bed and breakfast was unnessecariy rude and mean spirited in an otherwise lovely part of the world. My gf and I were scolded and reprimanded for walking in front of the property while waiting for our tour bus which had broken down nearby. His reaction to the situation was over the top given the circumstance.
We stayed there two nights. The location is great. Near a good pub. On the road to the ferry station (1km). Next to shopping. The room was quiet and had a good shower. Breakfast was also good. They do not take credit cards. She was very nice and helpful. If I went to a Doolin again I would stay there.
Just back home after a fortnight tour of EIRE and ULSTER. I spent a couple of nights at this B&B between 15 and 17 of July and it was a lovely experience, indeed. I was with my wife and a friend of ours. The owners, our bedrooms and breakfast were all first class. The accomodation is very near the pier where you can get your boat for a trip to Aran Islands and a visit to the Cliffs of Moher and surroundings. Highly recommeded.
Have been there for the second time (first in 2009). Bridet's charm's stayed the same, accomodation has become better, i. e. choice of different breakfasts. Felt very comfortable an if we can't resist our desire for Gus O'Connor's once more we hope you have a vacancy once again :-). Thanks for the recommendation 'Malahide', Dublin Bay
The hosts were absolutely lovely, very helpful. The location was great. The room was very nice, clean. There was a lot of attention everywhere. We had a great time at this Bed and Breakfast. We recommend it to everybody.
