Travellers' Choice
Murrays' Doonmore Hotel, the most westerly island hotel in Ireland, was built in 1969 and has been owned and managed by the Murray family ever since. We pride ourselves on our hands on approach to customer service so you will be dealing with a member of the family at most stages of your stay. We care about what we do because it is not just a job, it is our life. Our friendly staff are superbly trained and they know that our raison d'etre is to ensure that every customer, from a child ordering a hot chocolate to a group of adults staying for a week, deserves only the best service possible. Our hotel and bar food is famous for its freshly caught seafood and its consistently high quality and value for money. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and warm. The atmosphere is welcoming, homely and relaxed. It is no accident that we have a large percentage of repeat business stretching back to the early days. The proof of the pudding is in the eating (and we bake all our own!) So come out and visit and experience Murrays' Doonmore Hotel for yourselves. Andrew Murray

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.

Great food, friendly staff and perfect location. A very enjoyable stay from our pick-up from the ferry until our departure 3 days later. Spent our time exploring the island on foot, which was relatively easy. The fresh seafood in the Doonmore every evening was a highlight of our trip. We look forward to returning.

Friendly faces great you each morning with a fabulous breakfast and end your day at the warm and inviting pub. Clean, comfortable rooms along with first class service in an unforgettable location.

Dear Michael, Thank you so much for your wonderful review. It is always great to know that our guests enjoy our hospitality so much, as well as enjoying the beautiful island around us. Our aim is simple: to ensure our guests enjoy every minute of their visit from when they they arrive on Inishbofin pier to when they get back on the ferry at the end of their stay. I suspect you will visit us again and I look forward to welcoming you back. Regards, Andrew

Couldn't be happier with our stay at Doonmore hotel. The staff are not only profesional and kind, but go out of their way to ensure customer satisfaction. It is very refreshing to find a family run hotel where the owners are involved in everything from reservation to the pickup at the pier, all the way down to taking breakfast orders. Great to see management taking an active part in their business when a job needs done. Hat's off to Andrew and all the staff at the Doonmore. Inisbofin is a beautiful island and well worth the visit, but it was the warm welcome and hospitality we received at the hotel that means we are sure to return. Go raibh maith agaibh! Frank & family

Dear Frank, Thank you so much for your excellent review. It was lovely to have you and your family staying with us for a few days. I hope you enjoy the rest of the trip home before you head back to the hotter climate you live in...at least you won't suffer from heatstroke while you are on this side of the Atliantic! I look forward to welcoming you all back again on your next trip home. Regards, Andrew

Dear Yvonne, Thank you for your lovely review. It was another very successful Yoga retreat. Our staff are great and get lots of well deserved praise for their hard work and friendly efficient service. All the lovely food and great service wouldn't really matter if the place wasn't spotlessly clean and you correctly give credit where it's due on that front as well. I am sure you will be back having had such an enjoyable first visit. Looking forward to seeing you then, Andrew

This is a wonderful family hotel in a lovely location on a magical island, Inishbofin. It is impeccably run with great service and friendly staff. Andrew and Donna are attentive, thoughtful and helpful hosts. The food is excellent and the hotel is perfect for exploring the island, its history, birds, beaches and rugged cliffs.

Dear David, Thank you so much for your excellent review. I know it was your first visit but I am certain we will have the pleasure of your company again soon. Inishbofin is a great island and it attracts great visitors, people who appreciate it for what it is, who come here to enjoy the outdoors and the simple pleasure of the company of like-minded people in a beautiful place. We see our job as making sure we do everything possible to enhance that experience with excellent hospitality, delicious food and sure if there's a great music session in the evenings as well... See you sometime soon again I hope. Regards, Andrew
