Recently stopped in Lisdoonvarna travelling through and decided to go here for breakfast. Staff were very courteous and polite but in all honesty does this look like a "full Irish Breakfast", let alone being charged €14 for it. The search for the remainder of the...full Irish breakfast did however being us across the beautiful Burren and to the stunning Cliffs of Moher.More

We have just returned from a two night break at Rathbaun Hotel...On arrival we were met by a lovely bubbly and cheerful girl who checked us in showed us to our room and answered our questions....The room was basic but had everything you would need,...but it would be impossible for me to emphasize how clean the room / place is absolutely spotless and 100 per cent Covid complient.....After a peaceful night's sleep we were treated to a lovely breakfast, which we could in no way fault....Overall this Hotel is better than its two star status and without hesitation I would recommend you to stay here you will not be disappointed...As an aside the staff here are excellent, very courteous and polite and are a credit to themselves, their families and employers.More

We specifically look for hotels that are pet friendly as our pet Lurcher Sid travels with us always. I do expect a hotel to be pet friendly if they advertise themselves as that. In Rathbaun John, Lynn and their staff welcomed us with open arms...the room was perfect, really comfortable beds and amazing pillows. John advised us he had towels available for our pet Sid in the event he got wet and we needed to dry him (very thoughtful touch) Breakfast is to die for, out of respect for other clientele pet owners eat breakfast in the bar area and not the breakfast room which is absolutely fine. The reception area reminded me of an old Irish country shop where you could buy sweets, drinks and some stationary it’s lovely to see some of these places are still out there. I look forward to returning as I’m sure Sid does as he received so much attention from all who met him (but then again he is adorable 🐶More

Wonderfully warm welcome. We brought our 6 month old pup with us and we were made to feel at ease. At no stage did I feel that Covid 19 precautions were flaunted or that the environment was unsafe. Fantastic local knowledge which made the best...use of our 3 day trip. The accommodation was spotless and practical. Breakfast was excellent, hearty and cooked to perfection. I really couldn’t fault our stay. Such a friendly family , I would wholeheartedly recommend. Everything you need for a base to exploring Clare.More

After I spoke to Anna about making a dinner reservation, I honestly would have been happy with a crisp sandwich on stale bread such was the welcome and charm I was met with... On the phone! An even greater welcome awaited me at the (social...distancing respectful) Rathbaun... And the food was absolutely delicious! I even changed my order, after my food was served (I changed my mind) and my awkwardness was met with grace and a fab fresh beer battered cod and chips... With a side of the most delicious pickled cucumber 😋 yum Lynn and John, the owners were kind enough to invite me back for the recipe 🙏 Anna was the highlight, I blame the parents 😂 Kind, charming, professional and simply a lovely young woman I'll definitely be back!More

Locals, PJ McDonagh and I had the pleasure of enjoying a meal at the Rathbaun Hotel last evening. Would recommend giving the Hotel a visit as we were treated so well and greeted as we arrived by owners John and Lynn and guided to a...reserved table by their daughter Tara. We were made most welcome and with a great mix of backing music provided by the in house Band " Ceolan " it was hard to leave having enjoyed some great food. Will be returning with some friends to enjoy some more of the atmosphere that is the Rathbaun Hotel. Hope ye have a great season despite the Covid-19 virus. Brendan Cusack.More
