"A group of 12 of us including 3 teenagers stayed here for three nights as a reunion. I was a bit nervous as I though 12 people staying in one house might be a bit difficult and cramped. However the place was fantastic. All the bedrooms were a great size and the kitchen and living room areas were huge. When we arrived the owners had the two stoves lighting so the place felt very warm and homely. It was spotlessly clean and was exactly as described in the literature. 5 minutes walk takes you into Ballyvaughan which has a number of really nice pubs and restaurants. We did a couple of longs walks in the areas around Fanore and the caves. Both were well marked and easy to follow. It was a really enjoyable couple of days. I have no hesitation in recommending both the house and the area."

"This cottage was absolutely wonderful for our family of 6. There was plenty of space (there was even an extra bedroom we didn't use). It had everything we needed - a great kitchen, SPECTACULAR views, even a massage chair in the sun room! You can see the sea from your backyard, along with a beautiful field of flowers, and there are some ruins just next door. The owners were so helpful and came over whenever we had questions or needed any help. Doolin is great little town and has the best live music in the country! We were so happy with our decision to stay here and would do it again in a heartbeat! Hopefully we'll be back one day!"

Fantastic Holiday House. Every Bit As Good As The Pictures Indicate.
"We had a wonderful nine days at the Doonbeg River House in September and we would have loved to stay longer. You can believe everything that is on the website and the reviews below give great accurate details too.
The house is top notch and very comfortable. Our party started with 3, increased to 5, then to 7 (plus 6 mth old twins in travel cots) and then added another 2. Everyone was comfortable with plenty of space and plenty of bed linen, towels and pillows.
The gardens are beautifully maintained and secure so the 3 year olds enjoyed great freedom.
The welcome from Marian was super and she made us feel right at home straight away. Nothing was too much bother.
We had a great holiday and have lovely memories. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending the house to anyone and look forward to our next holiday there."

"We had 19 family members from across the United States gather for a family reunion at Ballyvara House. It was the perfect venue for our large group ranging in age from 85 to 22. There are lots of accommodations that sleep 20 but very few which have 11 bedrooms which allowed all couples and singles to have their own room. We enjoyed the large lounge/bar area each evening and cooked most meals in the large commercial kitchen. The house is close enough to a Doolin that you can walk the path in the back of the house to the pubs and shopping. I would recommend Ballyvara House to anyone looking for a large rental home in County Clare."
