Fodor's Review

A turf fire greets you in the lobby of this unpretentious coaching inn, in the heart of the Burren, which dates from the early 18th century and has become a cheerful, welcoming spot with a reputation for friendliness and good entertainment. The much-expanded village-center hotel has guest rooms that vary in size and shape but all have modern pine furniture and color-coordinated drapes and spreads. Ask for a room overlooking the Burren, and check out the amazingly clear night sky. There's a spacious residents' lounge on the first floor, with an outdoor deck, for further stargazing. The bar hosts live music most nights from June to mid-September, and on Sundays the rest of the year. Ask about special midweek rates.
