Fodor's Review

This extensively modernized 1736 house on 100 acres of farmland offers magnificent views in nearly every direction: the Aran Islands to the west, the Cliffs of Moher to the south, and the gray limestone rocks of the Burren to the north. The interior is decorated with antique touches; some rooms have four-poster beds and all have Georgian reproduction furniture. You can savor the view from the bar or the residents' lounge. Don't miss the sunset over the Aran Islands, which

can be spectacular. It's on the coast road in the Fanore direction, about a 10-minute walk north from Doolin village.
