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.

I recently stayed here for two nights. The room was strangely decorated, but was very clean. I liked the bathroom a lot, it was very large. The breakfast was fine. The service was fair, but the front desk was not very friendly. My main issue was not the hotel, I would not stay in Doolin again. There is nothing to do.

Aran View is situated a short drive - or long walk - from Doolin's much-hyped trad pubs. That gives it plenty of peace-of-mind factor, but there's little else to recommend. The accommodation is tidy enough, but it has a certain impersonal quality about it. Breakfasts, moreover, are mediocre, situated in a bland-looking dining room. Rooms, too, seem generic and uninspired. Combine this with relatively high rates and the Aran View is not good value

The location is quiet but rather far from town. The rooms were small and rather sparce. Our room was not cleaned the second day until 4:30 PM. Breakfast was good but rather average. This is a nice hotel but there are better places in Doolin available for much less money.
