B&B in Doolin

We will be landing in Shannon after an all night flight, and we want to go to Doolin for the first night and hear some music. Since we will be tired and not used to driving on the other side of the road, we would like to find stay in a B&B where we can walk to the pubs without having to worry about doing any more driving for the day. Anyone have any suggestions? And what about the pubs? Any favorites, or should we try to get to all of them. Thanks!

Doolin is a good spot for your first night. It's only about a 1 1/2 hour drive from Shannon.

We stay at Daly's House B&B in Doolin. Sea View also gets very good reviews.

There are only 3 pubs. O'Connor's has music every night. It's a great place, but it's a major tourist destination and can get pretty crowded. McDermott's and McGann's are near one another at the other end of the village. They're often not quite as crowded as O'Connor's, but it really depends on the night and who's playing where. To be fair, you really should try all three.

Hi Audie,
We stayed at the Seaview B & B last May and were delighted with the house. It is located just on the other side of the little bridge facing the pub. We had a great time in all the pubs, singing and drinking Guinness. Enjoy!

I've also heard good things about Churchfield B&B which is located at the McGann's/McDermott's end of town and an easy walk to both.

Stayed at a b&b called Fisherman's ? just up the lane from O'Connors. Nice accommodation for a very reasonable price. Nice couple with young children. Down side is that although close to O'Connors it would be a good walk to McGanns, which is a favorite of mine as it has outside seating for nice nights. Try Doolin website for this b&b. Enjoy yourselves and good choice to start out with.

We stayed at Cullinan's last year and it was the nicest place we stayed at the whole time. It's about a five minute walk to the pubs. It has a very popular restaurant. If you choose Cullinan's though, make sure you ask to be placed away from the public rooms as they can be noisy until the restaurant closes.

We were at Cullinan's last May. The room was exceptional. The food was wonderful.
We were in the ground floor room next to the sitting room. We didn't have a problem with noise. Maybe it was a quiet night.

I was in that same room last June. The problem that night for us was that due to overflow from the restaurant, diners were served their coffee and dessert in the sitting room right outside our room and they were noisy and didn't leave until 10:30-11 pm and we were desperate to get to sleep! Otherwise, I think any room on the other side of the house would be fine. Cullinan's had the nicest beds, linens, etc.

I stayed at the Harbourview B&B last September. The rooms are beautiful, parking for your car. It is up on the hill, but the drive down to the town is easy enough!!

Thanks for all of your great suggestions, we will definitely be staying in Doolin and will be looking into the B&B's that you mentioned. Looking forward to hearing some great music and having a few Guinness!
