I stayed in this hotel in summer 06 for three nights. The view and location and simply stunning. Standing at the front door you can see out across the Galway bay and see Iniseer, the smallest of the Aran Islands. The hotel is old and in existance since the 1700s, they have modernised of course but it still holds a real old world charm with cosy, country type bedrooms and a quaint bar and restaurant. The room was clean and cosy and the food was excellent. Craic in the bar is excellent, we met a great mix of nationalities and were up till the early hours singing folk songs...:)

Doolin village is 5 minutes walk with several other pubs and restaurants, Doolin harbour then is where you can sail out to the Aran Islands and Galway is about 45 minutes drive. Lovely staff and my favourite hotel in Ireland so far!

Aran View House Hotel Doolin Overview

Built in the Georgian period in 1736, Aran View Hotel stands on a hill on the coast road and commands one of the finest views of the wild Clare coastline. Facing Aran View Hotel are the beautiful Aran Islands, which are just 7 miles from Doolin. To the north is the famous Burren landscape of limestone and exotic wild flowers. To the south are Doolin Pier and the beginning of the imposing Cliffs of Moher that jut into the wild Atlantic Ocean. Relax in the lounge bar beside a cosy turf fire with a Guinness or Irish whiskey. The view across to the Cliffs of Moher and Galway Bay is wonderful and in the summer evenings the sunset over the Aran Islands is a beautiful sight. The lounges also offer beautiful views of the islands and cliffs. The Burren landscape to the north is famous for its limestone and exotic wild flowers. It is a short drive away and has many historic and prehistoric sights including dolmens, stone forts and burial chambers. If you want to explore the Aran Islands, boats leave from Doolin Pier every day. For the angler, there is both shore fishing and deep-sea fishing. Keen golfers can enjoy the top-class golf course at nearby Lahinch. Horse riding and surfing are also available nearby.
