The location of Aran View House Hotel is really beautiful. Staff was friendly. The room we stayed in was outdated and very small. For us the bed was too small (1.80 and 1.97m). We would not stay here again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Aran View Country House Hotel, built in the georgian period, in 1736, stands on a hill on the coast road commanding one of the finest views of the wild Clare coastline. Facing the Aran View Hotel, lie the beautiful Aran Islands just seven miles from Doolin. To the North is the famous Burren landscape and exotic wild flowers. Looking South is the Doolin pier and the begining of the imposing Cliffs of Moher jutting out into the wild Atlantic Ocean. One will never tire of these views of an ever-changing landscape of greens and blues. Each room is indivudally decorated keeping the Georgian feel as much as possible. You can enjoy a relaxing drink each evening in the lounge bar, while watching some of the more amazing sunset. You can also enjoy Fresh Scones, tea/coffee in the bar each evening. We assure both new and old guest and warmest of hospitality and relaxation, during you stay at the Aran View Country House Hotel. ... more   less
