We stayed here as a group of 23 hillwalkers of mixed ability and everyone enjoyed it. The hotel was very comfortable and we ate really delicious breakfasts and dinners. Andrew and all his staff were so friendly and couldn't do enough for us. We were supplied everyday with a comprehensive packed lunch to take with us on our walks. Inishboffin...

A great base for exploring the gorgeous island. The Murrays are great hosts, the food is always excellent and there's always good craic in the bar. It doesn't matter what the weather forecast is like; pack your waterproofs and enjoy a relaxing but fun break away from reality.

Had the most wonderful experience staying in the Doonmore Hotel. A small family run hotel on Inishbofin with incredible views out over the sea. From the moment we arrived the staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome and at home. Breakfast should not be missed with something to suit everyone to set you up for the...

We stayed here as a family for the first time in the 1970's when I was little enough to enjoy donkey rides. That was before the electricity arrived, or cars, or the proliferation of plastic rubbish on the beaches, in the harbour and hedgerows that the islanders seem to ignore. That's progress I suppose. The hotel is lovely, and the...

I miss Inishbofin since staying at the Doonmore with friends. Such a lovely place with the best service. Andrew and the staff are brilliant! Delicious food and such amazing music BOTH nights in the bar. Really cosy room and bed. Friends rooms were great too. Amazing views. Can't wait to go back. Just lovely.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay. Our room was very comfortable; great food and excellent, friendly service. Doonmore is ideally located on the western end of the island,15 minutes from the 'slightly' busier harbour area, overlooking the sea. At weekends you'll be treated to a few tunes, while you watch the sun set. Simply beautiful. Already planning my next visit!

Doonmore1, Manager at Doonmore Hotel, responded to this review

Dear Fergus G Thank you for your review but I'm afraid that, apart from being difficult to understand, it is misleading. I am not sure if you have the right island at all. This is one of 3 hotels on the island, not the only one, the other two being The Dolphin and Inishbofin House. You can get a drink...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Murrays' Doonmore Hotel, the most westerly island hotel in Ireland, was built in 1969 and has been owned and managed by the Murray family ever since. We pride ourselves on our hands on approach to customer service so you will be dealing with a member of the family at most stages of your stay. We care about what we do because it is not just a job, it is our life. Our friendly staff are superbly trained and they know that our raison d'etre is to ensure that every customer, from a child ordering a hot chocolate to a group of adults staying for a week, deserves only the best service possible. Our hotel and bar food is famous for its freshly caught seafood and its consistently high quality and value for money. The accommodation is clean, comfortable and warm. The atmosphere is welcoming, homely and relaxed. It is no accident that we have a large percentage of repeat business stretching back to the early days. The proof of the pudding is in the eating (and we bake all our own!) So come out and visit and experience Murrays' Doonmore Hotel for yourselves. Andrew Murray ... more   less

“Room was as one would expect and included tea making facilities. Towels were changed each day and there was never a problem if anything extra was needed. There was a wide selection for breakfast which was also first class. I would highly recommend a stay at this hotel on your visit to Inisbofin.”
