Dolmen Lodge
Ranked #12 of 16 Ballyvaughan B&B and Inns
Reviewed 26 July 2009

This B&B has an impressive location - with beautiful views of the burren landscape and down to the bay.

The room/bathroom, although clean, wasn't the most spacious but it fulfilled our needs. The shower in the bath (room 4) isn't suited for anyone over 1.70m as it is in the eaves of the house and you wouldn't be able to stand upright.

The Irish breakfast was good but the poached on toast was somewhat rubbery.. Although they are not the easiest to cook.

We were welcomed by Mary's son who gave us a good recomendation for a walk. The directions were spot on. Mary was equally helpful the following day when providing tips/recommendations for where to visit on the Burren.

Reviewed 31 May 2008

We recently returned from a 3-night stay at Dolmen Lodge & had an excellent time there. Mary Kyne & her husband are charming people, very welcoming & helpful, and even cracked open a bottle of wine for us on our last night, with accompanying snacks. Their house is modern, spotlessly clean and comfortable and is surrounded by magnificant views. The breakfast was very good and well presented. Despite our 05:00 departure Mary had left out everything we needed for breakfast. Not expensive & excellent value.
