Cead mile failte - A thousand welcomes to Moloney House! Moloney House is a 30-year-old purpose built bed and breakfast in the heart of Doolin. Our home is situated on a 50-acre beef suckler family farm and overlooks the 500-year-old ruins of Doonmacfelim Castle to the rear of the home across the Aille River. Moloney House underwent an extensive renovation in the winter of 2018 in the guest rooms and en suites as well as the guest sitting room and dining room.

During the day, enjoy walking to Doolin Pier and touring the Aran Islands by ferry. You may catch sight of our playful resident dolphin, Dusty, in the harbour or the beautiful coastal birds landing on the shoreline. Or if you want to really stretch your legs try the Cliffs of Moher coastal walk (8 km from Doolin to the Visitor Centre) and soak in the stunning landscape and views where the Atlantic Ocean meets the rugged coastline. Explore the Burren National Park and its breathtaking walking trails winding through layers of limestone populated with beautiful flowers and plants

And do not let rainy weather dampen your visit. Explore the Doolin Cave, home to the longest free-hanging stalactite in the Northern Hemisphere (7.3 meters / 23 feet). Stop into one the local small businesses - stocked with Irish made gifts, knitwear, foods and sweets. Some locals may say it's "a day for the stool" so visit with them at one of the four pubs within walking distance of our home for a pint of Guinness and a piping hot bowl of seafood chowder with homemade brown bread. Or if you prefer to stay in for a bit of peace and quiet, please relax in the guest sitting room in front of the warm turf fire .

However you choose to enjoy Doolin and the surrounding area, we hope Moloney House reminds you of the comforts of home.
