Meet Your Hosts
Anthony & Deirdre
Anthony Moloney was just nine years old when the sod was turned on this Doolin doozy. What was a hostel in 1986 has since evolved into a 22-bed country house and restaurant he and Deirdre, run with tireless energy, creativity and commitment to their community. They understand the importance of innovation and reinvestment in hospitality, and during Covid was no different. They seized the opportunity to open a new restaurant, under chef Tomás Walsh, with a firm focus on local goodies — from ‘Big Burren Breakfasts’ that see tiered trays full of treats replace pre-pandemic buffets, to dinner and brunch menus stacked with local cheese, meats and seafood (“We’ve got the best produce in the world,” Anthony says, “so why not use it?”). In a staffing crisis, their #LifeinDoolin recruitment campaign is another reason they fit into our Fab 50 — offering year-round wages, affordable housing with discounted rent, staff meals, training and career progression paths as they recruit the hospitality stars of the future.
Stay & Dine
Experience the Wild Atlantic Way
From traditional music and trail-walking to outdoor adventure sports and a cornucopia of culture – you’ve got it all right here in Doolin. Ours is a small West coast village with a mighty big heart – and from the moment you arrive and feel the fresh Atlantic breeze on your face, you’ll want to get out there and start discovering. Caving, cycling, surfing, hiking, horse-riding and so much more are all part of this special experience. We’re home to one of Ireland’s most famous signature points – the breathtaking Cliffs of Moher, The Burren and a gateway to the Aran Islands, for a taste of old Ireland at its most beautiful. Our guests can enjoy discounted rates on a selection of local activities and attractions that we are partnered with. Come & experience the Burren region.

To ensure your stay with us is as relaxing as it is invigorating, we’ve thought of everything. While we offer hotel-standard rooms and facilities – from a dedicated reception team to cosy café – we’re all about home-from-home comfort and hospitality with a generous heart.

Taste the Burren
A major part of your stay at Doolin Inn should be the food. We are inspired by The Burren’s natural produce and scenery, to deliver exceptional dining with great flavour.
