On this page you'll find links to websites and adresses we specially would like to recommend:


B&B Fisherman's Rest (Doolin).

Danny and Mairéad opened their bed and breakfast accommodation in Doolin in 1995. Now a family of five, their three daughters lend a helping hand with the running of their Bed & Breakfast. While Mairéad works outside the home for a few days a week, Danny has assumed his role as a houseman admirably. He was a fisherman for many years, just like his forefathers, hence the name for the Bed & Breakfast. We'd like to think of Danny and Mairéad as the most adorable couple on the planet.
