Excellent experience from start to finish
We chose the Rathbaun Hotel as it stated it was dog-friendly. We didn’t regret it. The staff were so welcoming from the start and when they say they’re dog friendly they actually mean it, even giving us a little dog towel on check in. We had dinner in the hotel and it was lovely. Breakfast really good and again staff were excellent. Live music until 11pm and after that it was so quiet we had great nights sleep. Located right beside the famous matchmakers bar (which was closed due to Covid but a landmark in itself) and a 2 minute walk from Burren Smokehouse. We’ll definitely be back to the Rathbaun Hotel. Thanks so much.
