Toomullin House has been welcoming guests for more than 15 years

Your hosts, Chris & Olive, pride themselves in offering traditional Irish hospitality together with all the modern amenities. Toomullin House offers four guest rooms, all ensuite and offering tea and coffee facilities, television, hairdryers and complimentary Wi-Fi. Guests have the use of a lounge and private garden.

For breakfast, guests have their choice from an extensive menu which includes two vegetarian options.

Toomullin House is within easy walking distance of the pretty village of Doolin and the famous music pubs, but far enough away for a quiet night’s sleep. The house looks out over the historic Kiliagh church and fields.

Doolin is located on the Wild Atlantic Way, a fantastic stretch of coastline that will take your breath away. From Doolin Harbor you can take the ferry to the Aran Islands and step back in time. Doolin is on the edge of The Burren, an area of truly outstanding natural beauty. Where, in 300 KM2, almost 80% of Ireland’s floral diversity can be found. In the other direction are the Cliffs of Moher, one of Ireland’s most majestic landscapes.

Chris and Olive will help you with all the practical aspects of your visit; from where to eat to what to see. They know all the "must see" attractions, as well as some gems off the beaten track.

Whether you are looking to spend a couple of nights in Doolin visiting the famous music pubs, or a week in West Clare exploring The Burren and the Wild Atlantic Way, then Toomullin House is the ideal location for your stay.

Chris and Olive look forward to welcoming you to Toomullin House.

  • The WB Yeats Room
    William Butler (WB) Yeats was a poet of
    international reputation who also served
    an Irish Senator for two terms. His
    Summer home was in Gort, a short
    distance from Doolin. It is Yeats who
    wrote “There are no strangers here; Only
    friends you haven’t yet met.” Yeats was
    the Noble Prize literature winner in 1923.
    The WB Yeats Room has a double and
    single bed.
  • The Oscar Wilde Room
    Although Irish born, and from a staunchly
    republican family, Wilde wrote very little
    about Ireland. His spectacular rise and
    public fall, which lead to his early death at
    46, would have made a great novel if it
    were not so sadly true. His writing is
    famous for its sparkling humor and wit;
    “We are all in the gutter, but some of us
    are looking at the stars”. The Oscar Wilde
    room has a double and single bed.
  • Our Dining Room
    Good food, fine clothes ("raiment") and a
    comfortable place to sleep have long been
    part of Irish culture, as in this proverb:

    "May you have food and raiment,
    A soft pillow for your head,
    May you be forty years in heaven,
    Before the devil knows you're dead".
    >An old Irish proverb
  • The James Joyce Room
    Joyce is one of Ireland’s eight Noble Prize
    winners and amongst the most influential
    writers of the 20th century. One of his best
    known quotes is that “A nation is the
    same people living in the same place”.
    Although a Dublin Man (“When I die
    Dublin will be written in my heart”) his
    writing says much about the common
    Irish experience. The James Joyce Room
    has a double and single bed.
  • The Kavanagh Room
    Patrick Kavanagh was a country man and
    his writing is notable for its realistic
    portrayal of Irish rural life. He is known for
    his fiery views; “A sweeping statement is
    the only statement worth listening to”.
    And, rather unfairly, that “There is
    something wrong with a work of art if it
    can be understood by a policeman”. The
    Patrick Kavanagh Room has a
    double and single bed.
