As well as gaining invaluable local knowledge when you stay at a B&B in Doolin, you are also guaranteed superb food, luxurious rooms, and an Irish welcome like no other.
In the first of our series of Meet the B&B’s, we meet Marian, Martin and daughter Sandra from Glasha Meadows B&B. At Glasha Meadows, you are treated like family. Your hosts can be often found in the dining room, regaling guests with stories of the local area and sharing their love for this special place.
