All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.
Hotel Doolin is distinct, dynamic and different. There is a true sense of creativity about how the team here carry out their work, and it means that they avoid the clichés that make so many hotels humdrum, avoiding the by-the-rulebook mantra that makes staying in hotels so dissatifying. The commitment and drive of the team who run the show is evident everywhere in this unusual hotel – unusual in that the design is imaginative and different, with the building front-loaded with the bar, the office, the shop and all the other elements placed out front and accessible by separate entrances. But, design elements aside, it’s the honest-to-God dynamism of the staff that makes Hotel Doolin noteworthy, and the fact that they are so entwined in all the celebrations and festivals of the Doolin community, hosting craft beer festivals, writing festivals, music festivals. Stay here and you catch that energy, and it’s pretty irresistible.
