The location was very convenient for brief visit to Cliffs of Moher and the Burren on our way to a two-week vacation rental in Connemara. The Hotel/Inn is very nicely decorated and furnished, our room was very comfortable and the staff was helpful with directions and suggestions. Best of all, dinner was wonderful. My fish & chips at Sheedy's spoiled me as its tastiness and delicate batter could not be equalled at the pubs and other restaurants we explored later on. Finally, the included breakfast in the morning could not have been better.

We enjoyed our stay at Sheedys. We were made to feel very welcome by Martina. We also very much enjoyed our two evening meals. Our only caveat was that we had an identical menu on both evenings and would have welcomed some "daily special" additional items.

My husband and I stayed at Sheedy's for one night in early May. The grounds are beautiful and spacious. The room and bath are large, inviting, and spotlessly clean, toiletries and towels luxurious. Dinner that night was delicious and locally-sourced. Breakfast was beautiful and plentiful. The Sheedys accommodated some special needs with no hesitation. The Sheedys run a gem of a hotel with personal attention and pride. We will return. We will recommend it to friends traveling to Ireland. We loved it! Thank you!

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at Sheedy's. We arrived very early, but were immediately made to feel very welcome, and by just after mid-day, were unpacking in our room. The room was excellent, very large, comfortable, and well furnished. The hotel facilities were unusually good: it's many years since we were in a hotel with a reading room, for example. The food was first class, and we thoroughly enjoyed the dinner we had. Breakfast was also of a high standard. Mr Sheedy is clearly a very accomplished chef. Mrs Sheedy was an excellent hostess, informative and helpful, and nothing was too much trouble for her. We left feeling as though we had spent a couple of nights with friends in their home. All in all, we were extremely satisfied with our stay, and hope to be able to return soon.

A wonderful two-night stay at Sheedys Hotel, capped off by the first-class dinner in the restaurant. We really appreciated the excellent service, with over-and-beyond helpfulness regarding getting our laundry done and the late-night nips of whiskey!

An ideal location base for touring the area, Sheedy’s manages to combine very comfortable accommodation, charming service and the most delicious breakfasts and dinners it’s possible to find. Highly recommended for a relaxing, indulgent stay.

Sheedys was excellent. We stayed in three hotels during our visit and Sheedys was by far the best. It is a cliché but they go the extra mile for all their customers. We felt as customers that we were valued. This was reinforced when we moved on to a well known hotel in Galway and were disappointed to find it was not as good.

Irish hospitality is legendary and now we know it is no myth! Martina was the most gracious host we've ever encountered! Our rooms were large and comfortable, attention to detail was obvious. We were greeted with a wonderful pot of tea and homemade shortbread after a tiring drive along the Wild Atlantic Way. Our dinner in the bar room was absolutely delicious & in a wonderful setting Our Irish breakfast was just perfect! My husband insists that it was his favorite stay on our trip! Our only regret is that our stay was for one night. Thanks to the Sheedy's for their gracious hospitality- The Meads

We loved everything about our accommodation: from the luxurious towels, linens, and soaps to perhaps the best shower in Europe. However, what truly makes this a gem is the care given by the hosts to ensure their guests enjoy the highest level of service and best quality food possible.

Irish hospitality at its best. Breakfast and dinner were excellent. Great location to explore The Burren, Cliffs of Moher and the Aran Islands.

Four of us stayed overnight at Sheedys. We were totally satisfied with our stay. The welcoming atmosphere created by Martina was special. Our rooms were large, beautifully furnished and most comfortable. Our bathrooms with baths were of a very high standard. We had dinner prepared by John. Two of us had the monkfish special, as good as we have had anywhere. The hake and lamb were superb. We enjoyed an after dinner drink in the cosy bar. Breakfast next morning was varied and excellent. We were sorry that we could not stay longer, but will certainly visit again and are happy to recommend Sheedys to all of our friends.

We thoroughly enjoyed our one night stay at Sheedys and wished we could have stayed longer. Martina greeted us with hot drinks and homemade biscuits in our wonderful room overlooking the garden.The room was spacious and warm with really comfortable beds ! The bathroom had a powerful shower and bath and everything was spotless. We had everything we needed including tea and coffee making facilities and much much more. The breakfast was excellent but if you can book a table for dinner you will not be disappointed. The quality of the food was fully deserving of the two rosettes. Thank you - we hope to return and will be recommending Sheedys to all our friends.

The hospitality is superb, from the tea we were offered upon arrival to the inviting and comfortable room with large, sparkling-clean bathroom. Martina is ever attentive--we appreciated her help with exploring The Burren--and John's cuisine with many local ingredients is excellent. The locally made bagels, smoked salmon and goat cheese raises the bar on a New York favorite. We highly recommend having dinner in the restaurant too.
