Radharc An Chlair

Brid Poil’s welcoming dormer house on the Aran Islands looks over the Cliffs of Moher, with views of Galway Bay on the left, and has had a great reputation for many years - she came over from Clare over twenty years ago when she married Peadar and thought this would be a nice thing to do.


Her many regular guests clearly agree - when the ferry from Doolin started, all Clare came over - and are still coming so you need to book a month ahead. Rooms are very comfortable, with simple en-suite bathrooms providing all that is needed.


A keen cook, Brid’s philosophy is ‘simple and in season’ which should be the mantra of all on the islands. Although she no longer offers dinner, there are treats a-plenty for breakfast: fresh juices, granola cereals, porridge; fruit compotes (prune and apricot, perhaps); traditional Irish breakfast - or kippers from Garry Hayes in Doolin; freshly baked breads (courgette and walnut, wholemeal) and scones, and home-made jams and grapefruit marmalade to enjoy with them.


Brid's son, Owen, has started a walking tour business on the island and it is proving a success.
