One of Connemara’s longest established hotels trading since 1836 and owned by the Foyles for nearly a century.Foyle’s Hotel is situated in the centre of Clifden and is an ideal central point for exploring Connemara.The Hotel’s old world elegance and atmosphere have been gracefully retained through recent renovations, each room being individually decorated and furnished with charm and warmth.The Foyles and their staff offer you a warm welcome and will be happy to assist you in enjoying the area.
Stayed here for a couple of nights recently. Interesting place and the staff were very helpful and accommodating. Breakfasts were very good, bar interesting and friendly and the guest areas were all very comfortable. Bedroom was clean and quiet but in need of a refurb. This was especially true of the bathroom.
The hotel was as I had expected. It’s an old property in the centre of town. Staff friendly and very helpful. The room was big enough, comfortable bed (poor pillows) bathroom clean and functional but everything was very dated. But hey, you don’t go to this neck of the woods to sit in your room and cogitate! The Resturant Marconi was exceptional, truely! I travel on my own, eat on my own so I really appreciate great food and knowledgeable staff. Here you had both. The restaurant was packed with many nationalities and I never once saw anything other than happy punters and clean plates. There was a typically Irish reception area with comfy seating so I saw several people working on laptops for business as well as those sitting cheerfully planning their travels in Connemara. The bar was a bit of a let down. Dark and dreary with no sense of the craic going on but I suspect that most people finish their evening in the restaurant and either move on or retire. Would I go back? Yes in a heartbeat! Be warned though if you choose to have the stuffed mushrooms as a starter. Either share them or understand that they are truly a meal in themselves. So it depends on what you can handle quantity wise. Either way scrumptious as was the duck. Slow cooked with a sort of chutney jus. Magic.
Asked the lady in Walshs bakery where to eat dinner! She advised Foyle’s. We were lucky and got a table. Lovely olde world dining room, wonderful menu, great choice. Wine delicious! Corner table and great space between us and other diners which I appreciate. We had great service, two lovely French girls, very professional and helpful! Charming staff, and such an asset! Next time we will stay the night, and have dinner as well. Look forward already!👌
Foyles is reassuringly characterful, with a welcoming foyer full of comfortable sofas. Our room was also comfortable, although in need of updating. (The hotel is undergoing refurbishment so I am sure that will happen soon). Breakfasts were good - everything cooked fresh and a reasonable range of fruit and cereals. The brown bread was delicious! Service was extremely good - friendly yet professional. I hope that when the rest of the hotel is refurbished the character will be retained, as this is what people will come to Foyles for.
From the moment we stepped inside the door of Foyles we were "at home". Pleaseant surroundings, friendly staff great food and super entertainment made for a great weekend. An ideal location from which to travel and see the wonders of Connemara.
No, but there is ample street parking in front of the hotel and in the side street, for motorcycles there is a narrow alleyway through to the rear courtyard if required, but this is a safe seaside town and never expects any... More
