“Wonderful stay”
Reviewed 17 September 2011

We stayed at the Ardagh Hotel for two nights at the end of August/beginning of Sept --- it was the perfect ending to an 8-day tour of the west coast of Ireland. Definitely ask for a 2nd floor room w/bay view --- ours was spectacular, especially at sunset, and otherwise very comfortable & welcoming. The staff is very relaxed, friendly & very helpful, and the food is superb. The dining room has the same spectacular water views. Overall a wonderful experience & a great advertisement for the Connemara. We'll definitely return.

The Ardagh is like staying at your Mum and Dad's - It's unbelievably comfortable, Stephane and Monique are very hospitable and best of all, the food is to die for. We have stayed in this hotel many times over the years and keep returning for more. The superior rooms on the top floor are worth the extra for the sitting room overlooking the bay. If you are lucky enough to see a sunset from the restaurant, the memory will stay with you forever!

Room Tip: Top floor rooms have a small sitting room looking out over the bay.

We have just returned from the Ardagh Hotel and would certainly recommend it to anyone who wants to feel welcome and relax. I suppose it is a little old fashioned but the sizeable bedrooms are spotlessly clean and well eqipped. The bathroom certainly is dated and the shower had a tendency to run a little cool from time to time, but the huge fluffy towels more than made up for it! The view from the bedrooms at the front was fantastic ! The food in the restaurant was to die for..... really fresh ingredients and really well cooked, complemented by a good wine list which was not overly expensive. Service was speedy and efficient and every need/request/whim was catered for. Breakfast was well prepared with a good selection. The dining room looks out over the bay and whether the sun was setting or the rain was streaming down, the view was stunning. All in all, a very enjoyable, relaxing experience and we certainly will be back.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bay view on an upper floor

The Ardagh Hotel & Restaurant truly offers a warmly inviting refuge for a single traveller!
I was stunned by the nature and the quality of the food, and I enjoyed lazy hours in the cosy bar with its soft sofas and fireplace.
This is a place to feel at home and to connect with co travellers from all continents.

Thanks Monique & Stéphane & all staff!

We enjoyed every relaxing minute, at this most welcoming hotel. It was spotlessly clean and we are already talking about going back next year, thanks to all the staff for making us feel welcome and relaxed. Our nine year old cried a little in the car as we left I think that says it all. If you want a nice comfortable hotel a little outside Cliftden (3km) with lovely views out to the bay were you can relax then this what this hotel for you.
