This establishment is the tops- rooms clean and comfortable and breakfasts ( wide choice including wonderful fish and unforgettable porridge) were outstanding and the service provided by Cathriona and Patrick was impeccable.Location is excellent and Clifden is a lively centre .I would thoroughly recommend Buttermilk Lodge.

On our recent trip to the west coast of Ireland we had the good fortune to spend a couple of nights at this lovely guest house.Our ground-floor room was clean,warm and very well-appointed.The hosts,Patrick and Cathriona,are charming and served up delicious breakfasts.
There is a comfortable guest-lounge,always accessible to guests,with a real peat fire and complimentary tea and coffee facilities.
There is ample parking space and Clifden town centre is just a 5-minute walk away.Buttermilk Lodge is a guest house easy to recommend.

My friends and I spent 3 nights at the Buttermilk Lodge. The rooms are very nice, the breakfast is great and it's a very short drive into Clifden. Patrick took us to his farm to meet his Connemara ponies. Cathorina was very efficient, but not what you'd call friendly - it was the only B&B we stayed in where Irish hospitality did not shine through. Nevertheless, the rooms were clean and the location was very good.

We loved the Buttermilk Lodge! The owner was so sweet and welcoming and a wonderful cook! The breakfast she made was one of my favorite meals during my time in Ireland!! The place was clean and easy to find and we were provided with much needed information about the town and best places to go. I would recommend this place to anyone!

Buttermilk Lodge is a lovely B&B 5 mins walk from Clifden Town Center. If you are visiting Clifden and haven't done so already, make sure to take a nice stroll up the Sky Rd.

It has a lovely theme of dairy cows running through the restaurant which are great and make the dinning area very homey. The food was excellent too, breakfast was great!

Our room was very comfortable and the shower was great. It was a great nice sleep.

I'm looking forward to my next visit to Clifden and Buttermilk Lodge.
