“Excellent B&B”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

We stayed only 1 night (unfortunately) and will come back for sure. The owners are very nice and make you fell at home. Nice location, even if it is not in the centre of Clifden, very clean and comfortable rooms, excellent breakfast. Private path to the cliffs (with the family's dog as guide :-)), where you'll enjoy the wide blue and green landscape, sense of freedom and contact with nature. Recommended B&B.

We were looking for something remote but with good access to the local sights and we couldn't have found a more perfect place. We got a very friendly welcome, but not overbearing. It's location on the Lower Sky Rd out of Clifden was perfect, with it's own access to the cliffs and a short drive into the town. The room was very comfortable with a nice en suite. The breakfast menu had a great choice with not just the usual "full Irish" but also options like an excellent fruit selection or a plate of cheese and hams. Anne was very helpful and knowledgable about the local attractions. We would highly recommend staying here if you are anywhere in this location.

We stayed here in 2005 and 2007 and if we get back to Ireland we will stay here again. It is one of the places for which we have fond memories and often talk about. The lady of the house is a gem. I will always remember her for the wonderful scrambled eggs she made. The breakfast room is bright, clean, and decorated wonderfully. Best of all, she turns on the heat early so the bedroom will be warm when you return after being aout in the evening.

We stayed here last year during our visit to Clifden. We were greeted with a very warm welcome, and felt very comfortable here. The house is beautiful, and even more breathtaking were the views of the cliffs that surround their house-(They have a trail in the back of their house that takes you right to the cliffs). The area is a photographer's dream.

  • Liked — The Location was amazing.
