This is a B & B / guesthouse with a real sense of history. Right in the centre of Clifden has operated about a dozen room since the 1920's. The grandparents of the current owners were quite the little Alan Sugar's of their day. Apart from the guesthouse they also had a restaurant and a general store. They have now gone, but the breakfast room (a wonderfully olde wordle experience with great charm) still uses the silver tea and coffee pots from the restaurant.
Prices are very reasonable and the staff friendly. The house has tons of original features - what more could you ask for ? OK, OK a pool, tennis court, a spa would be nice. Tough.
Bargain accomodation a couple of miles outside Clifden. The B&B is quite small, but in a delightful location. Owners Michael and Antoinette are very friendly and we enjoyed our stay.
Located on the Lower Sky Road the B&B enjoys views across Clifden Bay. It was enjoyable to take a stroll in the mornings and evenings. I'd stay here again.
Mrs Ann Schley a very friendly lady and her husband are running this place. It?s located in the centre, just a hundred meter walk from the pubs and supermarket.
The rooms are clean with a have private shower. Like in all B&B is the breakfast superb.
They had more detailed maps of the area available for us and pointed us also towards the skyroad.
