I stayed here for a night recently and it's an excellent B&B. The rooms are bright and airy, the beds very comfortable. The place is spotless. We had dinner and breakfast there, Helen is a great cook and a very welcoming host. The b&b is located close to the ferry port and is easy to find.

As fine an example of island hospitality that you could hope to experience. Alan and Helen couldn't have been more helpful and for certain I will be back again to stay at their delightful guesthouse..

A group of us stayed in O'Grady's for the Pirate Queen / Clare Island Adventure Race. Helen looked after us from the moment we arrived until we left. The rooms are bright, spacious, airy, comfortable, spotlessly clean & all have WiFi access as well as tea-making facilities. After a rather tough day out running about the Island, it was sheer...

We stayed here with a group of friends a couple of weeks ago. The guesthouse is kept in pristine condition, and spacious rooms with modern decor. The thing I loved about this place was the personal attention to detail. Helen couldn't have done more for us! You just don't get that anywhere anymore! Hats off!

I have stayed in O'Gradys a couple of times now and I found the place to be excellent. Luxurious rooms, hearty tasty food and a welcome that's second to none. The O'Grady family don't rent you a room, they welcome you into their family.

Recently stayed here on a 10 day tour of Ireland with a group of friends in their 30s. Some Irish friends set up the reservation, and when we arrived via ferry we were promptly greeted and given room keys. After that, the owner of the house didn't bother us much, but let us know that if we needed anything to... More

Our Family booked O' Grady's Guest House for the weekend to celebrate my wife's mothers birthday. From the moment we stepped onto the pier on Clare Island we were warmly greeted by Helen O' Grady who had a hearty welcome for the Brennan Clan. Our Luggage was taken the short distance to her wonderful home, ideally situated between the Pier... More

Four of us stayed at O'Grady's to celebrate summer solstice. The accommodations were excellent but even more so the hospitality of Helen. You just cannot go wrong. the rooms are beautiful and the common spaces designed to make a person feel at home. It is perfectly located near the boat landing. Listen to Helen. she knows the island and its... More
