We had made a reservation at the Atlantic View for 3 nights 3 days in advance by phone which was confirmed. But when arriving there we were simply told that everything was a 'mistake' and that we could not stay the three nights as we were promised on the phone. That was definitely not the warm welcome we had expected... More

We spent 5 nights at Atlantic View, the rooms we had were spacious and very comfortable and the breakfasts were tasty. This B & B is run by lovely ladies who make sure your stay is comfortable and enjoyable. The views are beautiful and there is lots to do just a short distance in any direction from Atlantic View B...

Margaret Pryce runs a very friendly bed and breakfast. She greeted us enthusiastically and even kept our Coke refrigerated. Our triple room had comfortable beds and was very clean, spacious and included a sitting area. Since it is located on N59 it is easily accessible to Clifden and other sites in Connemara. Don't forget to ask Margaret for her crepes... More

We were greeted by our hostess, Margaret, and she made us feel at home. At first I thought she was a little gruff but that wasn't the case at all. She is a warm hearted person who was so helpful and informative. The family room was very spacious and immaculate. Our meals were so delicious and she asked when we... More

This B&B is a treasure -- not to be missed! The welcoming hospitality, the cleanliness, the attention to detail, everything one would expect in a B&B down the road (a bit more than walking distance) from the down town (but taxi is easy to access). I read the review by Bryan regarding a sign on the door saying to call,... More

My Husband and I arrived in Shannon on the 9th of Jan at 6:00 am. We came from California so you can understand the time difference was 8 hours. Our plan, to stay up pretty much the day we arrived as long as we could to adjust to the time. We arrived in Clifden a bit early - earlier than... More

Had to beg someone in clifden to call for us. She finally showed up and complained about having to turn on the heat since she doesn't... More

Margaret was a great host. Rooms were very comfortable. Breakfast was great. Just outside town. Easy to find. We were trying to find a WWII memorial to a bomber that went down just off the coast. Half the crew survived. A friends grandfather was the pilot. Margaret brought her brother over to help us with ideas. We found it 1/4... More

We recently spent three nights at Atlantic View B&B. Margaret was a marvelous hostess and provided a consistently wonderful breakfast. Her place is located just a little outside Clifden on the N59 (Westport Road) and easily found. Atlantic View boasts great vistas and very attractive grounds. The house was very clean and our room quite spacious. We will certainly return... More
