The hotel is located just far enough outside of Clifden on a beautiful property with a very... More

I was doing a tour of Ireland with my sons(3 and 11) which was a real boys own adventure involving a lot of camping and generally being boys. For our last days we decided a little luxury was in order and booked three nights at the Ardagh. Upon arrival the friendly guy on reception gave us a mini tour and... More

Most of the interiors have been renovated recently though the bathrooms and the doors look a little worn. Lots of parking available and a nice bar and lounge area where the ebullient owner/manager and his son regularly burst... More
