If you are visiting Clifden the treat yourself by staying at the Quay House. This is not your average B & B, but a step back in time to an old world charm. Paddy and Julia are excellent hosts where nothing is too much trouble. The relaxed atmosphere permeates the whole house are you are treated more like a friend... More

The Quay House was in a great location- walking distance to Clifden, which is a darling town! Our room was very comfortable, clean, and unique (all the rooms are a bit different). Breakfast the next morning was great, and we enjoyed admiring all the decor throughout the hotel.

As we drove up to a lovely building overlooking the bay, we knew we had picked well. Julia and Paddy's warm welcome and help getting settled and making dinner recommendations only confirmed this. We staying in the spacious Mirror Room and loved every moment. I am not one for antiques really, but the room was wonderfully appointed and spacious, with... More

Where to start, there were 4 of us who arrived on May 5th for our 5 night, second time visit at The Quay House. Paddy was there and greeted us as old friends (Julia was out for lunch with some friends). My parents got their previous room, the mirror room and loved it. Paddy gave my husband and I the... More

Would completely recommend this to anyone and met all expectations after having read the good reviews online. We arrived very late in the evening and Paddy and wife were excellent arranging for the local Indian to stay open that we could eat. Paddy even ran us down there. I only wish that we could have stayed longer to have better... More

Sophisticated and cheerful. The Quay House is charmingly intimate with the best breakfast in Ireland. Alongside the jetty it is quiet and a few minutes walk from the town's bustle. An alpha. Lots of info and advice from Julia and Paddy.

We love everything about this inn. The owners are knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. The breakfasts feature lots of fresh fish but also eggs and wonderful baked goods, the rooms are beautiful and quiet and the walls throughout the inn are covered with interesting artwork. Lots of common rooms with comfortable chairs and sofas make for cozy reading. We wish we... More

The Quay House is the Perfect Place to stay! Perfect room: We rested and relaxed in a spotlessly clean and spacious room that included a comfortable sitting area and a lovely balcony view of harbor, town and Connemara! We especially appreciated the super-comfortable king bed and large bathroom. Perfect breakfast: We were treated to fresh, varied and delicious choices including... More

Accomodation amazing. Breakfast menus amazing. Owners & staff amazing. We go to Quay House every year. It's like an annual pilgrimage. Fantastic for chilling out. Great accomodation position to tour around all the Gayway/Mayo country side by self-drive and to return to your beautiful relaxing accomodation by night. Clifden has a fantastic selection of night time eateries, most notable, Mitchell's,... More
