Friends from LA recommended the Quay House and it was as they described and even more. Paddy and Julia were outstanding, the breakfast was unexpected and wonderful, the drive in the area panoramic. Our room was perfect , and we would not hesitate to recommend the Quay House and Clifden.

I don’t know if it was the oysters on the menu, the novelty of open fires in the bedroom, the very friendly and inviting hosts, or the surprise of have an almost rain free week in Connemara in October, but the Quay House now ranks amongst my favourite hotels in the world. It is not that large (though the rooms... More

quite a high price for a large room... if you feel like spending €50 extra to sleep in a Museum, then go for it, otherwise go some where else to get more value for your money, room: like a museum breakfast: o.k. people: very friendly tidiness: good equipped: very well

Spent three nights at the Quay House and couldn't have been more pleased with the quality of the service, the facility and the assistance of the hosts. We were looking for light self-catering and our room (#1) fit the bill perfectly with a small kitchenette. The bedroom portion of the suite overlooks the harbor and the roughly 400 sq. ft.... More

We came to the Quay House with two small children and were delighted to stay in a room big enough for the kids to play in and beautiful enough for us to sit back and enjoy. The place is so enjoyable, all the antiques and artifacts add real character. Not only was it lovely but also very comfortable, from the... More

We recently visited this wonderful inn on September 29 for 3 nights, a welcome retreat from busy and raucous Dublin. (My second time) Paddy gave a choice of room and we selected a cozy one overlooking the water with comfortable living space and equipped with a gas fireplace and small kitchen. This inn is magical and located a short walk... More

We recently spent a fantastic few days at The Quay House in Clifden. Our hosts Paddy and Julia Foyle could not have been warmer or more welcoming ensuring a memorable stay and leaving us just wanting to return as soon as we can. We had a beautiful spacious room with a sensational view out over the water towards the town... More

We loved our two night stay in this interesting, comfortable B&B with wonderful views over the harbour. Paddy and Julia were delightful hosts and breakfast each morning was very enjoyable. We were sorry we could only spend two nights here as there is so much to explore and enjoy both in their home and in Clifden. We stayed in "A"... More

This was our fifth stay at the Quay House over a period of about 20 years and as enjoyable as ever. Paddy and Julia Foyle are delightful hosts and treat all their guests, new and old, as members of the family. Originally they offered evening meals, but no longer; however, there are very good restaurants (try Mitchells, but book a... More

Stay at this beautiful hotel where each room is beautifully decorated and unique. I stayed here for a weekend in September with a group of friends. The management (Paddy, Julia & their staff) bent backwards to make our stay perfect and ensured nothing was amiss. Not only was the breakfast generous but delicious and beautifully presented - every time! The... More
