Immaculately clean, a friendly welcome, a roomy, a quiet comfortable room, and a good breakfast. Need one say more? Yes, no sea view, but there is a private walk from the guest house to the cliffs. Strongly recommended.

Ardmore house is a bit out on a limb but don't let that put you off. Sky road which leads to it is narrow but cars coming the other way are courteous and careful. (When we drove it at least) If you don't want to drive the 5K (3 miles) back into Clifden for the evening then get organised, buy... More

This is a beautiful bed and breakfast! The rooms are very spacious, clean, and well furnished. It has the feel of a five-star hotel with all the comforts of home. Kathy made us feel so welcome and at ease. We stayed at six bed and breakfasts during our trip around Ireland, and this was one of our absolute favorites. We... More

Our family stay at Ardmore was excellent. The location was beautiful and so were our rooms. Breakfast was great, with good portions and many choices. Our hosts were very helpful and accommodating to our every need. We enjoyed our walks out to the cliffs and during our first afternoon we witnessed a double rainbow that was very vividly colored!

Still can't believe how cheap this was. Ended up staying two nights and would have stayed several more but for family commitments. The standard of the accommodation, the hospitality and the food are what you would expect at a five-star luxury establishment. They really think of everything. scrambled eggs with a mountain of smoked salmon was best breakfast ever. There's... More

We spent 2 lovely nights here. First of all, this is the most immaculate, clean B&B I have ever been in. Our room was roomy and overlooked the meadows and ocean out in the distance. The owners are very hospitable, and Kathy made it a point to recommend places to visit, along with a local map. The breakfast was terrific.... More

If not the best by itself, then for sure tied for the best! This was a great place to stay as we traveled all around the coast of Ireland. Guests were made to feel welcome in a way that was warm and genuine and truly thoughtful. Every need was thought of to make the stay memorable and comfortable. The sitting... More

Our second visit to Ardmore House and we were just as pleased as our first stay; lovely spotless clean room, best shower we had in Ireland; the breakfast had plenty of healthy choices. Ardmore private walk to the cliffs and the picnic benches made our evenings perfect. Kathy and John are always there to help and gave us lots of... More

This was the most scenic location of our overnight stays on our 11 day trip to Ireland, however that comes at a cost. The road to Ardmore house is, like many in Ireland, single lane and subject to livestock movement. It is also a good 15 minute drive outside of Clifden, which makes it difficult to venture into town for... More

The only problem I had with our stay at Ardmore House was that it was only for one night ! A lovely welcome from Kathy , top class accommodation, holding a well earned AA 4Star status and a stunning location. I look forward to a return visit with the walking boots in order to enjoy the cliff path walk which... More
