John and Kathy are the most incredible hosts ever ! Although the ride to the B &B might seem too far from the town center, it's worth it! The place is absolutely spotless and so comfortable! Their breakfasts are indescribably delicious from the eggs, black & tan pudding and pancakes! A short walk to a breath taking view of the... More

We arrived in Clifden after a long drive from Kenmare and then took the road to the Ardmore House. The road is intimidating at first! Its narrow with a goodly drop off down to the ocean on one side and few guardrails. The views are well worth overcoming your fears and by the third or fourth time you drive it,... More

This was the first B&B we stayed in. It was not the first B&B I contacted from the USA about what they had to offer guests. We stayed 2 nights. It was a beautiful home, wonderful hosts, it over look the ocean, the breakfast was perfect. We were here in July 2011.

I cannot say enough positive things about this beautiful B&B!! We traveled across the country for our honeymoon and this was easily our favorite place to stay. Our room was so lovely - immaculately clean, furnished with updated fixtures/finishes, and very spacious! It really felt luxurious. The owners were so welcoming and helpful - they were more than understanding when... More

... I can highly recommend going for the pancakes with blueberries when choosing your breakfast!! This was my second time staying on Sky Road, but first time in Ardmore House. The location is around 15 mins drive from Clifden town at narrow but very scenic roads! Views over the Atlantic from the house. Service was excellent. Good dinner options in... More

We were greeted by Kathy who was so incredibly warm and welcoming from beginning to end. She made us feel right at home, and she had even made reservations for dinner at her... More
