A nice old. friendly hotel but in need of a 'facelift'. If you have heavy suitcases there are no elevators. However it was clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. The rooms are also comfortable but the furnishings are old and fixtures are not always intact! It is central and as such has a great location.

It is a very lovely hotel with it's historical lobby. Breakfast was super. Location is great. Rooms are very clean and spacey. We stayed in a room with street view. It was a little noisy, but it did not bother much. Hotel personnel is perfect.. We enjoyed this hotel and the area before heading to our beautiful Connemara sky drive..

The hotel is a lovely old-fashioned (in the best possible way) hotel with an amazing Irish breakfast and a nice room with a surprisingly big and very comfortable bed. The staff are very friendly and helpful. There is also a lovely cosy bar where you could stay for the evening no problem. The price we paid was excellent seeing as... More

I stayed at Foyles Hotel with a group of (mainly) seniors in May 2014, including on a Friday and Saturday night. I had been a bit worried beforehand about the possibility of noise on those evenings, given that the hotel is situated in the heart of small town. I need not have worried. We were not disturbed by noise and... More

After our drive from the Cliffs of Mohre it was so nice to arrive at Foyles Hotel. We were a party of six.. 2 families. This hotel has family rooms available. We stayed in 115 and my brother in 201. Our room was quite large! 3 twin beds and one double in a nicely divided room. The bath was large... More

Charming hotel is a nice town. Old hotel with lots of atmoshphere. Yes, it was a bit worn - but not so much that it was affecting our stay. And the rooms were comfortable. The breakfast was delicious (those croissants!). We only had a brief stay, but were happy about it.

We stumbled upon Foyle's Hotel last May during our first trip to Ireland and we loved it. As Connemara is our favorite area of Ireland, we scheduled a night this May at Foyle's. We weren't disappointed. Surprisingly, without asking for it or prior knowledge on their part, Foyle's put us in the exact same room as last year! It was... More

Had a weekend away as gift for my husbands 60th, he had never been to Connemara. We loved Foyles, it is a bit dated but that's what I loved about it. Breakfast was great, I arrived down early one morning (the staff were still setting up) but I was able to sit down with my book and was given coffee... More

Yes, the hotel is a bit worn, but it retains it's 200 year old character and the friendly, helpful staff and great breakfast more than compensate for some worn furnishings and occasional glitches (e.g., power went out on one side of our room, which was quickly fixed). Oh, and the price was the best we found in central Clifden the... More
