The weather was foul. Blowing a gale and snow storms, but once inside all changed. A lovely homely hotel with excellent rooms, well cared for and en-suite. The food was just superb. Ok it was Valentines night but the female guests had a red rose and a glass of fizzy on the house. Lovely touch and great staff. Breakfast as... More

Fabulously friendly hotel with a "can do" approach . Stayed for New Year and thoroughly enjoyed the stay. While the food and wine were great the brilliant staff made the experience . Special thanks to Stephen who seems to work 24 hours a day

We loved our stay here! The rooms were huge with great old features and big windows! The breakfast was wonderful as well. We also love the dog that was always lounging around the hotel lobby! It was a beautiful dog and very friendly! :)

This beautiful old hotel with period features is complemented by the friendly attentive staff. Though there are no modern frills, we enjoyed our night in a PROPER old fashioned hotel. WiFi is intermittent depending where you are but it works and is free. Because it was a weekend we had free parking outside the front door but beware other times... More

I spent three nights in this extremely friendly hotel, one evening I ate in the restaurant, the food was delicious and well presented and the service excellent. I have to commend them on their breakfast which set one up perfectly for the round of golf to be played at the Connemara Golf Club. Being located in the center of Clifden... More

I wanted to stay in Clifden for a couple of nights this October and found the website for Foyles Hotel. I was really very surprised to see that they were offering a B&B price of €50, which is extremely good value for a hotel in such a central location in the town. My room was quite basic yet very comfortable.... More

Stayed in Foyles for 2 nights in early October, originally planned to stay for just one night. Found the staff very welcoming and the hotel warm, inviting and very relaxing. The perfect place to unwind and chill out. It's proximity to the many bars and restaurants in Clifden is an added bonus. Breakfasts were excellent. The beautiful scenery of Conemara... More

This comfortable hotel is a great place to stay when in Connemara. Comfortable and clean rooms with a country house feel. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The breakfast is fantastic, you will gain weight for sure. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed four nights on a recent holiday to Ireland. Courteous and helpful staff, spacious rooms and great food . Central location. Complimentary breakfasts seemed endless! Minor quibbles were the firm mattress and slow water pressure. Would definitely return.
