Stayed at Foyles because we could not get a second night at The Quay House. Perfectly adequate but I think you could get a better price elsewhere for similar quality. That said, the manager, one of the Foyles, was everywhere giving excellent service. And the food in the restaurant downstairs was superb. Only real downside was a terrible shower, very... More

This is a busy little town, with lots of tourists, at least in June. It was not easy to find a hotel at the time we visited, we found a charming room at the Foyles Hotel. The room was roomy as was the bathroom, and clean. It might look all a bit dated but that is part of the charm.... More

We toured Ireland and this was one of our favourite places to stay. Nothing was any bother to the staff the owners were very much in the thick of it with their delightful young daughter in tow.. We arrived on two motorbikes this was not a problem and a safe and secure place at the back of the hotel was... More

People are the essence of good hospitality and it is never more true than at the Foyles Hotel. The owner lives there and is everywhere, cheerfully greeting and assisting guests at seemingly all hours. The maids, waiters etc are all cheerful and helpful. It is right smack in the middle of town - couldn't be a better location. The restaurant... More

I'll start with the positives: 1) Location - smack bang in the middle of Clifden, surrounded by great restaurants and pubs, location just couldn't be better. 2) Staff - absolutely fantastic staff, a warm greeting at the desk, excellent and attentive staff at breakfast, many hotels could learn a thing or two from the friendly, professional staff at Foyle's. 3)...

This hotel has everything going for it. Situated in a beautiful part of Ireland, and in a pleasant town, it has a fourth generation proprietor looking after it. The proprietor is omnipresent and this reflects in his superb attention to detail and the care and comfort of his guests. Our room was very clean and contained an eclectic mix of... More

Comfy, friendly, with a cracking little bar, where the barman's as sound as a pound, helpful and knows the area well. Breakfast in bed is well worth the €3 since the rooms are so comfy and roomy. And it's bang in the centre of town. The smoker's but outside the bar has been put together with love and attention, a... More

I love my husband, and we decided to spend his 50th birthday weekend in Foyles hotel. A homely place, with a warm atmosphere perhaps because it's family run, I don't know. We bought a weekend deal which included a two night stay and a gourmet meal. Well when they say Gourmet, they mean Gourmet. From the selection of fresh homemade... More

I found myself this evening on return from Foyle's totally rejuvenated. The opposite to how i was feeling on my arrival. Being honest about it, usually breaks are to hotels with much more facilities but after staying in Foyle's this weekend i now know i need to reassess my choices. This was one of the friendliest, most unpertentious and comfortable... More
