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

I researched this hotel on the Internet and it seemed as though it was just what I was looking for. From the minute we walked through the door we were not disappointed. A beautiful lounge and tucked away behind that a beautiful eating area. There is a small reception area and a ping of the bell brought someone yo reception.... More

We last stayed overnight in Foyles in 2007 but have been in for tea, lunch and dinner annually on our flying visits home to family living in Connemara. As I pointed out in my last review Foyle's is not a shiny box type hotel but old with character( think Connemara Shabby Chic) but I was really disappointed to read the... More

I can't believe this hotel gets good reviews! Maybe I'm being unfair because I haven't stayed here, but I couldn't actually go further than the lobby! We had coffee there whilst reading the Sunday papers, and it was really unpleasant. The foyer is dark, with ancient mustard coloured, dirty, worn furniture, and the smell of old, greasy carpet and upholstery... More

we had booked the restaurant in Foyles Hotel because we had a good experience before. Saturday night was booked up but they were offering the Valentine's Menu on Friday night also and so we took that. The restaurant has a very pleasant ambience - kind of traditional and comfortably old-world. It is situated in the middle of the town and... More

I have just returned from a wonderful trip to Clifden. We stayed at Foyles Hotel and were not disappointed with any aspect of the experience. We were greeted by the lovely receptionist and a roaring fire. Our room was really large, clean, filled with antiques and a we had a really lovely soft bed. Breakfast was delicious, each morning I...

Since first staying in Foyles in 2013 have returned regularly and it never fails to impress. The perfect service derives from the great team and their pride in performance which has not interfered with their warm disposition. No request is beyond them giving a real home from home feeling. The restaurant is relaxed but top of the range in food... More

By far the best standard, value & quality for any hotel restaurant around. We have stayed here many times but on this occasion couldn't get in however we made sure that we would dine in the Marconi Restaurant (hotel restaurant) & once again we were not disappointed. Our favourite has to be mussels followed by rack of Connemara lamb absolutely... More

Great place to stay, really enjoyed everything about the hotel, perfect location, friendly staff, I loved the old fashioned style room and the bath was so nice too,plenty of pubs shops and restraints near by, it's in the middle of the town, great place to relax in the lobby and read the paper with a cup of coffee so relaxing
