We loved our stay at Hillside Lodge. What we preferred: - The breakfast was great - The room was comfortable. When we opened the window, we could hear the sheep in the morning. Perfect! - The decoration in the house - The booklet presenting what to do etc. - The fact that we can walk the dog, even though we... More

We loved our stay at Hillside Lodge. Our room was beautiful, immaculately clean, with a nicely appointed ensuite and stylish decor. Ruth is a wonderful host, breakfast is delicious, (we loved the homemade muesli and smoked salmon and eggs). It is perfectly situated not far from town right on Sky Road. The entrance to Clifden Castle is literally across the... More

This is a really excellent B&B, comfortable rooms, relaxing sitting room, delicious breakfast and friendly hosts. Highly recommmended. We were able to walk to Clifden town each evening so this is a great location. We borrowed some bicycles and cycled the Sky Road loop which was really beautiful.

This was the best B&B we had during our trip in West-Ireland. A warm welcome from Stewart, great and beautiful room with a view on the sea and a super location, 30 minutes by walk from the village. The decoration of the B&B is very tasteful and the breakfast is delicious and more than enough. Great help from Stewart and... More

First class B&B. Couldn't meet nicer people. Friendly, helpful and the place is immaculately clean. It's about 1 and a half km from town and up a hill so if you enjoy walking it's good exercise. Views along sky road are gorgeous. You are welcome to take their Labrador for a walk, which we did and she is beautiful. Clifden... More

First, the location: It's beautifully situated just outside town... away from the traffic congested small city center. Second, the room was terrific. Good amenities... comfortable bed... even a small TV viewing room in the unit we had. Best of all: the hosts. Stewart and Ruth are warm, welcoming and full of very useful local knowledge. My wife left a pair... More

We had a warm welcome & wonderful time at Hillside Lodge, it's a great place to stay, extremely friendly owners and staff, great decor, excellent breakfast. The lodge is a short drive from town, quiet and nice location. Wonderful scenery and great walking trails in Connemara.

This is a wonderful bed & breakfast on the Sky Road. Service was excellent, rooms were spotless and the breakfast was delicious! We loved the country atmosphere and the quiet serenity, but it was close enough to enjoy the town of Clifden. Make sure that you take advantage of the walk to the ruins of the Clifden Castle. The entrance... More

Where else can you have great food, comfortable and clean rooms, eclectic decor, walking distance to a castle and water, ability to stroll with the family dog, a short drive to the most beautiful scenery in Ireland, and the most congenial hostess in Ireland. There is really nothing bad to say except when we tried to stay longer, they were... More

Very nice B&B near Clifden. The service was excellent and the rooms are lovely decorated. Don`t miss to take the Dog "Ella" for a walk. The city is within walking distance and worth a visit. From Clifden the National park and a lot of other interesting places are easy to visit.
