My husband and I had a terrific two days during our stay at Hillside Lodge. Ruth and Stuart were wonderful hosts and full of information about the area. Our room was lovely and clean and a really comfy bed! I slept in until 9:00 the first morning! The delicious breakfast kept us going for hours! We were well taken care... More

Ruth was welcoming and showed us their B & B before we decided to stay. They had thought of everything. In the room there was an information folder with all the things a tourist would ever want to know about the area, town and sights to see. The rooms were decorated in music themes which was really neat. Their dog... More

Ruth was wonderful! Lots of tips and advice for our stay in Clifden as well as Ireland in general. Charming lodge just outside of town. Rooms were clean and neat decor. Ella gave us the perfect greeting!! Highly recommend as a place to stay.

This B&B is fabulous! Rooms are very comfortable, well presented, spotlessly clean and all have music themes. We found the music artefacts really interesting all through the house. Ruth was so welcoming and friendly, she was very helpful with tips and advice. Breakfast was delicious, full choice available. Beautiful location, the scenery is breathtaking around there. Highly recommended!

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
