My husband and I stayed with the Conroys for two nights last week. From the delicious breakfast to the nicely appointed rooms to the incredible location on the Sky Road overlooking the cliffs, everything about our stay at Rockmount House was excellent. As dog owners ourselves, we absolutely loved being accompanied by Lady and Bonnie, their two super friendly dogs,... More

We stayed here for one night, en route to the Connemara National Park and surrounding areas. This is located on the scenic Sky Road route which is lovely for driving and walking given its spectacular views. Ann is a lovely host and very welcoming. The room itself was spotless and well equipped. A few nice extras such as the tea... More

The Conroys run an excellent B&B. It is very peaceful with a beautiful view of the ocean. Great breakfast with lots of options, super clean and appealing decor. Ann goes out of her way to make you feel welcome and is helpful with advice on what to see and do in the area. Highly recommended.

I stayed at Rockmount House with two friends and we couldn't have made a better choice. Its location a few kilometres outside of Clifden on the scenic Sky Road means that it's absolutely quiet there, save for the occasional "moo" and "baa". The surroundings are as idyllic as it gets. Anne and Paddy were the most lovely hosts, so warm... More

Anne and Paddy certainly make travelers welcome, including their helpful way, excellent room and facilities, quality breakfasts and fantastic location. Each vista around their home and neighborhood is a photographers delight. Thank you for a great time visiting Rockmount House. Clyde & Cynthia Arnold, Nova Scotia, Canada

Rockmount House was lovely, even without the amazing scenery along Sky Road. The drive from town is well worth it. The owners were wonderful. The room was comfortable and clean. The dogs were sweet and welcoming as well. Highly recommend the location for anyone staying in the area.

Rockmount House was the perfect ending point for our trip to the west coast of Ireland. We were looking for something that was a little ways from town in order to get some peace and quiet in, in a lovely location. Rockmount did not disappoint. The owners were very friendly and professional. We received a warm welcome and felt comfortable... More

We were delighted with our choice of Rockmount House and the room, beds, cleanliness and breakfast. Charming landlady. Dog was also delightful. View from the room - just walk over the cow field and you're on top of the cliffs. Do be aware that there is an upper and lower Sky Road. Take the upper Sky Road for the view... More
