The Kingstown House was my favorite stay in all of Ireland. The hospitality of the hosts was exceptional. They're very friendly and fed us very well! The rooms were clean. It is right in town and next to a bike shop. Renting and storing a bike was easy. And you're in the heart of the town.

Kingstown House is in a great location in Clifden, and the rooms were cozy and clean. Most importantly, the proprietors, Jim and Regina, went out of their way time and time again to give us helpful ideas about places to see in the area. Their hospitality made our stay so much more fun. Furthermore, the breakfast was grand--the best we... More

Jim and Regina went above and beyond making sure that we were comfortable and that all our questions about traveling were answered. Accomodations were very clean and professional. Thanks for a great stay!

Jim and Regina did everything and more to make our stay comfortable and pleasant. From helping us lug our bags upstairs, to delicious breakfasts, to the warm and inviting fire in the sitting room when when came back from a day of rainy touring, they couldn't have been more accommodating. Jim kept us entertained with his stories and Regina's smile... More

Warm, cozy, and very welcoming are the words that describe this B & B. Jim and Regina are the ultimate host and hostess. Not only is this B & B located in City Center which makes walking around, shopping, and of course, pub hopping easy, the welcome homey feeling we received from Jim and Regina made for the perfect place...

‎While we didn't up staying the night, I had to mention my experience. My wife and I were on a 2 week exploration of Ireland and we were looking for a 2 night let for a double room. The B+B did not have any available...but they went out of their way to try and accommodate us and even offered to... More

We stay in a lot of B&Bs and are amazed at how little the owners interact with guests. Kingstown House is superior in this regard because not only is it close to everything and a great home base for exploring Connemara, the owners - Jim and Regina are so welcoming and helpful. Our room was fine - clean and comfortable.... More

Friendly & helpful owners - located in City Center but plenty of parking in close by car park. Rooms were very nice - and quiet! Around the corner to a good assortment of restaurants & pubs for traditional Irish entertainment. Terrific breakfast! Jim and Regina had great suggestions for dinner, pubs, and local sights. One of the best stops on... More

By far the best B&B I staying at during this trip to Ireland. Jim & Regina were warm, welcoming, knowledgeable, accommodating, & attentive to everyone's needs. Very warm, cozy entrance/living room area. I had an extended stay, and they were exceptionally accommodating to my needs. They always tidied my room when I went out though I never figured out how...

Located in the city centre of Clifden, this is a lovely typical b&b. Great hospitality, the owners gave us some very good suggestions of things to do in the stunning area. Breakfast made by Regina is superb! A tip would be an electric kettle in the room, so that you can make some tea.
