Coastguard Station - near Clifden

Hi experts.

Can anyone tell me where the above is located on a map? I've looked at Google Earth near Clifden (it's supposed to be located on the Sky Road) but I can't find it. The website says it's adjacent to D'arcy Castle but I can't locate that one either ;-((

I was hoping to stay at there soon, but it would need to be fairly near Clifden and I can't make out whether it is or not.

Just where the Sky branches down to the lower sky take the left then 20yards turn right onto the entry gate http://goo.gl/maps/qLWB7

Great place to stay if a fair walk into town The tower is a quirky option if staying as a couple.

Thanks Tony. Yes, noted the distance from Clifden and definitely not easily walkable. Excuse my ignorance, but would Clifden have taxis to take us to and fro' after the pub?
