“nice place for a night........or more...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

We stayed for one night in this BnB and were very happy.
We had two very big and well furnished family rooms.
We were helped by a very nice woman who made everything for them to have a nice stay.
She made big efforts to speak with everybody, including not english speaking ones.
The breakfeast was very good with plenty to suit everybody.
Thanks again to her for this nice moment.

We spent our last night in Ireland in this charming B&B. The views of the Atlantic are amazing and the B&B was easy to find. Margaret met us with a wave and a smile and proved to be a warm, lively and entertaining hostess! Our room was large, comfortable and spotless. She recommended that we take the Clifden Sky Road on our way to Galway (we would not have taken this road otherwise) and we were glad that she did. The views are amazing. This was the perfect ending to a wonderful vacation!

Margaret, the proprietor of Atlantic View country house is delightful, lively and entertaining. She met us in the car park and greeted us warmly, as she did with all the guests we observed. We had numerous conversations with her and family members during our stay. They made us feel like part of their family. Margaret is a real hoot to be with. She showed care and concern for our comfort and well being all during our stay. She also provided a recommendation for our next stay, just north of Dublin, which was a wonderful experience.

We had asked for a large room and were not disappointed. We had three beds and a private lounging area with a couch & easy chair. This made it easy to sort through our bags with plenty of room to relax during our three day stay. We even took time to watch a little TV some evenings.

Views from our room and the breakfast area were lovely. The house is a short two kilometers from the village and is extremely easy to find. The country environment made for a peaceful and quiet location for a very pleasant stay.

My mother, sister and I stayed at Atlantic View B&B house during our trip to Ireland. We had such a lovely stay at this clean and spacious B&B. Our hostess was very friendly and helpful. Beautiful breakfast room with true "Atlantic Views". Great base for exploring the Connemara area. You must do the Clifden Sky Road while you are there! We highly recommend this B&B for anyone passing through Clifden. However, do know that this is located a short drive from town centre, not really in walking distance. We went to O'Connelly's Pub - great Irish music!

My eldest daughter and I landed in Dublin on Feb 18th early in the morning and drove West to County Galway and Clifden for our 1st Irish B & B. Just driving was a taxing experience for us Americans and the day was long. It was dark when we finally found the Atlantic View outside of Clifden. Cold, tired, and confused our hostess Maggie met us at the door with a huge smile and welcome. She showed us our room where everything was neat and comfortable. To help us weather the February winter she also had electric blankets on the beds. We slept really well that night. Next morning a light breakfast and pictures and on our way. The views from this B & B were great and the location was really close to Kylemore Abbey which was our stop for that day. A wonderful indoctrination to Irish hospitality. I will go stay with Maggie again on my next trip.
