“Room with a view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

If you are searching for a wonderful place to stay in the west of Ireland, this is the place. Whether taking in the views (after all the coastguards needed to have a good view) or enjoying a snug evening in front of an open fire, you will not be disappointed.
The restorer/owner tommy wheel an is a gentlemen and is on hand to chat and give advice on the things to do and see!!

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2010

The Coastguard Station was tastefully renovated into 8 apartments about 10 years ago by the current owner, Tommy Whalen. Our apt. had a sitting room, full kitchen , sunroom, 2 bedrooms and bath upstairs. The view is fabulous at the junction of upper and lower Sky Rd. The town of Clifden is about a ten minute drive and the Connemara area has alot to offer in the way of sightseeing, hiking, cycling, sailing. After traveling around Ireland for seven weeks, it was one of our favorite places. Tommy is a great host and is always available and helpful to answer any questions.
