Lovely hotel in gorgeous town ,staff all so helpful and friendly. For Connemara this is such a great base .My favourite part is the Station bar itself ,great character and charm but all the modern conveniences this hotel meets the grade.

Hello Joella_10,

Thank you for your review. Clifden is a fantastic town and a great base to stay while enjoying all the area has to offer. Our Station House Bar has a large quantity of the old railways memorabilia, which adds to the charm and character of the building.

I hope you will return to the Clifden Station House in the future.

Kind Regards,

Claire

Just stayed in the Station House 2 weekends ago and I have to say that I was soo impressed with it from the minute we walked inthe door. I was there with a group of 10 people and we all were of the same opinion. The bedrooms were very comfortable and we all got located on the same floor beside one another which was great. We ate in the hotel on the Friday night and the food was 5 star quality. Coming from a hotel background myself I could not fault the hotel. We also spent quite a few hours in the hotel bar opposite the hotel (station Bar) and it again was fantastic, great atmosphere and we ate here on the saturday night and again it was great food and service. The Hotel Manager (Ian) even came out with a tray of champagne for us as we had an engagement in the group. A fanatstic touch. The Hotel is located about 2 minute walk from Clifden Town Centre where there is loads happening with great pubs and fanastic traditional music. Would highly recommend the hotel and clifden town. I have already told a lot of people about the hotel and look forward to visiting again myself. Well done to all involved!!!

Dear J99636,

Thank you for your positive feedback on the Clifden Station House. We do get a large number of good comments on our food and service, and it is always noted that the atmosphere and our hotel product are very enjoyable and comfortable. I have passed your thanks onto our Hotel Manager, Wilson.

We are located in Clifden so it's great that you can park your car and leave it for the weekend.

All the best to the happy couple.....we are a great venue for weddings also!

Stayed here with my daughter as she was going Horse Riding in Cleggan and hats off it was a very pleasant experience. Our room on the first floor was comfortable and clean. The staff at the pool were very helpful and friendly which mirrored the lady at reception. The food in the restaurant was very good as was breakfast. I wanted to watch a sports event in the bar that evening and the staff put it on straight away. Well done Station House I will return

Dear Kildareman1,

Thank you for your review. Clifden is a fantastic base to enjoy all the activities that Connemara has to offer. Cleggan is particularly nice, as you can go horse riding on the beach!
Our staff enjoy working at the Clifden Station House and our motto is 'Go the Extra Mile....We Do!'

Until your next visit,

Dear hightower69,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Clifden Station House. We get a lot of good comments abouts our breakfast, all of our produce are sourced locally as much as possible. Our pancakes are a big hit with our younger guests, but I have seen many an adult have them aswell. I hope to see you back with us again.

Dear lostkeysfound,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review on the Clifden Station House.

I'm the "tall guy with strawberry blonde hair with glasses" and your very welcome. In relation to our mussels, they come from Killary harbour and they taste great. I am delighted to read that your kids enjoyed their stay with us as well, families are a very big part of what we do here and we try to look after them in the best possible manner. I hope to see both you and your family back in Clifden soon.

Kind Regards,

Wilson Bird

Spent a recent weekend at the Clifden station house with our young children and also our in laws. Our daughter celebrated her birthday and the staff were so kind in helping us to arrange a cake etc. Rooms very comfortable, great food and comfortable surroundings. hotel is spotless and all staff very friendly and helpful.
This was our second visit and we will be sure to come back as the value for money is excellent and the standards remain very high.
this hotel makes its guests (from the very very young to old!) feel welcome and special.The management are clearly tuned into what works as we met many people who return time and time again.
