“A very relaxed and comfortable hotel.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013 via mobile

This comfortable hotel is a great place to stay when in Connemara. Comfortable and clean rooms with a country house feel. The staff are very friendly and helpful.
The breakfast is fantastic, you will gain weight for sure. I really enjoyed my stay here.

Stayed four nights on a recent holiday to Ireland. Courteous and helpful staff, spacious rooms and great food . Central location. Complimentary breakfasts seemed endless! Minor quibbles were the firm mattress and slow water pressure. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for one with strong water pressure. Also with duvet, if required, and softer mattress, if one pr...

We always visit Foyles restaurant whilst in Clifden. The hotel is well situated in the centre of Clifden and easy for parking. Great family feel and much charm. Restaurant has a great ambience and lovely place to return to. The fish on the menu was exceptional

How lovely and refreshing to find this wonderful comfortable and elegant hotel at the end of a long day. Having spent the previous two nights in a charmless modern hotel in Westport it was such a joy to relax in the welcoming warmth of Foyle's, The room was comfortable and so spacious. The staff were lovely and the breakfast was really good. There was a genuine relaxed family atmosphere in this animal friendly hotel. I would really recommend it.

I stayed for the first time at this hotel right in the centre of Clifden. It is a family run hotel where modern facilities are combined perfectly with old world charm. The room was spacious with period furniture front facing. The hotel is family owned & family run - even a two year old Foyle behind the reception desk. All the staff I met are just as charming as the place itself. Mullarkeys bar is also charming & it has great atmosphere with locals & out-of-towners creating a very relaxed venue. The breakfast is cooked freshly for the individual & is served piping hot with great coffee. My only issue was with a weak shower but upon my observation, I was assured by a family member that the issue was being addressed & new power showers are being installed. Overall,a great place to stay & I would recommend it to anybody.

Room Tip: Look for a room with a power shower.
