Sea Mist House is my favourite kind of B & B as it is an older home, tastefully decorated and with a sense that it is truly lived in by a welcoming and gracious hostess. As other reviewers have pointed out, Sea Mist House is ideally located in Clifden, which is itself very attractive. It's an easy walk to the centre of town but still within the quiet part of town and just "a stone's throw" from the ocean. Our room was on one of the upper floors so a bit of a "hike" up the narrow stairs which we have come to expect in Irish B & B's. Our room itself was spacious and as beautifully and thoughtfully decorated as the rest of the house. We did have a sloping roof in the en suite but it simply added to the B & B's charm. And one of us is very tall! Also as noted in other reviews, and this is very important for me, the breakfast served in the conservatory was delicious with a good selection of fresh fruit and a variety of breakfasts which I believe we preordered. All in all, our stay at Sea Mist House is memorable for the happy time we spent there.
