We stayed in this delightful house for one night in summer 2013. The house itself was a beautiful old townhouse practically in the centre of Clifden. There was a lovely relaxed feeling about the place despite the slightly grand architecture. Guests had the run of the place including the comfortable sitting room complete with turf fire. We had a room at the top of the house that was spotlessly clean and very stylishly decorated. Breakfast was simply delicious with fresh produce and perfect poached eggs! The lady of the house, Sheila, was warm and welcoming and was clearly practiced at providing excellent levels of service and comfort. Would love to return.

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.

This is a large place with various levels and rooms but we felt as it we were in our own wing. Our room was huge with a comfortable king size bed. There is a lovely guest lounge with a fireplace and a library half way up the stairs. The breakfast was very good and served in their breakfast room/conservatory. A very easy walk into town, just up the road, but it was quiet in the area. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at Sea Mist for two nights in September 2013. The house is located right near the town center so park your car and walk to the pubs. The house is great and the breakfasts were great. Our only complaint was we were on the third floor and its up a narrow staircase. The roof is slanted there and it was easy to hit your head getting in and out of bed. But we were advised on making the reservation that the room was on that floor. Will book earlier to get a room on a lower floor

Our second visit to Sea Mist House and we were not disappointed. Sheila was just the same as 3 years ago. We felt so at home - our same room and the breakfasts were perfect. All fresh produce and lots of fruit. So handy to the town of Clifden where there is plenty to do. Lots of good coffee places and craft/art galleries to visit. Eating is a pleasure and usually with good music. We will return. thank you Sheila for another memorable stay.

Room Tip: We have stayed at the front of the house on both our stays (close to small road) and slept well even...

We were visiting friends in Clifden and booked at the last minute. Shiela went out of her way to accommodate us and we had a beautiful room with a view of the sea. The house is really lovely and the bedroom was perfect. Sea Mist House is in a perfect location also, just a minute from the centre of Clifden but also very quiet. Breakfast the next morning was one of the best we've had with a great selection. We only stayed one night and would have liked to stay longer and will definitely stay there again.
