Our room was lovely and comfortable, with a brief glimpse of the ocean cove from the north window. The continental breakfast was fine and the dining area was pleasant and cheery. Mostly, the hospitality was great. Without his suggestions, I might have missed Mount Battie, which has a surprisingly beautiful vista, overlooking the ocean and the picturesque towns below. Also, he suggested I not miss the sunrise on the property's cove, just a brief walk across the street and down the beach trail. He was right. All in all, a very fine stop, especially for the price.

  • Liked — The host.
  • Disliked — Room was a little tight.

Hubby and I came up to ME for the lobster festival this summer. I booked this hotel earlier in the year just based on the name!! I had never been there before and I just loved the Irish influence.

We left Staten Island NY at 4 in the morning and arrived at the Claddagh at 12 in the afternoon. Alex was kind enough to let us into our room 3 hours early considering the length of our trip. It was comfortable and cozy at the same time. Breakfast was lovely and delicious also. The scones alone are worth the trip! :)

Alex and Siobhan were amazing and so accomodating. Because I casually mentioned I love to drink Irish tea they handed me a teapot and kettle to make my own in the room! Where else can you get better personalized service? We stayed all week and were so happy because we were right in the middle of where we planned to visit. We plan on booking again this winter for next summer.

The Irish use the words lovely and brilliant - and it really does fit.

  • Liked — Clean, friendly and value
  • Disliked — we couldn't take our dogs with us
