This is a magical place, beautifully located overlooking Clifden Bay with great views from the bedrooms. The warmth of Paddy and Julia's welcome make you feel at home as soon as you arrive, the house is very comfortable and beautifully decorated, and the food is superb, with locally grown produce and great attention to detail.

Such a unique, eclectic, eccentric and utterly wonderful experience. Paddy and Julia are so genuinely welcoming and the perfect hosts in an extraordinary atmosphere. Enjoyed the adorable pugs, each room, the endlessly interesting antiques and curios, the sparkling views of the Clifden Bay, the wonderful food and most memorablel dining area under graceful tree branches draped overhead.

We had a lovely stay at the Quayhouse. Paddy and Julia are extremely welcoming in this lovely, interesting, old house. It is beautifully furnished and very comfortable. The breakfast was the best bit for me though - the food was beyond delicious!

I and ten others stayed here for my stag and had the most fantastic time. Despite having to deal with eleven rather raucous men (and me dressed as a vulture!)...Paddy and Julia bent over backwards to accommodate us, even popping out to buy Marmite when requested by one of the guys! Now that is great service! The Quay House is...

Simply a fantastic stay! The house is lovely and full of character, with an eclectic collection of art and antiques that will keep you entertained at every turn. The hospitality is some of the best that I have experienced anywhere. Nothing was too much trouble, and Paddy and Julia (and the pugs!) couldn't have made us feel any more welcome....

Julia and Patrick were very welcoming indeed, and did not bat an eyelid when two gentlemen appeared at their front door wanting a double room. We got the fabulous 'Sky' room, which has the biggest bed we ever slept in and wonderful views over the harbour - the rooms with harbour views really are worth a little extra - it's...

We had the sky room overlooking the harbor. The bed was huge and comfortable. The warm breakfast was good and lovely arranged. To the town centre it is only a short walk. We had difficulties in getting really warm water for a hot shower. But that is the only negative thing to say. The hosts are very welcoming.

What a wonderful place to stay! Words fail to describe the few days that we spent here, it was our 25th anniversary and what a welcome we received from a very personable hostess, a lovely lady with her guests interests at heart. Our African themed room lived up to its name with beautiful views overlooking the bay. The entire guest...

We spent five special nights at the Quay House in Clifden. What a fun and interesting place! The décor is varied from room to room. Our room was spacious and very comfortable. Julia and Paddy are delightful innkeepers and very helpful. The breakfasts were delicious. The town of Clifden is within walking distance and has several nice restaurants. The Quay...

Stayed here autumn 13 about three times overnight only. I would rate the breakfast in this place as probably one of the finest I have had anywhere. Looks like a great place for a romantic weekend. Eccentric stunning location very close to all amenities. Try the poached egg and smoked salmon.
