Nice welcome and cup of tea ,fire in the fireplace. Pretty house. Bedroom was clean, bed was not the most comfortable. Can walk to town, restaurants, stores and pubs. The three stars because compared to other B and B's we over payed.

We booked a night at the Buttermilk Lodge on the recommendation of a friend who had visited Clifden last year. The room and ensuite bath were very nice and the breakfast was delicious. The proprietors are friendly and helpful in recommending local attractions.
