Tastefully decorated room, very comfy beds, fluffy warm duvet, great breakfast. Was one of those very chilly wet days and noghg abd we could turn the heating on easily. Radiators got warm in seconds and warm us and the room up quickly. We spent several nights in different locations on a 10 days road trip and heating / dry, not... More

The quiet location just outside Clifden on the beautiful Sky Road (20 mins on foot), the interior design and of course the adorable hosts, Ruth, Stuart, the family, the staff and not forgetting the dogs - all this makes the annual stay indispensable. The Room (Nr 3) is spacious and cozy. Even after so many other B&B's, I think the... More

This is a wonderful B&B with a lovely host (and dogs), most beautiful and comfortable rooms where you get a really excellent breakfast. We spent a week with a family of four with two teenagers at the Hillside Lodge. Very relaxing and active vacation. Only wifi and internet access could be better.

We stayed for a night while walking and cycling in Connemara. This was a perfect place for us - modern, clean rooms, a very nice sitting room full of books, excellent breakfast and Ruth was very friendly and helpful. We walked into town back for dinner, 25 mins each way and a great way to burn off a few calories... More

What a superb B&B. We have stayed in many many B&B's in Ireland over the years. This one ranks as one of the best in our experience. A beautiful room upstairs including a sofa. Host Ruth was very welcoming, and Ella the lovely Labrador was delightfully inquisitive and affectionate.....and we don't even have a dog ourselves. The B&B has an... More

Wonderful stay with Ruth and Ella (the Labrador ) in an enormous room upstairs. Get directions to walk down the road to Clifden Castle. Short walk and you can tour the castle on your own. Walk down the lane to the beach and pub for drinks by the bay. Food is outstanding and cooked to order. Great stay, highly recommend.

This Bed and Breakfast was amazing! Ruth and Stuart are so nice and very welcoming! The view from our bedroom window was beautiful. The room and bathroom was very clean and comfy with plenty of room to move around. I highly recommend this B&B and would definitely stay here again!

In my road tripping career across Europe I've never stayed at such a beautiful B&B before. What makes it so unique is the combination of professionalism in terms of running a B&B, lovely personalities working at that place, as well as the personal touch and care put into the rooms. All of that located just 15 minutes outside Connemara National... More
