Clifden Arts week & lodging?

We, three sisters, will be traveling in the Clifden area Wednesday, Sept 23 or Thursday, Sept 24 of Art Week. We had not heard of this Art week, till today in a post on trip advisor, which stated that "in a couple of weeks there will be loads of visitors for Arts week (10 days) and they will no doubt be exploring from Galway to Westport". We have most of our B&B's booked, but planned to book these as we traveled through this area. Because of this festival, will lodging be at a premium? Should we re-think this and try to book a B&B in the area soon before we leave the states next week? Thanks, we appreciate any help!

i think you will be fine sinigirl and the fact that you are staying midweek also is a good sign - mostly the majority of people will go for the weekend. Clifden arts week is actually a lovely week to go - there will be plenty of activity, music and craic. I don't think you will be ripped off re. lodging - there are plenty of places to stay and you will be able to pick from a variety. You say you have your b and b's booked already - so you should be okay. If you don't have any westport ones booked at the minute try McCarthys B and B right in town - its great - but call them couple days before to make sure they have rooms for you.

Arts week runs 17th - 27th there were still a few vacancies around town and mid week should be fine. I will be looking at booking in town, rates will be as normal. I havn't booked yet due to unknown dates. But I will be there at some point (don't think I will be looking at Foyles).
