I stayed one night at the lighthouse last week and I loved it. It's very isolated which is exactly what I wanted to blow off the cobwebs. So peaceful and quiet and Roie and Mike made me feel very welcome and couldn't do enough for me. Mike even got up at 4:45 am to help me up to the lighthouse to take photos as I was on crutches and wanted to get good shots of the early morning light. Above and beyond!
Six course meal sitting around one table with the other guests which was nice as I was travelling alone.
I can't recommend this place enough for couples, especially photographers and hill walkers.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Clare Island stands guard at the entrance to Clew Bay, off Ireland’s western Atlantic coast. For almost two centuries, the island’s lighthouse has been a nautical landmark perched high on the craggy cliffs, watching over Achill, Westport and beyond. Once a safe haven for sailors, this heritage property now offers accommodation and sanctuary of a different kind. Room rate includes bed, breakfast and dinner. ... more less
