“Clean, friendly and close to town”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

I've just spent two nights at Macliam Lodge and would recommend it to other visitors to Clon. I have family there and went for the weekend. Maeve was very thoughtful and even invited my brother for breakfast! I can't see many hotels or B&Bs doing that!

Bless her, Maeve listened when I said that I like my eggs very, very well done (cremated would be an accurate description!) and although she felt a bit embarassed about doing it, the eggs were eggsactly (sorry!) the way I like them.

Will definitely go back again. Clean, great breakfast and friendly. Close enough for a nice walk into town but away from all the weekend noise.

Room Tip: My room overlooked the front, so a bit of occasional traffic, not noisy.

Over the years I have stayed in most of the hotel options in Clon, this one is very good value and offers a nice balance of comfort, friendliness and a good breakfast. What more do you want, when the town provides the base for the true West Cork experience. I also like their use of solar power and heat pump technology. In my opinion, the best guest house in town, and only a very short walk from everything.

We picked Clonakilty because we wanted a base to explore the area, both east and west; this was a good central place to start from. Macliam Lodge host and hostess could not have been nicer. Maeve even picked up our groceries for us and took back to Lodge so we could go on our way out of town for the day. We enjoyed our local cheeses, fresh bread and wine in the living room area later. The common rooms and bedrooms are neat, clean, attractively decorated and quiet--no views. Breakfasts were fine but nothing special; hot "Irish" cooked to order. Did have the famous "blood pudding"--try it if you dare. Would have appreciated offerings of the many local cheeses and fresh breads and scones. Maeve was very helpful with advice on local restaurants, things to see in area, directions, pubs, music, etc. We were there for Int'l Guitar Festival; great music! The walk into the town proper is only about 1/2 mile.....not far except not so great in the dark for a late return. Heat is set to come on/off certain times and we did have to ask for heat in the later evening as it was getting quite chilly; hosts very accomodating. We almost missed Inchydoney Beach which is one of the most amazing beaches ever. (Not mentioned anywhere in my research of area!) Get directions and go; but return before dark as road is narrow, long and windy.

Room Tip: Lodge on main road; you might want to get room toward rear of building.

We stayed for 3 nights here whilst attending a wedding in Roscarberry. Nicely located at the edge of the village but an easy walk into town. Room was good but the TV was a little small, not that we used it much. Free Wi-Fi was a great plus. Breakfast is great - go for the Full Irish breakfast - sausages and bacon are fantastic.

Only downside was that the car parking only allows for about 6 cars and one space is blocked by a tree, so one night we had to park in the street.

We had a lovely stay at Macliam Lodge in Clonakilty. Our room was really beautiful and it had everything we needed, kettle, hair-dryer etc.. The breakfast was absolutely wonderful!
Thanks for a warm welcome, we'll be back.

Wonderful B&B. Right in the centre of town yet still nice and quiet spot. The owner apologised to us for having to put us in their least fancy room, as we booked last minute and it was the only room left. I was surprised by this apology as I could not find a single fault with the room. Nice sized cosy room with a very comfy bed and a nice big bathroom.
Breakfast was lovely and served by the very friendly and welcoming owner of the house.
Will defiantly stay here again if Im staying in Colakilty again.

Big place with lots of rooms. More efficient than charming. Good beds, but pillows a bit hard. Showver not to hot and hot water takes a while to appear. Good wifi. Huge selection of cerials for breakfast with fruit. Also they had cheese. The best breakfast at a b&b yet. Room smallish. Toilet door slammed into bed when opening.

A little outside town, but walking distance. Allthough not 5 minutes as they say on webpage. More like 10 minutes.

More a lodge than a B&B. If you wish it to be discrete and quiet - this is the place.
