“the lady of the house treated you as one of her own. highly impressed...”
Reviewed April 10, 2010

the B&B is just a stones through away from the centre and with very keen prices for a stay that, to be honest, is as good as or maybe even better than any hotel on all accounts. Lovely breakfasts, great beds,easy of access facilities which would be grand for all, and best of all the craic we had with the lady of the house was 90. I have to say the staff was very willing to help and i'd a brilliant stay... i know for sure i'll be back...

We stayed with Maeve, John and family and couldn't have been made feel more comfortable and welcome. Initially I was concerned staying in a B+B as we had our 5 year old son with us, but honestly I don't think we'd find a more family friendly accommodation. It's location, cleanliness, atmosphere and comfort was top class. If you were with or without children, young or old this accommodation is sure to suit.

This was a return visit to Macliam Lodge and Maeve and John welcomed us like long lost family. They soon made friends with new members of our group and Maeve's wonderful dry humour had us crying with laughter. Thanks go to John for fixing Pup's bike and for recommending the superb alternative route to Dingle via the Healy Pass.

When one goes on an adventure, there are always unexpected joys. Meeting Maeve was definitely one of those joys! She provided a warm and cozy home-away-from-home and lifted our spirits with her wit and charm.

The lodge is situated in a convenient location, so getting to and from the local attractions is easy on foot or by car.

The food was delicious, the rooms were warm and well appointed, and Maeve graciously provided us with great suggestions of things to do and places to visit in Clonakilty.

I look forward to visiting there again as soon as I can!

How lucky we were to have stayed at Macliam Lodge.

Maeve is the most delightful spirit, animated, self-assured, and efficient. She visited all during our stay, especially during the exquiste Irish breakfast. My two sisters, wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our visit with her and her husband.

We couldn't stay up late enough to enjoy the traditional Irish music at De Barra's Bar, but did enjoy a "pint"

Macliam Lodge is conveniently located about 1/2 mile from Clonakilty town center. Maeve O'Grady Williams and her husband, John, are outstanding hosts and ensure that their guests are comfortable. The home is lovely and the rooms are well appointed. I will definitely be back anytime I am in West Cork and would definitely recommend this B&B to anyone.
