“Courtesy, quietness and cleanliness”
Reviewed May 19, 2011

This B&B is certainly the best place to stay if you want to explore Connemara. We had a great time there. The courtesy and the helpfulness of his owner, the quitness and cleanliness of his rooms and the location of the hotel (Clifden, city centre) are the perfect mix for a relaxing holyday in one of the nicest region of Ireland. Moreover, the price of rooms are very reasonable and we got a very good value for what we paid.

Spotless, friendly, beautiful guest area of sitting room dinning area and kitchen, presentation of breakfast top class, warm homemade scones and brown bread. Continental breakfast but even had pancake mix to make your own

Two sisters traveling in Ireland went to Clifden without a reservation on a busy weekend. We found availability at Gannon's B&B and couldn't have been more pleased, even though we had to share a bed. We decided to ask about a staying a second night. Our room, the shared bathroom and the kitchen/lounge area were very nicely furnished to the last detail and very, very clean. You could see the care that was taken with every touch. The owners are wonderful and have lots of information about the area. I would highly recommend Gannon's and would stay there again. We had no problem with street parking, there seemed to be enough. There is a market across the street and walking distance to pubs and restaurants. Would be a great base for a longer stay in the area. One flight of stairs.

We spent 10 days travelling around Ireland and without a doubt this was the best value for money. The place is gorgeous! The Gannon's are great hosts. Everything you need is there including laundry, really big couches, huge TV, comfortable beds and stunning decor. Nearly forgot the breakfast - magnificent!!!! Do not leave Ireland until you stay here

We stayed at Gannon's for two nights. We were met on arrival by Gerry (owner)- couldn't ask for a better host. Friendly, relaxed and accommodating. Entire accommodation was spotlessly clean. The interior is finished to the highest of standards. The kitchen and living area is accessible 24/7. A great space that has everything we could have possibly need during our stay, from tea and coffee facilities to the utensils for cooking. Breakfast was excellent, homemade scones and bread along with fresh fruit and cereals. Delicious and healthy start to the day. Each morning the owners came to the kitchen to say hello at breakfast time, adding to a lovely touch to the whole experience. Highly recommend staying at Gannon's B&B. You will be surprised by what you get for your money!! Location couldn't be better right at the heart of the town.

We only went away for 3 days but the weather was so bad for the 1st day we headed back early from Westport via Clidfen. Having not booked anything, we were looking for a B&B, somewhere central but quiet. When we got to Clifden, there was not much happening but we decided to stay. We stopped in the square and immediately spotted Gannon B&B. Bad weather, me grumpy, bad roads - really set the scene!! We met the owner Siobhan and enquired about the B&B. Siobhan took us for a tour -
This was no ordinary B&B, Not only was there a fab king size bed with en-suite but we were also given complete access to the kitchen and lounge area- It was a brill apartment (for the B&B rate) Huge TV in the lounge, very comfy, great view of the main square in Clifden. We booked on the spot. As it was midweek, the town was quiet so we went for a short walk. Because of the apartment and facilities, we decided to cook for ourselves that evening. The apartment had everything we need - it was great. When we came back from the walk, the stove had been lit and the place was lovely & warm. Gerry (Siobhans) hsband had lit the fire for us - more bonus points. He also prepared the breakfast the next day - really healthy continental which we really enjoyed.

We absolutely loved every minute of our stay and even stayed for a second night. I'd recommend it to any visitor to Clifden. great place, Great hosts as well. I think this was their first year open but very high standard all round.

  • Liked — The fact that it was advertised as a B&B but offered so much more facilities
  • Disliked — Street Parking
