We used Gannon's B&B as our 3 night home. Family owned/run and they are terrific people. Worth every Euro paid. Convenient walk to Beach, Skywalk, Harbour, and of course all the great pubs in town. On a cold rainy night returned to find a nice warm fire in the guest living room.

We just spent three nights here and really could not have asked for more. The accommodation is beautifully furnished- lovely mixture of modern and antique. Fluffy towels and a seriously comfy bed! Superb selection of "coffee table" books.
Breakfast was continental with class! Fresh fruit/ cheeses/ cured meats / pancakes - AND the most beautiful scones I have ever tasted( whole meal) I had to stop short of stuffing my pockets with them!
Gerry and his wife are a delight. Charming,welcoming and keen to suggest restaurants/ pubs/ activities. The open plan living area is wonderful for a quiet read or for checking the ever changing scene which is the centre of Clifden
I was tempted to sit up well into the night to enjoy the cosy wood burning stove which welcomed us back after dinner in Clifden.

Room Tip: Our room had a private bathroom which was not ensuite- I was a bit worried - no need . Super bathroo...

We had a lovely stay in this guest house. Our room was large and comfortable, with a massive double bed and a futon bed for our daughter. The use of the spacious living room/kitchen was extremely useful to us (with dishwasher and washing machine) - it meant we could cook the odd dinner, and we didn't have to go to bed as the same time as our toddler. The other family room has a joining room with bunkbeds which seems perfect for those with older children.
It's in the heart of the town and Jerry, the owner, couldn't have been more helpful with information (he even organised a babysitter for us for one evening). I'd recommend this place to anyone with children.

I had booked this B&B through Booking.com. My friend and I needed to change our plans and cut our trip short at the last minute. We went to him in person and explained. He told us that he would refund our money; we just needed to cancel our booking.com reservation, and he would not go ahead and charge us. We even offered to pay him, or pay half so that we wouldn't both be losing out. He assured us it was fine and that he wouldn't charge us. When I got home, he'd charged my card. When called and questioned him, he just said he'd changed his mind. OK. If you were going to charge us, FINE, BUT don't tell us you are going to let us cancel and not charge us, after we made the specific effort to come out there and let you know we had a change in plans. Don't be a coward. Don't say one thing and then do the other. That is complete crap. Honor your word.

We thought this was one of the best value places to stay in Ireland! We had the family room, which was okay, but we think the other rooms were perhaps even better. The common sitting room was great with plenty of seating and a full kitchen so you could enjoy a glass of wine and make some snacks. As the B&B is in the centre, you are surrounded by restaurants for an evening meal. The breakfast was absolutely our favourite...European style with yogurts, fruit, muselli, cheese, meats,soda bread, scones, pancakes, juice and coffee...all buffet style. Everyone was friendly and helpful and we wished we could have stayed another night.

We stayed in the beautiful red room which is massive and nicely decorated overlooking the back which meant that it was quiet. The bathroom was large with a lovely hot shower and a proper hairdryer and free wi-fi. There is a wonderful kitchen and lounge area that you can also use which I imagine would be brilliant for families. The bed was so comfortable! The location could not be better as its practically on the square in the centre of town. We were given a lovely welcome and enjoyed breakfast which was refreshingly different from the usual fry ups you get. We had toast, pancakes, yoghurts, cereal and the freshest scones I think I've ever had! Would definitely stay again.

We enjoyed our stay at the Gannon B&B very much. Extremely comfortable beds, with every thing we could possibly need to make us feel truly at home. From the young woman at the Gannon's Sports Store who helped us check in, to the Gannon's Family themselves, as well as the woman who tended to our rooms and breakfast (which was very good by the way), every one made us feel welcome and comfortable. The location is ideal for exploring Clifden, we have stayed in Clifden 2 other times and this was by far the best accommodations we have found to date. There was a kitchen and living area that we were happy to make use of and a lovely fire that Gerry would get going every evening. We loved it here and am quite sure that you will too. ENJOY!!!
