Sharamore House B&B
Ranked #8 of 45 Clifden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 15, 2013

Sharamore House is an outstanding place to stay. John and Sue Brittain, owners/operators, are real quality people. We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with them and their family.

This is a great location for exploring the beautiful Connemara area. Hiking Omney Island, the National Park, Innishbofin, and visiting Kylemore Abbey are all musts. John and Sue were great at providing information, maps and advice for our daily adventure. The town of Clifden is delightful and only a few minutes away. Marconi's and Guys are great places to eat, and make sure you stop in and see Shane at Ferguson Fine Wines.

Let me set the record straight. The breakfasts are awesome. These folks can cook, and the ingredients are top cabin. Our room was clean, bright and overlooked Streamstown Bay.

I can't imagine staying anywhere else if I were visiting the Connemara area.

I do have 2 regrets: 1)Not having Sue's pancackes until the last day, and 2) Not booking a day of fishing with John.

The room was very comfortable, there was no trouble having a single, the breakfasts were terrific (many options and plenty of fruit and yoghurt offered). We were welcomed and given good advice on walking. Sue and John obviously know Connemarra well as walkers and fishers and can give first hand advice.While staying here we especially enjoyed dinner at Paddy Coynes pub in Tully Cross. Also Olivers pub in Cleggan - it was nicer to get out to a pub than dinner in Clifden.

Room Tip: We had exceptionally hot weather and the room near the front door was cooler than the ones upstairs,

Thank you for your review and we are glad you enjoyed Connemara and your stay with us. The Connemara mountains are wonderful and the walk up Benlettery which you did is one of the best even in an official "heat wave"!

Departing Ballyvaughan we paused at the picturesque seaside village of Kinvarra, home of 11th century Dunguarie Castle, before passing through Galway to Oughterard and on to Clifden, another village rated amongst Irelands prettiest. Sharamore House our home for that evening is a few kilometres north of the town, overlooking the inlet from the ocean; the view of which we enjoyed from our room. Sue made us feel welcome and gave us important advice about Clifden; its one way street setup, eating venues and a recommendation that we travel the Sky Road around the inlet. At the Town Square, with dozens of people enjoying the sun outside one of the many pubs, we discovered a jewellery shop which all ladies should put on their ‘must visit’ list; O’Dalaigh Jewellers, in High St. A couple of items from their ‘Ripples in the Sand’ range accompanied us back home. The return to our B&B was via Sky Road and it is recommended for all; but take care as it is very narrow in places. John conducts fishing trips so when I saw fish on the breakfast menu, there was no hesitation in ordering it. It was scrumptious. The combination of Clifden and Sharamore House is a must for travellers along the west coast.

We loved the place. Extremely well maintained and lovely bedrooms. The breakfast was excellent as well. Thank you Sue & John for your lovely hospitality. We regretted that we were there for only one day this time. Hopefully be back for a longer stay later.

Connemara is beautiful and Sharamore House was the perfect spot to stay; It is located just outside of Clifden, an ideal town to visit for music and food, but best to stay out on the country a few miles. Our hosts Sue and John had great advice on where to visit, particularly the best music in town. Breakfast was perfect, the rooms and beds just right, and great views to the bay,

I booked a weekend here for myself and my dad for his 60th as the B and B also runs sea fishing days out. John and Sue are the owners and could not have been more friendlier or helpful. John especially as due to the weather we were unsure of being able to get out fishing but he got us out and got a good day of fishing. Really cant recommend them enough as we'll be coming back later in the year
