“Excellent Stay”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We arrived at Buttermilk Lodge guest house following suggestion of a B&B owner in Killarney. What a charming guest house with very nicely decorated rooms impeccable cleanliness and a warm welcoming atmosphere. Cathriona and Patrick were most gracious as owners. Cathriona was most helpful in directing us to the area which is just breathtaking. The guest house was within walking distance to the centre of the very charming town of Clifdern.The breakfast was fantastic as was the service. Cathriona was kind enough to suggest and reserve accomodations at our next destinations. Buttermilk Lodge Guest House is a winner, we suggest strongly to travellers to visit this beautiful area and this unique and warm guest house.

We stayed for 2 nights at Buttermilk Lodge. It was a great location with easy access to town. We received a warm welcome and the owners had lots of information and maps if you needed them.
The breakfasts were very nice. The rooms were a nice size and we had everything we needed. We had afternoon tea at Walshes Bakery, very good and dinner at Mannions which was also good.

Clifden and its surrounds are so delightful and this B&B is one of the best we have experienced over many years. We were greeted with afternoon tea in a cosy sitting room and there was lots of information available for walks and dining. Our room was spacious with superb views and had everything we needed. Breakfast was sensational and the services for washing and cleaning like a classy hotel. It is a beautiful B&B run in a very professional manner. Highly recommend. Only one negative - we felt the room was a bit cluttered as we like space to put things. We were travelling for two months so needed places to put our things.

A great place to stay, delicious breakfast and comfortable rooms. When we arrived we were offered tea and cake and a folder with all the menus for the local restaurants and pubs, their location on a map and when they had live music. In the room there was a folder of local walks and a booklet on walks in Connemara. A packed lunch can be ordered for the next day and there is a drying room which luckily we didn't need. A five minute walk takes you into the town. The friendly owners are a wonderful source of information. Highly recommended but you need to like collectible cows, thank goodness I didn't have to do the dusting.

Great stay at the guesthouse. Very comfortable and spacious. Owners friendly and very helpful, gave great suggestions on both dinner and next days activities, one of our favorite stays in Ireland thanks to these suggestions. Couldn't have been more helpful and breakfast deliciouse. It was my friends first time staying in a B&B/Guesthouse, and now they're sold on them.

My nephew and I stayed in Clifden. The Buttermilk Lodge is a great location. It is an easy walk to town (downhill). Coming back is a bit harder but if you have spent enough time in the pubs, you won't notice! The room had two beds and a bathroom. Breakfast was good. They packed a lunch for us which was nice. We were busy during the day. My nephew rented a bike and made several of the available loops. I took out on foot and walked the upper and lower Sky Road loop. Great views and farms and animals and fresh air! No sidewalks but not a lot of traffic in the fall.

Room Tip: We were downstairs. Even though we didn't have to go upstairs to the room, if you are on foot...
