A great place to stay! Clifden is a stunning location in the heart of Connemara with everything from Kylemore Abbey to diamond hill and the National Park at your doorstep. The buttermilk lodge is gleaming spotless and Caithríona is an excellent host! A solid 5 stars!

We stayed 15 days in Ireland. Most of the B&B's were really nice. This guesthouse however was outstanding ! We got coffee & Porter cake at arrival. The breakfast was amazing. The rooms were very nice. I would recommend it to anyone. Simply great.

Cathriona’s BnB is full of country character and cows! Plenty of local information is provided for guests.
Good quality accommodation with plenty of hospitality. Lovely breakfasts. Some rooms are upstairs but others are on ground level. We had a lovely view from our room at the front of the house.

“The Buttermilk Lodge is FANTASTIC! From the moment we stepped in the door Pat offered us a cup of Tea and moved our room to the ground floor to accommodate us better. The location is perfect and Pat and Cathriona were very helpful and even provided us some information about family in the area we were trying to reconnect with while in Clifden. The rooms were quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was perfect and the staff was very friendly. This is the best place we stayed while traveling throughout Ireland. Would defiantly stay here again and highly recommend! They thought of everything - even down to a sewing kit in the room. Thank you for a great stay!”

Room tip: Rooms were quiet and perfect location from town
