After a small and lovely email exchange, this was one of our pre-booked B&Bs on our round-trip of Ireland - and boy did it pay off. From the moment Sheila welcomed us at the door until our departure on the next day, we felt completely at home in this wonderfully restored early 19th century house. The room under the roof was very tastefully decorated and offered privacy as well as levels of comfort and convenience that have to be searched for far and wide. After exploring Clifden we enjoyed the warmth (and smell) of a lovely turf fire and were very well taken care of at next morning's breakfast (poached egg and salmon - delicious!).
Thank you, Sheila! All in all an unconditional recommendation!
