Rockmount House
Ranked #14 of 45 Clifden B&B and Inns
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We had a great blue sky day on the Lower Sky Road in late June. The hosts were very friendly and our room was one that had a view of the water. The room was very comfortable and clean. Yes, Lady the dog is charming and we enjoyed the walk with Lady down to the cliffs so much that we did it twice. The view is spectacular. Yes, the Sky Road is narrow, but if you let that keep you from this view, you'll really be missing something. My wife and I agreed that had we to do it over again, we would have spent another day there. We used Trip Adviser quite a bit to review our choices of B&B's, so we'll share that it was a great stay. Comfortable sitting room, clean, nice breakfast etc, but it's the view and it's spectacular!

Room Tip: there is one room with a water view, but if it's daylight you should be outside anyway!

We stayed 3 nights at Rockmount House in May 2012. The house is very nice, our room was very large and comfortable. Warm welcome from the hosts! From the garden you may walk right to the shores. The Sky Road totaly worth it; as does Clifden and the Connemara!

Rockmount house is a clean, nice and peaceful guesthouse, a very friendly service and a beautiful coast! We enjoyed!
We also recommend the Indian restaurant in the center of Clifden. The food was amazing.

Comfortable family room for 4 (2 adults, 2 kids). We didn't have enough time to visit the Cliffs of Moher but these cliffs were breathtaking and the view was beautiful nonetheless. Plus, we had our own special escort, Lady, the collie ! After our whirlwind vacation across Ireland, it was nice to relax in such a beautiful place and comfortable home. The grounds have their own lovely path to the cliffs with wildflowers. The neighboring pastures with grazing sheep was picturesque. Traditional breakfast, delicious ! We enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend, family friendly ! Great Dog !!!

Room Tip: Have kids, great place - Lady, the collie and trampoline in backyard

My sister and I got a warm welcome, hot tea and ginger cookies was just what we needed.

The place and the view from the room was just perfect!! Close to Clifden for dinner and yet totally out where the sky meets the sea!

Also a good base for taking trips in The Connemara National Park, we stayed for 3 days.

We stayed 3 nights there and were lucky with beautiful weather. Enjoyed very much : good situation, "appalling" lower and higher sky road to get there : never to be missed. Paddy and Anne are very welcoming. A pleasure to be with them. Clean, comfortable, much light (cuz large windows). A walk on the trail cliffs is possible from their house : we did it. Really worth it. Excellent breakfast with 4 different choices : all good. This is an address we'll remember and may be go back.

Room Tip: don't remember the number but it was at the backside of the house, looking at the bay. Super.
