“Relaxing Stay in Dun Ri”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

We stayed in Dun Ri on 5 and 6 August 2013. Michael our host provided us with a clean and comfortable room for two. The beds were extremely comfortable, fluffy pillows, warm duvets, hot shower and great breakfast. The staff in the breakfast room were very friendly and although busy, did not seem rushed and had time to smile and chat with the guests.
Michael made a special effort to contact us after check out, as we had left something in the room, thank you Michael!
Would definitely recommend Dun Ri, great location close to the centre of town and yet on a peaceful side road.
If you are thinking of visiting Clifden, think of staying in Dun Ri.

We visited again recently and have nothing but a positive review to give. All our needs were met and we enjoyed our stay very much. A lovely room and excellent breakfast. Very friendly as always and helpful with information. A guest lounge is also available to relax. Wi-Fi is now available in all rooms and it worked perfectly for us. We have always felt it is a well run place and again we would recommend it. In town and with parking.

My sister and I, together with our parents, stayed for two nights at the Dún Rí last weekend. We could not recommend it highly enough - nothing was too much trouble for our hosts Michael and Eileen, the rooms are quiet and well-appointed and the delights of Clifden are less than a minute away. The wide choice at breakfast time sets the Dún Rí apart from other B&Bs, the guest lounge was well-appointed with books, internet access, etc, and the designated parking is a bonus. I cannot think of a better place to stay when exploring Clifden and beyond.

For the third time now we have spent a couple of nights (three, this time) in Dun Ri Guest House, Clifden. The fact we return here the last couple of years when we stay in Clifden says it all. A beautiful house with own parking (might be needed in Clifden), nice, clean and spacious rooms. Very kind host and hostess (Michael and Eileen) and an excellent location to explore Clifden as wel as the Connemara and county Galway. If you like to be treated well as a guest who is looking for a good place to stay, book here and you will not be disappointed. Thanks to the good care of the owners, the well served breakfast in the morning and the perfect acommodation, the succes of your stay in Clifden can only become bigger by staying at this place. Located a less than a two minute walk from the center of Clifden where you can find pubs (with live music), restaurants and all kinds of shops.

The Dun Ri is a guesthouse and not a B and B. it is more like a little hotel, which is fine, but it lacks the friendliness that you find at Irish B and Bs. Pros: large spacious clean room, very comfortable firm bed, hot shower, very close to town but on a quiet street, generous amounts of parking. Cons: busy breakfast room with a very average breakfast selection - nothing exceptional, no particular charm to the place.

Stayed two nights and had a very enjoyable time. Parking is just outside and free, our room was well furnished very clean and comfortable. A good location in town with an easy walk to shops and pubs. Our breakfast was great, would recommend.

On a very cold and miserable Connemara day when we cancelled plans to go to Inishmore and called in to the Clifden visitor centre for somewhere warm and cosy to stay, how glad we were that they suggested amongst others, Dun Ri Guesthouse. It was indeed, warm, welcoming, well located and with adjacent parking so that we did not have to splash through the rain with cases in hand. Our room was very well appointed and maintained with obvious attention to detail. The family run hosts were helpful and use of their guest computer saved us lugging in electronic devices in the rain. Tea, coffee, a generous biscuit supply, and ample reading material were all supplied, as well as the usual TV, etc. Breakfast was hot and hearty with plenty of staff to look after our needs. We left with fond memories and no complaints. Good value for money too.
