We recently stayed at the Claddagh Inn and were blown away by how much we enjoyed our time there. Our comfortable room made for a great night's rest and it was great to wake up with a view of St Mary's Bay in the morning. Pat and Carol are excellent hosts and very familiar with the local attractions.
The optional dinner was a definite win - one of the best meals we had on our trip, with homemade soup, fresh snow crab, pasta and Carol's delicious apple crumble to top it off. And being able to tuck into padraig's folly, the in-house pub, for a drink and a good chat before bed made our evening even better. If only all B&B's had a pub - so civilized and a great way to get to know fellow travelers (if you wish).
Scotch-lovers: they have a great collection to sample from; along with Yellowbelly Red ale on tap and other beer and wine selections.
We would stay here again without any hesitation and have already recommended it to a few people planning their own Newfoundland holidays.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Claddagh Inn, once the Saint Ann's Presentation convent, was transformed into a quaint traditional Irish style Inn by local craftsmen. Completely refreshed by its new owners in 2011 and 2012, it boasts 6 private en-suite rooms. There's a spacious honeymoon suite with majestic king-size canopy bed and spa bath and also a double room available for family travellers. "Padraig's Folly" is a cozy guest pub or "snug" featuring a fine selection of whiskeys, a local craft beer on tap, and other refreshments for guests to enjoy during dinner, in the pub, or while enjoying the view of peaceful St. Mary's Bay from the deck. This eclectic pub is furnished with re-claimed furniture from the nun's chapel. St. Mary's Bay Snow Crab is our signature dish in the dinning room where four-course fine dining is offered by reservation. The room features incredible wood work in rich warm textures and is decorated with traditional and international art. The view is remarkable and is a great place to start your traveling day while enjoying a hot three course breakfast in the morning featuring local berries and home made jams. New for 2013: starting in June lunch will be available daily! Bi-lingual service bien sur :) Join us in St. Mary's and enjoy access to the amenities offered by the Irish Loop. Cheers, Salut! ... more less
