“FANTASTIC !!!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

We spent 3 nights in Cornerstones in late August and we really loved our stay : the location of the B&B is really nice and convenient, ten minutes from Clifden and 5 minutes from the Connemara National Park and Kylemore Abbey, in a very quiet place with a great view.
The room was very clean, and breakfast is just unique : fried eggs or scrambled eggs with bacon and sausage may be the best we have ever had, and what about the homemade scones !!! Really fantastic !!!
Last but not least, the family who owns the B&B is very very very kind. They are very committed to making the B&B a wonderful place to stay, and they do succeed.
If you wish to spend a few days in Connemara, do not hesitate, do come to Cornerstones !

We came from France for a trip in Connemara in September. We had a very warm welcome. The Landlady is a great cook. The place is spotless and Eithna is very helpful . We stayed for two days and felt like family.

My wife and I spent two nights at Cornerstones and loved it. Great rural location between Clifden (banks) and Letterfrack (Connemara Natl park, pubs). Many scenic drives nearby. The upstairs room was fine with a nice view. The breakfasts were delicious, and included a choice of entrees plus cereals, yogurt, scones,. etc. Served from 8-9:30, so we could eat early or sleep in a bit.

But the best parts of the stay were Eithna and Sean, who could not have been more helpful and hospitable. After we drove from Shannon, Eithna let us check in early to get some much needed sleep. She gave great tips and directions, and had a discount available to Kylemore Abbey and gardens for the next day (worth a visit). It was a very warm and friendly welcome to Ireland.

Cornerstones and Connemara were a great start to our Ireland visit, and we highly recommend both.

Room Tip: Not sure if all upstairs rooms have restricted headroom in the ensuite. Not really a problem, but ca...

We just loved it. My boyfriend and I spent one night at the Cornerstone B&B here i August as we were traveling around Ireland. It was absolutely the best place that we saw that week, with the most magnificent view from our bedroom. The service was perfect. It was the daughter of the house that took us in when we arrived, and she was really good at recommending us where to go and what to see. The B&B is perfect in terms of location to Kilmare Abbey, National Park, Sky Road, Clifden city and prop. much more, which we didn't get the chance to see. The family was really nice and pleasant to talk to, the room was clean and quit, breakfast was delicious and the price was good for the service provided. A recommendation would be not to arrive after sunset. It can be difficult to find the correct way as there is no street light what so ever. To a big city person like me, it was really in the middle of nowhere, but an extremely beautiful and comfortable no where. We liked it so much that we intend to go there again in September, book a few more days at Cornerstone and see more of the area.

Visiting for a long weekend to attend a wedding in area, the B&B was beautiful, the ensuite room cosy and we couldn't have asked for a warmer welcome from Eithna and Sean. The breakfasts were amazing with a special dish every day and always a very good start to the day. When we left our car at the wedding venue Sean kindly drove us to pick it up the next day. Beautiful place and lovely people, we will certainly return for another visit.

Room Tip: one set of stairs to rooms, but all rooms facing the wonderful views..

I stayed with my partner in August 2013, the place is spotless and the host were very welcoming. They give us lots of information on what to do and where to go eat (Off the square at Clifden), where we had our best meal in our whole trip (Dublin, Cork, Wicklow, Sligo, Waterford, etc).

Great suggestion.

In the morning they proceed to serve us the best breakfast we ever had in a hotel or B&B or my house!!!! I mean it.

And for the really picky like me, I had never seen cutlery so shiny and clean in a long time!!! (and I was in a castle just two days before)

We stayed in 12 different B&b's during our trip and this one was our favorite. It had a lovely view of the Connemara mountains. It was a little in the country so it took some time to find but its pretty close to Connemara national park and Kylemore abbey. It was a peaceful location and Eithna was the sweetest lady in the world. She didn't talk to you because she felt like she had to. She talked to you to help you with your trip, to get to know you, and be genuinely friendly. She gave us lots of info of stuff to see and do and she didn't rush through it. She really wanted to help. Breakfast was very good. I liked how they had a special of the day. My husband liked the salmon scone. I will make sure we stay here again on our next trip to Ireland.
