Celebrating 40 years of welcoming guests as friends, the Ardagh is now in the third generation of the Bauvet/Berings family. Old fashioned rest, relaxation & the best food Connemara has to offer. One of the last small, family run hotels in Ireland. What was originally a quaint fishing lodge is now the 20 bedrooms of a four star establishment. The Ardagh has been lovingly restored into an unfussy, intimate hotel with individually styled guest rooms. Set on 6 acres of food and wild floral gardens offering both views of Connemara’s land and seascapes.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Outstanding in every way. The Ardagh is in a beuatiful location, but waht makes it inrecibly special is Stefan and Serg and all the staff including a most wonderful chef. Much of the veg is grown on site and is so fresh and healthy. The breakfast is perfect and a great start to the day, The rooms are impeccably clean and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful stay,

Spent 2 nights at this small family run hotel. The MOST relaxing hotel with superb views, wonderful staff who all went over and above. The restaurant is outstanding especially for seafood and the fact that they grow their own veg and herbs brings stunning flavours. I look forward to a return visit to this little gem just 2 miles outside Clifden.

Small family-run boutique hotel with exceptional restaurant. Typical Irish hospitality -- warm, friendly, inviting. Beautiful location; slightly outside of Clifton but only a few minute drive to town. Would definitely stay there again.

Everything was superb, the room, the grounds and the food was top notch!! Highly recommend. As farmers, the food to table ingredients from their own garden was appreciated. Sustainable and locally sourced food is something we strive to support. Well done all the way around! Cheers from Wisconsin!

The Ardagh Hotel is one of our favourite places to stay in Ireland. This is our 5th visit there and it just gets better every time. The food and service is amazing and the view of the Ardagh Bay, especially with an evening sunset, is spectacular! Stephane, Monique and everyone who works there make you feel so welcome, especially Bruce the dog 🐾

We spent a weekend here and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. This family run hotel is a very warm and welcoming one, beautifully decorated, all the amenities you would need but with the added (and rare touch) of feeling relaxed and personal. The hotel is dog friendly, we had our dog with us and it all went brilliantly. Their fish restaurant is sublime, we had a fabulous meal, and great breakfasts too. And that bay view from the hotel...wow. incredible sunsets over a cocktail on the terrace. While I can't recommend this place enough, I'm also somewhat hesitant to do so as it's the kind of place you want to keep to yourself, a little secret gem. Can't wait to get back. Thanks Stéphane and family, we took home some wonderful memories.

Lovely hotel in a great spot overlooking the sea. Friendly owners and dog. We enjoyed a delicious dinner and great breakfast next day. Home grown fruit and veg. Our room which overlooked the sea was very comfortable. The bathroom looked freshly renovated and it was very tastefully done. We enjoyed our one night stay and came back for lunch the next day.

Absolutely superb from the moment we arrived until we left. This was our second stay, having had a wonderful time previously, it is a place that we were very excited to return to. The hotel is beautifully located with very comfortable rooms overlooking Clifden Bay and its magnificent sunsets. Every member of the team are so welcoming and friendly but very professional. The service was fantastic. Dining in the Ardagh is an absolute treat. There is an extensive menu of wonderful local seafood, meats and homegrown vegetables. This is high end dining at its best. Perfectly cooked and presented. The only difference between Ardagh and other fine dining establishments is that the portions are huge! We ate there for 4 nights and our only regret was not tasting everything on the menu. A well chosen and reasonably priced wine list accompanies the amazing food. Cannot wait to return next year. A true treat worth waiting for. Thank you all in the Ardagh
