On my last visit to Ireland I stayed at this luxury accommodation! My stay was made so much better because the staff were ever so pleasant and went out of their way to ensure I enjoyed every second of my stay.

The road to Dolphin Beach is narrow and tricky but worth the drive to arrive at such a gorgeous location. The rooms are charming with hand carved headboards and lovely water views. The property is beautifully situated and I could have stayed on site all day just to relax and enjoy the view. Clodagh and Dara are charming hosts who...

Not only is this one of my favorite parts of Ireland, this may now be my favorite places to stay. The Dolphin Beach House is off the beaten path was absolutely perfect. The views were gorgeous, comfy bed, nice communal area, and a delicious breakfast. We were there with only 5 people total at the bed and breakfast (the owner...

We spent 3 lovely nights there this week. The food, staff, facility were excellent. Clifden has ample restaurants to choose from & bars to quench your thirst and listen to music for 3 - 5 nights. This location is a distance from Clifden and it is well worth paying for a taxi to take you to and from. Besides, Michael...

On our driving trip though Ireland, we stayed at Dolphin Beach for two nights, planned as a bit of a break after long days of driving and attempting to see all the sights that we could. It was just perfect! The ocean view from our room and from the dining room was spectacular. We loved the town of Clifden and...

Wow... Such a lovely location, with attentive and friendly Clodagh and her team. We had a small room (the Green Room) on the ground floor ..and were delighted with it. Underfloor heating keeps it cosy. The clever layout means you're hardly aware of other guests - each room's panoramic window is set to not overlook any other. Definitely a restful...

We stayed in the Dolphin Beach House just below the B&B in June and it was absolutely perfect! The location right on the water is magnificent and the house itself - which is huge- is wonderful. Every room in the house has a water view and the layout is amazing with one super king bedroom at one end with the...

This bed and breakfast is wonderful. The owner is delightful and very helpful and accommodating. The rooms were large, comfortable, beautifully decorated, and sparkling clean. I went with several family members and we occupied four rooms. All of them were gorgeous. They were all en suite, with private bathrooms with tubs and showers. You can walk down a short path...

From the moment you see the place to departure it is wonderful. Wonderful rooms lounge and dining room. On entering the front door the beauty of the furnishings takes your breath away. Clodagh was a wonderful hostess. Only had 2 days but could easily have stayed more.

Clodagh and her team are wonderful, relaxed friendly hosts. We took a ground floor bedroom with sea view from our bed (peacock room). Delicious breakfasts. Comfirtable lounge with great views when the rain sets in. Sky Road is good for cycling - bike hire can be arranged locally very easily.
