My wife and I stayed here as part of a bicycle tour in West of Ireland. Paddy and Julia welcomed us as we arrived on our bikes and gave us great recommendations on where to eat in Clifden. The Quay House is right on the harbor and a short 5 minute walk to town. The room was large and full...

Room was like a self contained apartment with great views in beautiful surroundings, the hotel was like a home away from home, great friendly owners and pleasant staff, the breakfast was fit for a king with great variety.

Impressed by the warm welcome & the delicious welcoming tea & cakes. Paddy & Julia are so so nice! My friend & I absolutely loved the spacious, cozy & well decorated room overlooking the harbour! Will definitely stay in The Quay House again if i visit Clifden the next time! Once again thanks Paddy & Julia!

This is the second time I've stayed in Julie and Paddy's lovely home converted to a B&B. The rooms are all different but all have character and decorated with original antiques and quirky oddities. Breakfast is one of the best I've had in a B&B which included the usual full Irish and a buffet as well as oysters, salmon and...

A number of years ago my then fiance and I stayed at the Quay House - we vowed to return having thoroughly enjoyed the hospitality of Paddy and Julia, the eclectic and sumptuous style of the property and the peace and tranquility of watching the ebb and flow of the tide below. Several years have passed but we finally got...

We stayed with Paddy and Julia for two nights as part of our "take Dad around Ireland" tour. It is said that the hosts make or break a bed and breakfast...Paddy and Julia make the Quay House a truly lovely place to stay. The House is located a tad out of town, down a side road along the river. It...

First of all, Clifden itself is just a wonderful seaside destination. The Quay house is located right on the bay and the center of town is literally a five minute stroll. My friend and I were lucky enough to stay in "The Sky Room." A beautiful room with a massively huge and comfy bed and wonderfully pretty decor. All in...

If you like a glitzy 5 star modern hotel The Quay House is not for you. However, if you like a homely atmosphere and where the warmest of welcomes from your delightful hosts Paddy and Julia Foyle, awaits you and you like bedrooms which carry an imprint of the character of the hosts, that are at the same time extremely...

I simply loved this place!!! I traveled with a small bicycle touring group, and as a former travel agent and group tour consultant (Globus) I haved stayed in lots and lots of places (very few with this much character). I felt like I was at home...the place is somewhere between a museum, a home, and a hotel. Paddy and Julia...

Our hosts, Paddy and Julia, are warmly welcoming and informative and they serve a great breakfast that even offers oysters for those who can face them at 8am. There is, however, more than enough in the way of choice for those who prefer more conventional food at the break of day and it was all very good and among the...
