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.

Beautiful rooms, fantastic breakfasts and hosts who were both friendly and informative. The trip was made extra special by their suggestions of local beaches and walks. The gardens are beautiful too and I would recommend a walk to Bishops Bench at sunset.

When you arrive at Mallmore Country House, you feel like you’re home -- safe and extremely comfortable. That feeling intensifies as your stay progresses and becomes even richer as you get to know Kathleen and Alan and share experiences with other guests. We had the distinct pleasure of staying at Mallmore Country House last September. Having travelled the world staying in B&Bs, we put Mallmore right at the top for our favorite places to stay. If we could give a 6 rating to Mallmore, we would gladly do it. Not only are the rooms clean and luxuriously furnished, but the common parlor is a great place to relax and unwind with tea and biscuits after touring the beautiful Connemara countryside. We had a gorgeous view of the gardens and bay from our stately room and highly recommend that view. The gardens are lovely and worth quietly exploring. We found the breakfasts to be delicious, even the vegetarian options, with the highest marks for Kathleen’s fresh baked scones. Alan was always a delight in helping us decide on places to eat and tour in Connemara. We walked to Clifden for dinner several nights to enjoy delicious food, often accompanied by traditional Irish music. We can’t wait to return!

We really loved our 5-night stay in Mallmore House and wished we could have stayed longer! The rooms are beautifully decorated and have a sitting area overlooking the pretty gardens and Clifden Bay. It's well worth spending a few euros more for the front rooms towards the gardens instead of the back rooms. Mallmore Country House is situated in a very quiet location so it's perfect for relaxing but it only takes 5 minutes to drive into Clifden. Clifden has lots of great restaurants and pubs and there are many things to see and do around town. The breakfast is totally delicious and in itself worth staying here. But what makes the stay really special is the warm welcome given by Kathleen and Alan. They are wonderful hosts and ensure every guest feels comfortable. Thank you very much for some truly memorable days during our honeymoon! We will make sure to return when we are in Ireland again!

If you enjoy a home with atmosphere and views, this is the place for you. Only 1.5km outside of Clifden, the house has a great historic (ie late 18c) feeling. Views are wonderful. King size beds and great breakfasts.

My husband and I and our adult twin daughters stayed one night at Mallmore Country House during our self drive tour of Ireland. With its old world charm and grand entrance this B and B was very different to the other B and Bs we had stayed in. The rooms were very spacious, each with a sitting area overlooking the gardens and bay. Quite a lovely view. Situated less than 10 minutes drive to town in a very quiet location.It would take about 40 minutes to walk into town for dinner. If you had the time and energy it would be a very scenic walk. We enjoyed a delicious breakfast cheerily served by Alan. Alan was very helpful in his advise for our ongoing travels. Loved the views from the Sky road. We then went onto Connemara National Park where we had a gorgeous walk in the sunshine. From there we visited Killary sheep farm. Alan recommended a great restaurant for lunch at a garden centre. Thank you Alan.

This is a one floor B and B with about 6 rooms so it would be great for friends and family traveling together. The road to Mallmore was only one lane - so that added to the ambience. We were welcomed with a cup of tea ( or coffee) in a great room full of antiques. We had a twin room that wasn’t fancy but had a lovely sitting room overlooking the gardens and the bay. Surprisingly they had extra outlets and good WiFi. Our breakfast was the best of the trip- you could have salmon with your eggs and the breakfast room was charming and our host was full of information. If you are coming to see a Connemara rugby match the club is just down the road.

Driving under the canopy of old trees on the winding drive to the house hints at the magic that awaits at Mallmore House. As soon as the front door is answered and you meet your hosts, you know you’re in for an amazing experience. Old world charm envelopes you upon first sight, but the spacious, beautifully appointed guest rooms ensure a restful, relaxing time away from the manic pace too many travelers create, trying to see it all. The unique art & furniture collections from around the globe get more interesting upon further inspection, so take the time to explore. And I can’t leave out the breakfasts - prepared to perfection, enjoyed in what used to be the chapel in the house. You’ll feel like old friends by the time you (have to) leave, due to the personal interest the host couple take in their guests. Be sure and ask for suggestions about eating, off the beaten path sights to see and listen when they give suggestions about antiquing!! This is truly a joyful place - one of our favorites in all of Ireland!! We’ll be back! NOT TO BE MISSED!!

We had a quiet, spacious room with a wonderful view of the garden and the bay. Our room was spotlessly clean and very quiet but a little quirky with the setup of the sink in the bedroom area. The large common area was a throwback to a different century with an inviting fire burning in the fireplace each night. The garden and the grounds are beautiful. Alan and Kathleen have run Mallmore for many years and their hard work shows. The breakfasts are very adequate but nothing over the top. A perfect home base to explore the area!

Mallmore House is a very pleasant place to stay a few days. Located on 35 acres (14 ha) it obviously is in a very quiet location. Very pleasant lounge to enjoy afternoons and evenings. One can also sit in the large beautiful, well kept garden (park is the better description) with views across the bay. Breakfast is in large room. Alan and Kathleen, the hospitable innkeepers, not only prepare excellent breakfast but also provide recommendations for sightseeing. Rooms are large with separate sitting area with views; small bathroom.

Book an extra night so you have time to appreciate the gardens and the view. Rooms are terrific, breakfast was amazing, hosts are wonderful. I especially liked the tastefully decorated living room. Wish we could have stayed longer.
