We were truly sorry that we only spent one night at Hillside Lodge, next time we will definitely be staying longer it was that good. Ruth is a great host who makes you feel very welcome in the cosy surroundings. We had a front facing room which offered fantastic views especially early in the morning. The room and bathroom were...

Hillside Lodge is the perfect place for a relaxing getaway. With fun music-themed comfortable rooms and a cosy lounge to relax in, Ruth makes everyone feel at home. There are plenty of local area tips for food & music as well as outdoor activities. Breakfast was delicious and cooked to order with fresh, top ingredients. Definitely worth a visit!

Hillside Lodge is a great place to stay while visiting Clifden. It is situated out of the city centre on Sky Road in a quiet area. In the morning you wake up to bleeking sheeps , you can take the owner´s dog for a walk down to the sea or take a stroll to Clifden Castle. The house itself is...

A perfect place to stay from which to explore this beautiful area of Ireland. Fantastic communication from my first inquiry, a genuinely warm welcome, large beautifully decorated rooms (our sons stayed in a very large twin bedded room) and my husband and I in an equally tasteful room and both rooms spotlessly clean. You are also a stone's throw from...

This is a great place to stay. Location is good, close to Clifden town. Ruth was very welcoming and accommodating. The room we had was comfortable and clean. Breakfast was tasty and dining area is sweet, nice and intimate. Overall a great experience. Well done to the owners on running a successful place!

The quiet location just outside Clifden on the beautiful Sky Road (20 mins on foot), the interior design and of course the adorable hosts, Ruth, Stuart, the family, the staff and not forgetting the dogs - all this makes the annual stay indispensable. The Room (Nr 3) is spacious and cozy. Even after so many other B&B's, I think the...
