We had a great blue sky day on the Lower Sky Road in late June. The hosts were very friendly and our room was one that had a view of the water. The room was very comfortable and clean. Yes, Lady the dog is charming and we enjoyed the walk with Lady down to the cliffs so much that we...

We stayed 3 nights at Rockmount House in May 2012. The house is very nice, our room was very large and comfortable. Warm welcome from the hosts! From the garden you may walk right to the shores. The Sky Road totaly worth it; as does Clifden and the Connemara!

Comfortable family room for 4 (2 adults, 2 kids). We didn't have enough time to visit the Cliffs of Moher but these cliffs were breathtaking and the view was beautiful nonetheless. Plus, we had our own special escort, Lady, the collie ! After our whirlwind vacation across Ireland, it was nice to relax in such a beautiful place and comfortable...

Close to Clifden for dinner and yet totally out where the sky meets the sea! Also a good base for taking trips in The Connemara National Park, we stayed for 3...

We stayed here in June 2008 and this review is long past due. This B and B is a real find with the cliffs in the "backyard" and Lady the dog to keep you company. It is located on the lower part of the Sky Road and is such a wonderful find. We only stayed here one night, but if...

Stayed two nights in this excellent B&B. Weather not great but enjoyed the clifftop walk where you are escorted by Lady the rough collie, who I feel sure comes to keep you safe!!

We had a very enjoyable stay at Rockmount House on August 31st, 2011. We wish we had scheduled more time to stay and enjoy the peaceful area and beautiful scenery. Our accommodations were comfortable and clean. The breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We enjoyed listening to music and watching the birds outside as we enjoyed our traditional Irish breakfast.

“Perhaps a room at the back is nicer because of the view. But don't let that stop your booking should it not be available”
