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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We stayed in the Clifden Bay Apartment, absolutely awesome view of the harbour. Good sized bedrooms, balcony and living space. There were 4 adults and 1 child in our group. We ate in the pub downstairs (same owners) Macdaras Bar. The food was amazing, good value and quality.

Excelente local para hospedagem, cidade tranquila e fácil de estacionar próximo (eu estava viajando de carro e isso foi uma vantagem). Fiquei em um apartamento com minha esposa e outros amigos, o apartamento era totalmente equipado com cozinha e sala com aquecedor, além de dois quartos com aquecedores também. A limpeza era boa em todos ambientes e os quartos espaçosos e com camas confortáveis. A sua entrada é feita por um portão de ferro cinza, que fica de frente para uma passagem de pedestres. O dono foi atencioso e explicou todas as informações do hotel dando também algumas informações sobre alimentação ali próximo.

You'll be warmly welcomed, and never stuck with language barrier as they have staff from everywhere in the world :) Everyone is laid back and fun too. The rooms are clean, there is enough space, there are big windows and warm showers. (Details that make a difference ;) ) The hostel is right in the center, 1 minute away from groceries, pubs, and hikes, yet, you won't be bothered by noise at night. Make sure you check out the activities offered by ''Real Adventures''! There is a cool pub downstairs, and they serve delicious and affordable food ! I don't know what else you could want. Enjoy!

Une auberge idéalement située au cœur de la ville, proche de toutes commodités, à 100m du bus, au dessus d'un super restaurant (tenu par le même gérant) et tourné vers la super balade le long de la Sky Road. Les chambres sont parfaites, grandes, propres, agréables. Petite cuisine bien équipée, auberge qui a du charme, salle de bain au top. Tout est là pour passer une nuit idéale entre deux randos ! N'espérez pas discuter toute la nuit avec le gérant, il laisse l'entière autonomie à ses hôtes, à peine entrevue lors de notre arrivée ! Parfaitement recommandé.

Auberge un peu compliquée à trouver dans un 1er temps mais plutôt bien placée au final : en plein centre d'une petite place, à 2 pas ( littéralement ) des commerces, avec des places de parking devant ( ne nécessitant pas de payer selon les horaires d'arrivée et de départ ). L'accueil est plutôt... rapide... Mais le gérant semble gérer plusieurs établissements à la fois et reste très agréable ( chapeau à lui ! ). Les chambres sont sympas, les grands dortoirs semblent bien plus agréables encore ! Les lieux communs sont bien entretenus, la cuisine est grande mais il y a peu de places pour manger ( 2 tables, 8 chaises... ).

Auberge très mal indiquée, sans réception pour l'accueil des voyageurs, ce qui peut rendre un peu irritante l'arrivée... Cependant, chambres rénovées et lits confortables, ce qui importe le plus. Manque tout de même de sanitaires et d'ustensiles pour la cuisine (où sont les tasses??).

Spent one night here with friends on a fishing trip. Very good location in the heart of Clifden,rooms are basic but clean and comfortable and there's a good bar downstairs. Rates are very inexpensive so as hostels go it ticks all the boxes

Lately I did spent a couple of night at this hostel and overall I had very good impressions. The hostel staff was polite and helpful to ease my accommodation. There is security code to enter the hostel bldg and free wireless internet service. At the time of my visit, a painting renovation took place to make the rooms nicer, but this did not actually had an impact on the accommodation services. I recommend this hostel because the person in charge was so helpful and did the best he could to make it a pleasant and quiet stay. The rear ocean view is wonderful but the front side views Clifden city center, a small picturesque harbor village.
