“Comfortable, friendly and good food.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2011

Very comfortable, if slightly old fashioned, excellent sizes rooms and ensuite, comfortable beds. Restaurant served some excellent and adventurous fusion dishes as well as locally produced food. Service was very good, helpful and friendly Well place in the centre of Clifden, however as private parking is not available and street parking is controlled, it could be a problem in the high season.

Room Tip: Requested a back facing room on arrival, which was very quite. Front facing rooms overlooking the st...

Just back from a brilliant w/end in Foyles for my brothers wedding. This hotel is a real gem, the staff could not be more helpful and accommodating. We had two small kids with us who were made feel so welcome. The hotel is charming with its antique furniture and old world atmosphere. The food was fab from b/fast through to dinner, and Mularkeys pub serves the best pint of Guinness in Clifden. Highly recommend Foyles and am looking forward to my return visit.

An older hotel, with a lot of charm, but not as spiffy as some. Quite comfortable, and the location -- right in the middle of the town, with easy walks to all restaurants and attractions -- was terrific. Staff was friendly and welcoming.

My wife and I and another couple stayed at Foyle's Hotel recently. Upon checking out I discovered I had lost my credit card, so my wife used hers. At the next hotel we arrived and got the message that my card had been found in the corridor of Foyle's Hotel. They tracked us to our new location since they knew that we had reserved with them on bookings.com, and used that to find where we were next! Great effort on their part. And, good rooms in a good location in center of town.
