“Awesome cliff views, relaxing, wonderful escort - Lady”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2012

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 home. The grounds have their own lovely path to the cliffs with wildflowers. The neighboring pastures with grazing sheep was picturesque. Traditional breakfast, delicious ! We enjoyed our stay. Highly recommend, family friendly ! Great Dog !!!

Room Tip: Have kids, great place - Lady, the collie and trampoline in backyard

My sister and I got a warm welcome, hot tea and ginger cookies was just what we needed.

The place and the view from the room was just perfect!! 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 days.

We stayed 3 nights there and were lucky with beautiful weather. Enjoyed very much : good situation, "appalling" lower and higher sky road to get there : never to be missed. Paddy and Anne are very welcoming. A pleasure to be with them. Clean, comfortable, much light (cuz large windows). A walk on the trail cliffs is possible from their house : we did it. Really worth it. Excellent breakfast with 4 different choices : all good. This is an address we'll remember and may be go back.

Room Tip: don't remember the number but it was at the backside of the house, looking at the bay. Super.

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 we ever have a chance we will return. Take a bottle of wine and some cheese and spend the afternoon on the cliffs...it is an expereince you will never forget. The rooms, baths and beds are comofrtable and the breakfast is your typical Irish spread.

Room Tip: Rooms in back of the house have a seaview.
