About the neighbourhood
There are many local attractions in addition to the breathtaking scenery and coastline. Clifden town has a fantastic mix of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatre and small cinema. There are always events on in town to keep you busy, from live traditional music, live bands and theatre shows, to exhibitions, walking tours, pony fairs and local markets. We highly recommend Clifden Arts week in September for something special.
