A must visit is the ruins of the old D’Arcy mansion, Clifden Castle. Along the Sky Road is a gateway leading to the castle.

Spotlessly clean, great location. The house was spotless, which was very re-assuring during Covid. Great location, very close to the town centre but it still felt very peaceful and quiet. With greenery all around we felt like we were in the country but it was only a 2 minute walk to the main street. Could have done with more pots etc in the kitchen as we ended up cooking in more than we normally would, but otherwise it was perfect. Mairead Oct 2020
Perfect location in every way – Clifden is an ideal base from which to visit Connemara. Four of us spent a week there in Sept 2020 and the house was ideal for holidaying during COVID times. It was roomy and clean and our host (Mary) could not have been more helpful. There was a welcome pack with tea, coffee and milk which is always appreciate. We’ve given the house ***** and will recommend it to friends. Mary Sep 2020

Lovely visit to Clifden. We stayed in # 17 for a family reunion in Clifden. Mary looked after us and was very helpful whenever we needed anything. The house is very close to the town. I would recommend it.- Michael August 2018
Excellent location, at the edge of the town of Clifden. The house is split over 3 floors with a nice open plan day area. It is clean and tidy and has all the basic amenities including a washing machine and dryer which is great for families. The caretaker was most helpful. The house is situated in a superb location for exploring Connemara which is a beautiful part of Ireland – some stunningly beautiful mountain ranges, beaches, inlets and small villages. The house is close (by car) to Kylemore Abbey, Connemara National park, Spiddal/Bearna area, and the islands. Clifden town itself has some lovely restaurants, shops and pubs. Would definitely recommend this property to others: for a family or small group.- Liz July 2018

The Suir Womens Group from Tipperary descended here for the last weekend of the Arts Festival. The location was perfect, the house is brilliant for comfort, cleanliness and convenient for town. Couldn’t fault it, we all had a great time and Mary couldn’t have been more lovely. Thank you, see you next year! September 2017
We choose Clifden as a base to visit all surrounding areas. During our week we climbed Diamond Mountain ,visited Inishboffin,had great food and trad music in Cleggan and cycled the sky road. We dined in Clifden town most evenings which has a huge choice to pick from. A great enjoyable holiday had by all July 2017
Stayed a week in Clifden, Connemara is stunning and Clifden a great base, Mary had provided all the home comforts….but no wifi and only local TV stations…not important to us. House well maintained just off towns Main Street, no open fire but still a warm house July 2017
We had a wonderful stay in this lovely house. It is only a short walk to the town centre where there are great places to eat . Great pubs and shops too. Great base to tour Connemara. June 2017
We rented No 17 as it was close to everything, you could walk to Clifden in 5 mins and had access to lots of wonderful things to do in the area, from cycling, golf, climbing the Diamond, to visiting Inisbofin. We had a great holiday…even had good weather… May 2017
Great location to the town. Property is tucked away in the corner of canons lane making it quiet. Would use again. April 2017
Our host was readily accessible both on arrival and departure and most pleasant. The house was spotless and roomy. I would warn people with small children that the two sets of stairs could be a problem- They were not for us as our 2 year old is adept at stairs. A real plus is the 4 bathrooms- 2 en suite, 3 with showers -but no soap so bring your own. The only negative thing I can think of is that the kitchen could be better stocked. There was only one very small frying pan and not quite enough glasses and knives forks and spoons for 7 people. And oh yes we couldn’t find a mop! The location was perfect and the view of the church lovely. – 2 minute walk to town and amenities. I had failed to read the fine print about deposit and heating charge so just be aware of these. The charge was nominal so not a problem. There is plenty of parking space and the access to roads in any direction is right around the corner. Highly recommend. November 2016
