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. Once a Gothic Mansion, the D’Arcy’s lived here until 1850 when the estate was sold to the Eyre Family who lived here at intervals until the castle fell into ruin in the early 20th century.
There are many fine festivals to enjoy throughout the year in Connemara. Most full of music, dance, fun, laughter, activities and games for the young and the young-at-heart.

“Superb spot. We stayed here for a week with my family and our two small dogs and the house was perfect for all our needs – a very comfortable open space, inside & out. The dogs loved the outside space. Brilliant spot, a few minutes walk from the centre of Clifden.”-Alexander September 2018
“The photos do not do this house justice. It feels like you are completely alone with gorgeous scenery and water views from the elevated terrace ( plus optional gnats!!) but in reality Clifden Main Street is a 5 minute drive away. beautifully presented house and very well equipped although you have to be a bit careful with the electrics ( don’t use the washing machine and dryer at the same time ) enormous open plan kitchen special thanks to the nephew for quickly sorting out a few things and a big kiss to the beautiful Conemarra ponies up in the top paddock We travel a lot and have rented many houses and without doubt this place is very special indeed. Will be back next year for longer.”-Sonya August 2017
“Atlantic View Lodge was a great place for our family while visiting Clifden and the surrounding area. The home is well appointed and was a nice set up for my husband and I and our 2 grown sons. We contacted Gosia to get the keys for the home. She was able to let us in the home a few hours early as our flight landed in Shannon at 6:15 am. We had one minor problem with the power in the laundry room. Gosia came over quickly to investigate. We let her know we were going to be out most of the day and when we returned the problem was fixed. The house is a short walk to town and a short drive to many of the attractions in the area we wanted to see. In the evenings sitting outside while enjoying the view we could hear the sheep in the field and that was a real treat. We would definitely rent this home again. Can’t wait to return!!” -Vonda July 2017
“This home is well positioned to explore all Connemara. It’s well equipped to self cater for 6 people, although there are many good bars and restaurants within walking distance. The key holder was responsive when called and did her best to sort out an issue we had . The only thing missing is an information folder . We wanted to consult that for various issues ( bins , electric trip switch etc ) . The beds and seating areas are very comfortable.We hope to visit the house again .”-Anne July 2017
“Very enjoyable stay and house suited our needs perfectly. All mod cons and WiFi. Would be very happy to stay here again.”-Michael April 2017
“Our second stay in this fantastic house. Had a great chill out week. Location is ideal with just a short walk from town and fantastic views all around. Owner Pat could not have been more accommodating and helpful. Can’t wait to return again.”-Caroline April 2017
“House is big & roomy for 3 couples w/ 3 bedrooms & bathrooms. Stayed during Christmas holiday & enjoyed the mild weather. Great location to use as a base for sight seeing. Easy walk to Clifden. The town of Clifden was welcoming and plenty of stores & restaurants, pubs to enjoy. Internet was not working well for our stay, but every place in town that we visited had free WiFi.”-Gill December 2016
“We stayed at Atlantic Lodge for one week in August 2016. It’s a spacious, very comfortable house which is kitted out very well. Comfortable beds, super powerful showers and an excellent kitchen plus a good sitting room. The location just on the edge of Clifden town is super too. We had a great stay, thank you!” –Carmel August 2016
“wonderful location & great house. Everything is provided. The kitchen has great appliances. Pat, the owner had left all the necessary essentials for us which was a nice touch. (milk bread tea coffee etc) This is a very comfortable house and is only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Clifden. All in all we had a lovely week there.” -Anne August 2016
“Very spacious well kept property in great area for walking to pubs restaurants and to explore Connemara from. If you love natural scenery and walking make sure you explore the national park which is an easy drive from here.”-Simon August 2016
“We enjoyed a wonderful week at Atlantic View. Pat the owner was extremely helpful in making sure our stay was perfect. We had seven days of glorious sunshine! The house is extremely well equipped and very comfortable. We were a group of six visiting from Sydney and we’re delighted with our choice of accommodation. Would recommend this property highly. Best we have had during our month long stay in such a beautiful country.”-Maureen June 2016
“Great modern house with great social layout , all the comforts of home, great wood fired stove, WiFi, fully fitted out “cooks” kitchen, lovely view- didn’t want to leave! Can’t wait to go back”-Sandra April 2016
“Lovely house. Very well presented. Very comfortable and warm given the storms outside. Excellently stocked with anything you needed in the kitchen. We had a lovely stay.” -Valerie January 2016
“Lovely 3 bedroom 3 bath house in perfect location. The house is 10-15 minute easy stroll to the heart of Clifden’s stores, pubs, and restaurants, while it is also in a quiet peaceful country setting – 14 pastural acres with sheep grazing practically to the front door. This is a perfect base for touring Connemara – centrally located with easy access to main roads. There are three spacious bedrooms and three lovely baths, a large living/sitting room, and a huge eat-in kitchen, all with top quality furnishings. The house is great as a romantic getaway for a couple, but also has plenty of room for two or three couples or a large family. The upper outside deck has fine sunset views – great place for an evening cocktail. One suggestion – make sure Pat fully explains how all the appliances operate – they’re a bit different than what Americans are accustomed to.” -Edward September 2015
“Extremely comfortable and well situated property. Excellent for our large family reunion. Owners Pat couldn’t have been more obliging , even conjuring up a baby’s high chair at short notice.” -Eoghan August 2015
“We rented the house for a week with our family – 3 boys 14/18/20 years old. Location excellent, close to town – walking distance Very comfortable 3 bedrooms/3 bathrooms. Very nice fireplace during the evenings (although was not cold) Loved the small grill you can use to quickly prepare toast or hot apple pie! Atlantic skyway and surroundings are excellent and very nice views.” -Dirk July 2015
