“Fabulous house with wonderful sea views. Just back from a wonderful trip to Clifden, stayed in Derryinver house which is a beautiful house equipped with everything you could possibly need for a holiday. The beds were very comfortable and there is a marvellous collection of books for a rainy day. The owner of the house was very welcoming, showed us around on arrival and left us to it, they live nearby. The views from the house are amazing sea views from nearly every room-lovely to watch the boats passing up and down the bay. It is just a short walk into Clifden town which is so handy. There are lots of lovely walks from the house and loads of interesting places to explore. Only a 20 minute drive to Cleggan to get boat out to Inisbofin which is well worth visiting. There is a boat club at the end of the road,nice place to go for a lunch or light snack. Derryinver is a house I would definitely go back to.”-Dara Jul 2014
