“3 weeks in a lovely town. My family (7 in total) stayed for 3 weeks in this charming apartment. Gerry lives nearby and was very attentive to our needs and getting us settled in. It is quite spacious and the outdoor deck was an added bonus for enjoying tea. We parked on the street and had very little problem finding a spot. The grocery shop across the street was very convenient and the entire town is just a very pleasant place. All of the treasures of Connemara are easy to get to in short day trips.”- Tony August 2018
“Great apartment. The property is in a great location with easy access to the Town Square and the local restaurants and bars, as well as the beech and the famous “Sky Road”. The local Supermarket is across the road, bank next door, and a short stroll to the playground in the event that children are part of your group. The apartment has all the facilities you require, and is impeccably clean. I will enquire about its availability the minute I secure by holiday dates next summer. An all round fantastic apartment.” – Mick December 2017
“On arrival at Gannon’s there was a fire lighting plus candles lit. This was the start of one of my best weekends in Clifden, where I have stayed manys a time. The apartment was the nicest I have stayed in , each room was decorated to the highest standard. All bedding and towels etc. felt like Hotel quality. The location was ideal as it is right in the square. The owner was very friendly and more than willing to help if needed with any questions etc. I travel to Clifden at least 3 times yearly and from now on this will be the only place I will book. The price was also very competitive.”- Anonymous 2017
