“Fantastic Accommodation, Best Location in a Marvellous town.”
Harbour View Townhouse lived up to all it’s expectations. The location is fantastic, right in the middle of Clifden across the road from Mitchells Restaurant and beside Supervalu. Clifden itself is a lively town and is an ideal place to view all around Connemara. Kylemore Abbey, Roundstone, Ballyconneely Golf Club and the wild see and cliff walks around there, Leenane, Cleggan and from there the Island of Innisboffin are all extremely accessible from here. The house itself is set on two storeys. One bedroom, bathroom, Kitchen, Living Room and good sized Patio with Barbeque (very handy and we used it a couple of times) are all on the first floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms with ensuites and another good sized balcony area. The rooms are fine sizes, the kitchen and living areas are very comfortable and once you pack away your things, you are right at home. There was milk in the fridge, tea bags, salt, pepper, sugar etc so that you could have a cup of tea without having to go to the shops (next door is the wonderful Supervalu)! I travelled with my husband, parents, sister and niece and we all enjoyed ourselves thoroughly.”- Catherine July 2018
