This vibrant town has an array of shops selling top-quality gifts, trinket souvenirs, and handmade knits to name a few! You will also find boutiques, antique shops, and art galleries.

Take the kids to the town playground where they can have fun on the swings or have a kick about in the pitch beside it! 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. The most well-known and oldest of all is the Clifden Community Arts Festival which offers a superb range of poetry readings, lectures, recitals, traditional music, concerts, and comedy.
At the summit of the Sky Road peninsula, there is Eyrephort beach at the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

“We had a great stay at Sycamore Cottage. We had stayed in different places on three previous trips but this was the best. There were just the two of us and Bruce the dog. The cottage looked great on the website and we were not disappointed. The cottage was spotless and had everything you might need. The bed was comfy and the heat from the Stanley stove in the kitchen was incredible and warmed the whole place. The location was perfect just a five-minute drive to Clifden and two mins of this is down a small laneway. The dog loved meeting the donkeys and horses further down the lane. We got the Netflix going and the wifi was good. We would certainly recommend Sycamore Cottage and would definitely stay there again next time we visit Clifden.” – Kevin March 2023
