We had a 1 night stay at this property. Clean modern room and bathroom, fast wifi, plenty of parking and a hearty Irish breakfast. Would definitely recommend to stay here if you are stopping over in Clifden.

Stayed for a night during the Connemara Pony Festival. It was absolutely perfect! The owners were lovely so helpful and obliging. We had an early start the following morning for the show and they made sure we had our breakfast before we left. Breakfast was yummy, fresh and cooked perfectly. Our room was spacious and had a lovely comfortable bed....

Warm welcome, lovely rooms, absolutely immaculate, great breakfast with lots of choice. Would certainly return and glad not to have booked a hotel room which wouldn't have been half as good but would have cost twice as much!

So very clean and friendly. Can't believe that it is only a three star. Worth every cent. Breakfast was as good as any hotel. 5/10 minute walk into town and nice up hill stroll back. Would suggest that they could charge more for what they provide.

My bf was running the marathon and I couldn't go because runners had to travel by bus I couldn't take his car so essentially I a little stuck, how ever the owners didn't mind me staying longer in the room even though checkout was at 11,...

We stayed for 1 night during our recent Irish adventure and were very pleased with the time spent here. The host & family were very welcoming and made us feel at home quickly. The rooms are fairly spacious, nicely decorated and very comfortable. We enjoyed having a little sitting area in the room. Being on the edge of the village...

We stayed at Racecourse Lodge for 2 nights during our two weeks trip to Ireland. The room was very spacious and clean, bed was large and comfortable, and breakfast was delicious. We enjoyed tea and cookies. The host was very nice and let our 14-month old baby use their private bath for both nights. The place has a large parking...
