Very comfortable accommodation at the Buttermilk Lodge. It was a 5 minute walk to town. The room was very clean and comfortable and the breakfast was excellent. We would stay here again and recommend it to others.

I have stayed at this great guesthouse 6 times since 2007, and it feels like our home in Clifden. Although it is set up like a very small hotel, with a check-in desk and all, it's much more intimate than that. Pat and Catriona O'Toole do a fine job of making you feel at home. Pat will bring you tea...

Exceeded my expectations! Staff were very friendly and helpful. About a five minute walk from the town using the shortcut-map included in room! Room was extremely clean and had lovely touches...sewing kit, chocolate on pillow, walking maps, all toiletries you'd need even bath salts! Shower pressure wasn't great. Breakfast was delicious and very well presented. Great selection even gluten free...

Really good place to stay when doing the tour. It was possible to make a booking a short time before we came. The rooms were well done, bed comfortable and good water. The breakfast was full and plenty. Would stay again.

We stayed here with a group of friends recently. The location is ideal as its very near the town centre. Breakfast was perfect and plenty of variety. I missed just a few things : Our host wasnt the friendliest of persons. Although she was correct and polite, she missed the hospitality that we would have expected from her. Secondly, the...

Just back home after travelling about Ireland including 2 nights in Buttermilk Lodge. Only booked it late on and was really looking for somewhere cheap, a single room, but as I was having a bit of difficulty, I decided to pay a bit more than planned and booked a double room in Buttermilk Lodge, no singles available. It was well...

The room was ok but the shower didnt work properly. The owner was not friendly but happy to take our money. The Irish breakfast was dripping with oil.There is much better value elsewhere in Clifden for half the price!

I welcome the opportunity to reply to this “review”. On Sat July 6, 2 men arrived to check in to 2 rooms for single occupancy. We had a reservation for one man but none for the second, he had paperwork for a reservation with him but this was for a room for single occupancy on Saturday June 29 and Sunday...

Nice guesthouse. Clean, quiet. Beds are a bit hard for my taste but warm and with nice bedding. Breakfast had several choices to choose from and the dinner recommendations were excellent. Excellent area and lots to do.
