We stayed here two nights and really liked it. Room was comfortable and as it was to the back, very quite. Easy to park on the street and only if it was there from 11 am to 6 pm. For us, it meant paying one Euro to cover the final hour. Clifden is very compact so restaurants and pubs are...

This is our second stay (previously in 2014) with Jim and Regina at Kingstown House. Both times, we were travelling mainly to experience the Clifden Traditional Music Festival. That in itself is worth the trip to this area, but there are so many historic and scenic sights to visit that our days were full; Clifden castle, the Sky Road, the...

The lady of the house was very friendly and polite. She and her husband gave us good info for dinner and trips. The room was nice and clean. We stayed 2 nights and she refreshed the room after the first. Breakfast was very good, you can choose what you eat and there was plenty. Our kids were also very enthousiast....

I can't say enough about how excellent the hosts were during our stay. They made sure to give us ideas on places to visit and things to do while we were in the area. They were very warm and accommodating from the beginning of the stay until the end. The room was very comfortable and functional. I recommend!

We stayed here the night. It was a perfect location to go into town - it was in the middle of town, so we just walked out and them were there! Parking was right in front, on the street, so if it's a busier time of year, not sure where you would park. Owner was very gracious and hospitable, gave...

The room wasn't great, bathroom was very cold and the sink was located in the bedroom. The owner was unfriendly almost to the point of being rude. Breakfast was average. Good location in the middle of town.

This is the kind of Irish B&B that really deserves a category of its own. It is simple, unpretentious, welcoming, spotless, perfectly situated but above all it is run by two very nice people. That's why it deserves its special category. My room was perfect and I really had forgotten how nice real blankets can be on a bed rather...

“The stairs to the top floor are rather steep helping to counteract the hearty Irish breakfasts. Quieter rooms are at the back.”
