We recently stayed at the Ardagh Hotel and, as it has been on each of our visits over the past fifteen years, the food was excellent and the service personal and attentive.

Great place to stay. Can’t fault it really. Was looking for a nice relaxing break away from work and this place ticked all the boxes. On top of that a fantastic restaurant and world class staff.

I'm afraid our experience at the Ardagh Hotel was endemic of The Clifden experience where attention to detail and overall friendliness is in short supply. It appear - Post Brexit - the British, moreover the English are persona non grata.

Relaxed Family run Restaurant and Hotel with breath taking sunset in the bay over dinner, fine locally sourced seafood(many local meat options also) and home grown vegetables and salad. Cosy open fire places in the restaurant make even the coolest of days enjoyable and a large open turf fire in the Bar is ideal for having pre dinner and after dinner drinks in front of. The sun terrace overlooking the bay is a must for pre dinner drinks on fine days. Taxi service available please enquire when reserving for dinner.
