Rooms facing the square are best with fab view of town. Breakfast very good. with good athmosphere. Clifden has good vibe to it with excellent Pubs & Award winning Resturants. A spin to Kylemore, Ballyconnelly and Roundstone are a must.

We stayed at a B&B in Clifden but went for dinner at Alcock & Brown Hotel every evening of our stay. The food was always outstanding, very special and delicious and have more than fair prices for this. We had a great time with the very friendly personnel and they gave us great tipps on places to see.

This place is a hidden gem. Not from the area just called in for a quick bite the staff were very welcoming but the food was to die for. Definately my new port of call when I'm in the area. Keep up the good work.

Firstly, Hats off to the chef because the food in the restaurant was superb. All three courses delicious. Secondly,from the minute my friends and I stepped into the hotel, the atmosphere was brilliant. The staff were very welcoming and easy to talk to. Our waitress for the evening had a bubbly personality and you couldn't help but smile around her....
