I have spent few nights in Bay Lodge, and everything was very nice. Frèdèrique the host was friendly and always ready to give us advices to sightseeing. Place very well cared and faboulous breakfast, a place of interest where is possible to rest. Lower Sky road is a wonderful place to enjoy wild Ireland.

My husband and I stayed in Clifden for a night in June and it was one of the HIGHLIGHTS of our trip to Ireland. We couldn't believe the views from our room were real.

It wasn't easy to find, but once we got here, it was really worthwile. A friendly welcome from the owner made us feel home. We made a beautifull walk through meadow and next to the water to the center of Clifden. We had a very nice dinner in a fish restaurant suggested by the owner. Breakfast is served in the...

Frédérique is a wonderful host, and her BnB leaves you wanting for nothing. Plenty of parking, a very well kept home and the beds are also very comfortably firm.

Wow, I do not have enough wonderful things to say about this place. Fréderique was so kind and welcoming. Her home is gorgeous, the room was perfect, and what a beautiful view of the bay on the Sky Road. The room was so cozy, and after riding around in the dark for a bit, we were thrilled to have found...

What a lovely Bed and Breakfast! The host and hostess were kind and welcoming. Our room was absolutely beautiful with a nice sized bedroom en suite, and a view of the bay from our window. They even have a cat (which I appreciated because I was missing my own!) The breakfast was good. Easy to find. Highly recommended!

Frederique, was a wonderful and kind hostess. She made sure my mom (who has trouble with stairs) had a room on the ground floor and that we were always very comfortable. She has created a warm home with bits of French antiques through out the home. Her Suggestions for dinner and music are quite good. We had the pleasure to...

Limited arrival hours, no entrance to the house before 16.30 although the French host was at home! We had to wait ouitside the house for more than half an hour until the wife of the host arrived. We had a reservation for a seaview room, but we got a room on the front of the house without a view. There...

We spent one night in the B'n'B and had a great time there. The host was friendly and obliging. Our room had probably the best view of the house overlooking the bay. It was amazing. The room itself was reasonable for one or two nights and had everything you'd need. There was even a tray with a kettle and tea....
