Friendly, effecient, well equipped room, really clean, excellent breakfast-everything you are looking for in a B and B. The location is great, an easy walk into Clifton. We only had 2 days so Caitrionas help and expertise in picking out the best way to organise our time was a real bonus. We were impressed with the walking information available. It...

We were made to feel very welcome on arrival- first by the dogs, a Labrador and a border, then by the owner, who made us tea and cake in the lovely guest lounge after we got settled in. The bedroom was a nice size with a double and single bed, plenty of hanging space, an iron and ironing board, even...

The hosts are very friendly and clearly looking to make your stay a great experience. Our room was very clean and of a good size. The breakfast was of high quality with a good selection with the salmon and eggs to be recommended. The location is very good with a short walk to the town centre. There is plenty of...

This B&B was very comfortable with a great Irish breakfast, and very helpful people around. It has parking out in front and is within walking distance to town... We thought it was a very good choice for us. We stayed two days and took off north to the Connemara area and it was very convenient. We would definitely stay there...

Buttermilk Lodge is a beautiful guesthouse 5 minutes walk from the gorgeous little town of Clifden. Pat & Cathriona run the guesthouse and were very inconspicuous. Pat was a classic bloke who was friendly but certainly didn't use three words when two would suffice. Just a very authentic local living on the wild west coast of Ireland. Breakfast was excellent...

We just stayed here at the beginning and the end of a cycling trip. The peat fire was waiting for us both times along with a pot of tea and nice bread. Our beds were very comfortable. We felt welcomed. You could tell that the owners had put a great deal of thought into their guesthouse. Breakfast was delicious. Short,...

Close to town but on the road to the National Park. Excellent breakfast - Cathriona's full Irish is terrific. Sweet smelling peat fire if the day calls for it. Pat raises Connemara ponies. As a team, they couldn't be more accommodating and supportive. We'll be regulars!

I love bnbs with a fire place. Warms and dries you up in a few minutes when it is all rain and dark clouds out there. Perfect for a place like ireland when rain is a traveller's biggest threat! But Buttermilk Lodge does more than that. Catriona was v forthcoming with suggestions on places to eat and see. The breakfast...
