Stayed over in Clifden for one night and so happy that we got a room in Kingstown House. Regina was so welcoming and friendly and made sure we were happy with our room and gave us recommendations for the evening in Clifden. They worked well - great local advice! The full Irish breakfast was welcomed the next morning. Lovely clean... More

Traveling through town I had an urgent need for a bathroom. The hosts of this B&B were gracious enough to walk me up to a vacant guest room and let me have its use. Such kindness speaks volumes of the character-- doing something for no immediate (and likely no future) gain for a stranger in need. Of course if I... More

We enjoyed our two-night stay at Kingstown House, which offers the perfect base for touring the area. Wish we could have stayed longer. Its location in town offers easy walking distance to pubs, restaurants, and shops. The room was on the small side, but very clean, cozy, and comfortable. Regina makes a delicious hot Irish breakfast on order, plus yummy... More

Thank you taking the time to review and for your very complimentary comments! We're probably biased, but Clifden is a fabulous place to base yourself to experience the wonderment of Connemara. As you point out, everything is within walking distance and yet just a short drive from the picturesque Connemara landscapes, National Park, Wild Atlantic Way, Sky Road and much... More

The Kingstown House was absolutely perfect for my fiancee's and my trip to Clifden! We explored quite a bit around the area and found Regina and Jim were so accommodating with earlier breakfasts for us! A bonus was the great breakfast-the food was fresh, delicious and hearty. The B&B itself is a dream-a total sense of calm and relaxation throughout.... More

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