“An Absolutely Accommodating Place!”
Reviewed 10 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

My extended family of 28 members recently returned from our dream trip to Ireland. We spent a week in Clifden renting both Sunnybank House and Lodge. It was so good that we found a place where we could all stay together and the location of Sunnybank is ideal. It is just a few minutes walk right into town and everyday we were able to make excursions out in the surrounding areas and easily return to Sunnybank so it was a great central location to stay in to tour the area. We were met by Shane who turned out to be the most accommodating host you can imagine answering all our questions and helping us with anything that came up. He arranged for my 81 year old Father and my brothers to play in Guy's Pub several evenings and this was an experience of a lifetime for my Father. We will forever be thankful to Shane for making that happen. The accommodations were wonderful, fully equipped kitchens, beautiful decor, inviting outside areas, and comfortable bedrooms. If you are traveling with a group this is a perfect location even if you have little ones. They provided us with highchairs and baby cots as we had 3 babies in our group. We used the kitchens quite a bit as we prepared breakfast every morning and cooked out a couple of nights using the outdoor grill. We also availed ourselves of having a local person, Gillian, prepare us a meal one evening that was quite delicious. We had been out touring all day and it was wonderful to arrive back and smell the meal she had prepared for us. All in all, I have to say that Sunnybank is one of the most accommodating places that I have stayed of all my trips to Europe. My family and I very much enjoyed our stay there and I would highly recommend Sunnybank House and Lodge! Thank you Shane for everything!

“Complete Connemara luxury!”
Reviewed 9 May 2012 for a stay in May 2012

We held our wedding in Sunnybank House, we stayed for the May bank holiday weekend with our family and we couldn't recommend it highly enough. It was the perfect venue for our special day and our family and friends were blown away by it's luxury and uniqueness. Shane the owner was the perfect host and it's location right in the heart of Clifden was excellent. We were sad to leave and definitely hope to return one day! A truly memorable stay

“This place has the WOW factor!”
Reviewed 24 September 2011 for a stay in September 2011

We stayed here for a week with 16 friends and family for a 50th birthday. When we first walked in we were blown away by the beauty and luxury of the house and grounds. There was plenty of space for everyone and we never felt crowded. The place is so comfortable and it was very handy to have laundry facilities. We hired the recommended caterer, Gillian, for a birthday dinner. The food was to die for and she is an absolute doll! The location is superb in that you feel very secluded while at the house yet it only takes a couple of minutes to walk to town. Bottom line - it was better than we could ever have imagined!

“Fantastic place for a large group; home away from home!”
Reviewed 2 August 2011 for a stay in July 2011

We just returned from a wonderful family vacation at Sunnybank. All 21 of us loved it! There was plenty of room for us, allowing the perfect blend of togetherness and private time. The house is very well equipped, and has so much character. It was easy to pretend that we were all living in a fancy country estate! Each of the bedrooms, with its own bathroom and shower, were unique. All were comfortable. The common areas were spacious and cozy, especially in front of the peat fire! The location couldn't be better, just a short walk from the charming town of Clifden, with its many shops, restaurants, and pubs.
