Waterfront Galway townhouse filled with flamboyant charm
Waterfront Galway townhouse filled with flamboyant charm.
- A big-hearted, off-the-wall B&B
- Quirky interiors reflecting the owners' worldwide travels
- Arguably Galway's best breakfasts.

On the water's edge at Clifden in rugged Connemara.
There's a leafy conservatory – perfect for breakfasts – and a cosy lounge with a turf fore for after-dinner drinks.

LocationBeach Road, Clifden, County Galway, Ireland
Most have four poster beds, open fires and wi-fi. All are a touch quirky. If you’re lucky, you’ll have a rolltop bath to soak and eat strawberries in.
Opt for a themed room if possible – we loved the huge Safari themed room, with its tiger skin rug and private balcony.
Eat & Drink
Only breakfast is served – and it’s tremendous. Eat up in the airy and open conservatory whose sunny aspect snaps you awake. Expect treats such as kedgeree, eggs Benedict, smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, smoked haddock scones, homemade soda bread and poached fruit… feeling peckish? Or you could just settle for the full Irish – one of the best in Ireland.
Breakfast is served until 10am
See & Do
Take the scenic seven-mile Sky road to see Clifden and its lovely coastal setting from above, taking in the ruined castle as you go. Make a trip to Kylemore Abbey, set into green hills and the perfect place for a picnic. Explore the Connemara national park and be sure to call into Roundstone village – something of an artists’ colony – with its harbour and small streets. Hop on a boat and step back in time with a trip to the Aran Islands.
