The room was spacious. There's plenty of parking available. The breakfasts were good and there is a fire to welcome you in the lobby. Great place to stay in Clifton. The breakfasts were very good too.

A charming bed and breakfast located slightly off main street that allows for quiet nice and lovely views of sheep grazing in the fields. Michael the owner, while quiet was very accommodating and I cannot say enough about the wonderful breakfast offered each day. The waitress was lovely and overall our stay was wonderful!

Lots of stairs when traveling with elderly person. Otherwise they were not a problem. Beds were comfortable, had a triple room. Breakfast was very generous with lots of choices and very well done. Great service!

This guesthouse was in a great location. The host Michael was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was very good and had a nice selection of foods. They were very accommodating as we were cycling and they had a spot to store our bikes.

Overall it was a stress-free experience with no complaints. Our room was clean, not too small with a nice view of sheep grazing. Breakfast was fine with a very sweet server. WiFi was consistent. Parking was right on site which is always a relief. It's right in town so within one minute you are right there with plenty of shops... More

The Dun Ri Guesthouse is 12+ room facility, unlike the suite in the home type. Within walking distance to the restaurants and pubs. Our room was comfortable with great WiFi and shower with lots of hot water. The bed was comfortable. The breakfast had three choices - Irish full, scrambled egg with smoked salmon and a pancake item. Pretty normal... More

The place actually looks more like a hotel than a bed and breakfast and is set up more like that way inside, as well. The hosts were quick to make us feel at home both upon check in and at breakfast. Our room was located on the second floor and was nice and cool, and it wasn't too noisy to... More

Stayed last weekend. Room was fine, slightly cold and heat could have been on prior to our arrival. At €100 it's way overpriced...maybe on account of the BH weekend.... Place is grand....not worth €100 Wouldn't return. Breakfast is good - we had to wait about 20 minutes for a seat! Very friendly and helpful!

We decided Clifden to be our base for two week holiday exploring Connemara and the Dun Ri Guesthouse as the place to stay in Clifden. We never regretted the choice of town or accommodation. Michael, his family and staff made us welcome from the moment we arrived to when we left (including the delightful dog). Rooms were spotless and swiftly... More
