Mallmore House or Ardmore House Clifden?

Please can anyone give their views on which of these B & Bs to choose for mid October please?

We love somewhere with stunning views right on the doorstep, and not too far to drive for good evening meal - any suggestions on that also welcomed please. May be a local pub with music?

Hi Annie --

My wife, daughter, and I just returned from oour second visit to Connemara, and both times stayed at Mallmore House in Clifden, easily the best B&B we've ever stayed at in the British Isles. Have heard of but not seen Ardmore House.

The house itself is gorgeous, set in about 40 acres of old forest, with lovely but not-to firlly appointments. Most of the 6 or 7 rooms are surprisingly large, with views of the garden and Clifden Bay at sunset; comfortable large sitting room for everyone's use; interesting historical objects. Located a 3-minute drive or 15-minute walf from Clifden town center.

Hosts Kathleen and Alan Hardman have owned the historic Georgian manor for 28 years and it's been a B&B for most of that time. Gracious, friendly, down-to-earth people, well-travelled themselves. And the best breakfasts.

Mallmore House is an exquiste place! Although classified as a B&B, it is really an elegant mansion set above the cove in Clifden. We stayed there twice, once in 1993, and again on aonther trip to Ireland. We have traveled many times, over many miles, in Irelend, and would rank Mallmore House as among the top 3 "B&B" in the whole country. We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
