My and my partner arrived in Westport on spec on a Friday night this November and since it was November we assumed there would be no problem getting a place to stay. But there was! Having tried a couple of B+B's and found them booked out, we called to the Clew Bay expecting the same result. But we were lucky, and I MEAN lucky, because we got a great deal from the hotel and I have absolutely no doubt everything about our stay in the hotel was superior to what we would have experienced in a B+B. Friendly and helpful staff, a lovely spacious room, comfortable beds, and a generous and varied breakfast. One little point to the manager: whoever makes the wholemeal brown bread for the breakfast, tell them to ease off on the sugar cos it was a bit too sweet. Apart from that everything was perfect.

Dear Peadarog,

Thank you for taking the time to write a great review about your recent stay with us here in Westport at the Clew Bay Hotel. We were very pleased to accommodate you on that Friday evening as you walked-in: it was a busy night in the town.

We are pleased you had a comfortable and welcoming room, and that you particularly enjoyed our renowned breakfast service! We will pass on your comment about the sugar content of the homemade wholemeal bread to our breakfast chef. However we are glad you found it very tasty!

We very much look forward to welcoming you back to the Clew Bay Hotel again in the near future.

With very best wishes,

Neil Thompson

As we were doing a winter break we wanted cosy, warm and welcome. We got all three and more pleased to say. Just great. Room was lovely and clean with a great bathroom and powerful shower. Food was excellent both for breakfast and dinner. Staff were actually real people who seemed to enjoy what they did! Don't even question about booking this hotel. Just do it. You won't be let down.

Room Tip: we were on 1st floor. nothing to see but it was winter and dark so we had pulled drapes from 4.30pm...

I stayed in this hotel on 23/11/13 with a group of friends and would highly recommend it. The room I stayed in was lovely with very comfortable beds and a lovely bathroom. We had booked in for dinner also and it was all delicious. For breakfast we were offered the usual cereal etc. and then a menu for different cooked breakfasts all cooked to order rather than the usual buffet breakfast. All the staff were very helpful and friendly.

From the moment we arrived, we experienced the friendly and warm and welcome. The room was spacious and clean with a lovely view of the river. After climbing Croagh Patrick, we returned to the hotel in our hiking clothes, the lady who worked in house-keeping offered for us to have a bath in another room as our room had shower only. We didn't take her up on the offer but it was such a kind and thoughtful offer which was very appreciated. The hotel really has a - home away from home - feel and we were treated like royalty the whole weekend. Many thanks to all.

Room Tip: River view rooms provide a lovely sound of the water gushing past
