“A special treat”
Reviewed 5 July 2013

Stayed in Clare Island Lighthouse for 1 night recently. A very special place. Just switch off and enjoy. Stunning views. The rooms are fantastic. Food excellent, all locally sourced products. Wonderful welcome from Roie, Cora and Rory. Amazing views. One feels you at the edge of the world. No television or radio. Just peace. We will be back.

Reviewed 28 June 2013 via mobile

We stayed in Clare Island Lighthouse in June this year just after it opened. It is quite simply stunning. Set on the edge of a cliff on a hill a couple of kms from the town and port, it overlooks much of the island, Achill island and Croagh Patrick. It feels like a retreat at the edge of the world. We benefited from glorious weather during our visit but it would be spectacular in any weather. The lantern tower offers 360° views of the surroundings.


There are 6 rooms, each of which has its own identity. We stayed in Achill View which is one of the 2 rooms in the main house. The views literally took my breath away. The other 4 rooms are in outbuildings annexed to the property. Designed in a luxurious but simple fashion, they bow to their surroundings. One of the rooms is in a tower (not the lantern tower).

A 6 course dinner and breakfast are included which were both delicious and made mostly from local produce. Cora and Rory are the lovely couple that are the lighthouse keepers. They are full of enthusiasm for Clare Island and brilliant hosts.

We didnt want to leave and you won't want to either.
