Dan O'Hara's Homestead Farm
Reviewed 13 July 2014

I see that 2 people were dissatisfied and left rather poor reviews. If I may, I would like to say that my wife and I have stayed here several times and various dates. We have always found it to be a great place to stay. Its location is fantastic with lots of things to do and see. In fact we are booked in for another stay this coming October and are joyfully looking forward to our visit and our stay in the "Honeymoon Sweet" (Room 4).

When we got married we went on a tour of Ireland and this was one of several places on our itinerary. When we visited there for the first time we were given Room 4 which we referred to (jokingly) as the "Honeymoon Sweet". Each time we visit we always stay in the same room.

Room 4 is just great. Outside the window you are looking onto a babbling brook which has a very peaceful sound and laps you to sleep, well, it does the trick for us.

This is a family run B&B and is not a "Motel" as described by one reviewer. The staff even when under pressure look after your every need, it is just great. We like it so much that we drive the 3 hours or so from home to what has become our mainstay base in the Connemara area.

It is hard to please every one all the time and you may have an off-day now and then, but, a stay here is well worth the travel when you get a great Dan O'Hara welcome with a cup of tea and Paula's home baked scones and cakes.

Mmmmmmmmmmm - Looking forward to October :-)

I reserved a group visit here for 49 French tourists. We were warmly welcomed with delicious freshly baked scones, homemade jams and pots of tea. After watching the very interesting video we took the tractor trailer ride up the mountain to watch the turf cutting demostration and admire the most wonderful views of the mountains and lakes of Connemara. We finished with a visit and history of Dan's cottage. Altogether a magnificent experience My group enjoyed every minute, Paula, her family & staff made us feel so at ease and welcomed. We would class this as one of the more memorable visits of our trip and recommend a visit to sample the home cooking and tractor ride to admire the incredible scenery and enjoy such warm hospitality. Keep up this great effort, you are doing a great service to the history and culture of Ireland .

In planning our Ireland vacation we stayed in a variety of accommodations from city hotels, country inns and castles. We had asked our travel agent to include a B&B in our plans as Ireland is so well known for the hospitality of the Irish. Despite its claims this is not a B&B but a nondescript (but clean) hotel on the order of an American Hampton Inn style chain. The most incredulous thing however was the bed - it was just a box spring!! I kid you not. After a few hours I spent the night on the floor as the metal springs were, as you might imagine, impossible to get comfortable on. Our plans were to spend 2 nights in Connemara but we departed early the next morning and increased our stay by an additional night at Dromoland Castle in County Clare which I enthusiastically recommend. When I think back on that night I am still flabbergasted. Add that to the fact that we looked out a small window onto some kind of sewage treatment container and the shampoo/soap was in a gym style dispenser in the shower and I tell everyone to steer far clear of this "farmhouse".

This is a unique B&B, with the Dan O'Hara tour available from Martin ( the owner). It was a great Irish history lesson, brought to life. The rooms were very comfortable as well as the lounge. The grounds were lovely. Paula greeted us as we entered and had great tips on the area. A pot of tea and fresh baked cakes also welcomed us. She also sent us on our way with delicious fruit cake.

Great attractions around Clifden to see as well. One of our favorite B&Bs.

We walked into this place and immediately felt at home. We had travelled a lot before arriving at this place in the country outside Clifden, we needed a place to rest and distress. We found it.
We ended up staying for two nights. Great service, good food, nice room (shower size a bit tight), computer access to catch up on emails, great location (as it was close to Clifden and nearby attractions including bars/restaurants with Irish music). Enjoyed the walks up the mountainside with the great views and fresh air. On top of this there was gift shop and a heritage centre there to visit. Highly recommend.

After driving for hours, we were really glad we chose to stay at Dan O'Hara's Homestead Farm. It had all the comforts and convenience of a hotel, but was small and had the friendly service of a B & B.

The staff were so very helpful and friendly to us during our entire stay. They gave us great recommendations for places to visit and to dine. They even spied us getting ready to share a bottle of wine in the parlor and brought us glassware and some freshly baked cake to share for our evening!

Great place to stay in a lovely part of Ireland!

We have stayed in many B&bs in Ireland and chose them all based on tripadvisor ratings. We wanted to complete our trip in Connemara before heading to shannon and this seemed perfect. 3 miles outside Clifden with the Irish heritage site on property which was lovely and made me appreciative of my Irish roots and their struggles for a better life. I have to say I was disappointed in the overall experience compared to others in Ireland. Our greeting was not warm and although Paula was great on the pre arrival emails we felt we were bothering Nora as I had t nitro dude myself to her and she continued to speaking Gaelic as if we weren't there. Upon arrival to our room there was hair in the bathroom, the remote to the tv did not work and the soap dispenser in the shower was broken. Lucky we did bring shampoo, conditioner & lotion as there was none to be found like the other b&bs. Breakfast was regimented 8am to 9:15 only and was ver rushed and not the quality of the others. The lady in the gift shop was very unwelcoming and seemed to be bothered by our questions & purchases and treated the couple before us the same.

Martin was the bright spot and made sure we viewed the heritage film and saw the site and took some of their homemade bread with us which we enjoyed in the plane as we missed breakfast in Shannon due to an early flight.

Clifden was lovely and many pubs & shops to enjoy. Don't miss Connemara!
