We stayed at Sunnybank House at the end of May. There were 20 of us, celebrating a friend's 40th birthday.
Shane, the owner, opened the pool for us- it is usually only open from June. We also used the sauna and the tennis court. The rooms were nicely furnished and we had a great time. Shane's Springer Spaniel is very friendly and made a fuss of us all.
On the down side, the kitchen could have been better eqiupped eg, more utensils and a better cooker. There should have been a music system in the main sitting room, and we would have liked a bigger T.V. There were chess sets, but they did not have all their pieces. Little things like this make a big difference when there are 20 or so of you, and you've paid several thousand Euros for the property.
We loved Clifden and the surrounding area. Having a decent week's weather helped. Highlights included lots of short walks (the tourist office has a guide), a game of Golf at Connemara's Championship course, a trip to Inishboffin, the charm and genuineness of the Irish people and a meal at Fogerty's. Great standard, well priced, lovely staff.
This property is wrongly listed. It is not a guest house any more, and would be better described as "Other Accommodation". Tripadvisor, please take note!
