“Relaxing”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Perfect for a weekend relaxing and chilling out. Lovely staff and beautiful surroundings just a short taxi drive from the town centre. The owners are very nice and cannot do enough to make your stay pleasant. Rooms are a decent size and beds are comfortable. Great spot for a quiet weekend,

Room Tip: WiFi in the room that I stayed in was non existent. I'm not sure if this was because of our room...

We just spent a weekend in this lovely hotel. Perfect for a relaxing get away. We received a lovely welcome from the family and got some great tips for things to do in the local area. Dinner in the restaurant is not to be missed. Overall a super spot, we will definitely be back.

We spent one night at Ardagh. The place is a little bit outside from Clifden, but it was great staying here. The owners have put lots of energy and love building this place in the past 30 years. The rooms are huge, very comfortable and so quiet. The food is EXCELLENT! We had the lobster with mussels and oysters as starters. Everything was so good and beautifully presented. The service was very professional. We also had nice conversations with the owner. We will come back here!

Beautiful hotel! Views were amazing even if the weather wasn't great. My self and my husband stayed for the weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The staff were excellent with the owners Stephane and Monique being extremely friendly and helpful. Kinda felf like we were staying in a friends house. The atmosphere was amazing, very relaxed and welcoming. Will definitely be heading back! x

What a gem of a hotel! We arrived after a long journey & were met with a really warm and friendly welcome. Our room was fabulous with a stunning view, everything you could need in the room. We had dinner in the hotel that night& it really was excellent. A relaxed pre dinner drink in the bar first then upstairs to the dining room which affords you beautiful scenery while you dine. My other half opted for the very reasonable lobster option & my own meal of cod looked & tasted wonderful. I can't speak highly enough of this establishment. The proprietor, his family & staff are the lovely mix of professional, friendly and welcoming. This really is a hotel you could go to & just not leave it again until you are due to check out. For everything that matters for a break away, this hotel is 5 star. We sincerely hope to be able to return again , just next time we know to book in for longer!! Thanks for a wonderful time folks.

Excellent location far from the maddening crowd and yet close to all facilities. The food was excellent and the service impeccable and personable. Staff's love and passion for the area shone through in their service. Highly recommend it for any type of couple/family or group.

Ardagh Hotel was an unexpected surprise. Fabulous views toward the bay and the personal touch of owners who really understand customer service. The food is impeccable and the atmosphere is like being invited into a couple's home ( I guess that's why the owners live there). Can't wait to return to Ardagh Hotel
P.S Scotch lovers, try the Connemara single malt!
