Reviewed 24 November 2013 via mobile

This beautiful old hotel with period features is complemented by the friendly attentive staff.

Though there are no modern frills, we enjoyed our night in a PROPER old fashioned hotel. WiFi is intermittent depending where you are but it works and is free.

Because it was a weekend we had free parking outside the front door but beware other times as its pay and display public parking.

The breakfast, like the hotel, is a proper old fashioned one - big slabs of thick bacon, home made potato hash browns etc. Beautiful. My partner said even the big fresh croissant was one of the best she'd eaten and we holiday in France regularly!

Definitely recommended

I spent three nights in this extremely friendly hotel, one evening I ate in the restaurant, the food was delicious and well presented and the service excellent. I have to commend them on their breakfast which set one up perfectly for the round of golf to be played at the Connemara Golf Club. Being located in the center of Clifden meant that the local bars were within easy walking distance and thus was able to enjoy the late night music on offer over a couple of guinesses.

I wanted to stay in Clifden for a couple of nights this October and found the website for Foyles Hotel. I was really very surprised to see that they were offering a B&B price of €50, which is extremely good value for a hotel in such a central location in the town.
My room was quite basic yet very comfortable. Breakfast was really very good and the staff were more than helpful. The building is charming in an old fashioned way.
So, for a cost of less than a traditional B&B, why not stay in this lovely traditional hotel?
If I ever need to visit this beautiful part of the world again, I'll certainly try to stay in Foyles.

Stayed in Foyles for 2 nights in early October, originally planned to stay for just one night. Found the staff very welcoming and the hotel warm, inviting and very relaxing. The perfect place to unwind and chill out. It's proximity to the many bars and restaurants in Clifden is an added bonus. Breakfasts were excellent. The beautiful scenery of Conemara is ideal for enjoying as a day trip. The restaurant was busy and looked very nice however we had eaten outside of Clifden so will save that experience for our next stay at this lovely hotel.

Stayed four nights on a recent holiday to Ireland. Courteous and helpful staff, spacious rooms and great food . Central location. Complimentary breakfasts seemed endless! Minor quibbles were the firm mattress and slow water pressure. Would definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask for one with strong water pressure. Also with duvet, if required, and softer mattress, if one pr...

We always visit Foyles restaurant whilst in Clifden. The hotel is well situated in the centre of Clifden and easy for parking. Great family feel and much charm. Restaurant has a great ambience and lovely place to return to. The fish on the menu was exceptional
