We enjoyed very much our stay at Hillside Lodge on May 2014. The breakfast was delicious and the room perfect. The house is a jewel. We loved the cosy and smart decoration of the whole, all the caring attentions in the room.

Hillside Lodge was a great choice for a B&B in Clifden. Spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and a very comfortable bed to sleep on. To top it off, breakfast was fantastic as well. You will love it!

Excellent place to stay in Clifden. The service is pro active and everything was perfect, clean, well decorated, very good breakfast. You can walk the sky road easily and go see the sunset. We would go back again.

We love Connemara and we love Hillside Lodge. Our second stay and we intend to return again. Extremely comfortable room and Ruth's breakfasts are superb. Easy access into Clifden and its shops and restaurants, and the Sky Road walk is on the doorstep, do it if you can the views are spectacular. We watched a school of porpoises from a local beach! An exceptional base from which to explore this wonderful area. Thankyou Ruth and Stuart for making us so welcome and thankyou Ella (the dog) for coming on a walk with us. See you again. Roger and Sarah, Norwich.

A really nice B&B in Clifden, on the Sky Road. Perfect location for people who wants to visit Clifden and have a look on the bay. Really warm welcome from Ruth.
And a wonderful salmon for breakfast! I recommend it.
Thanks a lot!

This is pretty simple. If you are researching lodging for Clifden, look no further than The Hillside Lodge. If you have already made a decision and are just surfing or nervous about your choice, make the switch now. We stayed @ Hillside for 3 nights in early May and the Hillside and the Connemara region were the highlight of our trip. Any place where the family Black lab(Ella) loves to go on walks with guests sealed the deal for me. Ruth, Stuart, Molly, Ella, and Sparkles were the best of hosts. Make sure you take Ella for a walk down to D'Arcy castle across the road, which is an undiscovered gem. The Hillside oozes with class, personality, and taste, with an excellent location to top it off. As Chappys stated earlier, there are not enough stars to give them. As veteran travelers and B&B aficionados it is rare that we say we would go back to specific area and lodging but would in a heartbeat to the Hillside. Thanks to the Morgan crew for a great memory.

Ruth and Stuart have a very lovely place. The room was immaculate and well done, there was a lounge with lots of travel information and books on Ireland to peruse which was great to have access to. Breakfast was amazing. I highly recommend this place. I only wish I could have stayed longer and if I wasn't fighting a cold I would have loved to take their friendly pup for a walk.
