Dun Ri Guesthouse
Ranked #12 of 45 Clifden B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 June 2013

On a very cold and miserable Connemara day when we cancelled plans to go to Inishmore and called in to the Clifden visitor centre for somewhere warm and cosy to stay, how glad we were that they suggested amongst others, Dun Ri Guesthouse. It was indeed, warm, welcoming, well located and with adjacent parking so that we did not have to splash through the rain with cases in hand. Our room was very well appointed and maintained with obvious attention to detail. The family run hosts were helpful and use of their guest computer saved us lugging in electronic devices in the rain. Tea, coffee, a generous biscuit supply, and ample reading material were all supplied, as well as the usual TV, etc. Breakfast was hot and hearty with plenty of staff to look after our needs. We left with fond memories and no complaints. Good value for money too.

A bit pricey for the low season, but the service was ok, the rooms are nice, warm and clean with a "classic Irish family house" like interior, but...the breakfast that is so boasted about at some popular guide books was a disappointment. The quantity of food served is far away from what I know as a "Full Irish Breakfast"... I thought that a "cheese plate" I was served was a starter, but it actually turned out to be the main course! I left the place hungry.

Excellent location for the money. Room and bathroom nice. Breakfast was wonderful. Would recommend. Loved looking at the sheep behind the hotel! We were greeted warmly and given excellent advice for dinner. I would return.

It was absolutely lovely. Nice, homely place. Comfortable rooms. Great breakfast. Everybody was so friendly and helpful. We can highly recommend this cute little guesthouse and will be back!
Connemara is so beautiful. The guesthouse is close to the famous Syk Road. Views you will never forget!

Dun Ri Guesthouse is the perfection location for a visit to Clifden.....Just a two minute walk into the center of town. The rooms are nice, clean and comfortable--as is the sitting room. Good breakfast with the best ever white pudding which the owner said he gets from a special supplier in Galway. Only negative: couldn't connect to wi-fi in my room. This was our third visit to Clifden, but first stay at Dun Ri. Hope it will not be our last.

We stayed at Dun Ri for 2 nights then added another night on as it was so welcoming. Lovely peat fire awaited us in the reception area with chairs next to the hearth. A comfy sitting room with kettle and chocolate biscuits to have with tea/coffee after a days sightseeing. Beautiful Irish breakfast each morning with lots of good coffee. The bedroom had crisp white linen and large beds. Some rooms have a view of the mountains also.

Really lovely accommodation in the heart of Clifden. Stayed here for one night after Christmas. Breakfast was super. Michael the host was kind with his time and recommended a trip down the old bog road, made famous due to the locals not travelling this road at night due to its supernatural past. Great way to come to back to Clifden from Roundstone and a really beautiful yet eerie road. Thanks Michael. Alexis and Peter.
