Great location in the heart of Clifden. You can walk to any shops, pubs or restaurants from this B&B. Jim & Regina are super and the breakfast was really good. There is a small sitting room at the front of the B&B that looks out on the street and is a cozy place to relax. This was our second stay and we really like the convenience of the central location that allows you to park the car and roam around the town. We'd stay here again if in Clifden.

In the heart of Clifden. Clean rooms, and although it is an older place, the entire family loved it. Perfect location for shopping & restaurants. Wonderful breakfast and hospitality. Only bummer was the poor internet connection.

Room Tip: We had the family room and loved it.

This B&B is situated in the centre of Clifden town with ample parking available on the street outside. The owners are very friendly and interested in our feedback when we were leaving. The cooked breakfast was delicious, generous portions and cooked to perfection. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would stay there again.

The B&B itself is pleasant (definitely an older property). Regina and Jim, the owners were very friendly and very helpful on what to do in the area. You can park infront of the B&B on the street. It is well situated just off of the main street.

unless you're averse to genuine hospitality. Regina and Jim were spectacular. I just returned yesterday from a weekend-long family wedding. Since everyone in the family was home for the wedding, for the first time in decades, I had to pay for accommodations in Connemara. (I know, I can hear the teeny violins now!) At any rate, I looked on this website and asked my cousins for recommendations. Both directed me to look at Kingstown House. It is centrally located in the very heart of Clifden; you are literally right around the corner from everything in town. An older building, it is not the Ritz, but it is charming. The rooms (by American standards) are small but we spent very little time in them anyways. There's a very cozy front room downstairs with a fire if you're looking to chillax anyways. The bed was super and we slept like rocks. In the morning (rather late in the morning in fact) Regina was ready for us with a slew of options for breakfast. So accommodating was she that when my cousin informed her the night before that she had wheat allergies, she popped into the shop and purchased some gluten free bread for her breakfast. She then insisted that my cousin take the remainder of the loaf home with her to Dublin so it would not go to waste. Just like staying with family. It will be my first recommendation to friends visiting Ireland for sure.

A lucky find for us! This b&b was just what we were looking for... and more. Regina and Jim were very friendly, helpful, and generous hosts.

This was our second time to stay at Kingstown House and again we had an extremely positive experience. Excellent value for money with lovely comfortable beds, nice rooms, and the breakfast couldn’t have been better – lots of options, locally sourced produce and home baking with plenty of good coffee. The owners, Jim and Regina, are the kindest, friendliest people you will ever encounter. They were a great source of local information and went above and beyond the call of duty to cater for our special requests. The guesthouse is in a great location too just at one end of the main street and Clifden is an ideal base from which to explore the many delights of Connemara. We are looking forward to our next trip already!
