Hillside House B & B
Ranked #3 of 5 Carna B&B and Inns
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Barbara and Patrick are very kind and welcoming, very willing to advise or share conversation. They take great pride in their home/B&B and it shows. If your looking for a comfortable, tranquil setting with some of the best scenery in Ireland, you won't be disappointed.

We had a memorable stay. Both Barbara and Patrick were gracious, friendly and excellent hosts. They own a beautiful B&B with awesome views. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our chats with them and especially appreciated Patrick's thought provoking riddles and problem solving challenges. They are a charming couple and very hospitable. The breakfast was excellent and plentiful. Our travelling experience throughout Ireland was made more enjoyable having met this great couple. I strongly recommend staying a the The Hillside House B&B.

Never mind the location has the most amazing views of the hills and sea, the house is immaculate, the proprietors, Barbara and Patrick, are very hospitable, or the breakfast is delicious, Maggie and Annie are well worth the visit. I will recommend this place to everyone back home.

From the moment of arrival to the time of departure Hillside is a haven of 'welcome' peace and tranquility. I highly recommend Hillside B&B to anyone from anywhere who is visiting the Carna Gaeltacht area. The information on the B&B website is extremely accurate. The B&B signposts are very well located throughout the adjacent area.

As an Old Age Pensioner the purpose of my visit to Connemara was to try and improve my speaking ability of a very limited knowledge of the Irish language. My priority before travelling from Wexford, was to find a comfortable homely B&B in a quiet location where speaking Irish/English might be spoken with people who would be sympathetic to 'my cause'.

Hillside House B&B in Carna turned out to have everything I wanted and more. Native irish speakers Barbara and Padraig proved to be the perfect hosts who have the gift of making all guests feel 'at home' with their immense store of local knowledge, good humour and in my case extreme understanding. The weather during my four day stay was most inclement but this in no way detracted from the enjoyment of my stay. The rain helped me to focus on the real purpose of my visit and prepare for my nightly efforts at conversing with Barbara and Padraig in Gaelic. They are teachers and mentors par excellence and I greatly appreciated their patience.

Meeting guests from the USA and Switzerland enhanced my visit. I look forward to returning to Hillside before long. In the meantime I will watch the television programmes on TG4 and the lovely presenters with renewed interest. Go raibh maith agaibh.

Room Tip: Lovely view from front rooms.

Stayed here for two nights and the place was great. Room was very nice, clean and spacious for our needs with little touches to make you feel like home. Breakfast and service were excellent as well. Barbara and Patrick are very nice and friendly hosts and would love to see them again.

The location is a bit remote but it is lovely, especially waking up in the morning with a nice view of the bay. It is about one hour drive from Galway and about the same to Clifden. Plenty to see and do in the area.

Nice room, a little on the small side but fantastic views out over Kilkieran Bay and well located to stay before visiting Aran Island as only 35 minute drive from ferry terminal. Host Barbara was a lovely lady and provided a great breakfast.

This was the best place in terms of hospitality! Barbara was a great hostess, who made us feel like home. The house was full of guests (we met some Italian and French) but it did not interfere with our rest at all... We only noticed we had company at breakfast time! Breakfast was everything we expected and more. A true homelike experience! We stayed in spotless family room (large double bed and two single beds), only the bathroom was a bit small, but spotless! We do recommend this place to visit the Connemara area! Thanks for everything Barbara!
