I traveled throughout Ireland for over a week and stayed at 5 different hotels and by far the Quay House was the best! The hospitality was fantastic! Julia, Patrick and their boys went above and beyond to make our stay so wonderful.

There is nothing better than to be welcomed by Paddy, the owner, and be shown to the Napoléon room “because I am French”. The whole place is full of antiques and charm, full of storytelling and fun. And the breakfast in the conservatory a delight.


Paddy and Julia were excellent hosts and made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean, spacious and eccentrically beautiful. The bed was very comfortable, and we had one of our best night’s sleep in a long time. This is a hidden gem of Connemara.


Built for the Harbour Master nearly 200 years ago, The Quay House is Clifden’s oldest building. It has also been used as a Franciscan monastery, then a convent and finally a hotel owned by the Pye family. Now providing town house accommodation in Clifden, it is run by the Foyle family, whose forebears have been entertaining guests in Connemara for nearly a century.
