We spent our honeymoon here. It was THE most honeymoon location - out of town, quiet, beautiful views, excellent staff, great bar and delicious food. It was romantic and more than we had hoped for. It was by far our favorite location and hotel that we stayed at in Ireland.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay of two nights in September 2016. The hotel faces west with amazing views (of sunsets if you are lucky) both from our bedroom and the dining room. Situated a couple of kilometres outside Clifdon the hotel offered a taxi service there in the evenings but we were content to enjoy the food in the excellent...

The world is full of cookie cutter chain hotels. The Ardagh Hotel & Restaurant, on the other hand, is in its own unique category. It is a wonderful combination of old world charm and character with modern conveniences. It was a good place to begin our Ireland adventure.

Food was excellent with personalized service from the owner. The views of the water and beautiful surroundings are outstanding. A wonderful surprise in this area of Ireland. Only downside is you have to walk up a flight if stairs to get to restaurant.

This hotel, including the resteraunt, was just great. The room was well appointed and the staff was very friendly. The resteraunt had beautiful views and served great food and wine. We will make this hotel a must next time we visit Ireland.

This hotel was situated fairly close to the beach area and nestled in against the rocky slope behind. It was quite comfortable the owner (South African guy) was very friendly and helpful. The dining room is smallish but quite intimate overlooking the bay area. Great to have breakfast there watching the new day dawn over the water. The hotel itself...

Located just a kilometer outside Clifden this is a really convienient spot. We stayed two nights in a lovely suite with great sea views. Despite the fact that it was August there was a lovely log fire in the bar which was in fact very welcome given the inclement weather. We eat in the restaurant on one of the nights...

My husband and I enjoyed 6 nights here . We stayed in a junior suite which was very spacious , had a comfortable large bed , lounge area and beautiful views. If I had to pick one area to improve it would be the bathroom which compared to the room looked slightly dated but it was a reasonably sized bathroom...

The Ardagh Hotel is a in a perfect location, overlooking a sea loch, with beautiful gardens to the rear, only a few minutes from Clifden. The bedrooms are lovely, with a cosy sitting room nearby. On the top floor is a sun room with amazing views. The restaurant serves delicious seafood and breakfast was super. I would love to return.
