Clifden travelogue picture
We arrived in Clifden, very late in the evening. Our plans were totally changed today as it was not the last time that we changed our minds, but all the time for the better. In our original plan we would stay in Rossavael, the village where the ferry towards Inishmore leaves. But because this was such a small place we decided to ride towards Clifden and find a place to stay along the way. But we are particular, a place to stay has to need a pub next to it. OK not next to it but in walking distance and the first one we found in Clifden, the place where we should stay the next day. We parked our car in front of a B&B and at 21h30 we enter the door and booked a room, what can you ask for more. Luckily we already had eaten on the ferry and so after a shower we go to explore the Clifden pub life.

Favourite spots:

The Skyroad. This 10.5 km long road brings you next to the Clifden Bay and it gives you an amazing view over Clifden and it's bay and a few small islands on the coast. It's a steep and windy road, but it has to offer an amazing scenery if you take your time to travel it.

What's really great:

The Irish pubs off course, the music that they play, but also the scenery around Clifden, like before we arrived in Clifden, we drove across some beautiful country side towards Maam Cross, to bad that we were in a hurry and that we only could stop to take some photos.

The scenery around Clifden is dominated by the twelve Bens and you have also the skyroad that gives you some spectaculair coastal views.

The Errismor House, a local B&B.

Mrs Ann Schley a very friendly lady and her husband are running this place. It's located in the centre, just a hundred meter walk from the pubs and supermarket.

The rooms are clean and they have private shower. Like in all B&B is the breakfast superb.

They had more detailed maps of the area available for us and pointed us also towards the skyroad.

Those Irish Pubs with their live music. I can't get enough of it. The band that was playing here was amazing and that lead singer oh man could he play witht those spoons. It was a superb evening and night and later in our bed those impressions were still printed in our eyes.

Was just in Galway and I agree that Clifden is a lovely place--the Twelve Bens are spectacular!
