This is a lovely, cosy place to stay. The room was clean and very comfortable. I was given coffee and refreshments as soon as I checked in and the breakfast is delicious. It’s in a super convenient location, only a short walk outside of town. Would definitely recommend!

Cozy comforts
This was a one night stay while we drove around the Connemara peninsula. The Buttermilk Guest Lodge provided us with warm, clean, quiet accommodations within a walkable distance to the town center. Breakfast was good and provided plenty of options. This was a larger facility than others we had stayed at yet kept a cozy homelike feel equipped with a common sitting room for all guests and even a lit fireplace at night.

Don't hesitate!
Words cannot describe how well this property is run. It is far beyond any expectations. Catriona and Patrick go to great lengths to assure your needs are met or exceeded. The breakfast is beyond compare. Moovelous!
Marc, us2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
The day we arrived was my partners birthday and we had recently gotten engaged the week before. Upon finding out this news the hosts left complimentary chocolates and bottle of champaign in our room which was such a beautiful gesture and made our holiday all the more memorable. I was in contact with the hosts before arriving to ask for suggestions on where to take my partner for dinner for his birthday and they were so accomodating in recommending restaurants, offering to book the restaurant and taxi for us it was wonderful! The breakfasts are AMAZING! much more like a fancy cafe breakfast than a BnB, best BnB breakfast we have ever had. The rooms are good size for a BnB, clean, neat, comfortable. The fireplace in the entry room is lovely to sit by and we personally loved the quirky "cow touches" as decorations everywhere. Would return in a heartbeat and hope to again soon!

Everything we wanted
Our 2 nights at Buttermilk Lodge were very enjoyable. The location was great in two ways - the walk to the center of Clifden was pleasant and took only 5 or 10 minutes, and the proximity to the Connemara area for day trips couldn't have been better. Our room was homey (with a cow and buttermilk theme) and bright. Reading lights next to the bed were appreciated. Of course, the breakfast bar and breakfast specials were excellent. Easy to recommend this accommodation.
