One night in Clifden
Nice guest house within walking distance of the town, about 5 to 10 minutes. Bed was comfortable, Breakfast excellent. Owner loves her cows which are everywhere in the house (models...not real cows)

Trad music haven near Connemara
Super friendly staff, excellent food, great tips for local things to do / see / eat / drink / listen, a very friendly neighborhood of restaurants and pubs, all within a short walk that’s well outlined in walking guides available in-room and explained by your host.

I was welcomed to Buttermilk with tea and cake in the lounge room which was a great area to meet other travellers. My room was comfy, quiet and roomy. Lots of choices at breakfast. I only had 1 night here but could have stayed longer as the area has lits to offer.
