The Quay House

The Quay HouseThe Quay House is Clifden’s oldest building, dating from c.1820. It was originally the harbourmaster’s house but later became a Franciscan monastery, then a convent and finally a hotel owned by the Pye family.

It is now run as a town house by the Foyle family, whose forebears have been entertaining guests in Connemara for nearly a century.

The Quay House stands right on the harbour, just 7 minutes walk from the town centre. All rooms are furnished with good antiques and original paintings; several have working fireplaces and all but two overlook the harbour. All have large bathrooms with tubs and showers and there are also two ground floor rooms for wheelchair users.

The owners are always on hand for advice on local activities ie fishing, horse riding, golfing, hiking etc. There are several excellent restaurants and pubs within walking distance.
