Abbeyglen Castle Hotel, Clifden, Ireland
A rare gem in Clifden
I stayed here recently. From the time you enter this house you know its different. Jim the gentle barman slash waiter is a great guy and worth his weight on gold. We felt we never left home such was the hospitality offered. Great food and relaxed surroundings what more could you ask for. The resident owner aka ghost has a real gem here in beautiful Connemara. Look forward to the daily complimentary prosecco and cnapes. I,ll be back.

It isn't Downton Abbey!
This is a former abbey, not a former castle. It has been refurbished as a country manor but could use a serious renovation and upgrade to bring it to the next level. Some of the furnishings are tacky and not in exactly a charming country home shabby-chic. Some things were being services...the sauna and spa were out of commission. But, when the sun shines, it all evaporates and the place has a lot of comfortable charm and the rough edges seem less important.
