  • Nice stop off to kill and hour or two. Staff were all friendly and we enjoyed looking around and walking to the cottage. Did not see many animals or have a tractor ride however. Worth a visit as it is...  more »
  • We stopped here for tea and were charmed by the tour. Pulled by a huge tractor and comfy in an enclosed wagon, we made our way to the top with stories and singing by our guide, the local farmer. The c...  more »
  • The enthusiasm and kindness of the staff made a very pleasant visit. Unfortunately it was quite a climb up to Dan O`Haras Cottage so we missed a closeup. Apart from a short film there was not a lot to...  more »

  • Stopped by and got some great gifts and food. Enjoyed the homemade soup and tea! Gift shop doesn't accept cards for purchases under €20. Overall, a nice place to stop and get some lunch.
  • Possibly the worst food and most disgusting coffee at exorbitant prices I've ever had the misfortune of experiencing.
  • Lovely experience, although we were somehow dissapointed, because we thought, there would be more Connemara horses. Is it worth the price? If you are interested in the life of Dan O'Hara: Yes. If you are just interested in nice pictures of Connemara: There are plenty of other activities around Clifden/Letterfrack, where you can find some good views aswell. And which are cheaper. The staff is great and helpful.
  • Wonderful views and scenery.
  • One of the to do day trips when visiting or staying in Connemara lots to see explore, nice cafe and gift shop

Where to stay in Clifden

The authentic charms of Clifden are best experienced while staying in the center of this seaside town. Here you will find several places to spend the night, from upscale hotels to quaint bed and breakfasts. For a more typical Irish experience, opt for the latter. Backpackers generally head for the town's hostels, while travelers with a larger budget often stay at the 19th-century castle-turned-hotel. If price is not a concern, look into renting a traditional Irish home.
