We stayed for 2 night in late July in 2013 and found the room to be bright spacous and modern. Our hosts were friendly, thoughtful and very helpful. The breakfast was also excellent. We would certainly stay again if we were in the area.

I stayed here just before moving to Clifden with work. My stay here was very comfortable and the owners were very helpful. I would definately recommend the Race Course Lodge as its very close to town and you are well looked after.

The B&B is located quite close to the very center of Clifden, around 10 min walk. The room we got was specious, nice and very clean. We got a cot for our child :) Breakfast was fantastic and we could choose something more than full irish :) Very positive and definitely worth to recommend.
