We've stayed here twice. It's within walking distance of Clifden's main street, but is in a quiet, scenic location. It has everything - Great rooms, breakfast, decor ( cow themed....), parking, wifi,etc. etc. But it's best feature is the welcome. It feels like you're a guest in someone's home as you have tea in the lounge and peruse Clifden's restaurant...

If you enjoy staying in B&Bs, then you'll have difficulty finding better in that field. This place really is everything being done right... It's warm and inviting, welcomed with cake and coffee, the roomas are always warm, the staff unobtrusive and the place is immaculately clean... you're guaranteed a brilliant breakfast, plenty of options and the best pancakes you'll ever...

Cathriona had lots of information about the area. Our room was comfortable and the shower was very good. The location of this b and b was perfect just a short walk to town. I would recommend Buttermilk lodge as a place to stay.

All the reviews of this guest house mention the great breakfast, and I have to agree. The cooked breakfast was plentiful and very tasty. The rooms are of the country-cottage style, which I like.The staff were extremely friendly and courteous. This guest house is well located, it really is only a 5 minute walk into the heart of the town...
