We tried to find a special place to stay for the last night during our trip in Ireland. Definitely we found the right one. The owner offered us to stay in the family room, which was lovely and comfortable. The sea is close, the area is relaxing. Moreover we asked the owner about good restaurants in the city, so on...

We recently stayed at Faul House on a short tour around Connemara and were all delighted with our choice. I have worked as a guide and travelled extensively in Ireland and have probably stayed in 100 B&B's over the years. This one is right up there in the top league! The owners were so nice and welcoming, the rooms nice...

My daughter and I just returned from a very beautiful stay at The Faul House, near Clifden, in Connemara. I had found The Faul House online, and after reading everything they had to offer I immediately made our reservations. Upon our arrival we found that The Faul House held everything their website had promised, which is rather uncommon these days....

This is the most welcoming house I have ever stayed in, so homely and comfortable. The lady of the house Kathleen was there to greet myself and my husband when we arrived, giving us such a nice welcome. The room we stayed in was bright and spacious and catered for all our needs. We stayed for three nights and I...

We had a great time here, especially walking down through the historic family property to the sea, petting the miniature horse and mare with a new foal. We had fun collecting eggs for a really good breakfast topped off by Michael's stewed rhubarb. Delightful people, clean and comfortable place. Kathleen guided us to some special walks and wonderful places to...

Just spent two nights in the wonderful Faul House outside Clifden in Connemara and what a special experience. This B&B is a little hideaway of warm, welcoming hospitality in the most mystical of landscapes. Sea views, ancient old walls and hawthorn trees leaning into atlantic breezes all around conjure up otherworldly times. The walks were stunning and the light in...

My husband and I recently spent 2 nights here and had a fantastic time. Kathleen the hostess is a delight and makes you feel at home. The rooms are spotless and the beds are *SO* comfortable. There is a peat fire at night which is a special Connemara experience. Breakfast was top notch. I know it seems like a simple...

We had a wonderful two day stay in the family room at Faul House. Michael let the children collect eggs for their breakfasts and introduced them to the animals - a treat for city dwellers. Location is perfect for walking and exploring. Kathleen keeps Faul House absolutely spotless and very comfortable. Delicious breakfast, warm welcome, friendly atmosphere. Highly recommended.

Situated about 2km outside Clifden, far enough to build up an appetite and close enough to walk home. If you're looking for a definition of warm Irish welcome, then spend a night or two in the company of Michael and Kathleen. Their fantastic breakfasts will prepare you for the moist Irish weather, and their comfortable living room with big turf...

My Husband and I and my parents stayed at Faul House for several days whilst exploring Connemara this Spring. Kathleen is a wonderful hostess - very knowledgeable about the area, welcoming, full of interesting stories and her breakfasts are to die for! The rooms are comfortable with everything you need. Fantastic local walks and Clifden has some lovely eating places...
