Clifden is a charming town, and a perfect location from which to explore the Connemara. The Sea Mist House offers a charming and well situated spot in Clifden, close enough to walk to all the restaurants and shops. The home itself is beautiful, and Sheila is a warm host. She has furnished the rooms with comfort in mind. Everything is...

We were told Clifden was a great place to visit and found it a little too 'tourist destination' for our liking but Shiela's gorgeous home and hospitality were an experience on their own. Deservedly voted the best b'nb in the area. Comfortable - even luxurious - with beautiful furnishing and gardens. Great breakfast. Helpful advice. Ynobtrusive attention.

The first guest house we stopped at was full but they kindly called the Sea Mist House which had two rooms left. What a lovely find. We were made very welcome by Sheila and her husband and when our friend travelling with us had a 'funny turn' and felt unwell they were so accommodating in giving her a more suitable...
