Americans like us love Ireland because the people are warm, gentle, and hospitable in a way that we do not much encounter in our own country, or elsewhere. Caitlin exemplifies this Irish gentleness; she's thoughtful, considerate and kind as well as hospitable. The location of the Atlantic Wave is magnificent: It is at the end of a lane on the... More

Caitlin made us feel very welcome. It was a wonderful home to visit in a lovely location. My only regret is that we didn't plan to stay there longer. We planned to 'drop in' for a night, and it would have been nice place to just sit and enjoy.

Stayed here for a few days in August and had a fantastic time. Caitín and her family made us feel very welcome and nothing was ever any trouble. It's a lovely part of Connemara full of empty beaches so well worth spending some time exploring. In short - highly recommended!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
DescriptionAtlantic Wave is a beautiful, comfortable house filled with paintings made by the owner. The B&B offers to its guests 4 comfortable rooms with sea view (2 on first floor and 2 on ground floor) and a private lounge with TV-DVD on the ground floor. Each bedroom has its own bathroom facilities. Breakfast is served in the spacious dining room and includes a large variety of fresh fruit, cereals, yoghurt and of course the traditional Irish breakfast. You can order other combinations.The most charming about Atlantic Wave is the fact that it is only 5 minutes walking distance from the beach and it is also not too far from Twelve Bens, in southern direction. In the surroundings, the city of Clifden, with its 2000 habitants, is considered the capital of Connemara. ... more   less
