Along the Way

To Clifden


Clifden is a town on the coast of County Galway, Ireland and is Connemara’s largest town. Connemara is a district in the west of Ireland. Clifden is located on the Owenglen River and the river flows into Clifden Bay.

Stopped by E.J. Kings Bar & Restaurant for drinks. Sat outside on the patio soaking up the sun and people watching.

Clifden Castle

A ruined manor house west of the town of Clifden. Built in 1818 for John D’Arcy, the local landowner, in the Gothic Revival style. Uninhabited after 1894 and fell into disrepair. In 1935, ownership passed to a group and became a ruin.

Abbeyglen Castle

A Great Experience! Paul and Brian Hughes are part of the great experience and offer guests the BEST customer experience ever!

The Abbeyglen Castle Hotel is located on Sky Road overlooking the town of Clifden and Clifden Bay.

We ate dinner here both nights and the food and wine were excellent. Your entrée is brought to you under a silver dome and then the wait staff does an awesome unveiling.

The Experience of Abbeyglen Castle

  • The Staff. Welcoming, friendly and at your service offering world class service.
  • The “Throne” that greets you upon arrival as well as the outside fireplace and Gilbert.
  • Great Accommodations with plenty of space; living area, dining area, office area, sleeping area, and bathroom area.

  • Excellent Dining. Gourmet food with a great wine selection that is reasonable priced. Music plays while you dine.
  • The music continues in the evening in the bar area. Another great place to relax with glass in hand by the fireplace.
  • Sitting areas inside with comfortable chairs and fireplaces. H-O-M-E
  • Spectacular grounds to explore and to take a walk.
