From the moment we arrived it was clear that we were in good hands as the owner, Catriona, offered us tea or coffee which were ready for us as soon as we had unpacked the car. It was a typically wet windy autumn night so, after a long drive, it was wonderful to sit and sip our tea in the comfort of the clean, spacious visitors lounge and luxuriated in the warmth of a real Connemara turf fire. Catriona came to check if everything was o.k. and we nagged away at her about the Connemara ponies - a special interest of ours - but at no point did she show the slightest sign of impatience but was, instead, upbeat and generous with her information. The cleanliness, comfort, warmth and spaciousness of the visitors lounge, extended to our bedroom too. A detailed file on walks in the area, carefully written compiled by Catriona herself, made excellent bedtime reading. The next morning, after a perfect breakfast, we went for a walk along Kilarry fjord, which Catriona's notes had recommended was ideal if the weather was windy or misty i.e. not really suitable for the mountains. Sure enough, even though a strong wind was blowing, most of our walk was completely sheltered and therefore that much more enjoyable. It is this kind of attention to detail which goes above and beyond the basics of cleanliness and comfort, and of which I could give many other examples, which sets this B&B apart from many of the others I've stayed in.
What was not to like? We were given a warm welcome along with tea and delicious homebaked boiled cake in the lounge. Our bedroom was spacious, spotless and quiet and the bed was so comfy. The breakfasts were amazing - there was such a variety of food - such as 4 types of juice, fruit and yogurts, fresh fruit, homebaked scones and breads, ham and cheese and an extensive menu of cooked breakfasts. There were even daily "specials". Cathriona and Patrick were very friendly and the town centre was about a 5 minute walk away. 2 nights were not enough!
Great breakfast, large comfortable room and friendly staff. Liked the small details such as menus for the local restaurants. Good wifi and parking. 10 to 15 minute easy walk into town.
warm welcome room was clean and comfortable breakfast was lovely
nothing stay was perfect :)
Really beautiful house with lovely clean rooms and cow-themed throughout! Cup of tea or coffee as soon as we arrived and rooms were spotless with comfy beds! Terrific breakfast in the morning with options other than a Full Irish Fry-Up (great when watching your figure!). Great local knowledge of walks - perfect location for the Connemara National Park!
I found the cow theme truly terrifying ... Brings obsession to a new level (but only in a good way!)
Everything. When we arrived we had a nice fire in the fireplace to get the chill off. All the amenities were there (Kleenex,clock, wash clothes, shampoo etc) that were spotty in some of the others. The food was excellent and Patrick could not have been more accommodating! Thank you
Very kind owner; delicious food; nice location
Good location,excellent food,convenient for the town.
Clean, on main highway, easy to find, close to town center. Great food.
Room little on small size, felt a little cramped. Little small tv with poor TV reception. If staying for more than a days may not be ideal site.
One of the best B&B`s we have ever stayed in.Great accommodation,great breakfasts and very obliging hosts.
Location , 5 mins to town. Lovely guest house, spacious lovely breakfast area. Fantastic breakfast. Friendly hosts. Ample parking
Nothing negative to say!
Experience at running a B&B showes through. Hosts Patrick and Katrina were brilliant in all respects. A great place to stay, in splendid location, easy access to Clifden, but just far enough away to be quiet if required. Thanks you so much for a great few days.
The fact that we couldn't stay longer
Warm welcome with tea and cake and a hive of useful information. Easy walk to town centre.
On a main road (though not really that busy given it's in the west of Ireland!) A room at the back of the house would probably be better.
Near town. Professional. Immaculately clean. Laundry service - in by 10am and back in the room, nicely folded, before 5pm! Attention to detail. Amazing cooked breakfast and delectable breakfast bar in addition'
We couldn't stay there longer!
Everything. Friendly, efficient and caring. Very good food and a lovely room. Didn't need the wi-fi. The emphasis on cows is amusing.
Nothing. I really can't think of any way my experience at the Lodge could have been any better.
Breakfast was wonderful. Location is within easy walking distance of town center.
I was offered a pot of tea and cookies in the beautiful lounge upon arrival-always a nice touch after being on the road (which involved a flat tire this time). I enjoyed the numerous cow items scattered everywhere, including the edge of the steps. The B&B had Everything one might need in the room. Example: cotton balls, Q-tips, room freshener, outlet adaptor & homemade sewing kit. They even had a luggage scale to use-so helpful! The home is located within a few minutes stroll to the Main Street with shops and pubs, but set back from the road...so quiet and peaceful.
I have nothing negative to say about my stay at Buttermilk Lodge.
Lovely atmosphere. Beautifully clean and loved the collection of cows. Lovely lady and a hearty breakfast. Highly recommended and hope to visit again.
We had a very warm welcome and nothing we asked was too much trouble. I would definitely recommend this B and B
Friendly, comfortable, good location
Clean rooms, hospitality and the fabulous, fresh made breakfast
pressure of the water of the shower
Friendly welcome and convenient to town centre
everything, and more, has been thought of.
steepness of stairs, and no ponies in sight.
Pat and Cathriona were friendly and helpful. Everything you could possibly need or want had been thought of including things that most B&Bs don't think of ie laundry service, shoe cleaning and sewing kits, iron and board. There were even some games in one of the drawers. I would give Buttermilk Lodge 5 stars and we will definitely bring our Scottish friends here to show them how it's done in Clifden.
