We stayed one night at the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel, and our stay was quite enjoyable. The staff is very cordial, attentive and entertaining, and the meals (dinner and breakfast) were excellent. Our room was very nicely furnished, including a bathroom with two sinks, separate tub and shower, and a heated towel rack. I would have preferred to have an alarm clock in the room, particularly since our requested wake-up call never materialized. (Fortunately, I woke up on time on my own.) The hotel is in an excellent location, close enough to Clifden itself, but with direct access to the scenic Sky Road drive with its views and access to the ruins of Clifden Castle. The hotel provides maps and suggestions for visits, as well as more personalized recommendations. Collapse

We had fun here for a night and the room we got was huge! Was this an upgrade or are all the rooms this big? We were never told. As much as we appreciated the room, it would have been nice to know. The service here is strange. Seems like a lot of locals that work there and like to have fun but no attention to detail. The décor is hap-hazard and downright weird in places. Looks like it used to be quite a place but now it's just holding on. Collapse
Rude service and did not feel welcome!

Upon arriving at Abbeyglen and having travelled the West Coast of Ireland for 3 days prior, we were immediately suspicious as to whether it was a real castle. It certainly did not look as impressive as it did in photos and was rather worn inside. But appearance aside, we were willing to give it a go as we had heard good things about the service, and it seemed like it would be a unique experience. However, upon walking up to reception, we were initially ignored by the lady at the desk who did not reply to our hellos and smiles. Another lady (who had seen us) then went to sit at another table in the reception area which we soon realised was the check-in desk. She didn't look at us, or motion to us to come over, or even acknowledge that we existed. It was awkward and uncomfortable, but we shyly walked up to her, feeling like naughty children who had misbehaved for approaching the wrong desk. Her manner was curt and unwelcoming, and after telling her my name, she riffled through some papers and then declared that we did not have a booking and that we had cancelled our booking a few weeks previous. Of course, I knew for certain that we had not, and after much faffing around, and more feeling shamed, we were told that the only room left in the hotel was a small budget room. I asked whether it would be charged at a lower rate, and what that would be. She was unable to tell me how much the room would be, but assured me that it would be less than what our original booking was. That wasn't very comforting considering the original booking was 150Euros per night! Feeling a bit lost and dejected, we took our bags up to our room and were horrified at what had been offered to us. A tiny, annex room looking out onto the back roof where the ventilation pipes are, damp all over the window sill, freezing cold and tucked right at the back of the house where no light could penetrate. It was horrible and I can't imagine anyone paying anything for that room let alone a discounted price! We decided not to stay, and even the receptionist did not seem surprised at that - it seemed strange that she would even offer such a room to paying guests! The room aside, the main thing that put us off was the terrible attitude of the staff, making us feel like it was our fault for the mistake on the booking, and never once making us feel welcome. The whole experience was awkward and degrading, and we felt like we had really escaped when we decided not to stay. Luckily we found a wonderful, welcoming B&B in Clifton (Dun Ri Guesthouse) which was half the price, with a delicious breakfast and extremely friendly and welcoming. We were so glad we decided not to stay at Abbey Glen! Collapse
