Famous for its stunning views and whether you are on foot, in a car or travelling by bike you are in for treat.
The hotel is located next to Connemara National Park with a range of hiking trails available for people of all abilities and is a stunning day out any time of the year. With great attractions like Kylemore Abbey, Killary Sheep Farm, Dan O’Hara’s Heritage Centre & Killary Fjord Cruises the Clifden Station House is the ideal location for day trips and keeping the whole family entertained.
