The homely atmosphere of the hotel and the fact that Carna Bay was not a real tourist town No
the service level of the owner and the employees is very good; the hotel infrastructure reflects recent investments, nevertheless the rooms are cosy and old-fashioned style, the site is in roughly equal distance to Kylemore Abbey, Cleggan, Clifden, (air)port to the Aran Islands, Galway (on the way Glengowla mine and Aughnanure castle) => just perfect in Connemara you have to accept the remoteness of Carna Bay itself (it's more a '+' than a '-')
It is a very friendly hotel staff are very helpful, food is very good they seemed to cater for our needs sa we were staying for five nights we were given a larger room so we were pleased all round. the alochol was a bit expensive .

excellent food,friendly staff,very relaxing
have stayed several times always find it relaxing and very welcoming no
Was made feel really at home, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. Food excellent.
Pleasent and welcoming staff and good standard of food available. At the present time €100 euro for a standard double room is above average.
I could bring my dog into the common areas of the hotel The breakfast and it not served in the main dining room.
The room we stayed in was magnificent. The extras like champagne reception and afternoon tea.
This is an excellent hotel where customers come first and the level of service is amazing and excellent This hotel is special no
The suite was large and they did a great job promoting the castle ambiance. A bit expensive for the run down rooms.
The staff were very friendly and the services was great. Nothing was too much trouble.
The food, the surroundings - fab place to stay and eat
The entire experience was great.
Our stay at the Abbeyglen was wonderful, relaxing and just what we needed away from the hub bub of Dublin life and work. It was terrific. I think the large sofa in the lobby could do with being replaced. It was obviously extremely comfortable when it was put in first but you would nearly need a crane to get out of it now. I say this for all the right reasons as alot of older people seem to visit there also and getting of the the couch could prove very difficult for them.:)
A perfect place to relax, perfect service, great food and a magnificent view.
friendly atmosphere, beautiful scenery and a genuine willingness from all staff to help make the stay as good as possible without being in your face either. dining prices
The castle and garden. The breakfast
Food very good but expensive.Good wine list and good prices.Breakfast excellent.Lovey setting and great place for walks ,very peaceful. Furniture in public area very tired and in need of replacement.The classic room we got was very small and would only pass as a 3 star hotel room.Very disappointed with the room as we had heard great things about the hotel.
The location More street signage to be posted on the main road. The Hotel itself is "as good as it gets"
Absolutely everything - this is a real gem. No.
Atmosphere and views Tea served by room service was stewed or the water was poor
The location and scenery were superb and provided a "get away from it all" experience. The old world charm of the hotel itself was also wonderful.
Good location for getting away from it all. Food is excellent. Double room on the small side.
a fantastic establishment that caters for every need,the staff were very friendly and most helpful.
Friendly welcome on arrival to the Hotel
Warm and welcoming atmosphere. Rooms tastefully furnished and very comfortable. Spectacular views of the river from the dining room and our bedroom. Relaxing walks in the castle grounds. Food excellent both in the bar and dining room. Courteous, friendly and helpful staff. Would highly recommend the castle as a place to get away from it all. My husband and I had a wonderful break to celebrate our wedding anniversary.
We had a beautiful room with gorgeous views. The location is idyllic, and was perfect for a totally relaxing autumn break. Loved absolutely everything.... and will definitley go back
easy parking...walking distaance to main part of town no
The pancakes are a must.The downstairs common room was conducive to socializing with other guests. The location was perfect for exploring town on foot and as a base to explore other towns. Owners were very pleasant and accommodating.Can walk on sidewalks to pubs within 2 mins. The rooms/bathrooms are updated, they obviously put money back into their home, it shows. I would definitely stay here again! N/A
Nice location - welcoming staff - good breakfast - low key and friendly No bad points
The service we got was fantastic. Lots of help and concern when we had money issues with a bank in the US. Really great advice about what to see in the area. Very low key and easy place to stay but they were always available to help if needed. Lovely breakfast choices. Clifden is a great base for exploring Connemara. Lots of noise between rooms especially with the plumbing.
The location was excellent - a short stroll from the main streets but far enough away from the noise of the busy pubs and restaurants to get a good nights sleep. Good size rooms, clean and bright, great choice of breakfast in the morning, and a warm and very helpful host....... No, I had a good visit here. I would recommend it to my mother-in-law..... and that says a lot.......!!!
location, comfortable room and beds, lounge, breakfast No tea and coffee in rooms - for this price I would have expected this facility.
Very friendly, family run hotel. Good location within town and reasonable parking available. If you like olde worlde then this is perfect if not... Tea/cofee only available in main lounge, would like facilities in own room. tv was very small (I know not in hotel to watch tv, but nice to have the comfortable option).
The rooms were very clean and spacious. The beds were very comfortable and the the food was good and the service was exellent.
Convenient location, very nice furnishings and fixtures, warm and friendly staff, good advice about local attractions and directions
Quiet location, but within minutes to the town shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast was delicious. Knowledgable staff regarding what to visit in the area. Would have loved black out blinds at the windows.
Relatively nice room. The staff member on reception was quite indifferent to us on arrival. We arrived to be told a function would be on that evening. What we didn't expect was it to be a fashion show with party and live band that went until 1:00am in the morning. Although it may have been for a good cause, we were unable to sleep until 1:30am. We should have been placed higher up. The hallways and lift area were used as a "women's" changing room - as a guest (male or otherwise) it was unacceptable to have to "intrude" into that area to reach your room. Internet was not free and cost 9.95 euro! Although the water was fine to drink, it was very yellow and tasted quite bad, no complimentary water was provided. Have had better value and at guesthouses and hostels.
Relaxed atmostphere and friendly atmostphere. The food at the Signal Pub was adequate and not good value. One small piece of beef fillet as a main course!!
was okay, out of town and more expensive than the numerous b and b's in town (only 20 euros for those). would not go back to this next time.
we had alovely stay at the hotel very relaxed and the food was fantastic would definitily go back with friends i didn't like how you had to pay a deposit on towels when going swimming
I liked the relaxed athmosphere and all the lovely little shops surrounding the hotel, also nice bars. The only thing i did'nt like were the sausages at breakfast, unedible, and the eggs were cold, had eaten breakfast when we were asked for Tea & Toast. Was not impressed with T.V channels poor quality and poor choice.
the staff were very friendly and helpfull
Friendly, helpful staff. Very comfortable beds.Ideally situated in beautiful countryside. would have liked more vegetarian choices on menu at Station Pub.
Comfort, service, facilities and location were all very good. A very relaxing base in a beautiful part of Ireland with much to do within a short distance of the hotel.
We loved the old world feel of the place and loved the gardens. It was home from home.
The location, the staff, the ambience. Lack of indoor facilities e.g. pool, spa. The quality of food and wine was good but perhaps expensive for what it was.
A fantastic service experience. Beautiful food and calm environment inside and out. Thank you!
Relaxed atmosphere, courtesy, food, location, gardens, efficient service.
excellent food, very frendly staff, location ideal for absolut relax. as above
Very friendly staff and the hotel was an interesting place to stay. Epensive wine list and drinks at the bar. I would like for the Hotel to give the true cost of the stay. ie include the service charge in the cost. The general condition of the hotel was a little tired and in the need of refurbishment.The food didn't live up to the awards given. Well with exception of the breakfast, best eggs ever.
Excellent attention to detail, nothing was over looked, absolutely spotless, everywhere ! Fabulous restaurant, menus, and staff.Definitely will recommend. will be back! nothing at all
The personal touch all staff displayed. Attention to detail and the quality of the food.
The hotel was a a high standard and the staff were exceptionally efficient, helpful and charming. Nothing
Everything. The Hotel had lots of character.
Location Bit old
Since I was only sleeping at the hotel, I didn't have an opportunity to try their breakfasts or use the bar. However, generally the staff were very friendly and helpful, and the one dinner I had was of good quality. Its carpets - which were old and too "busy" for my taste; also, the fact that there were no lifts and one had to carry luggage up stairs. I also was surprised that despite being July, there was no Resident's Lounge facility.
I found the hotel to be clean and comfortable with a pleasant staff.
The bed was infested with bed bugs and I came away with bites all over my lower legs. As well at breakfast there was a hair in my food. They have a lot of staff but they should look into the cleanliness of the hote.
foyles hotel is a great base for the wonderful scenery of connemara
It was a nice small Hotel and the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. It was not possible to get food during the night - we were starving and would have loved a sandwich nothing fancy just a plain simple sandwich!!!. Also we asked the night porter to ring a taxi for a friend and they wouldn't and they also would not give us any taxi numbers they were very unhelpful.
Marconi Restaurant was very good.
Reasonable room price Waitress insisted in pouring coffee while guests were having juice/cereal.It was then cold when it was needed - with toast/bbreakfast
We Liked The staff and the comfort of the hotel.The beds were so comfy Im couldmhave stayed all day
Proximity to local bars and restaurants and cosy atmosphere. Breakfast was a bit of a disappointment, very greasy cold fried eggs, cold coffee and generally cold.
very friendly and helpful,would stay again! best breakfast ever!!
Excellent location and very friendly atmosphere. Breakfasts were lovely. Whilst there was coffee available in the lounge, I always prefer the option of having coffee/tea in room.
The staff were very courties, and the hostess was very friendly and answered all of our needs NO
We were made to feel welcome. Love to details. Great, freshly cooked breakfast in several variations.
The breakfast was excellent and buttermilk was also on the buffet. The pancakes were delicious.
Excellent Guest House. Really comfortable mattress on bed. Very good breakfast.
We were made to feel welcome and every effort was made to ensure we were comfortable.
Very convenient to walk into Clifden, nice view from front and dining area. computer/internet a little difficult to use.
Welll equiped B and B with all we could need. Excellent breakfast.
This is a b&b and the personal service was excellent, very welcoming None
