Clifden, Ireland B&B
Posted Oct 28, 2015
I stayed at Sharamore for one night (26 Oct, 2015) and was pleased with my choice. The room was very cozy with comfortable king bed, wardrobe, a couple of chairs, and ensuite bath with shower. From my room I had a nice view to the water (with sunset!) and up a hill to a pasture where a couple of horses were grazing. The place was super quiet, so I had a great sleep. It was also very clean.
The breakfast choices were phenomenal, but since I'm not a big breakfast eater, I stuck to the wonderful homemade bread, fresh fruit, and tea. On the menu was fresh fish, smoked salmon, full Irish, eggs Benedict (I think with the smoked salmon), pancakes, and lots of other choices. If you're a breakfast lover, you will not want to miss this - everything I saw come out of the kitchen looked delicious, and I heard no complaints around me!
Sharamore is located just beyond one end of the Sky Road, a spectacular drive that towers above the water and has amazing views. It's also close to the town of Clifden (about a 10 min drive), which is large enough to have a gas station, bank (for which I had great need), and plenty of good places to eat. My host suggested Guy's Bar, and it was a great recommendation. This B&B is also fairly near the Connemara national park.
I would not hesitate to recommend a stay at Sharamore. It's off the beaten path, but convenient to the park and a town that should have something for everyone.
