Clifden Travel Tips

A Stay in Clifden Vacation Rentals

Vacation Rental By Owner allows travelers to Clifden in County Galway the chance to live like a local, staying in the owner's home instead of a hotel or hostel. Clifden is a seaside town with the Atlantic Ocean to the west and the Connemara mountains to the east. It offers everything from fishing to mountain climbing in a quaint locale where the loudest noise at night is the sound of the ocean's waves.

Eating and Living Like a Clifden Native

Clifden accommodations in the form of a County Galway house rental offer the chance to stay in a house with a full kitchen. In Clifden, this means taking advantage of the local farmer's market and buying fish that come directly off the fishing boats that make landing on the village jetty. This way, a family on holiday can eat together, affordably, and experience the best local food. The money saved on restaurant food can instead be spent on ale at the local centuries-old pubs, or used to charter a fishing boat or whale watching cruise.

Historic Clifden and its Natural Beauty

Clifden is one of the westernmost towns in Ireland, and is surrounded by history and natural beauty. The village was once the land contact for the Trans-Atlantic Cable. Among its notable natives is Jon Riley, who led the St. Patrick's Irish Battalion for Mexico in the Mexican-American war. The ruins of the John D'Arcy castle are visible on the clifftops as one drives North on Route N59, and it's just one of the castles in the Connemara region of Ireland. There is also the Sky Road, an amazing scenic route that gives constant views of the coastline (though it's not a great trip if you're scared of heights). Galway house rentals allow you to find the Clifden accommodation you're looking for in a west Ireland vacation.
