As we have said elsewhere, there are no hotels on the Aughrus Peninsula itself; however, we believe you will find the accommodation you need, at very good value and excellent quality, from the long list of B&Bs - many of them listed on this website. BUT: some visitors prefer to find an hotel for their holiday; and below we provide brief descriptions, with links to their websites, of a range of hotels in the environs.


The ABBEYGLEN CASTLE HOTEL on the Sky Road just within Clifden town is famous for its hospitality and sense of old-world atmosphere mixed with luxury. The Castle itself was built in 1832, and each bedroom has a stylish feel; the nine luxury suites, says the hotel's website (not incorrectly!) "...are bound to make you feel like a King or Queen of the castle!"  


 Every aspect of the hotel is meticulously managed by Paul and Brian Hughes. Its Castle Restaurant has won two AA rosettes for the quality and presentation of its food. Among the hotel's many facilities is a new Beauty and Relaxation Centre, available exclusively to its guests. So if you're looking for luxury, on the Sky Road itself, within a few minutes walking to the centre of town - and only 10 minutes' drive from the Aughrus Peninsula! - check out the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel by clicking HERE!

The BALLYNAHINCH CASTLE HOTEL is on the other side of Clifden from the Aughrus Peninsula, easily accessed from the Galway-Clifden N59 road. We mention it here because it is truly a wonderful hotel in a wonderful location (the photo to the right is just one of many wonderful photos on the hotel's own website). It's famed for its excellent freshwater angling facilities, but for much more also: its location, its level of comfort, its friendly atmosphere (the Bar is a great place to stop by for an informal lunch, while you're touring the area), and its excellence in food. It has been awarded Hotel of the Year by the critic, Georgina Campbell - this is a real award of excellence by one of Ireland's best-known and trusted food (and hotel) critics. Ballynahinch Castle Hotel has been - and remains - favoured by royalty and stars; yet it also successfully manages to retain its friendliness towards all.

FOYLES HOTEL in Clifden is the town's longest established hotel, is family run, and is right in the centre. It has 25 comfortable bedrooms, fitted out to the very highest standards. Its Marconi Restaurant has a justifiably high reputation. Ask for Margaret or Stephen; or the Aughrus Peninsula's own JUNE; and please don't forget to mention that you found the link to their hotel from the AughrusPeninsula Website!  For Foyles Hotel's own website, just click HERE.



 ROSLEAGUE MANOR, off the N59 not far from the Aughrus Peninsula (at Moyard, before reaching Letterfrack), rightly describes itself as " of Ireland's finest regency hotels". It is set beside  Ballynakill Bay (the bay just to the north of Cleggan Bay), and is secluded in 30 acres of its own private woodland. It has 16 Superior Bedrooms, and 4 'Junior' bedrooms, each of them unique in their layout and design. The hotel prides itself on the fine quality of its food and wine, served in their beautiful restaurant.
