Our family of 23 stayed at the Sunnybank House for the week and wish it was longer. The description in the listing cannot compare to the beauty of this home! Shane is a fabulous person who was always available at a moments notice! We can only cherish every day we spent in Clifden - from the beauty and convenience of the house and grounds to the wonderful people in the town of Clifden. We had the best food and the most talented people playing music every night in whatever restaurant we went to. Everyone and everything was perfect! I know our grandchildren are looking forward to returning to catch up with the wonderful friends they made in the short week we spent. We had dinner catered by Gillian on Monday night for our granddaughters 21 birthday - it too was perfect from set up to clean up! What a delightful woman! She even made a birthday cake to celebrate the occasion! My husband and I have traveled to Ireland on four occasions and we have to say this trip will forever be the most cherished.
Absolutely Fantastic Home and Hosts
We were so thrilled with how beautiful this house was and so convenient for our large group. Each bedroom had an ensuite bathroom which was so nice for all of us. We just felt so comfortable. The house was clean, beds were comfortable, the pool was warm, and even though the O'Grady's had just welcomed their first child into the world the day before we arrived Sean made it a point to get over at least twice during our visit to make sure everything was going well.
The village is a quaint town with very friendly residents. Lots of pubs with live Irish folk music, cafes, bakeries, butchers, and other stores, activities, and points of interest very close by. We rented a car in Dublin and drove to Clifden, which was nerve-wracking as driving in Ireland can sometimes be a challenge. We discovered you can get tickets on Citilink bus from Clifden to Dublin for $20 Euro which is quite cheap.
All in all, I would recommend Sunnybank House to anyone with a large group as we all enjoyed our stay. I would also recommend staying in Clifden as opposed to Dublin which was a little too big and too fast-paced for all of us that were looking for some Irish history and culture.
Thanks to Sean and Rachael for making Sunnybank House such a lovely home away from home.
What a fab place to stay. Shane had the fire lit and a lovely welcome pack of treats when we arrived. The house feels like home even though its huge. Our families had plenty of space to stretch out. The children loved paying hide and seek and the grown ups loved just relaxing. The house is very clean with all modern conveniences including an ice maker. We had our wedding week long celebration here and it exceeded our expectations. Gillian catered for us and everyone raved about the food. I loved the special effort she made for my fussy vegetarian needs. I'm told the lamb was amazing. We highly recommend this beautiful house in a very special location as a wonderful backdrop for lifelong happy memories.
We love Sunnybank House
20 of my best friends and family members from all over the US, Ireland and the UK convened in Clifden at Sunnybank House and Lodge to celebrate my birthday and that of my duaghter's father in law. Having been to Ireland before we thought we knew what to expect but Sunnybank exceeded all of our expectations. From booking imquiries right up to checking out Shane O'Grady, who we dubbed "The hardest working man in Galway" was as efficient and helpful as anyone could hope for. The property itself is just about perfect for a crew like ours. Each bedroom was lovely and comfortable.
The kitchen, what a kitchen ! Feeding the lot of us was a breeze, Shane recommended a boat captain who took us out to the sea where we caught more than enough fish to feed us all a couple of times over. Directly from the sea through the kitchen and into the dining room and voila a meal that will be remembered for a long time.
But the Fiesta mas grande was when Gillian came in and took over the kitchen to cook up delicious Irish feast for us.
A short stroll of a couple of blocks and you're into town for shopping or just hanging around beautiful Clifden . Getting to Kylemore Abbey, Galway town and the Aran Islands is easy from there.
Somehow Shane was able to order up a week of sunshine for us so we could swim in the pool every day.
I have polled my constituency about our stay for this review and the results are unanimous.
We love this place!!
In a word Stunning
We booked Sunny bank house for our wedding at the start of May 2011. On arrival in the house we were blown away. Believe me when I say that the pictures of this house do not do it justice. We had 15 People staying in the house and it really felt like a home not just a rental. As a wedding venue we could not have asked for more. As a holiday home it is exquisite. On arrival Shane had the fires lit and some goodies for us to nibble. I would recommend this home to anyone who is looking for a truly amazing space and memories that will not soon be forgotten.
Thank you for a wonderful time.
Stayed in the 4 bedroomed seaside cottage over the May bank holiday weekend. We booked this as a surprise for my mother-in-laws 60th birthday. Absolutely fabulous. Would highly recommend this for a family holiday or for 4 couples heading away for a rural break. Clifden is about 5 mins down the road in a car, and cheap as chips in a taxi if you fancy a few pints in the town. Cottage is well kitted out, nicely finished, wifi, sky tv, etc. etc.
Clifden ist die Hauptstadt von Connemara, einer der schönsten & unberührtesten Regionen Europas. Die Gegend liegt 1h von Galway & Westport & hat herrliche Strände, Berge, Connemara National Park & traditionelle irische Fischerdörfer. Clifden hat 2000 Einwohner & ist eine lebendige, kulturelle Stadt mit vielen Restaurants, Pubs, Geschäften & Wochenmarkt. Fischerboote verlassen täglich den Kai & bieten frischen Fisch, der vor Ort zu kaufen ist. Der Meisterschafts-Links-Golfplatz Ballyconeelley, Clifden Boat Club, die Abenteuerzentren Delphi & Killary, Station House Theatre, täglich Bootsausflüge zu Inseln – viele Aktivitäten für jeden. Hervorragende Basis, um das echte Irland zu entdecken – seine Schönheit & sein kulturelles Erbe sind unübertroffen. Ungewöhnlich für die heutige Zeit, aber Sie finden verlassene Strände, können Spaziergänge durch die Landschaft mit Connemara Ponys, Tierwelt, Flora & Fauna machen, Frieden & Ruhe! Oder Sie nehmen an den vielen Aktivitäten der Gegend teil.
