Clifden and Sunnybank are the ideal location for groups offering excellent accommodation and the freedom to discover Connemara, amble down to the town without relying on cars and transport or just enjoying the spacious living area in and around the houses, whether lazing by the pool, or curling up in front of the fire with a good book.
