Welcome to Buttermilk Lodge
Buttermilk Lodge is a warm and friendly home away from home. Purpose-built for modern comfort on a quiet and sheltered hillside, we’re just a 400 metre (5 minute) walk to Clifden Town, the capital of Connemara. You can park your car in our paved car park and walk to town. There is private safe parking for motorbikes and bicycles to the rear of the house.
Clifden has numerous pubs, (there’s live music many nights in winter time and nightly from 6.30pm in summer time !) excellent restaurants, cafes, shops, galleries and other attractions. Connemara, with its mountains, beaches and spectacular coastline, is an area of outstanding beauty that draws people to return again and again.
The Wild Atlantic Way is Ireland’s first long-distance touring route, stretching along the Atlantic coast from Donegal to West Cork. Buttermilk Lodge is set on this wonderful route. A perfect base for touring Connemara and its many hidden gems.
