The “moo”rning will be so sweet after the lovely breakfast we had 🙂

As a Chef/Hospitality Professor, I cannot say enough great things about my recent stay at Buttermilk Lodge. In fact, I would use Buttermilk Lodge to highlight the very essence of operating a B&B. I was greeted by name, checked in, served complimentary tea and homemade fruit cake in a cosy lounge, all within minutes. Given I was by myself, I truly appreciated the gift of Cathriona’s time and shared laughter before I retired. She is a wonderful, caring, informative, & hard working lady. If there was an award for Clifden Hospitality Person Of The Year, Cathriona has my vote! My room “Buttermilk” was spotlessly clean and perfect for my needs. I tip my toque to her husband Pat for cooking a marvelous Irish Breakfast á la minute. I would not wish to stay anywhere else when I return to the Clifden area… It exemplifies “home away from home”!!
Thank you! Our Stay was wonderful, you have a very beautiful and welcoming home!
