Good day ~ my husband and I are planning on spending a few days in Clifden. We are both in our 70's and will be using public transportation. We would like to know how to get to Kylemore Abbey and also we would like to know if anyone in town we could hire to drive us to Westport. So we won't have to that the 6 hour bus ride. Thanking you in-advance.
Can you please recommend a good takeaway in Clifden?
I need a picture of the memorial to John Riley that is supposedly in the Clifden town centre
From the U.S., Should I fly into Dublin or Shannon when visiting Clifden? I'll be relying in public transportation while there.
I am travelling to County Galway in May and will probably be taking a trip to up to the Clifden area. I've seen some great pictures taken from the sky road. Any sugestions for great places for scenic pictures in the area?
Hi! I'm heading to Ireland in November and am thinking of spending a night or two in Clifden. I'd really like to get out and do some walking or biking while I'm there (yup, I know-- it's November.) The guide books I've found all suggest walking either the lower or higher Sky Road. Has anyone done this? How strenuous of a walk is it? I'm a pretty avid walker, but I'm not very experienced when it comes to hiking and difficult terrain-- should I stick to the lower road? Lastly, should I be concerned about being alone in this area? I've travelled solo to cities before, but this is my first time venturing outside a metro area by myself. Any advice would be a big help!
