    “The best base for visiting Clifden area!”
    Honeysuckle lodge is a fabulous property, spacious and very nicely furnished with all the comforts; lots of space, lovely kitchen area, great bedrooms and bathrooms and a great area. Clifden is a nice town and there are so many great attractions in the area. Our landlady was very helpful and welcoming and gave us great tips on where to go. We felt it was excellent value for money and would highly recommend this property. Suits both families with younger kids and older vistors.
