Let the sun set on Connemara
Sundowners just aren’t the same without a sunset behind them, and preferably a sea. So pull up a chair, sit back and enjoy the display at the Ardagh, a boutique coastal hotel at the edge of Ardbear Bay, in the heart of Connemara. The views are spectacular and, like all seascapes, pretty much impervious to weather – the worse the weather the more dramatic the sea. The hotel is two miles from Clifden but most guests seem to like to book in and chill out, simply soaking up the panorama. It’s very relaxing and the food is great, with a suitable emphasis on fresh seafood. If you feel like swimming it’s a 10-minute drive from Dog’s Bay. Pay an extra tenner for a sea view room and leave your curtains open for the night – assuming you’re not on the ground floor that is. Overnight B&B stays from €82.50 pps midweek in June.
