Over the years, so many of the guests who come to stay with us have been very impressed with the quiet, natural surrounding of this part of the Clifden Area, Connemara, and time and again they ask us to show them where there are nice walks, interesting opportunities to get out into the unspoilt countryside. We have often thought how much we would like to join with them on these outings, to show off our local terrain, but this is not always practical for us.
It seemed a good idea, therefore, to find an effective means of sharing these Clifden area walks with our friends, and we asked Tom to put together a nice mixed selection in one easy-to-follow guide, to facilitate our guests in taking advantage of this amenity, which is so readily accessible from here in the Ardagh.
However long or short your stay with us, we do hope that you will find the time to try one or more; of the walks. Of course, if you have sampled our award-winning Ardagh Restaurant here in the Hotel, then a gentle walk next day in the Connemara air will spare your conscience. On the other hand, a good walk outing before you sample our Restaurant will entirely justify your decision – you will have earned it!
There are also some guided walks, based around the Clifden area, with archaeological, historical or general interest themes; if these are of interest, please ask for details at Reception.
lf there is anything at all we can do to make your Rambles in the Clifden Area more-enjoyable, please let us know. In this, as in all aspects of our welcome here, we want you to have the most enjoyable of visits to the Ardagh Hotel and Restaurant.
