2006 Award Winners GUESTHOUSE OF THE YEAR 2006
The Quay House
Next we move to Connemara, and Clifden's oldest house, which is right on the harbour, with pretty water views when the tide is in. It is superbly comfortable and run with exceptional warmth and generosity by Paddy & Julia Foyle, who are renowned for their sheer style...airy, wittily decorated and sumptuously furnished rooms include not only two wheelchair-friendly rooms, but also seven newer studio rooms, with little kitchens, and balconies overlooking the harbour. Consistently excellent service is a also feature of this fine house, and their renowned breakfasts - which include a tempting buffet as well as a delectable range of hot dishes and home bakes straight from the Aga - are served in a charming conservatory, decorated with a collection of silver domes and trailing Virginia creeper criss-crossing the room on string. The Quay House is a very worthy of two titles this year: Guesthouse of the Year and the National Winner of our Irish Breakfast Awards
