The combination of the taupe painted reclaimed boards which clad the walls, Connemara pure wool curtains (throughout the house) and oak smoked solid wood floors (throughout the house) together with a large open fire place create a sumptuous and warm space. Two large handmade sofas and an antique dining room table and chairs along with tastefully chosen other pieces put the finishing touches to this room. French doors lead from the dining section out into the outside patio (pea gravel) and barbecue area which has lovely garden furniture set consisting of a large round cast iron table and canopy and eight chairs- South facing - it catches the best of the sun.

*********************Clifden Town is the capital of Connemara one of the most scenic regions in Ireland. Established in the early 1800's at Clifden Bay, it follows the classic 19th century layout: oval in plan, with three principal streets – Market Street, Main Street and Bridge Street, a Market Square, a fine bridewell or gaol, courthouse and harbour.
Clifden today is a vibrant and cultural town which has retained its historic roots while offering a wide range of services and facilities. You will find colourful streets with a great selection of small local food shops – (fishmongers, butchers, fruit and vegetable store, delicatessens and a bakery), numerous craft and gift shops, art galleries and exhibitions and other interesting shops including antique shops, designer clothes shops, jewellery and vintage shops.
A wide selection of pubs and music sessions in Clifden
In between all of these you will find a great selection of restaurants, cafes and pubs. Most pubs in Clifden serve bar food and have live music weekly. On the practical side there are four supermarkets (including Aldi and Lidl), two banks, three chemists, two petrol stations, two churches and a post office.
For many, the allure of Connemara is in the ever-changing scenery, the magical light, walks on the beach, turf fires, the rugged landscape, wildlife and flora, the sense of history or a plate of fresh oysters and a pint of Guinness by the fire singing along to a local music session.****************************************************************************

The Western Ireland region
Connemara is world reknown for its stunning scenery. This coastal region has miles of beaches and fantastic walks. This is a great area to explore and is a great base for exploring the rest of the west from Clare to Sligo. Clifden is the capital and is located one hour from Galway city and forty minutes from Westport.
There are many local attractions aside from the stunning scenery and coast. Clifden town has a population of 1000 and has a great mix of shops, pubs, restaurants, theatre and small cinema. There are always events on in town from live traditional music, live bands, theatre shows, exhibitions, walking tours, pony fairs, local markets. Please see www.connemararentals.com,www.clifden.ie. We highly recommend Clifden Arts week in September for something special.

"very comfortable house and convenient the town"
we had a very nice stay in Clifden. The house was very well kept, and comfortable.we had spent a lot of our time in secluded rural areas of Ireland. So is very nice to be able to stroll downtown at our leisure. the peat burning stove was a very nice authentic touch

"Fabulous - better than home from home!"
This is such a great place to stay. The house is gorgeous and we felt at home immediately. It's very sociable with the kitchen being part of the main living area.
You are literally a few minutes walk down the hill to the town where there are loads of friendly places to eat and drink. The supermarket at the bottom of hill is good value and has lots of choice if you want to cook.
We went horseriding at nearby Errislannan Riding Centre and this is an amazing place. We booked once and went back every day!
The pool at the hotel is nice if you fancy that as well.
Owners are incredibly friendly and helpful. They own nearby Guys Bar which serves amazing food with live music and a great welcome.
Can't recommend it highly enough!

"Gorgeous house - perfect for a trip to Clifden and beyond"
My husband and I had our 2 little ones (5 & 1) together with family members had a fabulous time at the house. It's beautifully decorated and set back only 2 mins walk from the town. We had great fun on the tennis courts and loved basking in the sun at the outside table and chairs during what was super weather. The local beaches are great and Galway and Westport are both about an hour away. Shane greeted us and was very helpful with any questions we had. Would highly recommend, particularly as a characterful home from home.

"Sunnybank Lodge - Outstanding!!!"
We left Sunnybank Lodge only two days ago and we miss it already!
First off, our hosts were outstanding all along the way. Rachel kept us well informed during our planning stage; then, when we finally arrived, Eily greeted us warmly and Shane saw us off just the same. Gillian provided our first night's meal and it was simply incredible. (Nigella Lawson has nothing on her!!) Truly terrific hosts all around.
For comfort, cleanliness and convenience this house delivers! Upon our arrival we found the house to be immaculate and in perfect condition. We wanted for nothing, as it has every possible amenity. The hosts also know a thing or two about "details." Waiting for us was chilled wine, snacks, and there was even a nice stack of turf (peat) ready to comfort us after long days of touring and shopping. Being from "across the pond" the Wifi was especially helpful in keeping in touch with home. We had thoughts of spending a few nights in the local pubs but with a home like the Lodge we preferred to stay in to enjoy its comforts. We have rented a few vacation homes over the years, and although most never disappointed, they each fall a bit short when compared to what Sunnybank Lodge and its owners provide.
The house and the town are a perfect jump-off point for tours of the breathtaking countryside and coast. Even a full day's journey to/from the Cliffs of Moher was not so terrible when knowing what we had to look forward at the Cliffs - and - once we arrived "home". Being one block from the town center, the Lodge is ideally located for carting home purchases and groceries, or walking off a great meal. (Guys, Walshes and Mitchell's are highly recommended)
In short, the Lodge is a must-stay location and its owners know how to make a vacation home something special. Well done!
