The Rock Glen Hotel is situated on Ardbear Bay, just south of Clifden, on the west coast of Ireland. Originally built in 1815 as a hunting lodge, the Hotel has an unrivalled view of the Twelve Bens mountain range as you look over Ardbear Bay - the perfect location to get away from it all.

The 27 bedrooms all have facilities en-suite, 14 of which are on the ground floor. Each room has a TV, radio, trouser press, hair-dryer and direct dial telephone.

Lounge & Piano Bar At the end of a hard day's leisure, come in to the hotel bar where plump armchairs outnumber bar stools and a turf fire glows all year round.

A typical menu enjoyed by our residents and is an example of the mouth-watering cuisine available all year round in our Restaurant.

From the idyllic setting of the Rock Glen you can explore the many sandy beaches nearby, at Mannin Bay or Ballyconneely. Or why not take a trip to nearby Roundstone village, passing by the historic landing site of Alcock & Brown and, nearer the village itself, beautiful Dog's Bay


If you're a golfing enthusiast you'll be delighted to hear that the spectacular setting of the Connemara Golf Club, an 18 hole championship course, is only a 15-minute drive from the Hotel.

Connemara is perfect for hillwalking, and for river, lake and sea-fishing. If you want to go pony-trekking (Connemara is famous for its ponies), they can arrange it for you.

They have a full-size snooker table, as well as an all-weather tennis court and croquet lawn for your pleasure. They can even arrange clay-pigeon shooting on request.
