Clifden is often called the Capital of Connemara because it is the largest town in Connemara, even though there are less than 2000 inhabitants living in the town. During summer many tourists come here while visiting Connemara. There are several B&Bs, pubs, cafés and gift shops.

I visited Clifden only for a day and night and that day I walked the Sky Road, a scenic road outside Clifden, and I also walked the road past the harbour to a small beach. It was the first of March when I visited so it was not tourist season.

    The castle looks lovely and you have some wonderful photos of the scenery here, despite the mixed weather

      It would have been nicer with blue sky and sun, but it was lovely anyway and I'm happy it didn't rain.

    Clifden Castle looks really picturesque. Too bad you couldn't get closer to it.

    That coffee shop looks like a living room.

    Lovely little page about Clifden here. I once visited this gem of the Connemara on a day trip from Galway, but this was about 15 yars ago.

      Thank you for visiting Holger! Yes, many people visit Connemara on a day trip from Galway, but I was happy stay a few days (one of them in Clifden).
