This is a modern hotel set around the old Clifden Railway Station in Galway. More than 70


years ago the last Steam Train departed from Clifden to Galway. Today the Railway Station, its Station House Platform and Engine House have been magnificently restored and transformed into The Clifden Station House Hotel and Courtyard. Clifden Station House Hotel combines old brick and native oak, with quintessential Irish hospitality and all the facilities of a new International standard hotel. The welcome is typically Irish and the location set amongst the glorious mountains makes it a truly remarkable place.
