More than met our expectations.

My sister and I decided to fulfill our Mom's dream and take her to Ireland. She wanted a taste of the old Ireland and to meet the Irish people. And Cleggan delivered big time. King Cottage was exactly as the ad described it. The fireplace and the view from the patio doors was so relaxing. The sound of the ocean and watching boats leave and enter the harbour took her back to her youth in Newfoundland. Even though Cleggan is a small town it is a busy little hub because it is a ferry point for the island of Inishbofin. It has four friendly pubs and you can get wifi at Olivers. Try the Fish and Chips Takeaway and Restaurant if you want fish and chips.. It beats either restaurant. Chips are very white in Ireland but you can always ask to have them browned. We never met the owner of Kings Cottage but his brother John King and wife Theresa were amazing hosts. From fresh fish delivered to a longliner ride we were made to feel very at home. There were any number of day trips from Cleggan. We took the bus to Galway for the day. Clifden is only 11 km away and is a wonderful place to eat and shop. I get homesick when I look at the pictures. I highly recommend this area of Ireland and King Cottage. And Western Kingfisher Sea Angling run by John King guarantees a great trip on the ocean.
