Dolphin Beach

All the best places to eat, shop and stay in Ireland. A local guide to local places.

“As I pulled into the lodge I breathed a sigh of relief, not just because we had made it, though that was not inconsequential, but because the house was attractive and the setting was gorgeous. Wraparound windows looked over gardens and a sheep pasture on the headland jutting into the sea. Our room was bright, spacious, uncluttered and had a great view. It was the retreat I had been dreaming about.”
Those are the words of Don Mankin – The Adventure Geezer – from his travel blog, and he echoes the thoughts of everyone who comes to stay at Dolphin Beach. Firstly, everyone finds driving the Sky Road to the house from Clifden a little scary – even wizened, experienced travellers who have been everywhere find it scary. Secondly, everyone arrives at the Foyle family’s gorgeous house and says to themselves: “This is the place I have been dreaming about”. It gets even better after that as Clodagh, Fearghus and Cavanagh Foyle look after you, as you enjoy this gorgeous house and its comforts, and the stunning views out across the bay. How long can we stay?
