Clifden Town is the Capital of Connemara one of the most scenic regions in Connemara. Established in the early 1800’s at Clifden Bay, it follows the classic 19th century layout: oval in plan, with three principal streets - Market Street, Main Street and Bridge Street, a Market Square, a courthouse and harbour. Clifden today is a vibrant and cultural town which has retained its historic roots while developing in services and facilities. You will find colourful streets with a great selection of small local food shops – (fishmongers, butchers, fruit and vegetable store, delicatessens and a bakery), numerous craft and gift shops, art galleries and exhibitions and other interesting shops including antique shops, designer clothes shops, jewellery and vintage shops. In between all of these you will find a great selection of Restaurants, Cafes and Pubs. Most pubs in Clifden serve food and have live music weekly. On the practical side there are three supermarkets (including Aldi and Lidl), two banks, two chemists, two petrol stations, two churches and a post office. For many, the allure of Connemara is in the ever changing scenery, the magical light, walks on the beach, turf fires, the rugged landscape, wild life and flora, the sense of history or a plate of fresh oysters and a pint of Guinness by the fire singing along to a local music session.
