General The Abbeyglen Castle is a small, exclusive 4 star hotel providing accommodation, cuisine and service, located on the Sky Road overlooking the sea and the Alpine-like village of Clifden, with a backdrop of the Twelve Bens. The Abbeyglen Castle was built in 1832 by John d'Arcy of Clifden Castle, 33 years before Mitchell Henry built Kylemore Abbey in 1865. D'Arcy, who founded Clifden in 1812, was considered a leader of the community and was frequently consulted by the local constabulary in time of trouble or unrest.
