Is that Sting’s bass guitar I see before me, staring down from the wall in Ruth and Stuart Morgan’s B&B, Hillside House, just on the outskirts of Clifden, heading north on the WAW? Indeed it is, and Sting had the decency to autograph the guitar, a tribute to the regard in which Stuart Morgan is held as a guitar technician to rock and roll stars. You come to Hillside to enjoy the U2 room, or the Beatles’ room, and to revel in authentic, probably priceless rock ‘n’ roll memorabilia. But you also come to enjoy Ruth’s brilliant design and decorative flourishes, for Hillside is also a tribute to a hostess with great design skills. Put the two together and you have elements that make Hillside simply unique and, with Clifden just a few miles down the road, there are good choices for dinner.
