Lonely Planet review
Positioned between Loughs Conn and Cullen, this family-run hotel gives you the feeling of being aboard a boat. Its genteel, champagne-coloured ‘Grace Kelly’ sitting room has some photographs of the actress who was a relative of the hotel’s owner. All 58 bedrooms are comfortable (try for one opening on to the panoramic timber deck), but you’re unlikely to spend much time in them given the activities on offer: cookery courses (€120 including lunch), painting classes (€95), a fishery school (from €95) and boat hire (with/without engine €40/60 per day; rod and waterproof hire available). Non-guests can also sign up.
