This hotel is a luxurious 68-room converted country estate that was once owned by the poet Oliver St John Gogarty (among his better lines: ‘If anyone thinks that I amn’t divine, He gets no free drinks when I’m making the wine’).
With views of Twelve Bens Mountains and Rusheenduff Lake, the colourful bedrooms feature en suite bathrooms, tea and coffee facilities and satellite TV.
The Renvyle Restaurant serves a traditional Irish menu, featuring local produce and fresh fish. There is also a cosy bar and guest lounge, offering a selection of beverages and whiskies.
The 200 acres of private grounds include sandy beaches, lakes, scenic woodlands, a 9-hole golf course and tennis courts. There is also an outdoor swimming pool, croquet lawn and clay pigeon shooting facilities.
Set in a romantic period house, The Renvyle Hotel is located on the Connemara Loop. Surrounded by rugged coast and historical countryside, Connemara National Park is just 10 minutes’ drive away.
