Nestled between Lough Corrib & Lough Mask in Connemara, an area renowned for its rugged beauty & unforgettable scenery. Our family has been welcoming visitors to Connemara for over half a century now. Fishermen, ramblers, cyclists and visitors from all over the world just love the laid-back atmosphere here. Our 20 en-suite bedrooms are large & comfortable & our food is superb. We are told we serve some the best Chowder, Seafood and Steaks in Connemara, not to mention the lively music and craic we serve in our bar.New to Fairhill House Hotel is our membership with the Irish Whiskey Trail. We now have 150 different whiskies on offer, including the first malt produced in Kentucky since 1919, Pearse Lyons whiskey... distilled by an Irishman of course! It is without a doubt one of the largest selections in the West of Ireland.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We recently stayed in this lovely hotel. From arrival we had a good feeling about it, friendly staff, very nice room, very clean and tidy. The bar area was really nice with a theme of fishing and angling to go with the area attractions. The food was lovely, well prepared and presented. The owner, Eddie, was very pleasant and sociable and made us feel very welcome. Breakfast was served in the back dining and function room, a very impressive place. Overall a thoroughly enjoyable stay.

Unusually my wife & I had a few days off at the same time just after Christmas so decided to make the most of it and head away for a few days. Choose Fairhill House as reviews were good and it was dog friendly - well that it is and in spades. Reception was empty when we arrived, but it is a small hotel and times are tough for the hospitality industry but there was a very nice lady in the adjacent bar who checked us in and gave us the run down for breakfast etc. The food we ate on the two nights was excellent with quite generous portions as well. They also allow well behaved dogs in the bar so it was really nice to have our little fellow with us for a few drinks as other residents and non residents did also. Lovely touch from the chef and the same lady serving us breakfast on the two days the cooked some rashers for us to take back to the dog with a bowl of water, small thing but a wonderful gesture. Room was fine, perhaps a little chilly, with a balcony which would have been lovely in better weather - but it is always nice to walk out and get some air. Bathroom again fine with a decent shower in the bath. Only small concern would be the walls are a little thin thankfully next door was quiet but soundproofing is not great. Adherence to Covid measures was strict with vaccination certs requested, frequent sanitation of public spaces and laminated menus and mask wearing. We really enjoyed our stay and it is quite certain we will be back as it is so nice to have the dog welcomed in a hotel rather than just tolerated (and even then by only a few hotels in the country). There are only a few like that and they all seem to be in the Galway / Connemara region oddly.

2 night stay recently in Fairhill House. Must say, very pleased with the experience. All 3 of us appreciated all that the staff did for us. The brown bread with breakfast was delicious. A big thanks to the chef. All the staff were friendly and welcoming to us including our dog! Frank and Gerry at reception were full of local knowledge. Will definitely return. Would have given 5 out of 5 but the disability room shower was not accessible for our friend. This was explained before we booked and we knew before we arrived, so we couldn't fault them for that and he had a wonderful two days in Fairhill House. Thanks to all.

Highly recommend a stop here. Great food. Wonderful service and very friendly staff. We walked from Cong to Clonbur and stopped here for lunch before the return leg. A fabulous home made burger, the nicest we've had in a very long time, home made chips which were delicious and a gorgeous blue cheese and pear salad. Couldn't recommend highly enough. We will definitely be back.

Top class services rooms clean, staff friendly, food outstanding and very good overall value for money. Staff couldn't do enough special touch to have the chef walk the floor at the end of service the menu is well designed something for all tastes and styles. Hotel strict on all covid restrictions to keep staff and guests safe. Will be back for sure
