The castle, the staff, the grounds were all amazing! Each of the 5 couples on our group was able to secure a fan that helped us deal with the heat (no air conditioning), but you can’t blame the hotel for the highly unusual weather! The...More

Scenic property with a lot of history and character. Very good service and food at the bar room. Opportunity for a nice walk on the property. Plenty of rivers and lakes for fishing. Would like to come back and stay.

Sadly we only had a couple days here which is not enough to enjoy all the beauty this place has to offer. From arrival the staff are friendly and welcoming, yet very professional. The grounds and gardens are just divine, the rooms are fabulous and...More

We had one night here which was enjoyable and pretty comfortable, other than the heat. There's no air conditioning but thankfully you can open the windows and they gave us a fan. It's a real old world type of place, where the fishetmen and hunters/gentry...More

Dear Jodagayton, thank you for a truly delightful review. We are so pleased you took the time to explore the grounds and your sunset walk around the estate sounded wonderful. You are right to cover up as those pesky midges that can swarm at this...More

Description
Luxury 4 star hotel located on a 700 acre estate with 48 bedrooms & suites overlooking the river, mountain or both. The Fisherman's pub serves lunch and dinner by the open log fire, dinner is also served in the ...More award winning Owenmore Restaurant. On site, miles of scenic river & lakeside walks, bicycles to explore the area, fly fishing and clay shooting. Locally we have a boat trip from Roundstone fishing village which includes a trip to a deserted island & lobster fishing and great hiking. Connemara National Park, Connemara Golf Club and Clifden are all a short drive as is the ferry & airport to the Aran Islands. Ballynahinch Castle is the ideal base for touring Connemara and the Wild Atlantic Way. Less

Dear Heath, thank you for getting in contact. How far in advance you need to make a reservation depends on our availability; the summer months do tend to be busier than the winter months. The best option is to keep an eye on... More
