“connemara's best kepy secret...Shhh!”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

We stayed here for 2 nights last August, and really cannot say enough about the place and the people who run it. The location is spectacular, and if you are into any outdoor sport there are multiple opportunities for fun. We biked and ran while we were there. There is an adventure centre down the road, as well as an award winning spa. The rooms are not as fancy as 5 star hotels, but are very spacious as was the bathroom. Rustic might be the term, we loved them. Dinner is at one long table, so you get to chat to other people and see what they have been up to. As well as a fabulous three course dinner by a French chef, they have wonderful canapes before dinner too! Yum! To stay here is a treat and a real getaway, with staff who really cannot do enough. We will be back.

Room Tip: The room downstairs overlooking the garden is particularly nice.

I have been going to Delphi for many years and felt that I needed to add to my previous review now that so much work has been undertaken.

Delphi is a PRIVATE HOUSE, it is run like one, it does not have a Bar Tender or Porters and Fishing is a BIG draw for some of the guests, all that said the work that has been done in the house, redecorating. new public rooms, new bathrooms all add to what was already an exceptional experience. The staff are wonderful and no effort is spared to ensure ALL GUESTS get the most out of their stay. Everyone whether they fish or not are made welcome and no effort is spared to accomodate guests requests.

What was already one of the most enjoyable private houses you could stay at has been greatly improved by all the work. Mick and Carole. the management team. are focused on improving all aspects of the Lodge and very aware that not all guests want to fish !

I will be back next year !

Room Tip: The Lake View Rooms are worth the extra BUT if you want an early night ask for one NOT OVER the loun...

I never write reviews but felt compelled to sperad the word on this most lovely and romantic country house in Ireland. My husband and I just returned from a 15 day trip to Ireland and staying @ the Delphi Lodge was definately the highlight! It's website does not do it justice. It's remote location made us feel like we were truely away yet it was accessible to many extrordinary sights. The accomodation was simple casual elegance, our room had a down sofa and fire place and huge king canopy bed that had the finest bedding and the renovated bathroom had a huge old bathtub for soaking. The food was absolutely spectacular! Most of all however were the people we met there - some of the lovelyest and unforgettable people who we will never forget. The staff and guests alike were extrodinary. I went and had a seaweed bath and scrub in the best spa down the road and my husband went fly fishing in their spectacular lake and river. The lodge itself and grounds are oozing w history. Many wonderful walks. Our only regret is that we didn't plan to stay a whole week.

During our stay in Ireland our friends who live in Galway suggested we visit one of there favourite getaways....Delphi Lodge.
We met up with another couple they know and off we went.
Simple words cannot describe the shear beauty of the Lodge.
The surrounding hills and the lake are enchanting.
The atmosphere, the people, the food and the wine were all top notch.
Sadly we heard that it was closing down.....I truly hope it's only for a short time.
We'll be back in Ireland again soon and I'll keep my fingers crossed Delphi is still there.

I was married here in October 2010 and it was absolutely incredible. The staff did everything possible to make us at home - roaring log fires ever morning; afternoon tea with homemade scones and cream; cooked breakfasts made to order for each of the 31 people - no mean feat! Wonderful food - absolutely faultless and great attention to detail. Canapes were outstanding and our friends are still talking about it. Lovely rooms and stunning lake views. Some of our group stayed in cottages and they were delightful - really well kitted out and fires set; instantly welcoming. We will be back for a house party without a doubt - I cannot recommend Delphi and Carole and the staff enough.

Room Tip: Any room with a lake view is gorgeous
