Just back from yet another great stay at Fairhill House. Its been a while, but as always well worth it. Im surprised by some of the recent negative reviews, as I have always found Fairhill to be a little gem.

We had a very disappointing experience for our visit to the West of Ireland. We went to this part of the West on a recommendation from friends who have been a number of times in the past few years. My meal in this restaurant was bland to say the least, it was just so ordinary, and while my husband didn't... More

Anywhere west of Galway, whilst very welcoming and clean, can be a bit rustic for the normal traveller, but Fairhill House is simply a class above. Its spotlessly clean, run by fantastic helpful and obliging staff and the craic in the evenings is hard to describe. The boss, Eddie, is also a delight and could not be more accomodating. Our...

I ordered Irish stew.....there were only a few pieces of shredded meat accompanied by mashed potatoes and uncooked boiled potatoes bathed in non description juice, I did enjoy the few carrots and onions. Would not recommend this place. Others had fish and chips which was quite good.

Thank you for taking time to review Eddies Bar. It is unfortunate you did not enjoy your "Irish Stew" as this is a local dish and very popular having received several good reviews on this site. The fish & chips is very good and also very popular. Hopefully you will return and try it. More

Grand, cosy, welcoming bar, great atmosphere, witty and convivial staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We have been coming here for years and years. Food is tasty and plentiful, generous proportions, served well and attentively. Really enjoyed relaxing here over a glass of wine. We would highly recommend this bar/restaurant . You will be looked after. Enjoy

Stayed here last week. Good food and good staff. Smallish bedroom, allegedly a double, but far too small for two people. No chair or stool to write on or check the laptop. The bar area is far too cramped. The rubbish outside the hotel to the car park at the rear was disgraceful.

We had a family meal at Fairhill House Hotel in April. The service was chaotic as the hotel was understaffed. We ordered bottle of white wine and when it arrived, it was warm.

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. ... more   less
