We were very pleasantly surprised when we arrived at the anglers return b&b. The entire house was full of character and warmth. Every nook and cranny was immaculately clean. The B&B owner Lynn was extremely welcoming and friendly. Her home made muesli and brown bread was better than any hotel breakfast. The drive to roundstone town is about 10 minutes... More

We stayed here recently and loved it from the minute we stepped inside. Lynn, the owner, was so welcoming and helpful. She couldn't do enough for us and made us feel instantly at home. We were able to come and go as we pleased and the B&B was just 2 miles from the beautiful village, Roundstone where we went for... More

This was supposed to be a one night stand on a tour of Ireland, but my friend and I fell in love with the house, the area and the owner and ended up staying for the rest of our visit. Why drive around looking for the perfect place when you've already found it? I do regret not seeing more of... More

I stayed here over the New Year and had the most amazing, beautiful time. The Anglers Return is set in beautiful Irish countryside with a view at the front over a lake which is visible from front facing rooms. The interiors of the house are so beautifully done, totally in keeping with the style of the huge stone farmhouse -... More

I had the pleasure of staying at the Anglers Return over the Christmas period with a few friends. The house itself is beautifully charming: gorgeous views of the neighbouring lake and Connemara countryside, roaring fires and wood-burners, lovely furniture and gorgeously decorated. Everything about our stay there was cosy, warm and great fun. What makes the Anglers Return so great... More

This is a one-in-a-million place to stay..... I'm just home after 3 days in the Anglers Return and have to put the experience on the record! A beautiful period lodge, full of character, lovely unique furniture, log fires and stoves and a very warm welcome from proprietor Lynn. I was given a choice of 3 bedrooms. All were elegant as...

This has been my favourite place to stay for many years, and this year was no exception. This is for people who want a genuine experience of real Ireland, not just another hotel or generic B&B. I count this as one of the most beautiful houses and gardens in Ireland; the proprietress has an eye for beauty and style of... More

I am very sad and upset that someone has had such a bad experience here, when I have always worked hard to make guests welcome, comfortable and happy. It matters so much to me - this lovely old period house is my life's work and love, and I want nothing more than to see others enjoy it - I take... More

My family have been coming to Connemara for more than ten years and this was our second time staying here and we'll be back again. Great food, lovely room and a wonderful welcome. A must for anyone visiting this part of the country who likes something special.

We want to keep this one a secret ! We don't want the entire world to know how beautiful this place is, it's only for special people ! We spent 5 idyllic nights here and it was superb. The breakfasts were amazing, the beds blissful, you could even hear the gentle plop of trout biting in the river opposite (... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled at the foot of Derradda Hill, overlooking the famous Ballynahinch River, The Anglers Return was built in the 1800s as a sporting lodge and is now the home of Lynn Hill and her family. The house is a wonderfully peaceful guesthouse enhanced by the log fires and beautiful gardens. Outside, the grounds are highlighted by a profusion of flowers, stone walls, beautiful river views and garden paths. Awarded as one of Bridgestone's "Top 10 Places to Get Away From it All" in 2011, The Anglers Return is a peaceful retreat to rest, relax and enjoy the west of Ireland. Roundstone, a lively picturesque fishing village, with many good restaurants, pubs, traditional irish music, craft shops and galleries, is only 7 minutes away, south-west along the coast road. With wonderful beaches, the coastal area is a delight. Recommended by "McKennas Guides, 100 Best in Ireland", "Alastair Sawday's Special Places" and "Georgina Campbell's Ireland" ... more   less
