A lovely hotel in a quiet lakefront location. Nice large rooms. Excellent food in the dining rooom , a lovely bar and nice common rooms. There was a slight problem with wifi(everyone clustered in the lobby) but otherwise it was great. Definitely worth staying at if you are at all in the vicinity

We stayed here with a number of teenagers and younger children. The location is superb. You will feel you have stepped into a painting with a stunning backdrop of dramatic mountain ranges and mirrored lakes. Far enough away to feel like a real break. Food delightful, staff relaxed and professional, rooms grand in size, edwardian in decor, and heavenly in... More

Unbelievable setting, gorgeous rooms, decent food. We stayed here as part of a cycling tour, and our first view of this stunning place was from our bikes. What a wonderful surprise way out in the Connemara countryside! At the end of a great day of cycling, we'd enjoy a pint on the front lawn, overlooking the lake. We had a... More

I confess to being a hotel snob and had low expectations for anything called a lodge that my husband wanted to go fish at. I was happily surprised by much I enjoyed my stay here. The rooms were very spacious, the food was excellent and the staff friendly. I would absolutely recommend a visit

We were a group of 7 and so enjoyed our stay, sitting by the fire in the sitting area's and enjoyed delicious meals and a drink in the pub. The... More

We spent 2 nights here in April, and made to feel like we were the only guests. Beautiful, relaxing and quiet property overlooking the lake. The meals were all first rate, with a pleasant bar to have a quiet Guinness or three.

on the return leg of our Connemara visit, our group stopped for what was scheduled as a light lunch, no such thing in the west of Ireland. Made to feel very welcome in the bar and then to the dining room. There was plenty of options for the starters, I had the fish followed by the chicken, excellent choice of... More

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are large and comfortable, the setting is beautiful and the service is top notch. We arrived late (after the kitchen closed) and they still put together a simple delicious dinner for us, with a pint of Guinness.
