Really lovely hotel with lovely care products in the bathroom. Bed very comfy and fine sized TV. Everything you would need is in the room. Breakfast was fab, had lovely pancakes for breakfast - highly recommended. Dinner from a vegetarian perspective was only let down. Foreign waitress seemed to insist that a soup was vegetarian even though it wasn't and... More

I stayed in the Lodge for a friends' wedding coming up to Christmas, and was sharing with three others in a quad (two double beds) room. In terms of the location, it's pretty good, situated close to the pretty and idilic village of Cong itself. It's about a 45 minute drive from Galway, and we found that the drive was... More

We had a weekend here in early December and definitely plan to return. Just about everything was perfect. The room was spacious and well maintained, very nice bathroom and the food in the bar was very good. We did have one minor glitch on the Friday evening but that was quickly and efficiently rectified. Overall, very highly recommended.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Suite was very comfortable - there was a separate living area with fire and an outdoor patio area, very nice. Staff were amazing, particularly Robert in the bar, who lent my husband his own golf clubs to play golf in Ashford Castle, the facilities of which the guests of the Lodge can use. Amazing... More
