“Great hotel in a spectacular location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

The location of this hotel is absolutely spectacular, overlooking the only fjord in Ireland. The views from our room were breathtaking. We arrived late at night and it was dark, and it was a real treat to wake up and open the curtains. It was like stepping into a Bronte sisters novel. The decor in the room was comfortable and clean, but it was basic. However, it was somehow part of the charm of this hotel. The staff made a real impression on us during our short stay; we found them to be attentive and focussed on ensuring needs were met. The food in the restaurant was really good also.

Room Tip: Our room (no 47) was overlooking the fjord. It was beautiful to wake up to the view in the morning.

Stayed in Leenane Hotel in mid September. The hotel was full of old world charm; coal fires burning in the lounge and bar, wholesome food that was very reasonably priced and served by highly trained staff. Our room overlooked the lake at Killarey Harbour with a backdrop of moutains and rolling hills. Our stay was magic; made all the more wonderful by the beautiful surroundings, ambience and bedroom that was well appointed in keeping with the style of the hotel. A thoroughly relaxing stay.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the lake; it is a wonderful sight to behold in the early morning and at su...

We have just returned from Leenane Hotel after yet another wonderful weekend. We have stayed there on many occasions and it NEVER fails to dissapoint. The staff are outstanding and so so friendly. We stayed in a fabulous room in the new section, sleep quality was wonderful. The food is to die for and we are already planning a return visit. Thanks to Conor and his wonderful staff, This hotel is the best kept secret in the West of Ireland.

Spent a great weekend in the Leenane Hotel. We got a special deal for 2 nights B+B + 2 dinners for 110 Euro each, We loved it all. The 5 course dinners were fabulous with friendly efficient staff . We loved the old world charm of this hotel, yes it is old and the furniture is dated but that's what makes it so special. Such a nice change from the hotel chains that have taken over most of the world's hotels. We had a lovely room with breathtaking harbour views , everything was very clean and the beds very comfortable with good bed linen. On Saturday night there was traditional music in the bar which we enjoyed. I don't know how anyone can criticise this place at the prices charged. It was full this weekend with visitors from all over Ireland and everyone seemed to love it. Another plus is a lovely peaceful night's sleep with no noise from outside or from the other - those thick walls keep out all sounds.
We plan to return again in the Spring

Room Tip: Ask for a harbour view room

We have just come back from The Leenane Hotel,The food, staff and views are some of the best I have encounterred We stayed a week and were looked after by very friendly staff, the meals were excellent; my wife is a ceoliac and was catered for perfectly; this is one hotel she can trust. We have stayed at The Leenane four times in the last five years and look forward to our next visit. If you want a relaxing stay in an area of natural beauty at a vey reasonal price look no further, they have two music nights a week. The hotel is situated close to all the local points of interest also a very nice sandy beach where we had a swim! whilst we were there we visited The Clifden festival another must music, poetry, art and much more

Room Tip: New wing over looking Killary Lough
