The original plan was to stay here 1 night, if we have decided to stay 3 nights it's mainly for 2 reasons: Connemara is just incredible and this hotel is the perfect place to make return every night. First of all the owner: Stuart is a true genuine Irish man, he always pays attention to his customers and he made... More

A big thank you to Stuart & the rest of the team. We were made to feel extremely welcome from the minute we arrived. The hotel has a lovely authentic flair and has a real home from home feeling. Our dog Gina was made to feel super welcome. The rooms are gorgeous & not lacking in anything. The food is... More

Arrived to the hotel, at reception was offered help to carry my luggage and shown the room. The friendly member of staff, offered me a coffee/tea. The room had everything you need for a nice stay and the bar/sitting room downstairs is lovely with beautiful views.

This hotel has a lovely atmosphere which I attribute to Stuart and Rose and this year's summer students, Quentin, Brenda and Valentin. The views are of course, spectacular as you are in Connemara. After a long day of hiking on the Killary Fjord we appreciated the "drying room." By next morning our clothes and boots were ready to take on... More

If you're not looking for Waldorf Astoria luxury but if you are interested in a charming old-fashioned hotel with a welcoming and efficient staff, I'd be recommending the Kylemore Pass Hotel. Throw in the location and stunning views, and this hotel becomes a gem. We loved our too brief one night stay, and we hope to stay again in the... More

After spending a lovely afternoon at Kylemore Abbey, we decided to stop off for food at Kylemore Pass Hotel and Restaurant. It has its own character and is very clean but when asking for a kids menu as three of the family required one, we were given a bar menu where fish and chips cost €13.90, surprised at the cost,...

I ended up staying in the Kylemore Pass Hotel by default as Clifden, my planned destination for the night, was fully booked. The hotel is located in the proverbial 'middle of nowhere' and offers little other than a welcomed bed and bar food. On arrival, the hotel has an odd appearance; a kind of higgledy–piggledy lobby cum dining room filled... More
