4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012

We have stayed in Leenane Hotel 6 or 7 times now. Whilst it is not a modern hotel, this is part of its charm! We always ask for rooms now at the front of the hotel overlooking the Fjord. Food is always excellent - as a tip I would recommend booking half board for the best deal. We always stay with our four kids aged 15yrs down to 5yrs and they all enjoy it, the staff are very accomodating to them. The hotel is a great base for visiting Westport, Croagh Patrick, Clifden and Galway - the scenery is just beautiful. Well worth a visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room in the newly renovated section and at the front of the hotel:)

We went to this hotel for three nights half board and although the hotel is a bit dowdy we had a lovely time.
The food was excellent both in the morning and five course dinner's in the evening's were very good.
The staff were wonderful and very very helpful.
The hotel is situated in a great spot close to Kyle more Abbey and Ashford castle which were both worth visiting.
The only draw back was the weather it rained the whole time we were there except for a few hours on the Saturday but we didn't let it spoil our weekend

Arrived at the Leenane hotel at 6pm with no reservation. The only room available was a single room at the rear of the hotel with no view. The room was small but very clean. The furniture in the room has been their a good few years and could never be described as modern but does suit the style of the hotel.
Room rate offered was €40 including breakfast which in my opinion was very reasonable.
Decided to have dinner in the Bar instead of the restaurant but it is the same menu. Starter and main course were fantastic. Loved it. Breakfast was equally good the following morning. Check in was quick. Service in the bar was fast and the staff were very friendly especially the big guy behind the Bar. A perfect gentleman.
For someone who spends 18 weeks a year in international chain hotels this stay was a welcome and enjoyable change.
Would I stay again. Absolutely.

On a family holiday in August 2012 (2 adults, 3 kids - 11, 7 and 5), we had dinner in this lovely little hotel. The food was relatively good hotel fare, if a bit pricey. There was something for everyone, and plenty for the kids to do while they were waiting for the food to be served. I had a fantastic steak, my wife had fresh sea bass. The kids all found something to their liking. Service was efficient and very friendly. Our dinner location in what was probably an underused function room adjacent to the main dining room, was a bit soulless, but the friendly staff made up for this. We stayed on and had coffee in the very welcoming lounge afterwards, with its roaring fire and odd collection of furniture.

While we didn't stay in the hotel, we agreed that it would definitely be somewhere we would consider returning to in the future. It is in a great location, with spectacular views over Killary Harbour, and has great access to Connemara and all its beautiful beaches and attractions. At about 3 and a half hours from Dublin, it is just about in the range for a weekend break.

All-in-all a very pleasant experience.

Room Tip: Ask for a sea view!

We stayed in this hotel for the first time and thoroughly enjoyed our 3 nights b&b with 3 dinners. The staff were so pleasant and the atmosphere was so relaxed, just what we needed. The meals were lovely, very good selection for breakfast and the homemade brown bread was just delicious. We liked it so much we asked for the recipe, as did a number of other guests. We had a lovely room with a breathtaking view over Killary Harbour and the mountains. The only downside is there's no lift and we weren't offered any help with our luggage. I do hope some was offered to more elderly visitors. We look forward to our next visit to this lovely spot.

Room Tip: Rooms to the front of hotel have the view of the harbour.

Just back from a 2 night mid-week break at the Leenane Hotel, and it was a perfect choice. The location is beautiful, looking out over the water. Just a short walk (3 mins) into Leenane village, which is tiny, but has a couple of places to eat , a shop and a pub or two - what more could you want. The room was in the older part of the hotel, old fasnioned in decor, but spacious, clean and with that view from the window. Such a peaceful night's sleep. We ate one evening meal in the hotel as part of our deal, and it was more than generous. The most delicious steaks. And drinks afterwards in the resident's lounge, which is quite magical - huge room, with a fire at one end, and no end of cosy sofas and chairs to curl up in. No TV, just a computer with internet access, so it really is a most relaxing room. A few people playing cards, people reading, everyone speaking in hushed tones - loved it. Breakfast was excellent, a serve-yourself buffet, and the food just kept coming out of the kitchen. This is a great base for travelling about the area, and the staff were very helpful - we were able to buy a ticket for Kylemore Abbey in Reception at at discount. It really is a stunning part of the world - hope to return for longer next time and would stay here again.

Having been strongly recommended by a friend, my wife & I stayed for 3-night deal, B&B + dinner each night - and we enjoyed every minute, we'll be back for sure - seems a lot of their guests do so, and often ! Good value, food and wine excellent - we loved it so much that we had lunch in the bar every day as well. Staff & the brothers managing the hotel are friendly,attentive and helpful and are to be complimented. The location, of course, helps enormously as it is simply stunning - you just unwind from the first moment you look out from your bedroom window onto the stunning views over the Killary Fiord and the soaring hills surrounding - yes, relaxation it is ! See you there sometime !

Room Tip: No lifts, so ground or first floor, sea facing.
