Had occasion to spend a few days in Leenane and was glad to have picked the Leenane Hotel.
Formerly an old coaching inn/ fishing lodge, it now caters for a wide variety of clients. During my stay there were quite a few lean, hardy types who were taking part in a local running/ swimming/ cycling marathon-type event. There was also a good mix of retirees and holiday makers from both Europe and the States.
My room, though compact, was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was a fairly standard buffet, though the smoked salmon with scrambled eggs was very welcome. The restaurant has a good reputation though I didn't eat there myself. There is a pleasant bar which serves a wide range of food, from snacks to full meals.
The rates at the hotel are extremely competitive and offer excellent value for money. The location is visually absolutely stunning and is ideal for those looking for somewhere as a base to 'do' Connemara, as well as being close to the pretty town of Westport and Croagh Patrick. The village of Leenane itself offers a couple of restaurants (The Blackberry is probably the best) and two traditional, welcoming pubs.
Hard to fault!
