“Real value!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

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!

Wonderful hotel, comfortable king sized bed, large wet-room ( we were in room 2, ground floor) , patio door to outside, hospitable staff, fantastic food, beautiful dining rooms, a cosy bar and large lounge with open fire, great scenery and a great cruise on Killary Fjord. What more could you ask for? There was also live music on over the weekend though the sound proofing must be pretty good as we did'nt hear anything in our room! We used the hotel as a base to tour around and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. Would recommend the hotel to anyone wanting a mix of peace and quiet with beautiful views .

Room Tip: All four ground floor rooms are suitable for the disabled, plenty of room for a wheelchair in both t...

Stumbled on this gem, after a long day's drive. It was excellent value for money, with comfortable rooms, very friendly and helpful staff, as well as a great location with lovely views. Highly recommended

This has to be tbe most atmospheric hotel on the planet.
It is in a stunning location besides Ireland's only fiord and is a classic coyntry hotel with excellent food and friendly staff.
Aileen who booked us in couldnt have been more helpful in letting us choose our rooms. The lovely guest lounge with fire came as a bonus with local Irish singers .

After a day driving around Galway, we arrived here for the seaweed baths, we had booked in advance and we werent disappointed, one hour of lovely hot seawater and the seaweed soothing away our aches and pains, and then afterwards into the bar for a spot of dinner. Portions were generous and the staff were so friendly.

I havent stayed here, but based on my experience I would definitely be back to stay.

This is an Irish family hotel and not like your usual international "which city is this" experience! Set in a stunning location in a tiny village on the edge of a Fjord at the end of a magnificent drive through Connemara this is a place well worth visiting. The hotel is homely rather than sophisticated and the staff are warm and friendly. The dining room serves excellent food and wine and a very generous and varied buffet breakfast. We felt it was very good value and would like to stay longer next time.

Most of the rooms in this hotel have wonderful lake views, just make sure the grumpy receptionist with her head over her mobile phone doesn't put you in a tiny one looking out over the dustbins at the back!

Room Tip: Insist on a lake view
