Just back from a few days break in Renvyle. Turned out to be more than I expected! We travelled as a group of six - three couples and we were looking for some R&R. That is exactly what we got. Because you are not near a big town we were not tempted with shops. Instead we took in some walks by the beach and the golf course. We chatted with the locals and got some history of the area.
We visited Kylemore Abbey on one of our short trips and took the tour of the open rooms. Got the history of the abbey and visited the Gothic Church and the walled gardens. What a super place to spend the day
We also visited Letterfrack and saw first hand the boys graveyard ...... children who had been in the industrial school and died while in the care of the brothers there. We had heard all the stories on radio/television and the newspapers but seeing it first hand really makes it real.
After our outings we returned to the hotel each day and dinner!!! Now that was a treat and I can understand why the hotel has won so many awards. The menu changed each day while we were there and the biggest problem we had was in choosing.
Clearly the staff help to make this hotel and our visit so memorable. Every person we came in contact with from the front desk, the bar, the restaurant and housekeeping were friendly and welcoming.
The weather was also kind to us. Friday was the only bad day but we were leaving so didn't mind too much!!! Will definitely be going back again.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Renvyle House is a four star, historic country house, family owned and family run. It first opened as a hotel in 1883 and is spectacularly located on a 150 acre estate on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way (midway point of the longest car touring route in the world!). Renvyle House is known for it’s “air of otherwordliness” which we believe is a strong and unique selling point and something of which we are very proud. Our emphasis is on customer service “friendly combined with professional” and we believe this plays a large part in why Renvyle enjoys over 55% repeat business. The hotel resort grounds include a private lake, a par 3 golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens and numerous activities on site including tennis, croquet, outdoor heated swimming pool & Canadia Hot Tub which overlokks the Atlantic (summer months), fly-fishing, canoeing and more. Renvyle House is also well known for it’s good food and this is as much due to the locally sourced fresh produce (lamb, fish, vegetables and herbs from our own garden) as to Tim O’Sullivan’s expertise in the kitchen (Tim is our award winning Executive Chef). Renvyle House always has a warm welcome guaranteed for every guest. ... more less
