We recently spent a weekend at Renvyle house (we have been here before and could not wait to come back). It turned out that there was a Murder Mystery weekend on here and we were not quite sure whether we would enjoy it or not...turned out to be one of the best weekends ever- it was absolutely great craic, the actors were marvellous, and we really enjoyed every minute of it. The events only actually take place in the bar at night-time so it's not like you are tied down for the whole weekened- you can do your own thing all day. It was also pretty nice to get to know other guests- usually on a weekend away you never get friendly with other guests (or maybe that is just me!) but the shared interest of solving clues meant a shared pint or two in the bar!
We had an upgrade on our room- it was one of the island suites- which was fantastic- and especially so if you were bring family, as there are two bedrooms and a separate living room and an enormous bathroom with jacuzzi bath.
As ever the food is fabulous- more restaurant qualilty than usually found in a hotel- worth a trip for the food alone.
The main thing about Renvyle however, is the real sense of getting away from it all- batteries are fully recharged. The lobby is very relaxing- turf fires and newspapers- and no one hounding you to keep buying food or drink... you can just sit there and while the time away.
There are more luxurious hotels to be found, without a doubt, but few will leave you as relaxed and happy as Renvyle.
- 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
