“Great food”
Reviewed March 13, 2013

Been here a couple of times for dinner with friends and cannot fault neither the food nor the service. Had a friend's leaving do in the Sailor's Bar here and it was brilliant, plenty to choose from on the menu and so tasty. One in our group is a coeliac and the had no problem accommodating her dietary needs.
They had an Indian themed night on last summer and the food there made me wish for a bigger stomach! Amazingly tasty and authentic, just fabulous. It's a lovely spot for a nice relaxing dinner with friends and a few drinks afterwards. Highly recommended!

We stayed only one night, more than a year ago (July 2011). We had enough of the expensive hotels, without any character, felt disappointed each time... So we tried the Kylemore Pass Hotel. The atmosphere was very nice, so enjoyable, nice jazz-music, room in nice colours with lots of stuff that made us feel welcome. Bathroom was very small, but everything was provided and it was clean. We slept very good and peaceful - because of the relaxing atmosphere I guess. Breakfast was very good, too. Everything we needed was provided and served with a smile.
More than a year after we were there, I still think of it with a smile. Thank you for making us feel so welcome.

Stopped off here on Saturday evening of August Bank Holiday weekend for dinner. 3 of us, each had different main course and all 3 were bad. The "breast of chicken" was not cooked and was pink in the middle. We said this to the waiter/barman, who changed it, but it was a piece of processed chciken in breadcrumbs rather than breast of chicken. The fish and chips was the best of a bad lot but chips were not good and the side salad was limp and un appetising. The lamb stew we had was also obviously frozen as the meat was solid and could not be eaten. We left a lot of the meals on the plate. We were not asked were we happy. Got the impression they knew we were not but they were afriad to ask. They dropped the chciken off the bill but did not even present us with a bill so we only found out when we asked to see the bill and they had taken it off. The waiter/barman seemed like the son of the owner and was pleasant. The owner if it was him came in while we were in the middle of our meal. But his only contribution was a glance on passing and to check if his son knew what he was doing when we were paying by visa card.
The location of the Kylemore Pass is lovely, great views, and it is a lovely place for a drink, but based on our experience, all agreed it was the worst meal we had in years, we would advise against any food here.

While en route to Westport from Galway my wife and I stopped for lunch here. We each had a sandwich and coke. The bill came to €16.50????? The sandwiches were €4.50 each for for two fillings and an extra €1 to have one toasted. There was no salad garnish - unless you call half a tomato a garnish. At a time when hotels claim to be struggling, surely offering value for money is a must. We won't be visiting here again. On the plus side, the staff were friendly and it was very clean.

After spending the day at Kylemore Abbey, we ducked into the Kylemore Pass Hotel to escape the weather. We were so happy they had food and a bar so we didn't have to head back out. We enjoyed everything about the hotel.

We spent four days here and enjoyed every moment. Great staff, helpful and forthcoming with advice, tips and very welcoming. Perfectly situated and with stunning views if the weather is nice! It is a perfect base for exploring the Connemara region and the hotel/restaurant seems to be a good local attraction.

I thought this hotel was quite strange. There was so much clutter everywhere and it gave me the creeps. The lighting in our bedroom was very poor. It was very clean though. The bar was very dark and - like the rest of the hotel - it was packed with stuff. The meal we had in the bar was poor and definately not worth the price. Breakfast was very good.The views from the hotel are lovely but the location is remote. I think this hotel is best suited to hill walkers rather than tourists although it is near Kylemore Abbey which is tremendous. I wouldn't stay here again.
