Set a few miles back from the Connemara coast, Ballynahinch is a wonderful mix between a castle hotel and family-run hotel. With just 40 rooms, the property feels like a cozy estate and staff is able to provide a high level of attention and service to its guests. Rooms are decorated in the style of a country sporting estate with beautiful curtains and fabric headboards reflecting the warm tones of the Connemara landscape. The Castle is comprised of an original building and two riverside wings, which boast the best views over the river below.

The list of activities is so extensive that guests could stay on-property the duration of their stay without getting bored. Highlights include fly-fishing, shooting, cycling, nature walks and sea experiences. In addition, Connemara National Park is located just 30 minutes away, where guests can experience the region’s extensive bogs, grasslands and woodlands, as well as the Twelve Bens mountain range. The property has two dining experiences to choose from: a formal dining room and the Fisherman’s pub, which highlights the area’s local seafood.

Who Should Stay

Couples or families looking to stay in a luxurious hotel that can provide a coastal experience and fly-fishing. Those who need a spa should look elsewhere.
