We stayed in the hotel on St. Patrick's Day, as well as the Sunday, and it was our second time staying in the hotel. I simply cannot say enough wonderful things about the hotel. The staff are incredibly friendly and cannot do enough to help you. The rooms are lovely and the food is simply divine. The setting in Connemara is breath-takiningly beautiful and there is no end of things to see and do in the vicinity of the hotel - including, for example, Kylemore Abbey. The roaring fires in many of their lounges is perfect for a romantic evening in.
Overall, if you stay anywhere in Connemara, it has to be here.
