Ballynahinch Castle Hotel

Recess, Connemara, Co. Galway
aaicon Hotel 81 %

Nestled in a 450 acre estate of woodland and rivers in the heart of Connemara, Ballynahinch Castle is a warm and welcoming country house that is sure to impress. It has changed hands in recent years and has benefitted from a very tasteful renovation programme. Ownership may have changed, but many of the knowledgeable and hospitable management and staff are still in place.
Bedroom suites are in a traditional country house style, many with river views. There are a number of relaxing lounges, some real log fires, and an atmospheric Fisherman's Pub, offering high end lounge food throughout the day. Dinner in The Owenmore Restaurant is a highlight of a stay, featuring menus that reflect both the seasons and what is best from local producers.
