The House:

Renvyle House Hotel & Resort is a 70-bedroom, family owned / family run hotel located on a 150-acre estate. It is an historic hotel on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way. Set amongst mountains, lake and sea, it has a private lake which has good stock of natural brown trout. We run a popular Fly-Fishing weekend each spring with world champions Jackie Coyne and Tom "Doc" Sullivan. Seashore fishing is possible on the beach outside our back door and Head Chef, Tim O'Sullivan, is always happy to cook your catch.

Renvyle has its own beach, beautiful gardens, woodlands and loads of leisure activities – outdoor heated swimming pool, Canadian outdoor hot-tub – with views over the Atlantic (both seasonal), croquet, 9-hole par 3 golf course, tennis, lawn bowls and many lovely walks in some of the freshest air in Europe!

It is known for its award-winning food, excellent service and friendly staff. Renvyle House is only 8 km from the Connemara National Park and 12 km from Kylemore Abbey and Victorian Walled Gardens.
