This splendid 19th Century Georgian House was built in 1850. The charming Galway hotel is a former estate house for the landed gentry, who prized it for its serenity. Set amidst rambling woods and rolling lawns, it is truly a haven of peace and tranquillity. The 2-storey historical hotel comprises 13 rooms, a lobby, TV lounge, bar, breakfast room, dining room and car park. Guests can also take advantage of Internet access. Room and laundry service are available for an additional fee.
Set in 7 acres of woodland gardens in the magnificent wilderness of Connemara, the accommodation is only 22 km from Galway City on the N59 main Galway/Clifden road. The centre of Oughterard with its restaurants, bars/pubs, tourist attractions and shops is around 7 km from the hotel.
