Renvyle House opened as a hotel in 1883. It is an historic country house hotel, situated on the Wild Atlantic Way in the wild splendour of Connemara on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel is located on 150 acres which include a private lake, a 9-hole golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens and numerous activities on site. It is an award winning hotel for hospitality over the years with a warm welcome for every guest, delicious food and comfortable bedrooms. Some of the leisure facilities you will find on the grounds of Renvyle House Hotel include free golf, free tennis, free swimming pool, free boating and canoeing, free fly-fishing, free snooker, free croquet, clay pigeon shooting (charge per guest), gardens, woodlands & more.
Renvyle House was rebuilt in the Arts & Crafts style of the 1920's after the Irish Civil War. It is considered a building of architectural importance and, it has been the ethos of Renvyle's owners over the last few decades, to source bedroom furnishings designed and made in Ireland in keeping with the movement. The bedrooms vary in size and style but all in keeping with the features of the historic house. The characteristics are simple, clean lines and the use of solid Irish oak and furniture are apparent throughout. The fabrics and furnishings are, as much as possible, made and woven by skilled local craftsmen.
The hotel restaurant features a wide range of Irish and Continental cuisine. Irish beef, Connemara lamb and game dishes feature alongside seafood dishes using fresh fish caught daily off our shores. The wine list is extensive and offers a selection from the best European vineyards complemented by a wide selection of "New World" wines. The ambiance is relaxed with open fires, friendly efficient service and all complemented by Count John McCormack's concert Steinway.

I just spent a week in one of the cottages on the property of Renvyle House. The Cottage is rather disappointing. There is a general sense of disuse throughout.... Immediate stale and noxious smell of mold permeated the place. All the furniture and fittings were old, ratty and unattractive. None of the linens matched and were also old and spare. The clothes washer and dryer took forever and did a poor job of cleaning and drying. The steam room does not work and was not fixed although we asked several times. The heating system is electric, not radiant floor as is listed on website.There is no internet available and very very limited cell phone service.,etc., etc. On the plus side: The rooms are comfortable size. The fireplace is delightful. The kitchen is properly equipt. It was nice to have 2 full bathrooms.There is plenty of hot water. The views are spectacular. (Although there were 2 huge excavator earth moving machines on the golf course which didn't move at all during our stay,) It is well located on the grounds and easy picturesque stroll to the hotel. The Hotel itself is nice. Nothing special, just nice. It too has a feeling of rundown disuse. The furniture and fittings are old and tired, More like thrift shop finds than well used and loved antiques. The general decor is dated. The library is moldy and without any collection or character. The dining room is the bright spot. It is nicely furnished, and has some nice art. Excellent meals! The solarium is also comfortable and vibrant, a nice place to relax. The pub also lacks character and has all the shortcomings of the hotel but is populated by fun and interesting people. We enjoyed music one night and ate and drank there several times. The grounds are extensive. The walking paths are excellent. The lake is beautiful and well stocked. There is a nice casting lawn for fly casting instruction/ practice. The tennis courts are old and covered in moss. The pool complex is just tacky as is the hot tub. The golf course is picturesque but laughable (More weeds on the greens than bentgrass, entirely horrible maintenance) The gardens have some interesting elements but suffer from poor layout and especially poor maintenance. Individuals on the staff are excellent. Ronnie the GM is a real gentleman. Desk staff are polite and helpful. Waitstaff could be better. One barmaid ruined an evening at the pub by her misinformation, poor attitude and hostile personality. This hotel is trying to offer too much of everything and has no focus of excellence. Nothing about it excels beyond the bourgeois. Collapse

So, hubby and I opted for this place for our wedding anniv, after much consideration. You need a bit of luxury after 10 years... The location, its proximity to the national park, the good things we've heard all convinced us to book a 2 night stay. Now before I launch into why I've given it 2 stars, there are very good things about this hotel: its dog-friendliness, the art on its walls, the cosy communal areas, its beach and ample parking, but for the life of me I do not know how it merits its four stars. For starters, our room, which had a bleak view of a carpark and was opposite the cleaners' closet (much noise outside from early morning) had the most boring decor I've seen in a hotel room since a stay in a soulless hotel chain close to a major airport a while back: awful tartan curtains, cheap-looking furniture, toiletries attached to the wall, not the individual upmarket toiletries you'd expect in a 4* establishment. Breakfast was another letdown. Morning #1 I ordered the veggie breakfast. Now, just because I order veg food does not mean I eat like a bird, but for the first meal of the day I was offered a couple of tbsps of fried mushrooms, the tiniest potato cake I have ever seen, a ramekin of scrambled egg and the obligatory underdone tomato. Gasp. Not happy. Morning #2 I upped the ante and went for the French toast, and what did I get but two slices of sliced white pan cut diagonally. I love French toast, but what I expect is two thick slices of suitable, e.g.: sourdough bread. I know Ireland has been through the ringer in the past few years, but if you are a 4* hotel you need to reward your customers for the money they're paying, and not lash them with this scrimping attitude to everything. We're keeping you in business! I left nearly half a grand lighter of pocket, and felt robbed. Collapse

We spent three relaxing days in this historic country house hotel. Service and food were excellent and we had a spacious suite of rooms. The seafront location was amazing and we enjoyed some lovely walks. We enjoyed the swimming-pool and the hot-tub but the weather wasnt good enough for a trip on the lake. We appreciated the peat fires and the scenery and particularly the pre-dinner theatrical performance about Joyce. The surrounding countryside was well worth exploring. Collapse
Decidedly Average except for prices.

I don't understand the hype and endless 5 star reviews. Our room was slightly better than a travelodge yet the prices were 4 star. No wifi accessible in our room and the water was browny yellow from the taps. At 85 euros (Per Person!) per night and after staying in a far superior hotel for considerably less in Dublin recently we found this place really underwhelming. The food was ok, staff were nice and the surrounding area is very beautiful. That doesn't justify the poor value for money. Collapse

Renvyle house is like stepping back in time and one could easily cast a negative judgement given the 'time stood still' decor and feel. However don't let you first impression linger as you will soon discover first in class customer service and dining. To give you an example of customer service Linda at reception saved me from social exclusion when she brought in toothpaste from her home as I forgot mine - this home away from home feel grew on me very quickly and is very fitting with the spectacular rural countryside that surrounds you. Great place to visit. Collapse
