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.

My son got married on December 10 and he and his lovely bride Lucy had their wedding reception in Renvyle House Hotel, it was amazing from start to finish, both families stayed the 3 nights of the weekend and we honestly could not fault the hotel in any way. It is in a really beautiful part of the country, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, the food was delicious. It has a really lovely relaxed atmosphere and is very child friendly. If you're looking for a really special, magical place to have your wedding reception or just want a weekend away, then this is THE place. Couldn't recommend it highly enough Collapse

Booked in for 3 nights with family. Arrived at 9pm after long drive. Fancied some bar food/snack. Told bar food finished at 8pm but the restaurant was open. I explained to bar man that we were and not that hungry for the full set menu(and the expensive price). He then went to ask someone if there was anything they could do. Came back with restaurant menu and said we could pick a soup and main course if we liked. Menu had no prices on it so we just ordered a chowder ( wasn't nice.too much flour) Afterwards he asked for our room number to put tab on it(still didn't know the price). Over next 3 days never once was offered a receipt at bar after ordering drinks. Ordered a bottle of wine with hotel label on the front. Not nice. U keep gettin the impression that once they get u through the door they want to rip u off, put it on the tab and then find out the price when checking out. Rooms are certainly not 4 star but match the character of the hotel. Reception area nice and cosy. The only thing that sells this hotel is the location and beauty of area. Also restaurant food very nice but at that price it would want to be. Think they need to spend more money on hotel and be more transparent with prices. Never stayed in a hotel that stops bar food at 8. Is this to try and force u into restaurant? Collapse

I visited Renvyle House Hotel for a wedding and stayed for 3 nights and this place has a lovely feel to it. The location is wonderfully remote with lovely views out to the sea. I was there in the middle of the wild winter but I can imagine it is great to visit during the summer for their pool and outdoor activities. Saying that, sat by the fire is just as lovely in the winter. The food is unexpectedly good with brilliant and varied breakfasts and the dinners are good too. If you’re looking to visit Connemara the location of this hotel is great – the driving and the walks nearby in the park and the local beaches are beautiful. Whilst some bits of the hotel may seem a little dated, the location, the staff and the value for money make up for it. Collapse

Renvyle House Hotel is remotely situated on the Connemara coast, north of the village of Letterfrack. This was my second stay at this hotel and nothing much has changed (including the bathroom in need of updating!). The hotel is not in the normal, run-of-the-mill, modern style; more of a character place which refuses to become a clone of the bright, shiny all-mod-cons establishments that we mostly frequent today. It advertises itself as a family friendly hotel, which indeed, it could be. I would imagine that children would be fairly unimpressed – but that is a subjective comment. The hotel reception area is composed of a small reception lounge, a larger reception room adjacent to this, a bar area and a conservatory – all close together. All but the bar area are furnished with soft seats and sofas warmed by burning turf fires. Of course the hotel is fully centrally heated, but the presence of the fires, not to mention the smell, create an ambience that modern hotel designers could not achieve! The bedroom was quite large and well-furnished including wardrobe, chest of drawers, dressing table, table and chairs, TV and tea/coffee facilities; a double and a single bed. A drawer-type hair dryer was provided – dinky would be the best description; ladies beware! No safe was provided. The room was well heated, but perhaps the centrally controlled heating could have come on a little earlier in the evening. The bathroom was adequate but definitely in need of updating. Lighting in the bedroom was good (some dodgy lamp shades); the bathroom lighting, again in need of updating. All facilities worked well, but I would suggest that a statically-clinging shower curtain is unacceptable today; shower panels please. The bathroom water supply was “Connemara Water”, which means it is brown or brackish. There is a note explaining this with an assurance as to its safety (bring a bottle of water!). Food is this hotel’s forté. Breakfast was very good indeed. Dinner was also very good, especially if you like eating fish. For those who prefer not to eat fish, the choice is quite limited, but still of a very good quality. As a coffee drinker, I ended up drinking tea! The brown beverage served as coffee was far below the minimum expected. The same coffee was provided from the bar as was provided in the restaurant. In common with nearly all good food restaurants, when it comes to deserts, don’t expect the same standard as the main course. Overall, the hotel could do with some updating and tweaking. The danger of making changes to this quite unique place is the risk of changing its undoubted character which is priceless! Would I go again – most definitely! Chill and de-stress!!! Collapse

Renvyle house is set amongst beautiful scenery in lovely Connemara and one could encounter ducks and chickens roaming about on the avenue up to the house. It's olde worlde and has great charm and attraction. My husband and I have stayed there a few times and always loved it. In winter you will step into a reception with a blazing log fire and very helpful staff there to greet you. We had a very spacious bedroom and comfortable surroundings and felt most relaxed there. The food in renvyle house is top class and their breakfasts are out of this world. Probably the best in lreland. Sabrina is so professional and accommodating . She goes out of her way to make one feel welcome. We will continue to go back to this wonderful place. Collapse
