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 husband and I have just returned from another wonderful holiday in Renvyle House Hotel, Connemara. We have stayed in Renvyle House many times during the past few years and on each occasion have found the welcome, food and service second to none. We would highly recommend Renvyle House as a place to stay, with excellent food, while visiting Connemara. Collapse

Room was very comfortable .pillows were some of the best I have found in any hotel.Good quality sleep was had by both of us .Breakfast was good . The actual outside of hotel itself Needs a little tidy and trim but I'm sure as spring goes on outside work will be done Collapse

Two night break in November? You don't go for the weather, just the scenery, the good food and the smell of a turf fire. Renvyle house has all three and the room we had in the newer wing was satisfactory. We had dinner in the old style restaurant. We started with the crabmeat with spring onion with the latter completely dominating the union.Next we had roast pepper and tomato soup which was good. We then were served, compliments of the chef, a single scallop, which tasted amazing. Unfortunately that was the highlight, as the main course of Guinea fowl stuffed with sausage meat was very poor. The meat was dry and lacked flavour and overpowered by the strongly herbal flavoured stuffing. My partner's vegetable curry was very good and the creme brulee and capuchino were good too. Overall disappointing.I had a nice seafood platter and a juicy steak in the bar the following evening. Much better. The breakfast was excellent except the juice was the concentrate variety. Surely 4 star deserves fresh juice. The staff were pleasant and allowed us an early buffet breakfast as we had to leave at 8.00am. to get to Dublin by 12.00. Collapse

If you like majestic, ornate entry ways, cavernous rooms with marble floors and granite bathrooms, don't come to Renvyle House. If pendulous chandeliers and overstated Celtic tiger decor is your thing, stay at home. Come to Renvyle House if you like peace and actual quiet. Engage with smiley faced staff and relish smells of ocean and turf fire. If dark wood panelling, old fashioned architrave and furnishings isn't your thing, don't come to Renvyle house. The home of Oliver St. John Gogarty is proudly stuck in a time warp but in a most endearing way. Well behaved pets are welcome with advance booking. The food is excellent, local amenities varied, the scenery breathtaking. This review can be summed up with signage from the bathrooms. 'You will find the bathing water has a natural turf/peat colour. This is due to the nature of the countryside, and is in no way harmful. In fact the Connemara water is extremely soft and very beneficial to the skin.' A stay in Renvyle house is also beneficial to the mind, heart and soul. Collapse
