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 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
Hotel with character!

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

An oasis of character away from the tacky plasticated villages and ugly bungalows that spoil beautiful Connemara, Renvyle house is a welcome relief. Wonderful staff of all different hues, languages,countries of origin. Terrific food served in a 1950/60 style dinning room,the style suits the hotel. Renvyle was rebuilt sometime in the 20ies so lots of 'Art Decor' touches. Renvyle house has everything going for it,but.......the bedroom was pretty bad,cheap hostel type bedding, the room just about allowed for the double bed. Two people could dress if one person used the bathroom. The owners must spend money here. It's a hotel that attracts families,children,dogs et al....hence the dog friendly bedrooms, perhaps that's a market they want to stay in. If you stay then bring your favourite pillow, and ask for a room that measures a bit more than 7'x 8'. That said, I would love to go back again.......just bring my own bed linen!. Hopefully the bedrooms will be upgraded. So, we'll run,great food,great staff. Collapse

4 of us stayed and had a wonderful holiday. The scenery in the area cannot be beat. The grounds were beautiful, we went in fall, I can imagine how lovely they would be in July or August! The hotel was charming, we were lucky enough to stay in one of the cottages on the grounds, which could use some updating, but we had a great time w/ the sauna and fireplace. Food at the restaurant was very good and the lobby is very cozy with 2 fireplace and a small bar Collapse

My wife booked the Renvyle House Hotel for me as a birthday treat.. We were personally welcomed back by Ronnie Counihan CEO and his excelent team. Renvyle House is a very special place which I first visited in 1982 and return year after year. The hotel has some of the best food in Connemara sourced locally. Book a visit. You won't be dissapointed. Am already looking to returning in May 17 for a fly fishing weekend. Collapse
