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.

we that is my good Husband, my Father of 92 years of age and my Sister and her Husband have just arrived back from the most enjoyable 5 night holiday at Renvyle House. It was a 2nd visit for my Husband and I and a first for Dad, my Sister and her Husband. what a relaxing time we had and the food was amazing, my Sister who stays in many Irish Hotels was of the opinion that the standard and quality of each meal went far way above 5 star standard. We would all have to share this view. The service was first class from all staff members, cleaning, kitchen, dining room and front of house nothing was too much trouble and our every whim was catered for. In fact my Dad who normally has tummy troubles as he likes to call them whenever he goes away was in perfect health for the entire duration of the holiday and we were almost embarrassed by the amount of food he put away at each meal. So much so that we took photos of each dish he ate to send to our other siblings back home. The presentation and quality of the food was so good. we are convinced that it was all this healthy food without additives that ensured that he suffered no tummy troubles on our watch and thoroughly enjoyed his holiday. I wondered what would be the best way to thank Ronnie and Philip and their team and my Husband suggested that I go back to posting a TripAdvisor Review - a thing I have not been doing of late and so I have. I cannot end this Review without mentioning Joe our Irish Waiter who is the most wonderful young man that it has been our pleasure to meet - Joe you are one cool dude, likewise all the other dining room staff with particular mention to Lucia, Erwan, Milla and the charming young lady from Austria - sorry guys I cannot mention you all but you know who you are and we thank you for all your charming manor and kindness to us all each day you were a pleasure to chat to. So a big thank you Ronnie and Philip if you get to read this. we hope to return again soon and I hope that you will be able to accommodate us when we do cause you were booked out this week and i am quite sure you are very busy for the rest of the Summer.

My partner and I had dinner in the hotel restaurant. Initial impressions were less than favourable - on phoning to make a booking the response was very off-hand, very much like "we're doing you a favour!" On arrival we were kept waiting for quite a while at the busy restaurant entrance, without any greeting or acknowledgement of our presence. After being shown a table we were surprised to find that there were no prices on the menu. We were told that if we had all five courses on offer that would cost €55 but we found it frustrating not to know the exact cost of what we were ordering. We both had crabmeat salad for starter which whilst tasty and nicely presented was quite a small helping. We then had roast rack of lamb which was very good I have to say, and decent portions. I had dessert (quite good) and coffee. My partner had a glass of house Pinot Grigio costing over €7 which she said was just about passable, whilst I had 2 glasses of house Merlot (about €6.25 each) which was good. The bill for this, 2 starters, 2 main courses, 1 dessert, 1 coffee and 3 glasses of house wine came to €118.35 which I consider to be exorbitant, especially as the meal (apart from the mains) and wine were unexceptional. The service during the meal itself was quite good, the waiters being both quite friendly and polite. However when I went to reception to pay the bill the woman there twice addressed me as “my lovely” which I thought was inappropriate and patronising – not what one expects in a supposedly 4 star hotel. My partner reported that the ladies’ toilets were anything but 4 star standard. We had hoped dinner in Renvyle House would be the highlight of our week in Connemara this year but overall we found the experience disappointing. Collapse

This hotel is set in an incredible location with a lake on one side and the Atlantic Ocean on the other. The scenery is breathtaking. The gardens and grounds are wonderful. The room was comfortable and extremely clean but could do with an update. The food was excellent. The staff are efficient but they are not friendly. The front desk staff answer your questions briefly and curtly . The room maid was by far the friendlliest person we encountered. What a pity in this otherwise lovely hotel. Collapse

Although the weather was rainy the hotel made up for this. The grounds were beautiful to walk in and the food was excellent. We found the breakfast choice amazing. As we stayed longer than 7 nights the evening menu although really excellent, did not give us a lot of choice and we ended up repeating our choice which was a shame as the chef was fantastic. On a couple of evening when there was a function on, we could not have an early meal which did make up feel as guests a little pushed out. We would have eaten out if we had been aware it was to be 8pm or even 9pm but when we booked a table the Receptionist was unaware it was going to be a late meal in the Restaurant or even for a bar meal. Apart from this the hotel staff were wonderful and we loved the peat fires and cosy areas. The pre theatre plays were a lovely addition and we were lucky to see a function of irish dancing and music. A thankyou to the Manager and staff for making our first trip to Ireland a beautiful memory for us. Collapse

My dream was to travel to Ireland. Renvyle House was where I found myself from May 20 - 27, 2017. It was everything I dreamed Ireland to be. The beauty was breathtaking. Every turn had nature at its best. The food, well, simply wonderful! Hats off to Ronnie Counihan and his staff. They treated you like family. Had the experience of a lifetime. I felt rejuvenated after my week there. Collapse
