Building: 1883

Renvyle House Hotel & Resort is a four-star country house hotel in the wild splendour of Connemara, neighbouring the Wild Atlantic Way: a 2,500km-long coastal route that cuts through some of the most astonishing landscapes in all of Ireland.

With our unbeatable location and warm staff, you’ll find the perfect blend of history, nature and hospitality, here. Our stunning property is located on a 150-acre estate which includes a private freshwater lake and access to woodlands, orchards, gardens, a beach and more, along with a restaurant that’s fabled for its fresh fare.

Established as a hotel in 1883, Renvyle House Hotel & Resort was previously the home of the chieftain of one of the oldest and most powerful Gaelic clans in the 12th century, as well as of the poet, statesman and surgeon, Oliver St. John Gogarty, who was the inspiration for the character of Buck Milligan in James Joyce’s ‘Ulysses’. Over centuries it’s been pulled down, rebuilt, burned to ashes and rebuilt once again, before becoming a favourite holiday spot of historic figures like Lady Gregory, Yeats and Churchill. Today, it continues to be beloved by all those who walk through its doors, and has won several awards including the ‘Best Countryside Hotel Award’ in the Historic Hotels of Europe Awards 2020.

Our Executive Chef, Tim O’Sullivan, was named the ‘Best Chef in Connacht’ at the National Food & Wine Awards. We pride ourselves on the food we offer at Renvyle House Hotel & Resort, and source a lot of our ingredients from our own kitchen gardens and orchards. On our menu you’ll see a wide range of Irish and continental cuisine including Connemara lamb and locally-caught fish, and with the ability to seat 120 people in our restaurant, there’s room for everyone.

You’ll never be bored at our country house. Across our grounds there are so many things to explore and do, with highlights including a freshwater lake for boating, canoeing and fly-fishing, a beach for sunbathing and swimming, and access to two all-weather tennis courts and an outdoor heated pool. After busy days, unwind in our treatment rooms at Renew: our decadent spa wherein you can book massages, skincare treatments and soothing body therapies.
