We stayed in the Renvyle House Hotel for 2 nights at the beginning of December. It was the most perfect experience! From the beginning, the warm welcoming fires in the lobby helped us to immediately unwind following a 2 and a half hour journey with 3 very restless kids.
The setting is sublime – and as my brother (who stayed there this time last year) had told me: it’s a place where you want the weather to be cold and wintry so that you can go for your energizing walk and come back and get ready for your delicious evening meal.
The staff were faultless – friendly yet discreet. The food was both copious and delicious. The setting was like a fairy-tale with mountain backdrops and a wild sea crashing against the rocks. The bedrooms we stayed in were large, exceptionally clean and the bathroom was tiled in what seemed like Connemara marble. The shower was amazingly powerful.
Our children loved it – they especially loved playing croquet and feeding the ducks (a very kind staff member filled a bag of bread to give to them)
I haven’t stopped raving about the Renvyle House Hotel since our return … and I was so surprised to learn of the amount of family and friends who had stayed there already and couldn’t wait to return. It is a well-guarded secret.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Renvyle House is a four star, historic country house, family owned and family run. It first opened as a hotel in 1883 and is spectacularly located on a 150 acre estate on the shores of the Wild Atlantic Way (midway point of the longest car touring route in the world!). Renvyle House is known for it’s “air of otherwordliness” which we believe is a strong and unique selling point and something of which we are very proud. Our emphasis is on customer service “friendly combined with professional” and we believe this plays a large part in why Renvyle enjoys over 55% repeat business. The hotel resort grounds include a private lake, a par 3 golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens and numerous activities on site including tennis, croquet, outdoor heated swimming pool & Canadia Hot Tub which overlokks the Atlantic (summer months), fly-fishing, canoeing and more. Renvyle House is also well known for it’s good food and this is as much due to the locally sourced fresh produce (lamb, fish, vegetables and herbs from our own garden) as to Tim O’Sullivan’s expertise in the kitchen (Tim is our award winning Executive Chef). Renvyle House always has a warm welcome guaranteed for every guest. ... more less
