Ballynahinch Castle is Connemara’s premier castle hotel located on a 700 acre estate overlooking the river and mountains. The hotel has been welcoming guests for over 250 years and was once home to the O’Flaherty Chieftains, Grace O’Malley and an Indian prince, Maharajah Ranjitsinhji. Now a beautiful and world renowned hotel and sporting estate, Ballynahinch Castle offers guests an unrivalled experience of true Irish hospitality. Authentic, professional yet friendly and unpretentious, hosts will help guests make the most of the visit. With 48 bedrooms and suites choose from the cosy classic rooms each individually furnished with varying aspects and shapes; the larger superior and luxury rooms all overlook the river. The magnificent Riverside Suites offer a bedroom with king sized four poster bed and separate sitting room each with wonderful views of the river and woodland.
Explore the 10 miles of looped walking trails on the estate. Take a guided walk or join the guide for a half or full day hike. Try a hand at fly fishing, escape by bicycle to the local village or simply relax with a favourite book by one of five open log fires.
The kitchens of Ballynahinch Castle have been delighting both visitors and local diners for years. The culinary team prepares creative, diverse menus made with the finest of local products. Enjoy dinner in the elegantly refurbished Owenmore Restaurant or the more casual Fisherman’s Pub or Ranji room where guests will also meet the locals.
Ballynahinch Castle Hotel is located close to the ferry and airport to the Aran Islands. Kylemore Abbey and Connemara Golf Club are all within one hours’ drive of the hotel making Ballynahinch the perfect base for exploring Connemara and the Wild Atlantic Way.
