Boasting a truly scenic location, the Leenane Hotel sits in the picturesque village of Leenane, County Galway, overlooking Killary Harbour. Originally established as a coaching inn in the 18th century, the hotel now offers traditional hospitality along with modern standards, as it was completely refurbished in the 1990s. The hotel now offers modern accommodation and fine dining for travellers.
Family operated, the hotel offers well-appointed guest rooms, most of which have stunning views of the harbour. Each room is uniquely styled with antique furnishings. Guests can also make use of the hotel’s facilities, which include a bar, restaurant and private residents’ lounge. The open turf fire in the bar creates a cosy ambiance, while the lounge is a larger room filled with interesting antiques. The restaurant has a reputation for serving good food including fresh seafood and fine wines, allowing diners to relax and enjoy gourmet cuisine.
Connemara, Galway and the West of Ireland provide numerous opportunities for sightseeing. The world-famous Kylemore Abbey is located 16km miles from the hotel, along the main Clifden Road, which also leads to Connemara National Park, an ideal spot for a picnic or scenic walk. Additionally, there are cruises on Killary Harbour and local adventure centres for active breaks.
