The bar is one in which to meet and greet over a beer, wine or any of our range of drinks. Or merely sit back, sip away and watch the world go by. Join in the regular musical and singalong evenings.
So what can guests do outside of the hotel - tour the surrounding Connemara countryside, scuba dive, fish in the fresh loughs or in the salty seas, boat trips, visits to nearby islands, hiking in the hills, trekking through the national park, romancing on the white sandy beaches, day trip to Kylemore, visit Clifden, golf in Connemara links or Westport parkland. Swim, run, hire a cycle, chat and reminisce of days of old, visit the pubs in the village, view the Harry Clarke stained glass windows in the Church, well worth a look. Lots and lots to do.
