Cashel House Hotel, one of Connemara’s most gracious mid-19th century country houses, is a luxury, family-run hotel that stands at the head of Cashel Bay in County Galway. The hotel is set in 20 hectares of award-winning gardens containing flowering shrubs and woodland walks.
The gardens at Cashel House Hotel are a place of profound beauty, a place of meditation and relaxation, which benefits from the warmth of the Gulf Stream. Blossoms galore welcome spring in all its glory! Visitors can take a guided tour or potter at their leisure. Benches are located throughout the garden for rest and reflection.
Withdrawn and quietly secluded, the gardens are a delight, with their enchanting cultivations of exotic and exquisite flowering shrubs – many imported from Tibet – including rhododendrons, azaleas, camellias and the rare beautiful magnolias. Lists of rare trees are available at reception.
Cashel House Hotel also boasts its own herb garden. No chemicals are needed to encourage growth, as a mixture of seaweed from the beach combined with a few secret ingredients is used as a magnificent fertilizer.
Don’t miss the walk along the seashore, through the woods and climb onto Cashel Hill for spectacular views of the coastline.
