  • Spacious rooms all offer beautiful views of the river and surrounding woodland


The 16th century Ballynahinch Castle Hotel feels more like a manor house than a true castle and is surrounded by gorgeous parkland, offering beautiful river views from every room. Set along the Wild Atlantic Way on Ireland's west coast, it is a relaxing and incredibly friendly base for exploring the many nearby areas of natural beauty.

The 48 rooms and suites at Ballynahinch all combine old-world countryside elegance with an authentic atmosphere. Plush furnishings and comfortable fabrics ensure each room feels warm and welcoming, while every modern convenience is accounted for. When not enjoying the river views from your room, enjoy a leisurely walk on the estate, or opt for something more adventurous nearby such as top notch fly-fishing, sailing or horseback riding.

In the elegant setting of Ballynahinch Castle's Owenmore restaurant, enjoy sensational dishes that correspond to the seasons with the freshest produce, fish and game. If you are looking for something more casual, relax by the log fires at the hotel's Fisherman's Pub, where guests and locals can chat over freshly-caught seafood.

Ballynahinch Castle makes for the ideal base from which to explore Connemara's fishing villages, castles and abbeys. Driving along the Connemara coastline is an experience not to be missed, offering incredible views and breathtaking scenery, such as the spectacular Cliffs of Moher.
