Perfectly positioned within the Wild Atlantic Way lies a luxury boutique resort hotel & Spa with private access to the blue flag Mannin Bay beach. Highly regarded for its fabulous food using fresh, local ...More produce from artisan farmers and suppliers. A Voya seaweed spa using the first certified organic seaweed products in Ireland. Stunning scenery in every direction, white sandy beaches, aqua blue, pristine waters and imposing mountains. Indulge in local culture with traditional music and dance. Lots of festivals and events including the Connemara Pony Show and the Tour de Bog cycling. Activity or relaxation, stunning vistas and chic interiors. Less
