“A class above”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Anywhere west of Galway, whilst very welcoming and clean, can be a bit rustic for the normal traveller, but Fairhill House is simply a class above. Its spotlessly clean, run by fantastic helpful and obliging staff and the craic in the evenings is hard to describe. The boss, Eddie, is also a delight and could not be more accomodating.
Our last visit was sadly for a Family funeral and they put themselves out massively to accommodate our last-minute requests. Our usual visit is in October when there are a lot of us there, all wanting to eat and rink at different times - not a problem for Mr Lynch's gang.
If you're anywhere west of Galway and looking for a base, you'd be hard-pushed to find anything quite like it. Ten out of ten from me.

Room Tip: Haven't ever been in a bad one, except one night when there was a problem with a fire alarm blee...

I ordered Irish stew.....there were only a few pieces of shredded meat accompanied by mashed potatoes and uncooked boiled potatoes bathed in non description juice, I did enjoy the few carrots and onions. Would not recommend this place. Others had fish and chips which was quite good.

Thank you for taking time to review Eddies Bar. It is unfortunate you did not enjoy your "Irish Stew" as this is a local dish and very popular having received several good reviews on this site. The fish & chips is very good and also very popular. Hopefully you will return and try it.

Grand, cosy, welcoming bar, great atmosphere, witty and convivial staff, relaxed and friendly atmosphere. We have been coming here for years and years. Food is tasty and plentiful, generous proportions, served well and attentively. Really enjoyed relaxing here over a glass of wine. We would highly recommend this bar/restaurant . You will be looked after. Enjoy

Stayed here last week. Good food and good staff. Smallish bedroom, allegedly a double, but far too small for two people. No chair or stool to write on or check the laptop. The bar area is far too cramped. The rubbish outside the hotel to the car park at the rear was disgraceful.

Room Tip: Check out the rooms beforehand.

I stayed in Clonbur on Tuesday night - it was not planned but suffice to say that Eddie Lynch's establishment is still top notch ! Clonbur is one of my favourite Irish Villages that has not been spoiled and has an authentic feel to it. Fairhill is a real Gem . It may only carry 3 stars but its a lot better than that in my view. The Room was excellent , clean , warm , and in perfect order and the food was superb particularly regarding the prices which were more than reasonable. People should bear in mind that VALUE for money is relative - if you want 5 Star go to a Five star and pay Five star prices. For Me I'd much prefer to stay in Clonbur and pay 3 star in Fairhill but with the friendliness of staff and general ambience I'd prefer it to Ashford Castle ( where I have stayed ) !

We had a family meal at Fairhill House Hotel in April. The service was chaotic as the hotel was understaffed. We ordered bottle of white wine and when it arrived, it was warm. We then waited an hour for our main course. The waitresses were all running around and did not have the time or the energy to care what the customers thought! Desserts and coffees never arrived at all so we gave up, paid the bill and went home!

Thank You for taking the time to review Eddies Bar @ Fairhill House Hotel. We are sorry to hear you did enjoy your visit with us as we are a very popular place to eat. On that day pre bookings were up and we had a large number of the "off the road bookings" we did our best to accommodate everyone. We pride ourselves on good freshly cooked to order food, friendly staff and comfortable hotel. We would hope you would call in again and give us a chance to give you an enjoyable experience.

My cousins and I attended a family funeral and stayed 3 nights. The owner and staff could not be more gracious and kind. The accommodations were great. And the food was excellent. Over all they helped us turn an unpleasant reason to travel into an enjoyable trip.
