We recently stayed at the Connaught Inn while in Castlebar for the CRN World Championships & were sad to leave. Denis & Lee made us feel at home from the very 1st moments. Lee even came outside to help guide us to the car park area. The staff were wonderful (we especially appreciated all of Maria's hard work & very friendly personality). The rooms were clean. Great location. Great food & beverages (the pub is on the ground floor!). To top it off, Denis & Lee successfully threw together a party for our Irish Dancers & families (with very short notice) at the end of our stay! It was a wonderful experience overall!

It was a great stay at the Connaught as we stayed there during the CRN Worlds Irish Dancing Championships. Great location, clean, comfortable rooms and great food. Denis and Lee were very accommodating and put together a last minute party for our team at the end of the competition. I highly recommend the Connaught Inn in Castlebar.

“Lovely Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014 via mobile

We were in Castlebar today for the football Feile. We needed food before heading home and called in. We had a really good experience. Food was lovely and the portions were generous. Staff were friendly and explained they are only open seven months. Will be back next time we are in Castlebar.

“Fabulous Stay!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

From the time we booked to the moment we left the service at the Connaught Inn was amazing. I had lots of questions before we left and Lee answered everything promptly and kindly via e-mail. Breakfast was excellent and included in the price of the room. The rooms are clean and appear brand new. We stayed for 3 nights and had dinner there 2 of the nights which was also excellent. But the best part was the warm and friendly way Dennis, Lee and their staff make you feel. We had my 82 year old mother with her wheelchair and they couldn't have been any kinder or more patient with us. Thanks so much Lee and Dennis for making our vacation so special, we'll be back!
