Reviewed 1 July 2014

We were bought this stay as a present for our birthdays. Everything about this hotel says CLASS. Restaurant was excellent for our evening meal, and also for breakfast. Room was superb, and the spa was brilliant. It is a short walk from Westport town center, but you could quite easily spend all your time at the hotel.

Upon recommendation from a featured article in the Daily Mail we checked out this hotel and spa. A few minutes walk outside the picturesque town of Westport, Co. Mayo, Knockranny House Hotel and Spa is nestled perfectly on a hill overlooking Clew Bay and Croagh Patrick and Westport Town. Check in was hassle free and we were pleasantly surprised to receive an upgrade to an upper floor suite. Staff were friendly, warm and helpful from the front desk to the restaurant. During our 2-night stay we dined at the Brehon Bar, a good selection was available, all reasonably priced. The views from the bar were stunning and the atmosphere was relaxed, staff were also informative, polite and attentive to our needs. On our second night we dined at the highly rated La Fougere restaurant for a 4-course meal (included as part of our package). We struggled to clear our plates and our palettes were truly sated. The amuse-bouche of smoked salmon was particularly delicious accompanied by a selection of homemade breads. A hearty breakfast was served each morning with plenty of choice. The entire package was value for money. The only downside was our Spa booking had been mislaid, but as a gesture of goodwill we were treated to some complimentary treatments. Definitely worth a return visit.

Room Tip: Make sure you book the Spa treatment in advance and confirm 24-48 hours ahead of your visit to save...

My wife , son and I recently stayed for 2 nights in the Knockranny. AS always, we were treated royally by the excellent staff. The food was great, both breakfast and dinner. Take a bow, Chef Séamus Commons!
My son's single room was even better than our double room. Best single I've ever seen. He had views in two directions, including Croagh Patrick. Our view was northwards, nothing to complain about.
Knockranny House is on top of a hill, overlooking Westport, the sea and mountains. The view for the Restaurant, Bar and Terrace is wonderful, taking in the mountains and islands of Clew Bay, all the way to Clare Island.
It was my first time in the Vitality pool and ancillaries - lovely place to spend an hour.
All in all, a brilliant stay, not for the first time!
PS: I left my phone charger after me. I was delighted that the hotel returned it to my home by post, Thanks for everything!

Room Tip: Looks like most rooms have a good view

I could go on and on and on but Hey! Why spoil your HOLIDAY go see for yourself.

Where will we go to for a break? The answer always falls between Donegal and Mayo. If it's Mayo then it's always Westport and if it's Westport it's always Knockranny House. Their rates are always reasonable and the quality of food, hospitality and service is always top class.

Room Tip: Look for a room with a view of the Reek. If one is available it will be "the icing on the cake...

We recently stayed here for a friends wedding for two nights and we had a super stay. As soon as you pull up to it, you are instantly wowed. It has a great pool and spa facility, a great bonus to the hotel. A lovely open fire greets guests on arrival and gives out such a homely feel.

We were upgraded to a suite, so the room was extremely spacious. The showers were fab, the knock spots off your back kind of one, loved it. The beds were extremely comfortable and spacious. Had a great two nights sleep.

We had breakfast in the restaurant both mornings and were lucky to get a seat by the bay window with amazing views, including Croagh Patrick.

Its just a short trip to Westport, where there is no shortage of amazing things to do.

i had a really great stay here at the knockranny. it is a very big hotel / resort, with a lot of great things to offer during your stay. i was there for a wedding, and it was nice after a long night out to have a great comfortable bed to fall into. hotel beds can feel a bit uncomfortable at times, but i thought this one was great, almost like sleeping in a cloud, especially with the down comforters. the staff were always helpful and accommodating. if you are taking the train to westport and are staying at the knockranny, make sure you arrange for transportation to the hotel. it is a difficult walk to the hotel, walking up and up a hill from the train station. if you drove, well, your life was made just a bit easier! but all in all, i had a great stay. there is a running trail so you can see another side of westport outside of the hotel, which was great to take in the fresh air after a fun night out. oh and cannot forget the free breakfast, which was delish! that also helps after a fun night out.
