Chose to treat ourselves during our stay in Connemara to the €55 pp menu. Everything was so traditional straight out of the 1960s really. Food was fine just not special. Perfectly OK. An enjoyable yet disappointing evening really.

Took my dad here recently for a small break. Beautiful bedrooms, stunning food, amazing experience overall. Food was lovely and staff fantastic. So welcoming. Very quiet and peaceful if you want to get away from it all. Well worth a trip.

Cashel House Hotel is situated in the West of Ireland on the Galway/Connemara border overlooking Cashel Bay and just eight miles from Roundstone and a 15 minute drive from Clifden.

If you’re used to modern 4-5 star city-type hotels then this old-world, cosy,efficient but friendly quiet oasis with splendid gardens may not be for you. A fine location with great views and garden walks with impressively efficient but friendly staff along with spacious ‘olde-worlde’ style rooms with an emphasis on good food, are the hotel’s key selling points.

Breakfasts are cooked to order but the buffet table also includes fresh fruits, cereals, breads, freshly squeezed orange juice, smoked salmon and a large ham on the bone.

The evening dinner menu includes the usual standards – Mussels, Prawns, Crab, Oysters, Chowder, Rack of lamb, Fillet steak, Dover sole, plaice, brill, lobster – and all locally sourced. I’ve been to Cashel House Hotel three times now and it never disappoints. My last evening meal comprised a Crab Claw starter, medium Rack of Lamb with Gratin Dauphinoise finished off with a warm Rhubarb Tart & Ginger Ice Cream and coffee washed down with a reasonably priced Bordeaux.

Owner Kay McEvilly makes a point of touring the dining room each evening stopping at each table for a brief chat to ensure your needs are being met – a simple but very effective PR touch. Behind the scene hotel manager Ray Doorley and front of house colleague Jean along with their mainly Irish and Philipino staff look after the guests in an efficient but endearingly friendly manner.

I’m already looking forward to my return.

My wife and I spent a wonderfully relaxing weekend at Cashel House at the end of August. We got a warm friendly welcome on arrival. Our suite was on the top floor with a beautiful view of the gardens and the sea. The decor is suited to the era of the house and was a welcome change from the clinical blandness of a lot of modern hotels. A pre-dinner drink in the bar was most enjoyable with friendly banter from the excellent barman. Dinner was served in a conservatory/dining room overlooking the garden. We enjoyed it so much the first night that we returned to dine the next night too. Excellent local seasonal produce cooked beautifully. Service was excellent but done with a personal friendliness often lacking in modern restaurants. A visit to each table and a friendly chat from the proprietor was a lovely touch. Cashel House is a peaceful oasis - perfect for a break away from the hustle and bustle. We will definitely be back.

Location lovely. Superior room tired and dated, bathroom archaic. Grounds sadly in need of maintenance. Dinner was good. Staff very nice. Breakfast was disappointing. Needs a makeover. Reasonable price...but wouldn't be happy to recommend.
