“5 star service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 March 2014

Had a beautiful weekend here. The staff were all so friendly (in particular Catherine and Ronnie).
Food was lovely and a great selection of everything. Music in the bar both nights was very good. The views and the gardens were amazing, as was the weather. It was great to see people relaxing in the conservatory with books and people outside on their horses and dogs. My only complaint is that I didn't have another night!! Can't wait to go back.

Go to Renvyle if you like sea views, fresh air, turf fires to relax by, friendly staff and food to die for. Do not go if you want a gym work out, loud bar and hussle and bussle. Bring your walking shoes and experience conneamara at its best .

The signpost on the driveway in says "You are now entering a stress free zone" and that's just what it was. Excellent food & wonderful friendly service (Philip & Stephen in particular). Faultless from start to finish.

We attended a wedding here in February. We just loved the hotel, it's setting and particularly it's friendly and efficient staff. The wedding fare was the best I've ever had in Ireland. The breakfasts were very good also. No complaints at all. Well maybe just one tiny one, too much cream used in soups and in the turbot dish I had for dinner on the second night.
We will return.

In driving around Connemara for several weeks a sure fire place to stop for lunch and wonderful soups and service was Renvyle House right on the beach and on the edge of the woods. We loved stopping here each time and would recommend it to anyone.

Dear Steven B,
We may quote you on that one! Thank you for coming in for lunch and delighted you enjoyed it.
We hope the rest of your tour around Connemara was as enjoyable, there's certainly plenty to explore and lots of great people to meet.
Thank you for recommending us. We have a couple of our soup recipes, under our restaurant page, on our website should you wish recreate it?

This hotel is in a league of its own. Whilst it's not the most modern, nor is the standard of accommodation fantastic, none of that matters. The setting is beautiful, the staff cannot do enough for you, the relaxed atmosphere is great, breakfast was bustling which made us feel really comfortable as we had a busy little boy with us & we didn't feel embarrassed when he was being a little boy, playing and messing around. We booked a babysitter and had dinner in the hotel. It was gorgeous. Restaurant was packed & it's no wonder. You may think that one doesn't have much choice when you're out in Renvyle but being honest, when the food is that good, why would you want to leave. After dinner, we sat by the fire having a relaxing drink. If was heaven! Each morning, our little boy fed the ducks outside. It was just beautiful. I will definitely return to Renvyle. Loved it!!!

My husband and I were on a cycling tour of the west coast area of Ireland - Aran Islands, Connemara coast. Renvyle House Hotel was one of lunch stops. Even with a group of 18 the staff handled lunch very well. We had sandwiches and the most delicious fish chowder. Great lunch.
