“Lovely stay”
Reviewed 5 August 2012

My husband and I had a lovely stay at Eldon's. We were there for two nights and couldn't have been happier. The people were so nice and the facilities were great. Breakfast was terrific. I highly recommend staying here if you are lucky enough to get to Roundstone.

The hotel is a very nice place in a quaint village. We had a suite with a little balcony that allowed us to see harbor, with a few fishing boats. We were on a cycling holiday with Cycle Holidays Ireland, and we had rode thru Connemara to get to the village. It was the perfect place to stay after the magical ride thru herds of sheep in valleys with streams running from the tops of the hills.

Room Tip: Ask for the suite with the balcony overlooking the street.

My wife and I stayed two nights at Eldons during a week long cycling trek. The service was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The pub and community sitting areas were very comfortable and a nice alternative to B & B lodging. The room was more than adequate for the cost. A good choice for a Roundstone stay, right in the center of town. It's a 2 minute walk to O'Dowd's for a wonderful meal, just come very early or have reservations.

We have just spent two nights at this hotel which is run by Carole Reynolds and her son Philip. The reception was warm, the rooms comfortable and the food, both in the bar and in the restaurant, was very good. Would I stay there again definately yes, and would I recommend it - another big yes - a warm welcome, a great little village and an ideal spot for touring Connemara.

I stayed in Eldons for two nights while on a self-guided cycling trip through Connemara. I arrived from Leenane, exhausted after a 100km day that included Tully's Hill and the famous Sky Road. Carol, who manages Eldons, was great, got me checked in and settled quickly, and then directed me to their in-house bar where her son Phillip got me set up with some Jameson's and lemon to mix in with my cold medicine. I spent two very rainy and cold days in Eldon's, nursing a cold and resting up for my onward journey. Carol and Phillip took very good care of me, and I had two excellent dinners in the bar--even though the restaurant was not yet up and running for the season. It's a classic old hotel, (reportedly haunted by Mrs Eldon) with very comfortable rooms and nice communal areas. Free WiFi worked well, though they tell me my room was the only upstairs area where the signal is strong enough. A great place, in a beautiful coastal town, run by a very nice family!

We recently spent two nights in Eldons as part of a biking group tour(Cycling Safaris). Carol and her son were great hosts and made us feel so welcome.
We all enjoyed a fun evening singing in the bar with some local musicians and the staff were all up dancing.
Breakfast was hearty with great selections which prepared us well for our day of biking. The dinner was a gourmet delight and thoroughly enjoyed by all.
I hope we will have another opportunity to visit Roundstone in the future.
