Dating from 1228, this magnificent castle is set in over 350 acres of rolling parklands, occupying a stunning position on the edge of Lough Corrib, and has now completed a multi-million refurbishment. Bedrooms and suites vary in style, but all benefit from a pleasing combination of character, charm and modern comforts. Dinner in the elegant George V Dining Room is a treat, with creative cookery of seasonal ingredients. Less formal dining is available in The Dungeon and other locations on the estate during peak periods. The hotel offers an extensive range of both indoor and outdoor leisure pursuits including falconry, golf, shooting, fishing, an equestrian centre and lake cruising. A spectacular spa and fitness facility in a striking bronze conservatory overlooks the lake.
