Lounge & Piano Bar:
At the end of a hard day's leisure, come in to the hotel bar where plump armchairs outnumber bar stools and a turf fire glows all year round. You can enjoy an evening of musical entertainment with our resident pianist. Spontaneous sing-songs occur regularly, and you are invited to join in.

From the idyllic setting of the Rock Glen you can explore the many sandy beaches nearby, at Mannin Bay or Ballyconneely. Or why not take a trip to nearby Roundstone village, passing by the historic landing site of Alcock & Brown and, nearer the village itself, beautiful Dog's Bay.

If you're a golfing enthusiast you'll be delighted to hear that the spectacular setting of the Connemara Golf Club, an 18 hole championship course, is only a 15-minute drive from the Hotel.

Connemara is perfect for hillwalking, and for river, lake and sea-fishing. If you want to go pony-trekking (Connemara is famous for its ponies), we can arrange it for you.

We have a full-size snooker table, as well as an all-weather tennis court and croquet lawn for your pleasure. We can even arrange clay-pigeon shooting on request.
