Overview

Ideal for Kids Pets Welcome Walk to Village

Connemara Country House holds a wonderful location set in an area known for its breath-taking landscapes on the outskirts of the wonderful Connemara National Park. While the closest amenities can be found just a ten-minute walk away in the small village of Letterfrack, guests will feel a million miles from any hustle and bustle, instead enjoying complete and total tranquillity.

The historic hunting lodge dates back to 1849, it has since been lovingly and sympathetically  updated while retaining all of its original charm and character. Connemara Country House can comfortably sleep up to ten guests across five well-appointed bedrooms, four of which have access to en-suite bathrooms while guests staying in the remaining room have sole use of a separate wet room. On the ground floor is the main entertaining area with formal drawing room, cosy living room with comfy corner sofa and a fully equipped kitchen with dining facilities and all the tools a budding chef could possibly need to cook up a storm! Also on this level, are the first of the bedrooms, a king-size double room with en-suite shower room and a twin room with access to a separate wet room. Upstairs on the first floor are the remaining bedrooms, two luxurious king-size rooms and a twin-bedded room, each of which comes complete with its very own en-suite shower or bathroom.

Outside, there are large gardens for guests to explore while the children will enjoy playing games on the lawn. Spend the perfect evening on the terrace enjoying a sundowner after a busy day exploring this truly beautiful part of Ireland!

Reviews

  • Highly recommend

    Posted by Mary Mitchell on 06/09/2019

    I just spent a lovely week at Connemara Country House. This is a fabulous house in a beautiful location and within easy reach of some of the most amazing scenery, places of interest, good restaurants , pubs, shops and spectacular golf courses. The bedrooms and reception rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. The kitchen facilities are perfect for catering for a large group. The house come with many extras like books, games etc., . Although we never needed to make contact it was assuring to have a local number should we need anything. I would highly recommend Connemara Country House and is perfect for a family or group to enjoy.

  • 5* Stay

    Posted by Noreen Shanahan on 29/08/2019

    The house is beautifully presented and the welcoming touches (first morning breakfast supplied) are lovely. The house is extremely comfortable, gardens fantastic. Cannot recommend enough for a stay in Connemara.

  • Great location and home to stay in

    Posted by Allan on 15/08/2019

    Has everything you need and more. Owners and caretakers on hand at all times for any problems. Loads of nice touches and a well stocked fridge for breakfast. Had a great week using Diamond Lodge as our base exploring Connemara. Great local pubs esp. Paddy Coynes in Tully Cross, Amazing beaches, national Parks etc etc etc. Cant recommend the house and area highly enough.

  • Lovely location and splendid House

    Created on 08/03/2019

    We stayed at the house for a week in January. This part of Ireland is fantastic and even though we were told things would be a bit dull this time of year, we had a great time driving around. But that's only when we could tear ourselves from House. This is a truly amazing house being both luxurious and highly finished and cosy and homey at the same time. The views out of the windows feel like you're in a Victorian country estate. That's even though 'downtown' Letterfrack is 700 metres away. Blink and you might miss the four pubs and 7-days a week all hours convenience store. Cannot recommend House and Letterfrack and Galway enough.

  • Wonderful stay

    Created on 14/12/2018

    I stayed in Connemara Country House with my family and it was an absolute dream! The house is beautifully decorated with all mod cons like WiFi and cable TV but a lovely sense of tranquility and country living prevails. There’s even a four poster bed! The location is beautiful with scenic walks and lots of local history. We enjoyed the local pub and restaurant too. I’d highly recommend it.

  • 5 star stay

    Created on 26/10/2018

    Stunning is the only word to describe this incredible find which we stayed in for one week in Oct. The house had just been released as a holiday rental, and we were so lucky to have been the first guests to stay there. Renovated with furnishings and fittings of the very highest standard. The gardens mature and so well maintained, and the scenery in that part of Connemara is just breathtaking. There were 9 of us in total, all members of the same family. The added bonus was that we could take our little 9 year old Westie dog with us!. We will definitely return to Connemara Country House in the not too distant future, as it is one of the best holiday rentals we have ever stayed in.
