Ballynahinch Castle, a luxury castle hotel in Galway, Ireland has long and strong foundations. Its beautiful rooms, such as the luxury Riverside wing, are furnished individually and tastefully at this popular Connemara hotel.

Locally caught fish along with fresh home produce is served in its luxury restaurant. The presence of real log fires and its old world bar showcase the elegant charm of the residence.

Ballynahinch Castle is set in 350 acres on stunningly beautiful grounds offering fishing rights on own our river and lakes, cycling, tennis as well as 26,000 acres of prime woodcock shoot among its hotel activities.

The castle is within close proximity to Connemara fishing courses, horse riding, and a championship golf course.

Ballynahinch has been untouched by time and offers a highly comfortable late 20th Century experience.

Bridgestone's Jameson Guide, Fodors and Karen Brown and have all recommended this luxury Galway hotel that holds Two AA Rosettes.

Our experience has been unforgettable. I must say a few nice words about the chef, as foodies, we were amazed and pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food here, i still miss the walnut bread for breakfast and everything else of course. The dinner was top quality - and that's speaking from someone who has been living in London for the past 10 years and travelled around the world. Service was impeccable. We certainly enjoyed reading a book in the Hunt's room by the fire after dinner. The view from our room was peaceful, we had a few walks in the woodland, it's absolutely delightful. If it's a clear night, oh my, you have to look out for the shooting stars. I have never seen so many stars and such beautiful sky!! There are things can certainly use some upgrade of course, but overall we really enjoyed our stay. The water from the shower/tap was light yellow colour somehow, but i guess it's due to the geographical reasons.

Lovely place really, wish we could've stayed longer! Dinner was excellent! The fillet-mignon I enjoyed was cooked to perfection! I highly recommend this place. Couple notes: They have a bar, Wireless, cozy seating areas (some next to inviting fireplaces), breakfast is served from 8am till 10am. Hope this helps inform potential interests in the place, cheers Heislers from Anchorage,AK

One of my top 5 (and really is #1) hotels I have ever stayed. Currently here for my Dad's 80th bday - third trip 2010, 2012 and now 2014. It is his favorite place to visit. The staff is amazing, the food is excellent and the rooms have old world elegance befitting such a historic place. A short drive from the lovely town of Clifden that has some light shopping, pubs and a general warm and friendly ambiance. Btw - I believe the photos are representative of the facilities - in fact this trip, i was in the bedroom from the slideshow - and many of my personal pics look just like the ones on the website.
