With a wealth of history behind it, it is one of the finest 4 star luxury castle hotels in Ireland, offering every guest casual country elegance, a superb restaurant, fed by fresh home produce and locally caught fish is complimented by an attractive old world bar and open log fires.

Ballynahinch is set in a private 350 acre estate of woodland, rivers and walks in the heart of Connemara. This luxury, yet unpretentious Castle Hotel stands proudly overlooking its famous salmon fishery, with a backdrop of the beautiful 12 Bens Mountain range.

Often described as ‘the jewel in the crown of Connemara’ this multi-award-winning castle Hotel encompasses late 20th Century comforts in a setting untouched by time. When you add Connemara Equestrian Escapes to the picture you get the perfect Connemara experience.

There is so much to see and do without even leaving the grounds of Ballynahinch Castle 4 Star Hotel Connemara.

The terraced gardens by the river, the walled garden with its labyrinth and tennis court and the ten kilometres of river and lakeside paths, provide the perfect environment for a quiet and reflective walk. As you stroll the grounds of Ballynahinch Castle you might encounter some of the other inhabitants of our area. Among the many species of wildlife one can expect to meet are mallard, teal, foxes, maybe a view of a swooping kestrel or merlin or perhaps if you are lucky you may glimpse the elusive tree dwelling Pine Martin. Every turn brings a new delight to discover and walking maps are available at reception. For those feeling a little more energetic there is the tennis court, bikes for hire and of course fly-fishing for salmon on the famous Ballynahinch River.
