Myself and my wife and adult daughter had a three night stay in the Kylemore Pass hotel staying in a very nice room with a double and two single beds with a wardrobe fitting that serves as a half-partition between the two parts of the room. WIFI worked well (a premium for my daughter!). Because of COVID there was a restricted dinner menu of one meat and one fish dish each evening but the food was very good and nicely prepared and presented and some nice wines available. The breakfasts were very good indeed witn a good choice including the full Irish. The hotel is in a fairly remote location about 10 minutes drive from Letterfrack village which is a nice little village with two or three decent restaurants and about 3 or 4 minutes further on there is a pier where you can get a very nice 1 hour boat train around the bay with beautiful views of the 12 Ben mountains as you come back in (see photo 1). Beautiful Kylemore Abbey is 5 minutes drive away and is well worth a visit (photos 2-4) and there is a stunning beach about 12 minutes drive away - Glassillaun beach (see last photo) where you can have a swim in the (cold) Atlantic and a decent walk along the beach. The hotel is clean, the hosts Stuart and Rose are friendly and very helpful, the hotel is very well decked out with curiosities and they are very well equipped for COVID. It is a lovely quiet place out in the wilds of Connemara and we will be going back again definitely. It is over an hour’s drive from Galway city and you can drive to Clifden, which is a lovely town for a walk round and lunch, in about 30-40 minutes. There is a lovely lake view from the front of the hotel though our family room (room 10) was at the side and harder to see the lake out the window. The rooms to the front seem to have balconies. Lovely break.
Stayed for one night while on road trip of Wild Atlantic Way. We were greeted by Stewart who was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. It was a Monday night and we were the only guests so we had attentive service. Our room was a twin with a view. It was the most expensive room rate we paid for our entire trip and the smallest room with a small bathroom but clearly the rate included a premium price for the view, which was beautiful. The hotel was very clean and we liked the character and ambience. Good on site car parking. We liked sitting by the fire in the evening and having a drink. We ate in the restaurant and had the Irish stew which was delicious and not over priced.
We would recommend but cannot comment on service when busy
Lovely hotel, rooms are big and clean, even had Jacuzzi bath in our room. The staff was excellent, always smiling an ready to help. the breakfast was tasty and fresh. Hotel is close to Connemara Notional park, so easy access for hikers, also close to a beach.
Stayed here one night, location and views from room were great. Private decking area was a bonus. Good food and very good breakfast. Inside was full of character and room was very clean. Will definately be back soon.
Stayed here for 2 nights and wish we had been able to stay longer. The inn is so comfortable. From the moment we walked in we were welcomed and made comfortable with coffee/tea and sweets by the fireplace. This inn also offers dinner (at an additional price) and has a small bar (which unfortunately we never made it to). Our room was small but comfortable. We did have a very loud group of tourists in the next room who decided to sing at 6:45. Wish the walls were thicker. Shower was small and low pressure, but the beauty surrounding the hotel is so spectacular, I was able to over look those items. Stuart was a great host! Close to Diamond Hill and Kylemore Abbey. Would most definitely stay there again.
