The 18th-century country manor of Ballynahinch is set in a private 700-acre estate in the heart of Connemara, a beautiful, wild mountainous setting.

“There is much to love throughout Ireland, but I fell deeply for the area of Connemara, Galway, where dreams do come true. Doesn’t every little girl have the fantasy of sleeping in a castle at least once in her life? In a beautifully appointed room overlooking the river and surrounding woodlands, this luxurious and unpretentious castle hotel ticks all the boxes. Spend the day walking the miles of trails with a backdrop of the Twelve Ben’s Mountain range. Warm yourself by one of the many log burning fires before indulging in a special meal of local salmon soaked in Pernod and Irish whiskey, topped with trout caviar, pea tendrils and lemon aioli with a hint of saffron. The ambience is warm, cosy and as perfect a stay as I had dreamt of so many years ago.” Alison Abbott, Green With Renvy
