What a beautiful and serene place to stay. The hospitality was outstanding, and the food was delicious. The rooms were very quiet and everything was impeccably clean. If you want a peaceful place to get away from it all, this is it.

This old period hunting lodge was one of the highlights of our visit to Ireland. Our room was like a luxury suite which was located on the first floor overlooking a lovely garden and the lake We ate at the restaurant nightly and really enjoyed what the chef had on offer each evening which proved to be wonderful each time . We had our desert and coffee by the turf fire in the drawing room where we had great conversations with other guests ,and they seemed to enjoy the fabulous atmosphere as much as we did. The service was excellent throughout the lodge and the owners were especially helpful and were happy to have a lovely conversation with all their guests. We highly recommend this lovely lodge in the heart of Connemara and their great hospitality.

Excellent all around. Staff upgraded the room to the best in the house. Epic View of the mountains and lake to wake up to. Room fit for a King. Breakfast fit for a King. Living rooms with fires available as a bar area. Like stepping back in time.

Stopped here for three nights, should have done five. Make sure you get a lake view room. To settle in nicely start your stay with tea and apple tart in the living room. Would have loved coffee making things in the room. Friendly service, although the front desk is often unattended. Generally it has the feeling of an old hunting lodge. Nice art on the walls, and a good selection of books on the neighbourhood.

This is the second time in this hotel and am glad to say that it surpassed any expectation yet again. Arrived to the question "can we get you a cup of tea"!. The place is like being on a desert island for people that want to get away from the everyday distractions of busy life. Can't recommend it high enough and will be back again. Try the tea and scones while your there!!

My husband and I stayed here for only one night on our anniversary, but wish it were eight! Everything about this hotel is great: the location, the rooms, the service, the meals.....highly recommended. We especially loved the teas by the peat fires in the afternoon. We will remember this place for a long time.

Hotel is easy to find. Stunning location & classy/ beautiful premises. Staff were so very kind & friendly; they made us feel so at home, that we have missed them all since we left (& we only stayed 2 nights!). We will certainly be returning, as much to revisit the hotel & staff as the location itself. Rooms were all very well appointed & sensitively & intelligently decorated in an original/ authentic traditional way. Food at restaurant was remarkably good/ fantastic.

food and breakfast was "so so" and not very copious, that was my biggest complain and also the fact that there was no pedestrians footpaths around the hotel so you could enjoy the beautiful surroundings without having to take your car but that should not prevent you (or me) to go there again as it is still a good decent place even if indeed they're is still room for improvements

"Best Resort Ever"
05/20/15 docron2015 Austin, Texas
Just spent two night at the resort and thought it was the best in the area. If you want to relax, read, fish, enjoy the casual bar and eat great food, this is the place. They are extremely accommodating and the staff is very professional. Imagine comfortable chairs, three fireplaces and drinks/food when you want.

"A little slice of Heaven"
05/18/15 Therese B County Dublin, Ireland
We recently visited Lough Inagh. Maire, Dominic and the rest of the staff were so welcoming from the getgo. It's also dog friendly which is a bonus as we like to bring our mut with us when we can. The food is very good - would recommend you purchase their homemade strawberry and rhubarb jam, yum! Lough Inagh is truly a slice of Heaven. We will definitely be back.

"Fabulous return trip"
05/17/15 Sheena R Newbridge, Kildare, Ireland
Lough Inagh is a little piece and peace of heaven..from the moment you arrive, Maura, Dominic and the staff make you feel as though you're home, welcome to kick off the shoes and curl up by the fire in the drawing rooms or meet new friends in the cozy bar or just soak up the scenery while planning outdoor adventures. Our room was lovely and the bed enormous! This was our second trip and it completely lived up to our memories from our first visit two years ago.. Thank you so much..we'll be back

This hotel is so peaceful and the views are amazing. I think it may be the most relaxing place I have ever been. Beautiful country house with great staff. Myself and my elderly parents had tea and scones and the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Will definitely return here for a stay.

"Wonderfull site, lovely friendly place to stay."
04/08/15 Tomasdebhall Dublin, Ireland
I and a group of hill walkers spent two nights in Lough Inagh Lodge recently. The mountains all aroung the lake are spectacular and provide wonderful views for walkers. The hotel provised a warm and friendly athmosphere for relaxing afterwards. Dinner and breakfast was excellent. The management and staff are very friendly and helpfull. As they are from the area they are knowledgeable about access to the mountains. The cozy lounges with turf fires and the well stocked bar allow any stiffness to dissipate.

"A very special place - can't wait to return!"
12/07/14 KeriDublin Geneva
We have just returned from a pre-Christmas weekend in this wonderful place. From the moment we arrived late on Friday evening, we immediately felt welcome and loved the feel of the place - from the warm welcome, to the smell of the turf fires. Our room was very special, with amazing views over the lake. Without being opulent, it was just lovely. The food, from breakfast through to dinner, was superb. The menu was quite simple, nothing pretentious, from fresh crab claws and monkfish to beautifully cooked beef filet. The setting was just stunning - remote and wild, with a choice of walks around. What made this place so special was the old world simplicity and warmth. It just had the right balance. It's a kind of an ageless place and one that I cannot wait to come back to.

We spent a day fishing on Lough Inagh and had a lovely meal in the hotel in the evening. Colin Folan the fishery manager and Johnny the Gillie ensured we got fish and the there were a few pints drunk in the evening, I would highly recommend this hotel.

"Very Enjoyable Stay with a few Minor Setbacks"
11/03/14 adon1987 Dublin, Ireland
The hotel is based in simply beautiful surroundings in the West Coast of Ireland with several simply beautiful beaches a short drive away (however be careful you will need a car in this area - it is very rural and you will need to drive to get around). The main issue we had was when we arrived we had booked a treble room and specifically asked for three separate single beds which the lodge confirmed they would have, however on arrival we were presented with a room with a small double bed and a temporary bed (5 foot long) that would only fit a child. With all three of us being from 5 foot 10 to 6 foot this was obviously going to cause an issue but when we raised it with the staff they advised us there was nothing they could do although they were apologetic. After some complaining (on our part) they did manage to sort us out with a large double bed with a single bed in the same room which at least we could all fit in. The breakfast was decent although somewhat limited especially if you are a vegetarian (the fried potato cakes are not worth their place on the menu) andd the shower could have been hotter. The restaurant offered a nice choice of food albeit pricey, unfortunately the fish was overcooked for us which unfortunately is a very common issue in the West coast of Ireland. I must say though that the atmosphere in the lodge was extremely relaxing and I really enjoyed my stay but you are paying quite a lot for what you get.
