"Beatiful, remote location"
Large room overlooking the garden. Staff was friendly, effecient and knowledgable. The Connemara penisula scenery is very dramatic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Beautiful location, great service, nice rooms. Would highly recommend the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location is a bit off the beaten path but it was as though we were dropped into the time period of the Titanic and staying at a resort where the wealthy would relax. The hotel and rooms were very Victorian and the breakfast superb.Genuine Expedia guest review
"For a luxury getaway, this is the place!"
Beautiful house and grounds, attentive, friendly staff, welcoming owner...it was like visiting in someone's (very nice!) home. The hotel is several kilometers from the nearest town/village over the usual difficult roads, but the house and grounds are a destination in themselves, especially if you're a gardener,and we felt no need to leave them during […] our two-night stay. I would definitely recommend Cashel House Hotel to anyone looking for a truly luxe experience of country house living. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just the place to relax and enjoy"
This hotel was recommended by a friend who had stayed there over 10 years ago. It was apparently good then and it remains so. Highly recommendedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Dog Friendly Hotel"
Great location for touring around Connemara. Hotel is a great old world hotel with acres of gardens. We had our dog with us and he was made very welcome. My only minus is that the hotel bar is extremely quiet, a little background music would not go amiss.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Over-priced but nice"
Our stay here was just 1 night and although it was nice, we thought it was over-priced. It seems as though the reliance is on the house and its grounds to sell itself, however we found the staff and atmosphere quite cold, as was the shower, which took about 10 minutes to heat up! A little but of a makeover might justify the pricetag. Overall, no real […] complaints and the food was quite nice; however I don't think I would return for €160 a night.

Stayed here a few times for short breaks. Really good in all aspects. Great getaway. 50 miles from Galway. Great rooms, loads of space, nice gardens, staff are top notch. Owners are very hands on. This place is a credit to all involved here.

Just the two of us and Connemara great location easy drive from galway knew we were on to a winner from the get go ,what a genuine welcome from the owner. Hotel is full of real charm great rooms for relaxing in and catching up with some reading after a while you realise that there is something missing even in the bar No TV FAB ! However there is good wfi for those who must. Bed rooms are very comfortable and it is worth upgrading for the extra comfort room 46 for example Garden walk is not to be missed especially the view from 'De Gaulle chair ' .Staff very attentive throughout and the food in the restaurant is 1st class especially the sauces And so to bed and what do we find a cosy hot water bottle we are ready planning our return .
"Delightful weekend in Connemara"
11/30/14 Sally M Galway, Ireland
Ah lovely Cashel House Hotel in Connemara was a wonderful place for a weekend break in November. Fires in every reception room and a warm welcome from Kay set the scene for a one night break. Our room was spacious and comfortable, I loved the decor although my husband found some of the art work on the walls too much but the faded glory was charming and worked perfectly for us. We had a delicious dinner and good breakfast. The manager Ray and all the staff were really friendly and helpful. In the past the gardens were obviously magnificent and although it was Winter and they weren't at their best, it is clear that they are not as good as they once were. This part of Connemara is really worth visiting and the views from the top of Cashel hill are absolutely worth the climb - I've used too many superlatives already but go up that hill and drink the views they are intoxicating.
"A beautiful house and a genuine welcome"
11/30/14 Denise D
A stay in Cashel house hotel is both a relaxing and pampering experience. The beautiful gardens, fabulous food and excellent staff makes it a special place. The rooms are large and well appointed, the kettle is filled, plugged in and ready to go. A turn down service with hot water bottles makes for a cozy night. Blazing fires in the sitting room, hall, library and bar with a wide selection of reading material means you always have an excuse to relax and linger. The staff are friendly and unobtrusively helpful. We'll definitely be back.
"Charming but ........"
10/14/14 Focused_Trim Trim, Ireland
We spent two nights in this charming establishment set in beautiful gardens in a truly breathtaking part of Connemara although I have to also say that all of Connemara is ruined by the ugly telegraph poles which spread their never ending tentacles absolutely everywhere and ruin all of the otherwise wonderful photo opportunities that abound in this truly beautiful area. Be prepared for the fact that the hotel is in something of a time warp and if that is your thing you will not be disappointed because it is certainly faithful to the era it represents and the antiques, paintings and many leisure rooms, libraries etc. with open, and lit, fires, is authentic right down to the wavy glass we spotted on one of the landings! The tiled floor is waxed to within an inch of its life and looked splendid. We received a warm reception from the manager and the owner and our room was spacious, spotless and had the most comfortable bed of such magnificant proportions I almost had to telephone my husband in order to hold a conversation with him! The bathroom however was quite an experience. It was old which is fine but I found the bath, yellowed with age and rather uneven in tone, uninviting and it took at least three minutes for the hot water to materialise - in fact, I had concluded there wasn't any until my husband patiently pointed out that I needed more patience.... A small quibble and given the age of the hotel perhaps understandable but I do like my modern conveniences even in older establishments. We arrived late afternoon and felt like a sandwich to tide us over until dinnertime and really enjoyed the home cooked thick sliced and delicious ham which we had served in the lounge with a delightful pot of tea served in fine bone china cups the like of which I have not seen since I was a child and on fine linen, I mean where would you get that these days. The gardens are well worth a stroll around but we didn't see them at their best as it was Oct and many of the displays were dying off but they were well planned and imaginative and must be spectacular in season. The dining room is delightful with well spaced tables and a delight at night time to have the gardens illuminated. The food, well, I hate to say it but it was unremarkable. I had halibut and it was a revelation to know that there are halibut so small swimming around. Otherwise it was well presented and my husband was very happy with his shank of lamb which was also on the small side but this was compensated for by an offer, without him asking, of a second portion which was huge. It was a delightful evening despite the indifferent food. Afterwards we took ourselves to the lounge which I know was designed by some apparently well known designer but quite frankly it was uncomfortable and badly planned. The front part featured really tatty looking seating which bore an alarming resemblance to some kind of garden furniture, i.e. plastic, with cushions and while it seemed to suit a conservatory setting it just looked cheap and nasty. I really do not want to be offensive, I hope this will be taken as constructive criticism in the spirit of "might as well say it as think it". The staff were exceptionally pleasant and friendly. However, we ordered the house wine and were struck dumb by the fact that it arrived at our table already opened and accompanied by the comment "your white house wine sir", the stress being on the word "house". When we queried this we were told the manager always opens the house wine before it arrives at the table and when he enquired about our meal he explained that as the house wine is chosen by the hotel this is the normal practice. Which made no sense whatsoever since all of the other (very expensive) wines were also chosen by the hotel but did not receive this unnerving distinction. We did enjoy our two nights in this charming hotel, despite the criticism but it is far too expensive for what it offers. We commented afterwards that for the money we left we could have done so much better elsewhere. Old is beautiful and charming but some observation of the times we currently live in need to be observed.
"Lovely break in Connemara"
10/14/14 John G Inistioge, Ireland
My wife and I had our first trip away sans kids for many, many years and what a lovely place we chose to visit. Cashel House Hotel stands near the shore of a beautiful bay and offers a really peaceful environment to visitors. Our large room was in the newer part of the building but still in keeping with the older house. We were well looked after during our stay and the hotel is the perfect base to explore the Connemara region.
"Wonderful find in the middle of nowhere"
10/07/14 james f Grand Rapids, Michigan
Our group stayed near here, and stopped in for dinner one evening. This is a very charming, old Inn, and our meal was great! It would be a wonderful romantic place to stay. There are lots of outdoor activities nearby, and the Connemara Golf Club is great.
"A perfect retreat"
10/06/14 Jean D Ireland
We spent Christmas 2013 in Cashel House Hotel. From the moment we arrived, we were 'at home'. Wood fires, nooks and crannies, fabulous rooms, wonderful food, and a personal touch second-to-none. This is a dog-friendly hotel. Our little JRT, Maggie, was made every bit as welcome as we were. The personal touch was everywhere. Kay came to every table, at every meal, to make sure that all was well. Everything was not just well, it was perfect. Beautiful table silver, china, linens etc. All the little touches that are missing in so many hotels these days. This was 'olde worlde' comfort and hospitality. Santa Claus even paid us a visit! We are looking forward to returning to Cashel House Hotel for Christmas 2014.
"Ireland at it's best"

Stayed 4 night Sept 21014. Service and hospitality was outstanding; and food (especially dinner) was the best we had while in Ireland. Beautiful grounds, large This is our 3rd trip to the Connemara area and we highly recommend the Cashel House to use for your base. Bob D.
"Loved it with one small exception"
09/10/14 KatherineK54 Ghent, New York
We had a wonderful 3 night stay in August 2014. The room was comfortable, the service very friendly, and the restaurant quite good. Our one issue is the overly scented laundering of their sheets, towels and napkins. It's so string that I had some trouble sleeping, and at dinner I could smell it over my food. Please change detergents! The garden is lively too! I would stay again.
