"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
"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.

"Lovely family break"
08/19/14 act76 Dublin
We stayed in the Cashel House Hotel for a weekend in July for both my parents’ significant birthdays. The hotel itself is like stepping back in time in the best possible way. It is full of charm and character. The gardens are beautiful. The staff were extremely helpful and thoughtful. My brother had booked the rooms and they provided us with a fabulous family room for 2 adults, 2 children and a baby. We wanted a fridge for the room for baby food & bottles - no bother at all and it was all set up when we arrived. The food at the hotel was fabulous. When they came around and asked if anybody wanted more my brother who had ordered fish as a main course got a second helping of lamb which was like another dinner in itself the portion was so generous. I don’t know of any other restaurant with as many accolades as the Cashel House Resaturant has that would do it. For the kids they asked what they would like to eat and made it up fresh – and not a chicken nugget in sight! They even organised a birthday cake for my father and waited until our second night to produce it as they thought the kids would enjoy it. The first morning we came down for breakfast the high chair was set up for the baby already on a table that fit our whole party. We ate at this table for the weekend. Although we were there for only 2 nights it felt much longer as it was so relaxed. There are a lot of little rooms downstairs – library, bar, children’s room and lots of old toys that my 2 girls had great fun ‘discovering the house’. The owners were so friendly and so delighted to have us all to stay and to see a family going away together. In all there were 8 adults and 3 kids. I would have no hesitation going back again and would recommend it wholeheartedly.
"A gracious taste of old Ireland"
08/10/14 mary n Darien, Connecticut
We first stayed here 25 years ago and have been back on three of our recent trips, 2 times with other couples and this July as a couple. Cashel House is elegant with furnishings, paintings, and ornaments from an older gracious time. There are sitting rooms with fireplaces burning peat or sunrooms where one can relax, have a drink, or enjoy coffee after dinner. The food is excellent and both a fixed and a la carte menu are available - my starter of grilled shrimp with a butter/garlic/bit of pesto finish served in the shell was outstanding. The gardens have many specimen plantings and are welll worth a several hour stroll.
"A touch of the old days"
07/24/14 Ronald S Belfast, United Kingdom
Driving through Connemara still takes time. The Cashel Bay Hotel is for stopping in 1930s, 1950s even comfort, with well-furnished bedrooms and lounges (and enough of those} and that distinctive mixture of service and privacy which appeals to us older 'uns. The gardens are delightful and explorable and short trips to Clifden and Killary Harbour are packed with scenery and history. Dinner was first class; the breakfast buffet was elegantly varied and included when we were there fresh - really fresh and almost sweet - gooseberries, though the kippers bore the designation "local" rather lightly. We were there for a conference on the poetry of Ted Hughes at neigbouring Doonreagan and the hotel worked hard to help all the elements of our weekend to coalesce.
"The Grand Budapest Hotel"
07/23/14 Sure T Dublin, Ireland
While this family run hotel does have a sense of much faded grandeur, and this can be seen in the decor and facilities, this only adds to the atmosphere and the sense of having traveled back in time when you step through the gates of this marvelous place. The reception is warm and friendly, and in an unusual plus in Ireland, dogs are welcome. Our beagle had a great time chilling out in the bedroom or snuffling round the beautiful grounds and gardens. Dogs not welcome on the lounge, bar or dining room - which is fair enough. The owner circulates during breakfast and main evening meal talking to each table of diners in turn in a touch of personal charm that is very rare in the modern hotel industry. The food is good, with the breakfast in particular being amazing (all local produce, mostly homegrown on the grounds), and dinner being good but not incredible. The house wine was very good. Pay a little extra for one of the more upmarket rooms - you will have a bit more comfort. Scenery locally is second to none- great for walkers. Don't go here if you like efficient, modern up to date facilities. Do go here for a romantic couples break, some time out to write a novel, you like time travel, or just for a quiet get away from the modern world.
"Wonderful Relaxing Hideaway"

We stayed here for a couple of days. The atmosphere is wonderful. It is an old country house beautifully furnished and decorated. The staff are really friendly and helpful and the food is really exceptional. I would recommend this hotel to everybody.

The Cashel House Gardens were the most amazing wonderful surprise, they were far more extensive that first imagined and the love that has gone into the is palpable. Seeing them in June i think was to see them at their best, the roses were out the boarders were frothy with colour and the lawns immaculate. The Hotel itself felt a little faded grandure but that did not detract in anyway just added to its charms, we were greeted by very attentive staff and the lady of the Hotel was charming and spent some time with everyone during dinner. The rooms were spacious and had the best view of gardens and the bay and I did appreciate the warning of bitey things if you left your window open!!!! The weather was super, who's says it rains in Ireland??!!! Plus heaven if your a cat lover they were everywhere and charming too.
"Two days of heaven"
07/03/14 Diana_T_501 Marietta, Georgia
My friend and I spent two wonderful days at Cashel House. The room was lovely - overlooking the front lawn. Comfortable beds. Ample and quite delicious breakfasts. The staff couldn't have been more accommodating. Having driven from Dublin airport we arrived late at the close of restaurant hours yet they served us a lovely dinner and never made us feel that we were a bother. The gardens are world class; full of unusual plants in a gorgeous setting. Dramatic herbaceous borders in front of the house. The owner kindly researched the names of several plants as we were foreign gardeners and couldn't identify some of the plants. The hotel did have wifi and TV but at the same time we felt transported back in time to a kinder gentler time. I would very much recommend this lovely hotel to any type of traveler as a very special place to stay.
"bright till late"

Was visiting here with a group of people for a conference. Well the journey is worth it, an hour or so beyond Galway and no mobile coverage but then I was away from all that which was no harm. The room was excellent, with plenty of natural light and a warning about midges. Breakfast was cooked to order and the evening meal is a real treat if you like fish, would highly recommend.
"A good hotel with a few drawbacks"
06/19/14 DavidHBerkshire_UK Berkshire, UK
Lovely grounds and situation close to the water on Cashel Bay, and most of the trappings of a luxury hotel. A good, large, comfortable room and bed. Decent bathroom, good breakfast choices. I'd have expected a hotel of this stature to have a lift, and Wifi in the rooms rather than huddling round the small area in the public part of the hotel where it was available. We ate in Roundstone to get the early two course meal that the hotel doesn't provide, but on balance we'd say this was a successful stay.
"Lovely House & Gardens but..."
06/17/14 Hugh1942 Hertford, United Kingdom
We stayed overnight, D, B & B, in May. Excellent rooms; charming elderly lady owner; genuine country house quality of cutlery, mahogany (?) tables, place settings etc. But cold in both bedrooms & dining room and with the impression that both staffing and management were 'light'. Breakfast good, evening meal not. We were disappointed overall. Needs an injection of energy and investment for what is a lovely property in a lovely location.
