Ballynahinch Castle Hotel

Ballynahinch Castle is set in the heart of Connemara and stands proud and majestic overlooking the famous Ballynahinch River. The Castle has been intertwined in the history of Connemara and its people for many centuries, from the days of the O’Flaherty chieftains and Grace O’Malley to Humanity Dick Martin and H.R.H. the Maharaja Ranjitsinji. Open log fires glow in our reception rooms and all your needs will be attended to. Soft restful colour schemes harmonize with the natural charm of the surroundings in our tastefully decorated bedrooms. Ballynahinch Castle’s close association with the history of the area is reflected in each of its individually appointed bedrooms. Rest comes easily when surrounded by the casual country elegance that is Ballynahinch Castle.

Local fresh produce is used to create culinary delights in the dining room with its panoramic view of Ballynahinch River. Ballynahinch Castle is surrounded by 350 acres of woodlands, rivers and lakes, which offer miles of scenic walks. Ballynahinch Fishery is world-renowned as one of the finest salmon and sea-trout rivers in Ireland. Fishing is reserved for Hotel guests, and what better way to spend the day than casting a fly to tempt an eager salmon. Ballynahinch Castle holds sway over 13,000 acres of prime woodcock shooting. This driven shoot is highly-prized among discerning sportsmen, and the sparkling log fire in the pub is a welcome sight to the returning shooters after their day’s sport. Tennis, pony trekking and hill climbing are all close at hand and the Connemara Golf Club, 17 miles from the Castle, offers a fitting challenge to any golfer. The beauty and majesty of Connemara can be enjoyed to the fullest while staying at Ballynahinch Castle, which has an aura of its own that few forget and most return for.
