Set on a 700-acre estate, this impressive castle hotel encompassing a renowned salmon and trout fishery is a 15-minute drive from the town of Clifden. The 48 individually decorated lodgings feature elegant wallpapers, plush carpeting, muted fabrics and dark wood furniture. The more spacious and contemporary suites in the two riverside wings are recommended. Dining options include gourmet Owenmore, which affords unforgettable river views, and the convivial Fisherman’s Pub & Ranji Room, adorned with a copper-hooded fireplace and mounted trophy salmon, serving seasonally inspired regional dishes. The hotel can arrange for private boat tours; grouse, woodcock and clay shooting lessons; guided woodland, lakeshore and riverside hikes; and fly-fishing tutorials.
