WHAT WE LOVE...

A grand hotel housed within an attractive 18th-century country mansion, there are acres of land to explore and a vast and diverse offering of countryside pursuit activities - from fishing to falconry - or you can simply relax in their movie theatre. Galway City is easy to get to from the hotel for more restaurant options as well as traditional Irish pubs, though the food in-house is good and a dinner in their Pullman restaurant within original Orient Express carriages is a must, not only for the fine dining food but also the cocktails; we'd recommend the Irish Mule. Accommodation is chic whilst being comfortable and boasts views of either the lough, or gardens, or both.

THE DETAILS

Location

Just walking around the grounds was a joy in itself, and lovely to have on the doorstep.

Galway city centre isn't too far by car - check out the traditional Irish pubs, art galleries and shops. Or head to Connemara for the beaches and glorious Irish coast.
By plane: flights from Birmingham and Edinburgh take 1 hour 15 minutes, and 1 hour 30 minutes from London to Shannon. It's over an hour's drive to the hotel. Free parking on-site. skyscanner.net
