The Orchard at Renvyle House Hotel & ResortThe gardens at Renvyle are all coming in to their own.  The Orchard is in full blossom, we're hopeful for a bounty of fruit in the autumn.  The Herb Garden and  Fruit Garden are all doing very nicely.

We even have a couple of olives on our olive tree this year which was a lovely surprise after the blustery winter we experienced.

The seaside planting continues and the beds in the horseshoe garden and to the front of the house are doing very well and we hope to have a great array of colour coming into June.

young guests at the top of the Diamond in the Connemara National ParkWe would like to take this opportunity to wish you and all dear to you a very Happy New Year with our best wishes for 2014.

In between the windy-wet days here at Renvyle House Hotel and Resort over Chrstmas, we've also had some 'gems' of days for our guests to head out walking.  One of the favourite choices is walking the Diamond in the Connemara National Park.  It is a wonderful faciltity less than 10 minutes from Renvyle House.  There are beautiful beaches within walking distance of the hotel; great, white strands to walk and blow all the cobwebs away.

 Within our website we have a few walks around the area which are suitable for almost everyone including around the Renvyle Peninsula and by Tully mountain.

Pink Footed Goose

Pink Footed Goose is Welcomed at Renvyle's Rusheenduff LakeThe Pink Footed Goose Receives a Warm Welcome at Renvyle House's Rusheenduff Lake

We have a very special visitor staying with us at the moment.  It has received a great welcome from our gaggle and it loving the Irish hospitality afforded at Renvyle House!


The Pink-footed Goose (Anser brachyrhynchus) is a scarce visitor to Ireland associating with other wintering geese such as Greylag and White-fronts.  It breeds in eastern Greenland, Iceland and Svalbard. It is migratory, wintering in northwest Europe, especially Great Britain, the Netherlands, and western Denmark. The name is often abbreviated in colloquial usage to Pinkfoot (plural Pinkfeet).


It is a medium-sized goose, 60–75 cm (24–30 in) long, the wingspan 135–170  (53–67 in) cm, and weighing 1.8–3.4 kg (4–7.5 lbs). It has a short bill, bright pink in the middle with a black base and tip, and pink feet. The body is mid grey-brown, the head and neck a richer, darker brown, the rump and vent white, and the tail grey with a broad white tip. The upper wing-coverts are of a somewhat similar pale bluish-grey as in the Greylag Goose, and the flight feathers blackish-grey. The species is most closely related to the Bean Goose Anser fabalis (having even been treated as asubspecies of it at times in the past), sharing a similar black-and-coloured pattern bill, but differing in having pink on the bill and legs where the Bean Goose is orange, and in the paler, greyer plumage tones. It is similar in size to the small rossicus subspecies of Bean Goose, but distinctly smaller than the nominate subspecies fabalis. It produces a medley of high-pitched honking calls, being particularly vocal in flight, with large skeins being almost deafening.[2]

There are two largely discrete populations of Pink-footed Goose. The Greenland and Iceland population winter in Great Britain, while the Svalbard population winters in the Netherlands and Denmark, with small numbers also in Norway (where it is common on migration), northern Germany, and Belgium.

The Wild Atlantic Way will be Ireland’s first long-distance route, with the spine of the route stretching from the Inishowen Peninsula in Donegal to Kinsale in Cork.  A variety of looped itineraries off the spine are also planned to further develop the experience for visitors.

This route will be well signposted with a number of 'Discovery' and 'Viewing' points which will be carefully incorporated along the way, enticing the traveller to explore more.  Fáilte Ireland have said that work is already well underway with the project being launched in March 2014.

One of these Discovery and Viewing points will be on the Renvyle Penisula and the Connemara Loop will feature as an additional itinerary off the main route.

With adventure tourism on the increase and time-poor travellers looking for new experiences, we feel the Wild Atlantic Way will have something to suit everyone and there is a lot to offer on the Renvyle Peninsula and coastal villages close by.
