Guest Reviews of Renvyle House Hotel
Chris Dunabin on 27-Nov-2013:
Taken as a whole we had an excellent time at Renvyle House (4-day stay in mid-November): a very welcoming atmosphere in a fascinating historic building, interesting art collection, good food and very helpful staff. Just a few corners of the building, eg the Library, need some attention. And we'd like to have been told in advance how meals were charged for.

This was our first visit to Renvyle as a couple and we now looking forward to returning there with our children. It's definitely a unique and very memorable place. We left there totally refreshed.
Margaret Broderick on 1-Nov-2013:
It was stress free and peaceful with wonderful food and lovely staff. Everything anyone could want for a relaxing break. Will definitely be back in 2014. Open fires and cosy sitting rooms. Table quiz great fun also!
James Watt on 22-Oct-2013:
Food was excellent. Young lady from somewhere in Asia who has worked for you for many years was excellent in all respects. She is genuinely nice and very efficient. Housekeeping was great. Reception folks could be a bit more pleasant and helpful. Some appeared indifferent and did not want to be at Renvyle. Nonetheless we have stayed at Renvyle many times and will continue to do so. The CEO or manager (Ronnie) is fantastic in all respects.

Service brilliant. Scenery splendid. Room comfortable with amazing views. Food was fabulous and we were impressed with the lengths the chef went to accommodate a special diet. We will be back!

A very friendly staff and homely atmosphere loved turf fire in the lounge.A shame the time we were there it rained so heavy we could not explore hotel grounds.
Bill OConnor on 22-Sep-2013:
we enjoyed it immensely understated excellence
Hotel Guest on 21-Sep-2013:
The most wonderful place to stay! Lovely staff - nothing too much trouble it feels like a big cosy blanket around you when you arrive at Renvyle. Enjoyed it so much for a 3 day stay that I provisionally booked again for a couple of weeks later but due to family commitments had to cancel. I can't wait to go back again sometime soon! Rooms lovely clean and such comfortable beds. Food is of the very highest standard with so many options to choose from. Big plus for me was it is a very dog friendly place to stay. Absoloutely wonderful!

Hotel, Staff, Food, Location don't know what to put at top of list as all first class !
Hotel Guest on 2-Sep-2013:
Very good welcome, nice facilities, clean and sufficient bedrooms (the B&B ones), pet friendly, beautiful surroundings, highly recommended for chilling week-ends or a week for discovering or enjoying Connemara. Only minor issue: waiting queue for the restaurant, very long, and not enough big area to make people wait (we had to wander around as we couldn't find any seat).

Some wonderful days with excellent food and a unique atmosphere in the most beautifull spot of the world. The amazing friendly staff and the evenings beside the turffire made me feel real home. Thank you all!!
Frank Downes on 19-Apr-2013:
I had a wonderful yet very brief stay. The smell of the turf fires on arrival; then being able to sit and read later in the evening was a great plus. The cuisine was exceptional and the gourmet dinner was worth its weight. Renvyle's biggest asset is its personnel and I have to say they looked after me exceptionally well. Added to this Ronnie was on hand to greet people thus making the whole expereince very personal. One night is far too short so awaiting my next oppurutnity to get to Renvyle. Many thanks to all!
Anne Walsh on 17-Apr-2013:
Renvyle House was beautiful, I wish I stayed longer than one night. I look forward to coming back for longer in warmer weather one day
Denis Broderick on 2-Apr-2013:
When you arrive in the car park at Renvyle and immediately get a whiff of the turf smoke, you just know your stay is going to be comfortable. Ours was. That turf smoke aroma came, as we later discovered, from countless fires: with the fires reflecting the warmth of the welcome and the service - with the latter as natural as, say, ... a good turf fire! Food has to get a special mention also, as it was a bowl of seafood chowder, taken many years ago to break a journey, that determined the need to come back - and to stay over for a few days. We were not disappointed. Our expectations were realised: all was well worth the wait. Many thanks to all. Cheers, Denis & Patricia Broderick

Accueil chaleureux, nombreux salons moelleux ou il fait bon discuter entre amis, personnel toujours disponible, excellente table, chambres spacieuses et confortables. Tout est là pour le repos et la détente dans un cadre cosy et décontracté. Nous gardons un excellent souvenir de cette étape.

Hotel Guest on 11-Mar-2013:
Food was fab but bedroom could have done with a make over, just seemed a bit outdated.
John Grace on 11-Mar-2013:
Wonderful relaxing holiday as usual. Excellent food, friendly staff, comfortable room and big bed. What more could you want? Our sixth visit and as good as ever!
Gabriel Alvarez on 11-Mar-2013:

Mary Moran on 8-Mar-2013:

Roderick Connolly on 7-Mar-2013:
Both my wife and I really enjoyed our stay in Renvyle House in terms of accomodation, food and freindliness. The craic was great and the other guests were a pleasure to be with. We used the opportunity to tour the lovely countryside and beaches nearby. It is ideal for photography.
Hotel Guest on 30-Mar-2012:
The hotel is comfortable and welcoming and grounds are great. The standard of food and rooms is very high. Breakfast only starts at 8.30 and while this is fine if on holiday if going to work the next day it was too late
Hotel Guest on 27-Mar-2012:
loved our stay at Renvyle House the food is fabulous and we like the old world charm its very relaxing will be back!
Hotel Guest on 20-Mar-2012:
Took my wife for a one night stay for a birthday celebration, only sorry we couldnt stay another night. Food was excellent and waiter service was the best we had come accross in a long time. for a country in recession the hotel should be proud of being able to still provide such a high standard at what was a very good price. Very cosy and warm atmosphere, had a sea view room which was nice and quiet. Would recommend for a de-stressing couple of days. Room was a good size, bathroom was a lovely connemara marble. Both said we would try adn come back before the end of the year.
Brendan Lynch on 16-Mar-2012:
from the time we arrived for our brief stay the staff, food and quality of our stay was just wonderful and great value.
Hotel Guest on 14-Mar-2012:
Renvyle is always a pleasure to visit. Relaxed and friendly it is always difficult to tear ourselves away from its cosy nooks and crannies to view the spectacular scenery and walk along the deserted beaches. Coming back to a fabulous dinner is a brilliant reward for a bracing walk. We keep coming back.
Marion Winter on 14-Mar-2012:
We have treasured our visits to Renvyle House in early spring for the last couple of years as it not only restores and feeds our bodies, but lifts our spirits with its warm welcome and homely atmosphere.
Tara Doyne on 7-Jan-2012:
Fabulous time-hotel was 5*. Kids really enjoyed the playroom-very relaxing for parents. Thanks!
Hotel Guest on 28-Nov-2011:
Enjoyed very much a mid-winter break here. ALthough the weather was mild for the time of year, homely scenes (setting of turf fires early in the morning and keeping them going all day) and the smell from these fires were most welcome. Suggested local walks and ones in the National Park made a perfect day out and we returned in the evening to exciting menues which were beautifully cooked. We were very grateful to have got, without any problem, any requests we may have made, therefore we have already recommended the hotel to our friends and family. Thank you!
Veronica O'Leary on 22-Nov-2011:
Recently, we have had the pleasure of our second stay at Renvyle House this year. The first was the self-induced hive of activity for our daughter's wedding, the most recent was pure chill out. This year and on all previous visits we have been meet and coddled in a "can do / will do" atmosphere that ensures the stay will be pleasant and calming, no matter the event. The wedding went off perfectly and all those practical issues that we, as serious planners, had forgotten were already in hand when we went "what about ....?" All our family and guests were blown away with Renvyle, as we were sure they would be. We really like arriving, to be met with familiarity of actually being remembered. The location, atmosphere, warm welcome, facilities, food & superb team of people will ensure that we are repeat visitors on a regular basis for a long time to come.
Finbarr Heenan on 18-Nov-2011:
Checked in at six with two lovely turf fires lit in the reception. Stayed in room 9 Which could do with a good cleaning. The room had been cleaned but only very Quickly. Didn't like the fact I requested a double room and was put in to a triple Not very romantic. The restaurant was great and really enjoyed our meal Relaxing by the fire for the evening was just what we needed. Only disappointing this was the room.
Eleanor Gallagher on 16-Nov-2011:
fantastic staff, nothing is any trouble to them,and everything is delivered with a smile.Love all the turf fires,the food is amazing. We can bring our dog , so we get to do all the great walks there. We look forward to returning soon l
Hotel Guest on 13-Nov-2011:
excellent experience. Very good value for the room & breakfast which was great.
Stephen Foley on 13-Nov-2011:
We had a fantastic stay. Staff, food and hotel were all top class. We both needed a chance to unwind and sen after just one nights stay we both felt the better for it. Speaking with other guests they had the same experience. Looking forward to a return visit. Ps the tomato and basil soup on the bar was amazing!
