In the otherworldly limestone landscape of the Burren, with distant views across valley and mountain to Galway Bay, husband-and-wife team Simon Haden and Frederieke McMurray run their 18th-century manor house as an ‘absolutely top-rate hotel’.
On the most remote of the Aran Islands, a stronghold of Irish culture, Ruairí and Marie-Thérèse de Blacam’s sustainably run stone-and-glass restaurant-with-suites blends into the landscape, revealing ‘stunning views’ to Galway bay and the Connemara mountains.
Come back to Martina and John Sheedy’s small hotel, after a windswept walk in ‘wonderful’ Burren countryside, to enjoy a quiet drink by the fire or in the sunroom overlooking the rose garden – it’s the small touches that make the place.
