Good Hotel Guide Review

A traditional Irish country house atmosphere fills this creeper-clad Georgian mansion overlooking the quay of a heritage town on the shores of Clew Bay. It has been owned, and impeccably maintained, by Kieran Thompson since 1985. High-ceilinged public rooms are hung with artworks; there are plenty of books to browse, and the ‘lived-in’ fireside sofas on which to read them. Traditional bedrooms are spread across the main house and two smaller courtyard buildings (one of which was the holiday home of the late Seán Lemass, former taoiseach of Ireland). In the gracious dining room, French-influenced dishes are cooked using local produce – fish and shellfish from the bay; Irish beef and farmhouse cheeses. A special place for fisherfolk, the house has extensive fishing rights on the river; basket lunches and, later, freezing and smoking facilities can be arranged. 7 miles N of Westport.
