Renvyle House first opened as a hotel in 1883. It is an historic country house hotel, situated on the Wild Atlantic Way in the wild splendour of Connemara on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean. The hotel is located on 150 acres which include a private lake, a par 3 golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens and numerous activities on site. It is an award winning hotel for hospitality over the years with a warm welcome for every guest, delicious food and comfortable bedrooms.
Renvyle House was rebuilt in the Arts & Crafts style of the 1920's after the Irish Civil War. It is considered a building of architectural importance and, it has been the ethos of Renvyle's owners over the last few decades, to source bedroom furnishings designed and made in Ireland in keeping with the movement.
The bedrooms vary in size and style but all in keeping with the features of the historic house. The characteristics are simple, clean lines and the use of solid Irish oak and furniture are apparent throughout. The fabrics and furnishings are, as much as possible, made and woven by skilled local craftsmen.
