Our family has been welcoming visitors to Connemara for over half a century now. Fishermen, ramblers, cyclists and visitors from all over the world just love the laid-back atmosphere here. Our 20 en-suite bedrooms are large & comfortable & our food is superb. We are told we serve some the best Chowder, Seafood and Steaks in Connemara, not to mention the lively music and craic we serve in our bar.New to Fairhill House Hotel is our membership with the Irish Whiskey Trail. We now have 150 different whiskies on offer, including the first malt produced in Kentucky since 1919, Pearse Lyons whiskey... distilled by an Irishman of course!

2nd time to stay here, 2 nights B&B, allocated a lovely room with balcony with great views. Whilst there was a lot of positives to our stay like the lovely food including great breakfast and location I felt it wasn't as enjoyable as our previous stay due to the attitude of the staff. The bar staff are not very friendly and one barman in particular is downright abrupt even borderline rude. I am sure the owner is well aware by now of this as he is usually hovering in the background.

Overnight trip for weary cyclists. Safe storage for bicycles. Room was warm and comfortable with great hot shower. Evening meal in the bar was great with loads of food and perfect pints of Guinness. Good selection of breakfast options and wonderful full Irish breakfast prepared us for another days cycling. Very good value, very nice staff and definitely somewhere we will return to in the future.

Stayed here recently for one night as we were in the area. Awful experience from the moment we stepped inside the place. Unfriendly welcome at reception by very unwelcoming man. Went to hotel room, very basic 3 star room which is OK as we werent expecting fancy. Turned on TV to find it not working. No tea or coffee facilities in room which is a basic expected amenity in a hotel. Tried calling reception five times to enquire... No answer at reception, just rang out. Went down to reception nobody there.. Went into bar spoke to very rude barman and told him about the TV and lack of tea coffee. Apparantly because of Covid-19 hotels cannot offer any tea or coffee in rooms. He rudely asked me what time we would leave the room so someone could check the TV. His attitude was hostile and totally unfriendly. A few minutes later the manager came up to fix TV.. There was no small talk or apology he just went to another room got another tv and plugged it in. We were shocked by the lack of apology and hostility. The shower was broken and sprayed water all over the bathroom which meant my partner had a one minute cold shower. Breakfast next morning was very basic, young kids working there with no experience. Would never stay here again, probably the worst hotel experience we have ever had myself and my partner both agreed. Zero points.

I have stayed in this place a few times in the past & have always enjoyed my stay. This is the first time I stayed with the HA. I just called in the afternoon & fortunately got through to Eddie, the host with the most. Not alone did he have a room but he gave us a 'King' room with spacious balcony with lovely views of the countryside & the mountains in the distance. Covid 19 precautions were in evidence throughout & that was reassuring.we decided to eat in the hotel bar & our waitress was the lovely Aoife who was friendly & pleasantly efficient. The evening was so pleasant that we requested & got an outside table. The food met the usual high standards but there were a few little glitches with the service. The HA got the wrong dish & it took an inordinate time to get the correct one. Also I had to reorder because my original choice was unavailable. However we were very happy with the quality when matters were sorted. The proprietor, Eddie, was keeping a watchful eye on all the activities. We had a very restful night in our lovely room & enjoyed a hearty breakfast before we checked out. The receptionist who checked us out was obviously multitasking because she was also our waitress at breakfast. Her name was Yulia & she was friendly, pleasant, helpful & quietly efficient. We will be happy to recommend this place to our friends & we will look forward to staying there again next time we are in the area.

A real pleasure to have stayed several days here with my husband-the perfect base to explore Connemara! This hotel provided the perfect mix of genuine hospitality by terrific staff, peace and superb food. There was a great choice between the outside terrace, an atmospheric inside bar or spacious restaurant. Special thanks has to go first to Sally, our initial contact by phone, whose warmth and kindness over our queries about Covid set-up and precautions at the hotel, totally led us to try out this hotel. Throughout our 3 day stay, she continued to be a real beacon of charm and professionalism, but as a unique individual-a true asset to any hotel. Also, as we relaxed in the bar, Gerry ,the barman showed incredible patience, compassion and humour which was so much appreciated and restored two weary travellers. Highly recommended and well done to all!
