From Andrew Harper:

Imposing castle-hotel in a 350-acre woodland park on the shores of Lough Corrib, 45 minutes north of Galway. Crenellated battlements incorporate the remnants of a 13th-century castle. Eighty-three guest lodgings on the estate offer mahogany armoires and well-equipped baths; request one of the more spacious Deluxe Rooms. Great Hall and lounges are accented by intricately carved mantels, landscape paintings and period furniture. Formal George V restaurant features modern Irish fare in an opulent setting; casual cottage restaurant; two delightful bars. Health/fitness spa, tennis, nine-hole golf course, fishing, sporting clays, equestrian center and forest walks.
