- Leenane Hotel
The finest view in Ireland overlooking stunning Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only fjord.
Leenane (the place of the tides) is situated on Killary Harbour in the heart of Connemara. One of the most beautiful natural harbours in the world, Killary stretches 10 miles from the open Atlantic to the mouth of the River Erriff with its superb waterfall.
The Leenane Hotel’s position makes it, without doubt the best centre for exploring Connemara, the most romantic and unspoiled region of Ireland. For the motorist, there are hundreds of miles of excellent and uncrowded roads winding through spectacular mountain scenery.
Also available at the Leenane Hotel are Connemara’s only saltwater seaweed baths. Immerse yourself in piping hot saltwater and natural seaweed while enjoying the stunning views overlooking Killary Harbour. Complete this rejuvenation by enjoying a steamroom and sauna.
A new all weather luxury catamaran has recently been launched on the Killary and sails four times daily (90 minute cruises) around the bay. There are also two adventure centres and an equestrian centre within a few miles of the hotel for those with a thirst for the outdoors. Hillwalkers are spoilt for choice as the hotel is set at the foot of the famous Western Way and at the centre of the Maamturk Mountains. The harbour (2 minutes walk from
the hotel) is very suitable for sailing, yachting and water skiing. Adjacent to the hotel lies 8 yacht moorings for those who decide to come by boat. For those who simply come to relax there are the splendid sandy beaches, the brilliant gorse, fuchsia and rhododendron hedges, the renowned hotel flower garden and the soft ever changing light of Connemara.
The Leenane Hotel, a two hundred and twenty year old coaching inn which has been carefully modernised and refurbished offers you a friendly atmosphere, every comfort and excellent locally produced food.
The hotel’s 66 bedrooms have every possible modern accessory while retaining the character of bygone days and all have spectacular views of Killary Harbour or the Connemara Mountains.
