Delphi Lodge

  • Fodor's Choice


  • Beautiful secluded location
  • Abundant peace and quiet


  • You've got to like fishing or walking—and your fellow guests

Fodor's Review

In the heart of what is arguably Mayo's most spectacular mountain and lake scenery, 5 km (3 miles) east of Leenane off N59, this attractive Georgian sporting lodge heavily stocked with fishing paraphernalia has a lovely lakeside setting. General manager Michael Wade is a valuable storehouse of information and stories. Fishing is the main attraction, but guests also come for the peace and quiet, or like England's Prince Charles, to sketch the scenery. Victorian antique furniture, floral curtains, and wonderfully comfortable beds fill the bright, spacious bedrooms, some with lake views. TV presence is minimal: there's one in the snooker room. Guests dine together ($$$$) at a long oak table; there's an excellent wine list and a self-service bar. There are also cottages (one with TV), which require a three-day minimum stay.
