Fodor's Review

Built on a bluff just outside town, with a commanding view of Croagh Patrick, this sumptuous, traditional-style hotel has a mock-Tudor facade leading to a spacious lobby permeated by the inviting aroma of the open log fire. Rooms are accessed by wide corridors decorated with antique furniture and Irish art. While standard rooms are bigger than average, it is worth upgrading (from €10 extra) to a room in the newer wing: these are huge, with restful beige-and-cream design and plump sofas with reading lights. The location is blissfully quiet; even the plumbing is silent. Informal meals are served in the lounge bar, while La Fougère Restaurant regularly scoops fine-dining awards. Enjoy the panoramic view of Croagh Patrick and the town beneath it from the split-level salon as you breakfast: try the smoked-in-house salmon. Spa Salveo is a peaceful haven with a vitality pool and complimentary thermal suites, a great rainy-day option (open to nonguests).
