We have just returned from a 5 day stay in the Connemara Sands Hotel, two adults + a 9 and 4 yr old.
Therapy is the only way I can describe it. From the moment we arrived we were greeted by Niall, the manager, in a very genuine and friendly manner…

“Highly recommended”

We have never seen a family ‘room’ that has come close in comparison. It’s more an apartment rather than suite, with separate double room, twin room, living room and full bathroom. The decor, fixtures, fittings and furniture throughout the whole hotel are high quality and luxurious.

“We love it!”

We visited this hotel recently, with our little girl, aged one. The hotel is very family friendly, and the staff are extremely helpful and accommodating. The food in the bar and restaurant was lovely. The location was second to none, with a beautiful private beach just a couple of minutes walk from the hotel. We will definitely be back!

“Beautiful hotel”

Just back from a 3 day weekend at this lovely hotel. Location is magnificent, the most beautiful unspoilt beaches on your very doorstep. We were able to walk across the headland to some beaches you could not get to by car. All room looking out to the sea, ours was such a surprise…
