Connemara Sands Hotel & Spa is a Small, family run, boutique hotel perfectly positioned in the heart of the magical landscape that is Connemara.
Proudly hidden on the white, sandy shores of Mannin Bay there is no better place from which to explore Connemara and the Wild Atlantic Way.
We call this the Connemara Riviera. We are surrounded by blue flag beaches, aqua coloured waters and imposing mountains. Located in the unspoilt village of Ballyconneely, Connemara Sands Hotel and Spa is 10km from the vibrant town of Clifden and 11km from the picturesque fishing village of Roundstone, frequently voted one of Ireland’s most beautiful villages.
Offering superb accommodation options with newly renovated rooms, world class chefs and dining options celebrating local farmers, fishermen and ingredients, and an array of activities and unique experiences to suit all ages.​

Please note that the hotel is currently closed for the winter season.
We will be Reopening  on March 16th 2018!
