An Intimate 4 Star Irish Castle - Ballynahinch

Ballynahinch Castle, set amongst the rugged landscape of County Connemara, is an intimate 4 Star Irish castle hotel, with a charm and aura that are practically indescribable and must be experienced to be believed.

The castle hotel in Ireland and its interior are stunning, and I’d be quite content spending my time exploring and learning the ins and outs of every room, but if you’re looking to experience everything Connemara, Ireland has to offer, then I have a few suggestions!


The Galway landscape certainly caters to everyone’s tastes, whether you want a casual coastal ride or a high intensity mountain bike descent, full of challenges and adrenaline! I’m a bit of a mountain bike enthusiast, so I’m a little biased, but with bicycle hire readily available, it’d be a shame to miss the opportunity!


With over 70 casting piers on the local river, there is no shortage of opportunities for fishing! Anglers of all ages and experience levels are invited to experience some of the very finest fly finish that Connemara and Ireland have to offer.

Clay Shooting

For the complete novice who has never touched a gun, for an experienced shooter who would like a change of scenery, or for a corporate team building day out, the Connemara Shooting School at Ballynahinch Castle can cater to the needs of anyone and everyone.


The surrounding woodlands offer over five kilometres of woodland and riverside trails suitable for all. For those looking to step it up a notch, The Twelve Bens, a low peaked mountain range located a stone's throw from the castle, is the perfect opportunity to do so!
