Bar Lunch at Ballynahinch Castle

February 14, 2009

Ballynahinch Castle never disappoints!  Not only is the location superb with fabulous views over the river and  mountains but the food in the bar is always good  (Sadly I can’t speak for the accommodation because I stay with family in the area).

Unlike many new hotels around the countryside that all seem alike (in fact, once in these hotels you could be anywhere in the world), this hotel has retained its original charm from decades ago.  Guests and local fishermen, gillies etc all mingle together in the cosy bar in front of a roaring fire.  There is nothing like a hearty soup and a plateful of sandwiches after a day’s activities in Connemara.  There are loads of fun walks nearby, either in the woods or along the beach at Dogs Bay near Roundstone.

Even if you don’t plan to stay here, drop by and have a drink and a snack at the bar.  You’ll love it!!
