Spent 2 nights over Oct bank holiday weekend and it was excellent. Henry & co were extremely attentive and made us feel right at home. Dinner on both nights would give any top restaurant a run for their money.....anywhere that offers seconds will get a bonus point from me. The turf fire in the drawing room along with the afternoon tea made me want to lounge around for the day!!

The location is perfect for exploring the area. Drove to Kylemore Abbey and hiked up Diamond Hill which is recommend. If you have your hiking boots Henry can recommend a couple of 4-6 hr hikes near by.

When checking out I noticed they missed off a couple of drinks from the bill. Response was "we tend to miss one or two"....nice!!

Currarevagh House is situated on the edge of Lock Corrib with a beautiful serene view across the lake. We stayed four fabulous nights here. The house is a wonderful combination of old world charm and the energy of a young family who are passionate about everything they do. Henry and his wife Lucy along with his mother June offer a gentle and warm hospitality from the moment you arrive. The house is the oldest country guest house in Ireland and it is evident that this family know a thing or two about hosting and making guests feel relaxed and well looked after. Afternoon tea by a peat fire, wonderful walks on the grounds and plenty of areas to take a book and read. What makes Curraveagh House stand out is the food. An imaginative and delicious menu is displayed in the morning. The courses reflect fresh local ingredients that are in season and are created with flair, imagination and an amazing combination of flavours. We left Currarevagh with wonderful memories and will definitely be back.

Over the past 30 years, each time I go back to ireland I head to Currarevagh. I don't know of anywhere better despite being a native of Cork.

Stay at least 2 nights or you miss out. Beautiful place with many walks on the estate and nearby; the lake is amazing.

Multi-course, set-menu every night with superb world-class, modern, locally-sourced food. If it were classed as a restaurant would merit Michelin recognition. Decent wine cellar also.

Many unique features make the stay all the more memorable: gong for dinner at 8PM, table-side service, turf fires, huge warm, quiet rooms, quaint afternoon tea and gracious hosts with genuine generations-old hospitality embedded at their core.

No phones or TV in the rooms thankfully, but wifi is available in public areas if needed.

A good hub to explore the local area and the Burren. The village of Ouchterard now has several decent restaurants/pubs too. Good spot for walks, cycles, rowing or day-trips.

Looking forward to the next visit.

We have just returned from a weekend break at Currarevagh House. It is an amazing place, so comfortable and welcoming. It really is like stepping back in time and the feelings of tranquility wash over you from the minute you arrive. Comfy sofas, peat fires and delicious food, not to mention the spectacular scenery. It is really more akin to staying a a friends beautiful country house rather than a hotel. The decor is fascinating (think Agatha Christie rather than boutique hotel) and the food whether breakfast, tea or dinner were outstanding. We loved it and are keen to return to enjoy the fishing next year. Thanks to Henry and team for making it such a great weekend.

We have just returned from a wonderful three day stay at this absolutely gorgeous place. The location, the peace and quiet, the comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, the delightful owners and staff - and the absolutely fantastic food (breakfast, afternoon tea and dinner) - all made it a really unforgettable experience. We didn't want to leave - and can't recommend it highly enough. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: All lovely - we had room 8 which had a lovely view of the lake.
