Relax and unwind!
The Maol Reidh Hotel, Tullycross is under new guidance from March 2018. We are found in beautiful Connemara, on the Renvyle peninisula, beneath the gaze of the mountains of Connemara and Mayo, within a few minutes walk of the sandy beaches of the wild Atlantic ocean. A short stay can involve a long itenary, or, conversely, a time to merely relax, unwind and chill out. Our emphasis is simple - enter our world and prepare to be minded.
Our rooms are decorated in neutral colours in line with the tranquil nature of the surrounding area.
All rooms are found on the first floor having a sea view or overlooking the enclosed courtyard garden below.
Each has large a comfortable bed with crisp white linen and a pristine private bathroom. Each room is individually decorated with carefully chosen furnishings, and they are completed withflat screen television, dvd player and tea or coffee making compartment . Complimentary WIFI is included
Our twin bedrooms have two comfortable beds, crisp white linen and a pristine private bathroom. They are each individually decorated with carefully chosen furniture, and are completed with features including flat screen television, dvd player and tea and coffee making facilities.
The Maol Reidh is just a few minutes walk from the beach and is situated on the Wild Atlantic Way, on Connemara's rugged coast. Just 10 minutes’ drive will get you to any number of beaches, to Kylemore Abbey, Connemara National Park and Killary Harbour. This charming seaside hotel enjoys views of the Connemara & Mayo Mountains, local boglands, and the ocean while been located in a country village setting.We offer modern, stylish rooms, free WiFi in all areas, a cosy lounge and an excellent restaurant and bar.
Our Iasc restaurant is proud to serve local fare, ranging from Leenane mountain lamb, west coast beef and local seafoods. We are delighted to work with local growers such as John Ward of Dooncastle Oysters, Bernard King who rears organic Leenane mountain lamb, Martys Mussels which are harvested along Killary harbour and Gabriels Aran Island goats cheese to name but a few. We pride ourselves on our morning feast -breakfast, it is important to get your day off to a good start.
Each spacious bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, a TV, dvd player, an iron, a hairdryer and tea/coffee making facilities.We have a library of books and films to pass away the restful hours.
Our bar is one in which to meet and greet over a beer, wine or any of our range of drinks. Or merely sit back, sip away and watch the world go by. Join in our regular musical and singalong evenings
So what can you do outside of our house - well tour the surrounding Connemara countryside, scuba dive, fishing in the fresh loughs or in the salty seas, boat trips, visits to nearby islands, hiking in the hills, trekking through the national park, romancing on the white sandy beaches, day trip to Kylemore, visit our capital (Clifden ), golf in Connemara links or Westport parkland. Swim, run, hire a cycle, chat and reminisce of days of old, visit our pubs in the village, view the Harry Clarke stained glass windows in the Church, well worth a look. Lots and lots to do.
