An absolute gem of a hotel & restaurant. Incredibly friendly staff, great value, comfortable rooms & food that had me eating here for the entire three nights of my stay in Galway/Mayo. I know it is marked three star but I would consider this five star for friendly & helpful staff and sheer value for money. I've stayed in higher...

Had one night here on the way to Galway for my husbands birthday treat. We had a lovely time. Mark the barman (although he does so much more) is a real asset to the place, making us feel very welcome. We ate our evening meal here I had the fish and chips, the portion was huge but the batter was...

On a tour, came here for lunch. Excellent food for all at our table. The fish and chips was the best of all- lightly crisply coated and fish falling apart! Service was super friendly and quick. Thank you!

We spent a wonderful week as guests at the Fairhill House in September, 2016. Their staff - Eddie, Leeann, Mark and Yan treated us like family from the moment we arrived.

Eddie and his team really make you feel at home. The food in the bar is excellent and Mark is your proper old fashioned barman, full of chat and a warm welcome. The rooms are spotless and spacious with all the required accessories.

Stumbled across Eddie's Bar - had to return again the second night as food and hospitality so good. Mark the Manager there couldn't do any more for us. He was great! Certainly worth more than just 50 Euro's more like 500 euro's I reckon!

Anticipating a few days in northern County Galway and the Connemara, we looked for a town from where we could travel both east and west. Clonbur was the town and the Fairhill House the hotel we settled on. We found it be an excellent place to overnight. The common rooms around the lobby were very nicely decorated. Judging from the...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Nestled between Lough Corrib & Lough Mask in Connemara, an area renowned for its rugged beauty & unforgettable scenery. Our family has been welcoming visitors to Connemara for over half a century now. Fishermen, ramblers, cyclists and visitors from all over the world just love the laid-back atmosphere here. Our 20 en-suite bedrooms are large & comfortable & our food is superb. We are told we serve some the best Chowder, Seafood and Steaks in Connemara, not to mention the lively music and craic we serve in our bar.New to Fairhill House Hotel is our membership with the Irish Whiskey Trail. We now have 150 different whiskies on offer, including the first malt produced in Kentucky since 1919, Pearse Lyons whiskey... distilled by an Irishman of course! It is without a doubt one of the largest selections in the West of Ireland. ... more   less
