Property overview

Killary Fjord Estate is a delightful 1830s country house and fishing lodge in one of the most spectacular settings in Connemara Ireland. It offers charming accommodation, glorious scenery, great food and total tranquility. Located in a wild and unspoilt valley of extraordinary beauty, the 1000-acre Killary Fjord Estate is one of Ireland’s hidden treasures. The historic lodge, famous as a holiday hideaway, is surrounded by the tallest mountains in Connemara and overlooks the lakes and rivers of the Delphi valley famous for their salmon and sea-trout fishing.

Accommodation

This beautiful lodge has 13 large comfortable bedrooms, one of which is a large family suite and three which can be either twin or triple rooms. The bedrooms (all with private bathrooms and superb lake and/or mountain views) are charmingly furnished. Downstairs, fine reception rooms include a cosy and eclectic library, a billiards room and a large living room overlooking the lake. A large dining room, a snooker room and three old world reception rooms with log fires all combine to ensure that our guests have a warm, relaxing and friendly experience throughout their stay.

Location

Connemara is the area of Western Galway & South Mayo bounded by the Atlantic & Lough Corrib. It is an area beloved by artists & poets who find magical inspiration in its wide-open bogs and towering cloud-capped mountains. Cottages nestle into hillsides where wild looking sheep with thick fleeces & great curling horns freely graze. The rugged coastline is punctuated with little fishing villages. Learn about the Irish Bodhran, the Irish drum in Roundstone and visit the Duc de Stacpoole at the Roundstone Art Gallery. Killary Harbour, a glacial fjord, can be explored on a local cruise. Kylemore Abbey, a Benedictine school, is amazingly beautiful and has a recently restored Victorian garden. Clifden, the capital of Connemara is known for its tweeds. Be sure to follow the Sky Road into Clifden, and if you have time visit some of the coral beaches out towards Roundstone. Letterfrack is home to Connemara National Park. Letterfrack Woodwork & Furniture College is in the village where students design innovative and quality handcrafted furniture. A private cruise on a very stable 36-foot motor catamaran to some of the deserted islands could be arranged. Heading west from Galway city, the villages of Connemara will stretch out before you like a colourful road map of communities and hidden gems just waiting to be explored. Each town or village has its own distinct character and local culture. The diversity of the landscape and the people who populate it offers much to you, the visitor.
