The Herons Rest

The Herons Rest boutique bed and breakfast is run and owned by Ballymaloe Cookery School graduate Sorcha Molloy. This artisan boutique bed and breakfast rests overlooking the Claddagh and Galway Bay in Galway City.

Each stylish bedroom overlooks the quaint and historic Claddagh Bay, home to Galway’s large mute swan colony. These spectacular vistas of Galway Bay and the Burren hills provide an ever changing landscape to enjoy.

Renvyle House

Renvyle House is a four-star, family owned, historic country house resort, first opened as a hotel in 1883 and is spectacularly located on a 150-acre estate on the shores of the Atlantic.

The grounds include a private freshwater lake, par three golf course, a beach, woodlands, gardens, and numerous activities on site, including tennis, croquet, outdoor heated swimming pool in the summer months, fly-fishing, canoeing, shore angling, and more.

The bedrooms vary in size and style but they all keep the features of the historic house. The characteristics are simple, clean lines and the use of solid Irish oak and furniture are apparent throughout. The fabrics and furnishings are, as much as possible, made and woven by skilled local craftsmen.
