It’s safe to say that we’ve all been dreaming of summer staycations for what feels like a lifetime, and the time has finally come to set those wheels in motion and get planning. Located just outside Clifden, the 4-star Abbeyglen Castle Hotel combines all the luxuries and comforts of the perfect holiday with exciting adventures that you’ll never forget, making it the ideal destination for a summer 2021 staycation!
From the moment you pull up onto the grounds of this magnificent hotel, the inviting atmosphere and friendly service will have you feeling right at home. Built way back in 1832, the splendor of this castle has certainly remained evident, enhanced by the surrounding natural beauty of the incomparable Connemara countryside.
Providing an array of special offers including everything from their Wild Atlantic Getaway to their romantic Couples Retreat Package, its their Hiking Getaway that’s caught our eye. Perfect for those who like to stay active and get the blood pumping, safe in the knowledge that they’ll have a comfortable bed to sink into at the end of the day, this offer includes a two night stay with a locally inspired 5 course gourmet dinner to enjoy on both evenings. With a hearty breakfast each morning and a packed lunch to keep you fueled, you’ll be set up to hike the nearby Diamond Hill and take in those incredible views. There’ll even be a champagne reception before dinner!
During lockdown, being in nature and lengthy walks have kept us sane (for the most part) and the team at Abbeyglen Castle Hotel know a walk along the Wild Atlantic Way is good for the soul. For those who don’t know, Diamond Hill is a national treasure of Connemara, located next to the village of Letterfrack on the 2000 hectare Connemara National Park. The well constructed trail through Connemara National Park climbs up to Diamond Hill’s summit (400m) and showcases the breadth of Connemara’s coastline. The sweeping views from the summit stretch to the majestic Twelve Bens, Mweelrea and Tully Mountains.
Waking up from a deep sleep in the luxuries of a 4-star hotel, taking in the unparalleled beauty of the Connemara coastline and enjoying 5 courses of the most mouth watering food imaginable? Yeah, that sounds pretty good to us!
