Zetland Country House - Connemara

Originally built as a sporting lodge in the early 19th century, Zetland House is on an elevated site, with views over Cashel Bay and still makes a good base for fishing holidays. 


Its unusual name dates from the time when the Shetland Islands were under Norwegian rule and known as the Zetlands - the Earl of Zetland (Lord Viceroy 1888-1890) was a frequent visitor here, hence the name.


This is an attractive small hotel, with a light and airy atmosphere and spacious public areas. Bedrooms are individually decorated in a country house style, and most have sea views or overlook the lovely gardens.


Conference/banqueting (30/75). Tennis, cycling, walking, snooker. Children welcome (cot available, €10; baby sitting arranged). Pets permitted by arrangement in certain areas. Garden.
