Delphi Mountain Resort & Spa

Stunningly located on a 300-acre estate in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt areas of the west of Ireland and eleven kilometres northwest of Leenane on the road to Louisburgh (R335), is Delphi Mountain Resort, a sensitively designed hotel, restaurant, spa and adventure centre.


Since 2008 the resort has been owned and managed by husband and wife team Rory and Aileen Concannon, who emphasise its remoteness (‘no TV and limited phone coverage’) and aim to make it a complete away from it all experience for guests.


The main building is an environmentally friendly blend of stone and wood, and the comfortably furnished bedrooms (especially those at the back) have beautiful views; the suites have a loft bedroom over a downstairs living room and all have either a window balcony or patio and locally made organic bathroom products. In addition to the adventure centre and spa facilities, hotel facilities include a full bar and restaurant on the first floor (see below).


Conference/banqueting (60/80); free broadband wi/fi. Rooms 38 (7 suites, 10 junior suites, 4 executive, 5 family, 22 ground floor, 1 for disabled, all no smoking.). B&B €79-89 pps, ss €35. Hostel rooms also available for activity breaks. Children welcome (under 4s free in parents room, cot available free of charge, baby sitting arranged, kids club).


Spa (sauna, steam room, jacuzzi, massage, treatments); walking, archery, cycling, cookery classes. Equestrian, fishing (fly) & scuba diving all nearby.


Restaurant


The restaurant is open to non-residents for lunch and dinner all year except January, when the resort is closed. The main dining room is on the first floor in plain view and within, it seems, touching distance of the Mweelrea mountain range.


As in the rest of the building there is extensive, tasteful use of wood and a fine stone fireplace.  Expansive dormer windows fill the room with light.


The wholesome philosophy seen elsewhere in the resort is also reflected in the food, with menus based on local, seasonal produce, including fresh seafood from Killary Harbour.


A bar menu is also offered daily.

Restaurant open to non-residents L&D daily: Restaurant seats 50 (outdoors 12, private room 30). Reservations recommended. Bar food served 12.30-9pm daily. Closed Jan. Amex, MasterCard, Visa, Laser. abbreviations
