Cashel House Hotel - Gardening Courses
Kay and the late Dermot McEvilly were among the pioneers of the Irish country house movement when they opened Cashel House as a hotel in 1968. The beautiful gardens, which run down to a private foreshore, contribute greatly to the atmosphere, and the accommodation includes especially comfortable ground floor garden suites, which are also suitable for less able guests (wheelchair accessible, but no special grab rails etc in bathrooms).
Relaxed hospitality combined with professionalism have earned an international reputation for this outstanding hotel and its qualities are perhaps best seen in details - log fires that burn throughout the year, day rooms furnished with antiques and filled with fresh flowers from the garden, rooms that are individually decorated with many thoughtful touches.
Experience the magic of Connemara and the mightiness of the scenery from the luxury of Cashel House Hotel. Climb a mountain, walk the strand or stroll in their 50 acre garden. They can arrange a guide to walk you through the beaches and bays or the rugged wonder that is Connemara.
Extremely comfortable rooms, the very best of Irish country house cuisine and 40 years of experience in knowing how to make our guests stay as enjoyable and as memorable as possible.
