County Galway Apartment Rental Photos and Description

The visitors of the Ballynahinch domain, in the heart of Connemara, leave with the promise of coming back. The Old Manor overhangs the famous Ballynahinch Lake in a site steeped with history. At the origin, these lands were owned by the O’Flaherty Clan, Lords of Connaught. Famous personalities succeeded one another at the head of the domain like Grace O’Malley of the 15th century (The Pirate Queen of Connaught), Richard “Humanity Dick” Martin during the 18th century and Ranjitsinji Maharadjah at the beginning of the 19th century. At the beginning of the 18th century, a castle has been built by the Martins’ on the Ballynahinch domain. Later, it was converted in barracks and became the domain employees’ habitation during the Maharadjah era. Nowadays Restaured, the Old Manor offers the opportunity to rent a 4 stars three-floor apartment.

The spacious complex grouped around a yard offers a lake view, the Twelve Pins reliefs and forest.

What a beautiful place!

  • 5 of 5

Breathtaking, beautiful, peaceful. Ireland is a beautiful country, full of nice people and great food! And the Old Manor Ballynahinch in Connemara is one reason we will come back to Ireland. Jean-Paul is a lovely man. Thank you very much!

Laird and Lady O' The Manor

  • 5 of 5

What a breathtaking and peaceful setting for a relaxing 3 night stay near Clifden! We were traveling through Ireland for 9 days and found this to be the most AMAZING rental property so far. EVERYTHING was available to make our stay complete and as we took a walk around Ballynahinch Lake we truly felt transported back in time. Our last morning there was our 10th Anniversary and to wake up in these beautiful surroundings, we considered ourselves more than blessed to begin the celebration day here. The nearby town of Clifden had grocery stores, darling shops, and friendly pubs. Our favorite day was an impromptu drive on the Sky Loop, with sandwiches and wine on the beach. This area is so quaint and if you bend an ear, you may hear the Gaelic spoken in lively conversation. Jean-Paul was so helpful and communicative throughout the booking process and our stay: what a lovely man! We would definitely book this delightful Old Manor again.... And feel like Laird and Lady once more!!!

Our Irish Castle

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and I visited Ireland for the first time. We stayed 3 nights at the Old Manor and loved it. We wish our stay could have been longer. Very comfortable and everything we needed was provided. Our view of Ballynahinch Lake was lovely. Very quiet and peaceful setting. We would definitely stay here again on our next visit.

Nous avons passé un merveilleux séjour au Old Manor. Le cadre est idyllique et l'appartement très chaleureux et confortable. L'emplacement est parfait pour qui veut visiter le Connemara.

De plus, Mr Perrotton, le gérant, est très sympathique et d'une gentillesse remarquable. Frédéric et Marie.

Le gite est parfait, ainsi que l'hôte (Jean Paul), tout le nécessaire est fourni, le petit plus : les buchettes de tourbe.

Le cadre idyllique et la region fabuleuse.

Le seul problème, c'est repartir.

Un merveilleux moment hors du temps

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons séjourné aux Old Manor Ballynahinch entre Noël et le Jour de l'An.

Le site est exceptionnel, la vue sur le lac un enchantement de tous les instants et constitue un parfait camp de base pour découvrir cette incroyable région du Conemara..

Les logements sont confortables, chaleureux et très fonctionnels, avec une mention spéciale pour le feu de tourbe dans la cheminée.

L'accueil est parfait.

Nous ne manquerons pas de revenir dans ce merveilleux endroit hors du temps.
