Large Luxury Home on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean in beautiful Renvyle
About Una Murdoch
Blackberry Lodge is owned by the Murdoch Family. We are an Irish family who have been living in the U.S. for the past 16 years. Connemara and Renvyle hold a very special place in our hearts and after visiting for many, many years we were thrilled to finally be able to build our "home" in Renvyle in 2012. We try to visit Blackberry Lodge as often as we can.
Una Murdoch purchased this House in 2012
Why Una Murdoch chose Renvyle
Connemara is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places in the world. Blackberry Lodge is located on the Renvyle Peninsula in Northern Connemara which boasts stunning vistas of the Atlantic ocean, the Mweelrea and 12 Bens Mountains and the Islands of InishBoffin, InishTurk, Clare and Achill Island.
What makes this House unique
Blackberry Lodge is unique in that it is a private home that is located on the grounds of the charming Renvyle House Hotel. It has been built and decorated and equipped to an extremely high standard reflecting the fact that it is truly a "home away from home" as opposed to simply a vacation rental house. Blackberry lodge provides the best of both worlds - privacy, space and comfort along with easy access to the excellent restaurant, bar and facilities of the Renvyle House hotel and it is a great base for exploring the rest of Connemara.

Absolutely beautiful home in a stunning place in the world. The proximity to so many hikes and to the hotel was perfect. Our kids loved the Renvyle grounds -- feeding the ducks, boating, tennis, fairy houses, playing football and swimming in the outdoor, heated pool. It's a perfect combination of hotel amenities and privacy. We definitely look forward to coming back next year.
Very comfortable and spacious
Lovely home. With every thing you could possibly need there for you. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. Spectacular sunsets from the fire pit area at the back of the property.
Blackberry Lodge is beautifully situated with wonderful views to the West and setting sun.
We had a great stay. The Lodge exceeded our expectations it has great space and natural light. Everything you would want was included. We had a mixed group coming and going over a two week period. This included grandchildren (3 under the age of 4) . The house is child friendly and very safe. The bedrooms and bathrooms are well designed and appointed.
One of the benefits of the Lodge is the use of facilities at the nearby Renvyle house Hotel. This includes a heated outdoor swimming pool, play area and indoor kids room. The Hotel is a 10 minute walk from the Lodge and has a nice Bar with good bar food and a formal Restaurant. There are other good dining options in Tully Cross (2 km) Paddy Coynes and the Maol Reidh Hotel, and in Letterfrack (6km).
There is an excellent beach (Tully Beach ) one kilometre from the lodge, excellent swimming there and not tide dependent. Glassilaun beach (6 km north) is exceptional and worth the effort to travel there. For wet days (and we had none) Kylemore Abbey, Killary Fjord and Clifden are good day trips.
Overall, highly recommended, a wonderful location, a great house and a perfect place to recharge the soul.

Beautiful property. Very nice to have the hotel and all its amenities right there.
Well appointed and maintained holiday home in stunning location
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will make sure to return!
Beautiful house. Great owner
This is a stunning house in a beautiful location. It is intelligently designed to the owners' specification. Everything is spotless and the accommodation comfortable. The open fire and wood burning stove add to the atmosphere in the evening. There is enough to do in the day and you will look forward to spending the evenings in front of the fire.
