Zetland Country House Hotel

Co. Galway


Zetland Country House Hotel stands on the edge of Cashel Bay in Connemara. In this untamed landscape of mountains, lakes and white sandy beaches, this hotel is an oasis of elegance and warm hospitality. The House, built originally as a Sporting Lodge in the early 1800s, derives its name from the Earl of Zetland, a frequent visitor in the last century. Today, the Prendergast family has recreated the charm and elegance of those days combined with all the sophisticated luxury expected by discerning guests.

All rooms are ensuite and include direct dial telephones, tea / coffee making facilities and satellite televisions. From the main reception rooms and bedrooms, you look over gardens rich in flowers, shrubs and trees, sweeping down to the Bay and Atlantic Ocean.
