Renvyle House is a historic country house hotel, situated in the wild splendour of Connemara on the shores of the Atlantic Ocean.

The hotel is located on 200 acres which include a private lake, a 9-hole golf course, 1km of beach, woodlands and gardens. Over several centuries, Renvyle House has been built, pulled down, rebuilt, burned to ashes and rebuilt once again. A chieftain of one of the oldest and most powerful Gaelic clans in Connacht once lived here.

It was also the home of Oliver St. John Gogarty (Buck Mulligan of James Joyce's "Ulysses") and, since becoming a country house hotel in 1883, Renvyle House has played host to many famous people - Augustus John, Lady Gregory, Yeats and Churchill among them.
