Welcome to Fairhill House Hotel

Situated in the picturesque village of Clonbur in the heart of Co. Galway
 
 
Welcome to Fairhill House Hotel and holiday rental self catering holiday homes, situated  in the pretty village of Clonbur, An Fhairche, the ideal location for holidaying in Connemara’s Gaeltacht, Co. Galway. Overlooked by historic Mount Gable and cushioned between the two majestic lakes of Ireland – Lough Mask and Lough Corrib, Clonbur is encaptured by the raw beauty of Connemara with Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way to the west and Ireland’s Hidden Heartlands to the east offering you the ideal base for exploring both wild rugged coastal scenery and the best of inland mountains, hidden valleys, lakes, bubbling streams, winter waterfalls and Clonbur Woods, the largest woodlands in Ireland.
 
Discover the Clonbur countryside in this stunning place of open space and unspoilt natural surroundings all topped off with the warmth of our village life and hospitality. Get active on our Walking Trails with Mount Gable to start, overlooking the village lakes,  Fish on Ireland’s most renowned western lakes with a local boatman and catch some world renowned Trout; fill a holiday with adventure at Petersburg Outdoor Education Centre – Kayaking, Canoeing, Sailing, Windsurfing, Gorge-walking, Caving, Raft Building and if that does not tire you out, try Hillwalking, Orienteering, Abseiling, Rock Climbing and the ultimate, The Obstacle Course Petersburg Challenge!
 
More ideas for your time with us - a farm visit with Sheepdog Demonstration is unmissable at Joyce Country Sheepdogs (as seen in the Movie Marley and Me), join a demonstration or class at Joyce Country Wool, or take a boat trip on Lough Corrib with Corrib Cruises – how about both! How about the Quiet Man Museum and Walking Tour in close by Cong or more adventure at Ashford Outdoors where you can enjoy Horse-riding, Archery, Clay Pigeon Shooting, Tree-climbing, Off-road driving, Zip-line adventures or visit Ireland’s only Fjord with a Killary Fjord Cruise.
 
To top this off, another recommendation close to our heart are our Whiskey Tastings (from our selection of 180 different types of malt) on your return to the Hotel. With so much to do, we will send you off for the day with a picnic followed by a hearty freshly cooked breakfast, and welcome you back to great food in our Restaurant or Eddie’s Bar, where we look forward to hearing of your days experiences out and about in this stunning Connemara landscape.
 
We look forward to welcoming you to our family run hotel, where we like to garnish your stay with a generous sprinkle of Clonbur hospitality. Let us create a wonderful time for you……
 
Eddie, Teresa & Team

A haven from the madness!

A real pleasure to have stayed several days here with my husband - the perfect base to explore Connemara! This hotel provided the perfect mix of genuine hospitality by terrific staff, peace and superb food. There was a great choice between the outside terrace, an atmospheric inside bar or spacious restaurant. Special thanks has to go first to Sally, our initial contact by phone, whose warmth and kindness over our queries about Covid set-up and precautions at the hotel, totally led us to try out this hotel. Throughout our 3 day stay, she continued to be a real beacon of charm and professionalism, but as a unique individual - a true asset to any hotel. Also, as we relaxed in the bar, Gerry, the barman showed incredible patience, compassion and humour which was so much appreciated and restored two weary travellers. Highly recommended and well done to all!

A really good little hotel

Overnight trip for weary cyclists. Safe storage for bicycles. Room was warm and comfortable with great hot shower. Evening meal in the bar was great with loads of food and perfect pints of Guinness. Good selection of breakfast options and wonderful full Irish breakfast prepared us for another days cycling. Very good value, very nice staff and definitely somewhere we will return to in the future.
