The Fairhill House Hotel*** is located in the heart of Clonbur Village (An Fhairce), Connemara, in Galway's 'Gaeltacht' or Irish-speaking region.
It is overlooked by Mount Gable which offers visitors who like an easy climb a panoramic view of breath-taking beauty of the area. The effort to reach the summit is worthwhile because the views of Lough Corrib, stretching away to the South, Lough Mask to the North and the Twelve Bens to the West, are simply breath-taking. Clonbur (An Fhairce) is situated 1 mile from both Lough Corrib and Lough Mask, on the Galway/Mayo border, your gateway to Connemara.
Getting here has never been easier with Knock Airport (Ireland West) only 45 minutes away by car. Shannon Airport is a 1.5-hour drive with Dublin Airport, approximately a 2.5-hour drive using the motorway. Our Eircode for your Sat Nav is F12 KF22 and will bring you to our door. If using Sat Nav, please note that Clonbur is spelt Cloonbur Fairhill House Hotel*** - sure you know, you’d only find it in Ireland!
