Our Inspector's View

This lovely manor house, formerly the ancestral home of the Earl of Arran, is set in wonderful parkland at the head of Belleek Wood on the River Moy estuary. The cosy public lounges are welcoming, and are complemented by a series of banqueting suites that are decorated in a nautical theme based on the Spanish Armada. Bedroom accommodation varies in style; all rooms are comfortably appointed. Dinner is the highlight of any visit, offered from a choice of tasting and à la carte menus. The food is all locally sourced, and the chef has a keen eye for seasonality. Look out for the Jack Fenn's Courtyard Cafe. The hotel is a popular wedding venue. There is also a museum specialising in armoury and memorabilia from the Spanish Armada.

About The area

Discover County Mayo

County Mayo is the third largest county in Ireland and is named after the village of Mayo, which these days is known as Mayo Abbey and has a population of less than 500. The county town is Castlebar, which is significantly larger at around 10,000. Mayo is a remote, sparsely populated county with a landscape of boglands, lakes and mountains. Among its many islands there are some real gems. Achill Island is reached by a small causeway, and is the largest of Ireland’s islands. Its economy depends mainly on tourism as little of it can be cultivated, being mostly mountain or bogland.

The cliffs at Keel have weird rock formations, and boats can be hired to get the most of the dramatic scenery. There are also plenty of stone circles and dolmens dotted about inland.

Clare Island is in Clew Bay, and rises to a height of around 1600 feet (500m). It is popular with walkers, anglers, sailors, divers and nature watchers; wildlife includes dolphins, seals, otters, and the rarely sighted chough. A square tower on the island was the HQ of Grace O’Malley, the 16th-century pirate who declared herself Queen of Clew Bay.
