Currarevagh House, Connemara, Co. Galway. Have recently constructed a brand new lakeside sauna, overlooking Lough Corrib. The sauna not only looks over the lake, it is actually on the lake within a boathouse so guests get the full exhilaration of jumping from the hot sauna in to the cold lake for a dip and swim. Currarevagh also have their own boats so guests can row on the Lough too.

Currarevagh is a graceful Victorian Country House, set in a 180-acre private estate on the shores of Lough Corrib in Connemara. Currarevagh offers genuine Irish hospitality, a timeless experience in a unique setting which has welcomed guests for 130 years. Peace and tranquillity reign, with elegant bedrooms and comfortable drawing rooms in a beautifully maintained historic house, all surrounded by majestic scenery and stunning vistas.

The estate is a European Special Area of Conservation with woods to explore, abundant wildlife to be spotted, maps to guide you on long walks, boats so you can escape to your private island and lots of space to unwind and retreat from the outside world. Currarevagh is perfectly located for Connemara and all it has to offer, the Aran Islands and Galway City, all along the Wild Atlantic Way.
