Set beside the sheltered beauty of Cashel Bay in Connemara, Zetland House is the utmost in Country House elegance and boasts an international reputation for its fine cuisine.
Zetland House is set within graceful gardens overlooking the serenity of Cashel Bay on the Connemara coastline. Built in the early 1800s the house was a former sporting lodge owned by the Guinness Family and derives its name from the Earl of Zetland who was a frequent visitor to the house and Lord Viceroy to Ireland in the 19th Century.
Zetland House combines the charm of the classic country house with the sophisticated luxury of a modern boutique hotel. Offering elegant echoes of the past are fine antique furnishings, and fresh flowers adorning lounges and drawing rooms warmed by the flames from turf fires. While bedrooms are more contemporarily styled in a minimal sense yet in harmony with the overall style of the house. Rooms are extremely spacious and immaculately kept and boast splendid views across the lawns and out to the bay.

All of which are complimented by a varied selection from Zetland's imaginative cellar.
