From the readers of Condé Nast Traveler:
This 13th-century castle—once a Guinness family home—has "idyllic, expansive" grounds with manicured gardens near the River Cong. While guest rooms "could use some renovation," public areas are "out of a museum." Dinners of County Mayo lamb and shellfish at George V require a jacket and tie and are "phenomenal and plentiful." Nearby Lough Corrib has fine salmon- and trout-fishing, while on-site falconry is "an unexpected highlight."
