A highlight of certain Vagabond and Driftwood Tours is staying in a castle hotel.

Abbeyglen Castle Hotel

The Abbeyglen Castle Hotel is located on the aptly named Sky Road. It's a truly breath taking location in the beautiful Connemara on the Wild Atlantic Way. It epitomises all things Connemara - rugged natural coastal beauty is abundant as you arrive to the colourful town of Clifden. Checking into the Abbeyglen Castle Hotel is always a highlight, from being treated like royalty on the queens throne to being greeted by Gilbert the resident parrot. Another treat is the complimentary champagne and canopies during a pre dinner gathering by the peat fire in proper lady and lord of the manor style. Watch out for Rogers heavy pour whilst enjoying a talk on the history of the castle and Clifden from Brian, who owns the hotel.

Abbeyglen Castle is renowned for its gourmet food, offering the very best local seafood and Connemara lamb. Enjoy the views over Clifden Bay during dinner, the entertainment will continue in the bar afterwards. The castle is a short stroll from town if you wish to enjoy some traditional Irish music in the pubs.
