Hotel for 2 night relaxing break

    Hi,
    I've hit a bit of analysis-paralysis, am looking for hotel in West (living in Galway) for 2 night break. My wife is pregnant, looking for a relaxing break. A pool would be nice (not essential) places for short walks, outside seating in gardens, nice lounging area, nice food.
    • Radisson Sligo
    • Ice House, Ballina
    • Hodson Bay
    • Dunraven Arms
    • Cromleach Lodge
    • Knockranny House
    • Radisson Farmham Estate (not West but great reviews)
    • Mustard Seed, Ballingarry

    Any recommendation from above or elsewhere please?
    I like the idea of somewhere relaxing but close enough to a town if we want a little bit of life.
    Wineport Lodge is full.

    Ice House is meant to be lovely but true to say there's no grounds around it? I like the idea of somewhere where we can go for a stroll. Or are there places nearby it for walking?

    Stayed in Radisson Sligo before and liked it, have beach, town nearby.

    Cheers,
    Pa.

    Ballynahinch Castle.

    Recently re-opened after a renovation, so I'm assuming it's even lovelier than when I stayed there a few years back.

    Utterly, utterly relaxing and beautiful. And some of the best food I've ever eaten.

    ETA - just read your post properly. Ballynahinch would fall down on the town-nearby criterion. But you wouldn't want a town it's so beautiful there!

    Also, yes, no grounds in the Ice House. Enniscrone is nearby with a fabulous beach though....

    Cheers, checked them earlier but not available.
    Greegans in Ballyvaughan looks lovely too crazy prices.

    Three Connemara hotels. All relaxing, quiet, restful etc. But none are near a town!

    I've heard this place is good. Its only a guesthouse really though, there's five or six rooms. Really nice though and its in Clifden.

    Looking at same thing as OP.
    Can anyone advise on what knockranny in Westport is like? Looking at going for 2 night with herself. Good spa and pool essential ?

    Please do not resurrect old threads.
    Recommendations from back then may not be valid anymore, and will just confuse people that think they are current.

    Start a fresh thread in Mayo with some details and they will help you.
