Make a date to visit magnificent Breaffy House Resort to indulge in a luxury break on Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way

Following a multi-million euro investment, Breaffy House Resort in County Mayo has regained its four-star status and offers a luxury destination along the spectacular Wild Atlantic Way.

The extensive Victorian property, situated just outside the town of Castlebar, now boasts 106 spacious bedrooms, four junior suites, two executive suites and a new bridal suite. There have also been improvements to its leisure club and sumptuous spa, and a development of the south terrace.

The hotel is set in 98 acres of beautiful woodland where new walkways enhance the outdoor experience for guests.

The resort includes a second hotel, Breaffy Woods, a modern hotel specialising in family accommodation and just a few minutes’ walk from the main Victorian house.

Breaffy House Resort has also announced a partnership with leading champagne brand Moet & Chandon and now offers a Moet & Chandon luxury spa package among its wide range of themed breaks.

The break includes a five-course gourmet dinner in the old world charm of the Mulberry Restaurant, a bottle of Moet & Chandon champagne, spa time, two nights bed and breakfast and Elemis gift sets.

While the comfort of the hotel, the lure of the spa and the wonderful woodland walks provide all you need for a perfect short break, Breaffy House Resort is also an ideal stopover destination for experiencing the treasures and hidden gems of the world famous Wild Atlantic Way.

The resort is just 30 minutes’ drive from seven blue flag beaches on the Wild Atlantic Way, five of which are on Achill Island, a majestic, ocean-lashed island that makes for a perfect day trip.

The Great Western Greenway, a 43.5km mainly traffic-free cycling and walking trail, is also close by, while if you want to venture into town you can find the National Museum of Ireland’s Country Life collections in Castlebar. All roads in nearby Westport lead to the renowned Matt Molloy’s pub, where the traditional music is of the highest quality as it is owned by a member of Irish mega-group The Chieftains.

Just a short trip up the road is Foxford Woollen Mills Visitor Centre, one of Ireland’s premier attractions. A self-guided multi-media tour takes you through the working mill explaining its fascinating history and providing a view of the craft of weaving that has been carried on at the mill for over 100 years.
