A lovely boutique hotel in a wonderfully calm and relaxing location. We were only sorry that we could not stay longer and try the spa sea weed treatments. We would highly recommend a stay and will definitely return. The hotel is owned and run by a lovely couple with excellent staff particularly the chefs .

Very disappointing indeed. Should've eaten in the bar area instead. Chef refused to allow my uncle to substitute chips for mashed potatoes and haughty demeanour would not even be appropriate in New York or London, let alone Ballyconneely. Paying over £400 for dinner for 7 just made it all the worse. I have not felt so badly ripped off or disappointed by a meal in years.

Having completed the tour of Connamara we were looking forward to our meal at the Connemara Sands Erriseask. This proved to be a memorable dining experience. The wonderful staff gave outstanding customer service and the chefs provided food that was up there with Ireland's best.We chose from the Table d'hote menu which was excellent value. Three courses for 49euro. The food had that edge of familiarity with a creative twist. As a vegetarian for once I didn't have to choose a carb loaded pasta or risotto meal. The meat and fish eaters oohed and awed about their mains. The deserts were for sharing but nobody shared!!As a rhubarb fanaticI was glad I didn't land the rhubarb and white chocolate tart. It was probably the only disappointment.We lingered and watched the sun go down in Connemara from our table. The perfect end to a perfect day. Thank you. Ps I am still dreaming about the breakfasts at the Erriseask.

The best of produce from Connemara's larder of land and sea, cooked in their open kitchen restaurant - each plate of food was fantastic. I had just returned from Cannes where I dined in a 2* Michelin Rest. Stefan and Sinead's food surpassed it! Can't wait to dine there again soon.

Our evening meal in the Erriseak restaurant was presented lovely, one could taste the fresh produce and nice to see the chefs at work preparing the food even for a vegetarian (no meat or fish). I was looking forward to tasting Stefan Matz cuisine as I had the pleasure of sampling his cusine previously in a different establishment & had completed a Christmas food demonstration with him. I was not disappointed again. My partner thoroughly enjoyed his lamb and scallops. I only hope when I return that I can try different vegetarian dishes. Thank you.

My mother said it was honestly one of the best meals she's had in her life and I can't disagree with her. Decent portions that made you feel satisfied rather than sickeningly full, with beautiful, fresh and exciting flavours. Wonderful work :)

Wine expensive, my prosecco was flat. Poor service when we arrived we were more or less ignored for 20 minutes. Food was outstanding. Would have helped to have staff in some sort of uniform as this would have helped us at the start. Tasting menu was for whole table which was not explained before we ordered our foid

This was our best food experience this year.We are proud that one can have such, west of the Shannon. No apologies for giving the entire experience five for everything. On the night it was not just faultless, it was superb. It is almost impossible to get that balance there of formality and informality. It will be our yardstick for some time to come. Thank you to the Galway team..

The Erriseask restaurant and indeed the whole Connemara Sands hotel is 1st. class. The food in the restaurant and also in the bar is excellent as is the service throughout the hotel. We really enjoyed it and will recomend it to anyone who will listen to us.
