  • Breakfast Included
  • Main Course and Dessert on One Night

'Places to see before you kick the bucket' are usually in far-flung destinations that require long-haul flights and malaria jabs. You'll therefore be pleased that the location of today's Escape is much closer to home: the majestic Killary Fjord in Connemara, Ireland's only fjord. With this week's Escape you can enjoy a stay in Leenane's Portfinn Lodge, which overlooks the majestic waterway.

For just €109 (up to a €246 value), enjoy a two-night, midweek (Wednesday and Thursday) break for two including breakfast each morning, dinner on one night comprising of a main course and a dessert, and a cruise along the Killary Fjord. Or, opt for a two-night stay weekend stay for €119 (up to a €252 value). You'll really feel as if you've flown halfway across the world and ventured off the beaten track when you look out of your room's window to see stunning bay or mountain views.

When it's time for dinner, head to The Fjord Restaurant, which boasts picturesque views and has a great reputation for seafood. Dine on dazzling dishes such as Killary mussels marinière with cream and roasted garlic, parsley crumbed hake in white wine sauce, or Mannin Bay scallops, followed by homemade dark chocolate mousse or Baileys and lime cheesecake.

Escapees will also get a cruise on the Connemara Lady along the Killary Fjord; a nine-mile long inlet with calm waters and some of the best scenery in the West. You'll travel in a purpose-built ship, allowing you to enjoy uninterrupted views throughout your journey. If you want to get out and about you might like horse riding along Cleggan Beach, or walking or cycling to explore Connemara and the coastline of West Mayo. Closer to home, stroll along the shore in Leenane village, or visit one of the local pubs.

This Escape is for two people. Got a question? Contact our Travel Concierge at Be sure to include the hotel name.

  • "Portfinn's guesthouse accommodation in the picturesque village of Leenane boasts 11 en suite rooms with spectacular views of either Killary Harbour or the Maumturk Mountains."
