Find out why Lough Lannagh is a great place to stay.
When Paul and Geraldine Lennon moved to Mayo from Bermuda in the 1990s, they were greeted with rain and a large tree growing in what is now the reception of Lough Lannagh Village. They climbed through overgrown bushes where the charred remnants of Creagh Villa stood. Their first day in Castlebar was a far cry from the 5-star hotel experience they were used to in the hotels they had worked in around the world.
The unorthodox career move was thanks to a tourism strategy report commissioned by Mayo County Council in the early 1990s. It identified a shortage of specialist tourist accommodation in the area. Castlebar was not considered a holiday destination, it was a place to pass through to get to Achill and Westport. At the time, the average visit to the town was 4 hours or less. The Council and architect Sean Taylor’s strategy was to establish B&B and self-catering accommodation on the edge of the poorly maintained lake and waterway. The cottages were to be built a waterlogged part of the site. Geraldine and Paul, stood in the pouring rain, missing Bermuda’s golden sands telling themselves to “keep an open mind and look at the possibilities.” It was difficult.
Today Lough Lannagh has 36 bedrooms consisting of a 24 bedroom B&B lodge and eleven self-catering cottages as well as a twenty-bay caravan & camping park, café, conference venue, and activities center.
The complex, lake and its surroundings have been redeveloped by Mayo County Council into sports, recreation, and heritage hub for the region. Geraldine, Paul, and the team’s philosophy combine a heartfelt welcome with a willingness to genuinely exceed customer expectations. Like their predecessors, they have built a reputation for treating people well. They actively work with partners in the community enabling them to run world-class sporting, choral, family, and corporate events by creating memorable experiences built on understanding, hospitality, and attention to detail.
