I have always had a soft spot for Lisloughrey Lodge, enjoyed many good meals there, and slept soundly in the lavish bedrooms. Previously, a stunning job was done on Lisloughrey, transforming it from old style country house into contemporary country hideaway with bedrooms and suites individually styled and decorated, oversized beds, deep piled carpets, dark wood furniture, and the latest flat screen technology. The heart of the hotel is a magnificent period building and behind it, new accommodation was added discreetly in two-bedroom units built around an attractive landscaped courtyard with covered walkways. Set in the grounds of Ashford Castle and now in common ownership, the hotel has one of the most beautiful locations in the country. Perched above Lough Corrib, just outside Cong, the most picturesque of village with little gift shops to peruse, cafes and pubs to refresh yourself in, ferry rides and woodland walks to amuse you. Fishing, golf and even falconry are all on your doorstep.

Food can be your greatest medicine, or the slowest poison if you don’t eat the right foods for your body. At the new Food Therapy Clinic in Renmore, Yvonne O’Shaughnessy, leading food intolerance specialist and nutritionist, offers food intolerance testing using blood analysis of 200 foods, aiming to avoid symptoms such as chronic fatigue, bloating, IBS, weight gain, migraine, skin conditions, constipation, irritability, and sugar cravings.
