The Delphi Lodge is a delightful 1830s country house and fishing lodge in one of the most spectacular settings in Connemara, Ireland. It offers charming accommodation, glorious scenery, great food, and total tranquillity. Located in a wild and unspoiled valley of extraordinary beauty, the 1000-acre Delphi estate is one of Ireland’s hidden treasures. The historic lodge, famous as a holiday hideaway, is surrounded by the tallest mountains in Connemara and overlooks the lakes and rivers of the Delphi valley, famous for their salmon and seatrout fishing.
Formerly the sporting lodge of the Marquis of Sligo, Delphi Lodge is wonderfully secluded, yet within easy reach of beautiful sandy beaches, championship golf courses, horse riding, and all the sights of Connemara, Galway, and Mayo. Delphi is special. It is not a hotel – it has no room service, TVs or à-la-carte menus. It is a private country house of great charm, stylish yet informal, sophisticated yet relaxing. This beautiful lodge has 12 large comfortable bedrooms one of which is a large family suite and three which can be either twin or triple rooms. A large dining room, a snooker room and three old world reception rooms with log fires all combine to ensure that our guests have a warm, relaxing and friendly experience throughout their stay.
Standard Rooms feature private bath, pine furniture, floral curtains, and wonderfully comfortable beds fill the bright, spacious bedroom.

A weekend of yoga, relaxation and healthy vegetarian meals in such a tranquil setting as Delphi Lodge affords the guest a golden opportunity to set their busy lifestyle aside. The weekend of Yoga and wellbeing is not like going to a spa where you are pampered by many staff, it is really time for you (the person) to bring the awareness back inside yourself.
Larger spring salmon, weighing between 7lbs and 14lbs, generally run into the Delphi system between January and June, followed by the smaller and more plentiful grilse of 2lbs to 6lbs, from mid June to late August. By September there is a full population of fish in the system.
