Manager info

Year Purchased: 2012

About: Blackberry Lodge is owned by the Murdoch Family. We are an Irish family who have been living in the U.S. for the past 15 years. Connemara and Renvyle hold a very special place in our hearts and after visiting for many, many years we were thrilled to finally be able to build our "home" in Renvyle in 2012. We try to visit Blackberry Lodge as often as we can.

Why Rusheenduff, Co. Galway, Ireland:
Connemara is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places in the world. Blackberry Lodge is located on the Renvyle Peninsula in Northern Connemara which boasts stunning vistas of the Atlantic ocean, the Mweelrea and 12 Bens Mountains and the Islands of InishBoffin, InishTurk, Clare and Achill Island.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Blackberry Lodge is unique in that it is a private home that is located on the grounds of the charming Renvyle House Hotel. It has been built and decorated to an extremely high standard reflecting the fact that it is truly a "home away from home" as opposed to simply a vacation rental house. Blackberry lodge provides the best of both worlds - privacy, space and comfort along with easy access to the excellent restaurant, bar and facilities of the Renvyle House hotel and it is a great base for exploring the rest of Connemara.
