Delphi Lodge is located in one of the most spectacular valleys in Ireland on it’s own 1000 acre estate. It is surrounded by wild rivers, beautiful lakes and some of the tallest mountains in Connemara. The lodge was built in the 1830’s by the Marquis of Sligo for hunting and fishing and was named after the valley’s alleged similarity to the home of the Oracle in Greece. It has been visited over the years by many fishing enthusiasts and even royalty including King Edward VII and more recently Prince Charles. Delhi Lodge is not a hotel, has no room service, TVs or a la carte menus but rightly claims to be the ultimate Connemara retreat.
