Places to Stay | Co. Mayo, Ireland
Stella Maris Country House Hotel is one of the finest four-star hotels in all of Ireland. With unsurpassed views of the Atlantic Ocean and the gorgeous countryside of Ballycastle in County Mayo, Stella Maris is the epitome of serenity.
This unique building—originally a Coast Guard regional headquarters and subsequently a convent for the Sisters of Mercy—was lovingly restored and opened to critical acclaim in 2002. Today, Stella Maris Country House Hotel is a proud member of Ireland’s Blue Book of Country Houses and Restaurants, as well as Historic Hotels of Europe.
Stella Maris is one of the most popular restaurants on Ireland’s West Coast. It has been recognized by Bridgestone Guides as one of Ireland’s Top 100 restaurants. The quality and preparation of the food, which is the hallmark of Ireland’s Blue Book properties, serves to complement the scenic location on Bunatrahir Bay overlooking Downpatrick Head.
