Connemara, County Galway
As long as the weather allows fisherman to venture off the Inishbofin coastline, guests here will happily nourish themselves on the famous crab claws, washed down with rich suds from the hotel pub. The turf fire stokes an already cozy dynamic at this family-run hotel set on an island cliff. Bright western light floods the interior, beckoning visitors to walk the rocky shore or bask in the garden. The furnishings are basic, but Wi-Fi is free.
