Surrounded by stunning scenery, with ample opportunity to explore mountains, valleys and rivers, Delphi has something to offer everyone. There is a wide range of accommodation available to suit any price range, with many hotels also offering a fantastic selection of sports and adventure activities, including kayaking, cycling, rock climbing and guided hikes.
The Best Hotels for Hiking
Here you can stay in a traditional country lodge near the foot of the Mweelrea Mountain, the highest point in County Mayo, for a challenging hike, surrounded by incredible natural beauty. From the summit of Mweelrea, there are stunning views of Killary Harbour, Ireland’s only true Fjord, and Doolough Pass, a glaciated valley that has often been described as “the gem of County Mayo” due to the dramatic contrast between mountains, gorges and crystal waters.
For a slightly easier climb, stay in a bed and breakfast near Ben Gorm and Ben Craggan, which overlook the Delphi Valley. There are many hiking trails to explore here, many of which are also suitable if travelling with the whole family.
Delphi is just 8 miles from Connemara National Park, which has many hiking routes of varying difficulty, offering the opportunity to see a wide variety of bird life, such as peregrine falcons and kestrels. You can stay at one of the many lodge hotels or bed and breakfasts on the border of Delphi, near the N59, to be closer to the park.
The Best Hotels for Relaxing
Delphi has something for everyone. If you’re looking for a relaxing stay, there are several spa hotels on the bank of the Bundorragha River, combining luxurious treatments with tranquil natural beauty. Why not have the best of both worlds and spend one day kayaking down the river and the next relaxing in a cosy, country lodge with views over the mountains and Killary Fjord?
The hoteliers of Delphi are well equipped to deal with any whim you may have, and many hotels offer packages combining the very best experiences the area has to offer.
Hotels in Delphi for Families
Delphi is great place to visit with the whole family. With so many opportunities for adventure and excitement, the kids will be entertained for the whole trip. If you’re looking for something a bit more, there are also several resorts that offer activities and programmes for your children. This will allow you to relax, or have your own wild fun, knowing your kids are in safe hands.
