Ryans Hotel

Come to the West of Ireland and the idyllic village of Cong. Carmel and Frank Lydon established Lydons Lodge in 1975 and it still continues to be a family run business. From 1975 Lydons Lodge evolved from being ahead of its time as a victualler / craft butcher shop, to a fishing lodge, bed and breakfast renowned by fishermen for its high tea dining experience to the now Lydon’s Lodge Hotel.

Our hotel is located centrally in the picturesque village of Cong. It features a restaurant, a welcoming Old-World Themed Bar with plenty of outdoor seating to both the back and front of the building. Our bar also hosts regular live traditional music where all musicians, local & visiting are encouraged to join in. We also provide a shared lounge area for guests to relax and enjoy.

Ryan’s Hotel can offer you 12 newly refurbished en-suite bedrooms. We have a selection of Twin, Double and Triple rooms all with tea/coffee making facilities, Wireless internet access TV and Laundry facilities.
