About Una Murdoch

Blackberry Lodge is owned by the Murdoch Family. We are an Irish family who have been living in the U.S. for the past 15 years. Connemara and Renvyle hold a very special place in our hearts and after visiting for many, many years we were thrilled to finally be able to build our "home" in Renvyle in 2012. We try to visit Blackberry Lodge as often as we can.

Una Murdoch purchased this house in 2012

Why Una Murdoch chose Rusheenduff

Connemara is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled places in the world. Blackberry Lodge is located on the Renvyle Peninsula in Northern Connemara which boasts stunning vistas of the Atlantic ocean, the Mweelrea and 12 Bens Mountains and the Islands of InishBoffin, InishTurk, Clare and Achill Island.

What makes this house unique

Blackberry Lodge is unique in that it is a private home that is located on the grounds of the charming Renvyle House Hotel. It has been built and decorated to an extremely high standard reflecting the fact that it is truly a "home away from home" as opposed to simply a vacation rental house. Blackberry lodge provides the best of both worlds - privacy, space and comfort along with easy access to the excellent restaurant, bar and facilities of the Renvyle House hotel and it is a great base for exploring the rest of Connemara.

Beautiful house. Great owner

  • 5 of 5

This is a stunning house in a beautiful location. It is intelligently designed to the owners' specification. Everything is spotless and the accommodation comfortable. The open fire and wood burning stove add to the atmosphere in the evening. There is enough to do in the day and you will look forward to spending the evenings in front of the fire.

LA MAISON qu'il faut louer pour découvrir le Connemara

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons adoré cette maison, qui est confortable, bien équipée, moderne, décorée avec goût et dans laquelle on se sent comme chez soi. Les chambres sont chaleureuses avec des lits moelleux , les salles de bain modernes et le living room/cuisine est un belle espace baigné de lumière. Le poêle ou la cheminée sont prêts à fonctionner car la tourbe est dans un panier. Pour finir, la vue est inouïe : lac, golf, mer et montagne...le Connemara devant vous, avec de magnifiques éclairages ! Il y a beaucoup de choses à faire ou à voir avec des enfants ou des adolescents dans cette région ; Et si le temps le permet de belles ballades ou randonnées. Un coup de coeur que nous recommandons !

Phenomenal house and location

  • 5 of 5

We were so fortunate to find Blackberry Lodge. It is a perfectly maintained house with all the amenities and a beautiful view of the water near the Renvyle Hotel. There are frequent rainbows one can see in the early morning over the water. The owners do such a nice job of providing a manual of the workings in the house, good local restaurants and sites to see. The caretaker contacted us in advance and was very attentive to all our needs. Highly recommend this house and locale. They're both beautiful!

Blissful stay at Blackberry

  • 5 of 5

What a location and what a beautiful house, or rather a home, that we were lucky enough to stay in for a week with our little people. The house has everything you could possibly need from a high end luxury rental, buckets of living space, cozy corners, gorgeous open fires, super open plan kitchen, outdoor areas to choose from, and the ideal for a holiday rental - a spacious utility!! All this in the gorgeous surrounds of "swan lake" and the facilities and environs of legendary Renvyle house. So much to do we couldn't even fit half of the activities in!

Thank you for sharing your blissful blackberry lodge with us :)

Sehr schönes Haus

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich schönes Haus mit viel Platz zum Wohnen. Es ist alles vorhanden was man für eine entspannte Woche brauchen kann - nur einheizen muss man selber.
