Oughterard is a traditional village in the West of Ireland nestled beside Lough Corrib at the start of the Connemara Mountain Range and only 11 miles from Galway City.
Its variety of attractions, accommodation and businesses make it the ideal location to experience a small Irish Village and a base from which to explore the breathtaking scenery surrounding it.
Lovely house with lovely surrounds and views. Communication with Stephanie was excellent even though she was away, and we were greeted as soon as we arrived by Stephanie's uncle.
As mentioned in profile page you definitely need a car as it is not really walking distance to town if you need to get groceries etc but I think this made for a nicer stay (we live in a small city of 45k so staying out of town was great!) Wifi would make it perfect :)
Thanks for having us Stephanie!
Stephanie's house in Rusheeney was well-equipped and very comfortable for a family of six including two adolescents and two grandparents. The location is beautiful, with easy access to Connemarra and Galway, and the closest town of Oughterard was charming and had all needed services (bank, groceries, etc.). We especially loved the comfortable beds and bedding and the sun room looking out over the fields, and appreciated finding easily everything that we needed for a comfortable stay.
I recommend this house without hesitation!
We had a great time staying in Oughterard at Stephanie's place. The house and grounds were in excellent condition and very comfortable....especially the sunroom! Very peaceful, rural setting with good food and music sessions in Oughterard. And it was a good location to go into Galway or explore much of Connemara. Stephanie was quick to respond to all communication and her aunt and uncle were next door and easy to contact if we needed anything. Thank you Stephanie (and Ann and Peter) for making our first trip to Ireland memorable.
We spent four nights at Stephanie's fantastic house. Huge & comfortable house, large dining and living room with view at the tipical Irish landscape.
If you prefer the countryside versus the crowded city, you'll definitally love it. We did!
The house (also the kitchen) is full equipped, it was a help for us that we found oil, spices to cook.
However we were there at mid-May, we needed heating which was available.
If you are internet-addict, note that you have to find it somewhere else.
Stephanie was kind to inform us previously how to get there and what to know. Unfortunately we could not meet, however her aunt helped us when we arrived.
We had a wonderful time on our first visit to County Galway. Our stay in Stephanie's relaxing, beautiful, and charming home in Rusheeney was part of what made this trip wonderful. Beautiful, spacious, and in the country away from the noise and lights of the city. And, the views from the sunroom were amazing! If we have the chance to return to County Galway, this is where I want to stay again!
This home was lovely. We enjoyed the peace, tranquillity, sheep and walks in the country. The home was immaculate, comfortable and the sun room was a highlight location! Oughterard is a charming village and the trip across Logh Corrib to Cong and Ashford Castle is a must.
The house is beautiful, modern, spacious (very good when you have a big family)... with incredible views on the countryside. It is a very good base to relax and explore the very beautiful Connemara region and lovely people.
We also fully agree with another review: "The sun room with surrounding views was a definitely a bonus and was a lovely relaxing room in which to sit and relax with a cup of tea." After a lovely journey somewhere in the region, and apéro & dinner at home, we played family games with our 4 kids in this sun room, or were reading, or dreaming...
We enjoyed our stay (two weeks) in Rusheeney !!
