Very beautiful area. We had a small issue with the cleanliness but handled that when we arrived. Two days I would say is plenty, three was a little much for being so secluded with only a handful of channels on the tv and nothing to play in the DVD player! Perfect for relaxing.

A beautiful home in a gorgeous location. Once you have a car you have access to travel to all the fabulous locations near Oughterard. We were looking to spend a few days in the 'elements' and we definitely go it. Stunning views, a lovely fireplace to cosy in beside, the tall forest behind us - couldn't ask for more. The whole weekend was easily organised with carols detailed instructions. Would definitely come back.

What a beautiful location and view!!! On your way to the house try to stop and pick-up some provisions before you arrive. The nearest store is a bit of a drive and you won't want to leave once you get there. You will be too busy trying to take it all in!

An beautiful home in a great secluded location, perfect for getting away from it all. There's great views over Lough Corrib and plenty of country lanes for walks. The house is one of the coolest you will ever step foot in!

Thanks so much to Carol for having us stay at her beautiful and spacious home. Carol and her husband have put a lot of thought into designing their house also making it sustainable and environment friendly. The unspoiled view and location are simply stunning, nature at its purest and perfect for a break but also exploring the Connemara area. There is also plenty of material in the house to give some tips of where to go and what to do in the area. When exploring the area and and getting to the next village you need to be prepared to do a bit of driving, but it is totally worth it! Communication with Carol was very good including providing details instructions of how to get to the house. I can highly recommend a stay at Carol's house and we hope to be back some time soon!

I was born in Galway and have been living in England for the last fourteen years. I still long to return to Ireland but until that day arrives I am sharing my home so that others can enjoy it!
