Interaction with Guests
I will try to have a member of my family meet you but there maybe times when this is not possible. You will be able to call me with any queries.
Glann is located on the shores of Lough Corrib. The location is fantastic for fishing, hiking, mountain biking, golfing and exploring all Connemara has to offer.
The Western Way walk passes close by our house.
The Derroura Mountain Bike Trail provides amazing mountain biking and spectacular views of Connemara.
A car is required as the house is located 8km from Oughterard and you will want to explore everything on offer in the area.

Carol's home is absolutely stunning. Remote, modern -- but tastefully placed -- home with all the amenities a family needs for a perfect Connemara retreat. The pictures don't do the place justice. I will recommend it to anyone I know who has County Galway on their itineraries. Carol, too, was communicative and helpful all through the process. The resident sheep were a huge plus for my teenager. 5 stars!!
La maison de Carol est un lieu extraordinaire pour les amoureux du calme et de la nature. Cette maison écologique est spacieuse, confortable, très bien conçue et idéale pour les familles avec p'tits bouts. L' ambiance et la vue y sont magiques. La localisation est un bon point de départ pour visiter le Connemara et ses alentours. Même si Carol n'était pas présente pour nous accueillir, ses bons conseils nous ont permis de passer un très bon séjour et de découvrir d'excellentes adresses. Malgré notre arrivée nocturne et tardive (GPS vivement recommandé), la maison était éclairée sur le flanc de la montagne et chauffée. Bref, elle nous attendait !
We had an absolutely brilliant time at Carol's house on the hill. The house is just wonderful with amazing views and tons of space, just as it looks on the photographs. We ended up arriving in the dark due to a missed flight but located the house thanks to the precise instructions, despite it being pitch black! Oughterard itself has everything you need even out of season, we had a hearty full Irish breakfast at the local pub and stocked up on supplies at the butchers, McGeoughs. That along with Uncle Matt's Farm kept us busy cooking delicious local produce in the spacious kitchen. A brilliant location for exploring both Connemara and Galway. We hope to return!
We had an amazing experience of Connemara while staying at Carol's place. This house is located in an amazing place, and the design takes advantage of all the best views.
This house is perfect if you are looking for a holiday in a remote and serene location. Being a listing for the entire home, you can have complete privacy, and really feel at home, so I suggest it is more suitable for longer stays, so you can fully enjoy.
I would definitely recommend this listing, for families, or groups of friends. The house can feel a bit large for 2 people.
Stunning house, in a breathtaking location. It was my first time using Airbnb, and I really struck gold. The perfect escape.
Carol was fantastic. Great directions, and the house had everything you could wish for. Loved the wood burning stove and the open plan layout.
This is real Grand Designs. Looking forward to returning again soon.
A stunning house in a beautiful remote location. Well equipped and lots of things to see and do in the area surrounding.
The house is exactly as described on Airbnb. It's a true architect house in the middle of the sheeps with a stunning view on the lake, lots of glass, plenty of room for us and our daughter! There is a track to access the house and no neighbours except woolies. We had a very very pleasant stay, and the emails with the owner were very nice and helpful. The house was lighten when we arrived at 10pm, that's nice. There was even a Christmas tree for us.
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!
