“The finest B&B in Connemara!”
Reviewed 21 June 2012

Pat and Ann provide the best of Irish hospitality, with wonderfully comfy rooms, luscious breakfast menu (try the potato waffles!), private parking, great location (walking distance to town, restaurants, shopping, etc., and 100 yards from the Owenriff River) and placed well to tour Galway and the Burren to the south, Connemara to the west, and Ashford/Cong to the north. They are always ready with perfect directions, as well. After many visits, we will always return to Riverwalk House when in the west of Ireland.

This B&B is immaculate. We met Ann and she was extremely inviting and very helpful about the area. The room was extremely quiet and secure with a fabulous ensuite. The real surprise was the breakfast room - it is a beautiful sunroom with an ideal set-up. Breakfast was wonderful. This was an amazing stay! We hope to return in 2012.

We really enjoyed every minute we spent in Riverwalk. Ann is a wonderful hostess. The cleanliness is impressive and the environment is really comfortable and beautiful. The room is very good and the heater was really efficient. We loved the shower. The best one even compared to hotels we've been to. Great choices for breakfast! The pets around and the quite neighbourhood makes you feel at home. Great value for money!

Riverwalk House was our first Irish B&B and set a high standard for our next two weeks of traveling. Ann was very warm and welcoming and made us feel right at home. This was especially welcome since we had just experienced our first time “driving on the opposite side of the road” which was a bit nerve wracking to say the least! It is a lovely home with pretty gardens and comfortable rooms plus a very nice sunroom for breakfast. It was a great place to start our day each morning while we enjoyed Ann’s yummy breakfasts. We enjoyed spending evenings in the lounge in comfy recliners as we unwound from a busy day. The extra added bonus was a computer in the lounge that could be used by the guests! It was great to be able to send emails home to share the wonderful time we were having at Riverwalk and in Oughterard. The added bonus was being able to walk into town along the river and enjoy its quiet peacefulness after a day of sightseeing. We loved both Riverwalk House, Oughterard and the surrounding area and look forward to being able to return in the future!

We stayed for two nights at Riverwalk. It is in Oughterard, a very good location to visit the nearby Galway and also Connemara region. The rooms are spotless with comfortable beds. Ann is an excellent host and she prepares a great breakfast in the morning with a very good choice which you can enjoy in the sunny room at the back garden. I would definetely recommend this B & B.

2 couples traveled together & all 4 of us loved it. Positively stunning rooms & beautiful hallway. Spotlessly clean. Comfortable beds. (Was such a beath taking relief after seeing a pretty seedy place we turned down.) Ann was a gracious hostess. Price was right Classy. Loved it.
