“Very comfortable accommodation & friendly experience”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

Made to feel very welcomed by Gerry who was "left in charge" for a few days by his wife. He did a wonderful job as host with his breakfasts a delight and which were served in a most delightful airy setting. Found the accommodation and general presentation of a high standard. When he knew that I was interested in golf he arranged a favourable booking time at Oughterard Golf Course at which he is a member and as we found out, together with his son, runs the restaurant at the Club.He even suggested quite walks for my wife whilst I was golfing, a man of many talents.Our experience at Carrown Tober House and Oughterard was most enjoyable and we would highly recommend a stay at this B & B. My wife and I dined at the Club and Gerry's skills go far beyond just breakfasts. Bob and Glenda Sydney Australia

I have stayed at Carrown Tober House on holiday for the past two years and will continue to go back. Gerry and everyone is so welcoming. I instantly feel at home. My room is always clean and the food is excellent. They will definitely go the extra mile for their guests. But, guest probably isn't the right word, since you automatically are made to feel at home and part of the family. Can't wait to go back next year and every year after that.

We had a beautiful nice room and a spacious bathroom in this house but the room was not clean. There was dust and hair lying around and the girl who was there for cleaning did not do very much as surf the internet. The breakfast was very poor, only toast and marmelade, cereals and 2 yoghurts. Luckily the town was not far away, so we spent lots of time over there. The boat inn is a very good restaurant to go to. The owner of the house gave us a map and advice for a day trip which was very nice.

We first stayed here 2 years ago, and are pleased to say little has changed. Comfortable room & immaculately clean. Great Irish breakfast. Wonderful Irish hospitality from Jerry & his wife. Easy walk into Oughterard & a good location to explore the Connemara.

Bumped into the place by chance, it was getting late and we had been driving around the all day. Just a really nice and tidy place, our room had lovely wooden floors and a comfortable double bed. Bathroom clean and functional. Owner was remarkably friendly and helpful. Breakfast was of excellent quality and we got all the coffee we could drink (good filter coffee).

We stayed with Jerry and Catriona for two nights in May. The home was so nice and we were greeted on arrival by their dog, Jesse, who got several belly rubs while we were there. Jerry and Catriona were very helpful with directions and restuarants. Jerry even helped us break into our rental car when we locked our keys inside! The walk into the village of Oughterard was nice and relaxing. We really enjoyed our time at Carrown Tober and would go back in a minute!

The welcome was warm and the house was bright and spacious. The hosts were most helpful with advice on routes and had plenty of tourist information available. It was a very comfortable place to stay.
