This house is great for large groups. There were 14 of us. It is in a fantastic location with a lovely garden and on a quiet road.
The owner, Barbara was lovely, easily contactable and more than helpful. Barbara's neighbour Joe was lovely too and offered to take a couple of us out on his boat although the weather cancelled this for us !
It is in walking distance to the lake and pier.
It is a good base for travelling around the West of Ireland and is 20 minutes by car from Galway . Oughterard itself is lovely with several pubs playing Irish music. Plenty of shops too..all in walking distance. We ate twice at the Power Thatch (recommended by Barbara). Food was delicious.
Only downside was we had to go home !!! ... We will be back !!
