Corrib Wave House
Ranked #13 of 23 Oughterard B&B and Inns
Reviewed 15 June 2013

We were a family group of five adults looking to get a good sense of Connemara. Michael and Maria were the perfect hosts to do the job. They were warm and welcoming from the first hello to the last hug good-bye. The food was wonderful, they accommodated our every request, and they shared their home and their time. They were quick with good information about the area, as well as making the extra effort so that we contacted the right people and enjoyed our experiences. The Corrib Wave House is not a high-gloss over-polished city hotel but a comfortable base to explore the area and enjoy the company of our group, our hosts, and the other guests.

Delighted to report that our party has just spent another extended weekends fishing break at the Corrib Wave House. As ever the welcome was warm and humourous with reliably good hearty food. A big breakfast nicely set us all up for the days fishing ahead of us. Its very convenient with the House having its own jetty and boats for hire only a short stroll away down the garden. The convenience was made even easier when, at the end of the long days fish, we had a quick shower and popped downstairs to have very nice dinners.

Been there, seen it, loved it & been back many times - There are not many places that I feel as much at home at, as the Corrib Wave House. I cannot (and do not want to) imagine what the Corrib Wave House would be like without Michael & Maria - I definately look forward to returning and thoroughly recommend it.

Room Tip: Every room has an excellent view of Loch Corrib and the surrounding highlands - a beautiful spot. I...

When I think of my trip to Ireland, Corrib Wave is what pops into my mind. The stunning view of Lough Corrib was complimented by tasty, hearty Irish food, friendly smiles, banter around the warm, cosy fire and a great location to tour Connemara. The room was spacious and warm with everything you would need. A trip out on the lake on one of the boats was a highlight. It was a pleasure to step away from the hustle and bustle of life and into a relaxing piece of heaven!

It was a spontaneous, maybe also a bit risky, decision to return to a place we had spent a wonderful vacation almost 20 years ago. We were thrilled and pleasantly surprised to find Corrib Wave House as charming as it was then, and its owners, Maria and Michael, as warmhearted, friendly and helpful as they were back in 1992. - The lively talks with them at the turf fire in the evening were the daily highlights when coming back from our day-trips around gorgeous Connemara.

Needless to say that all this, together with Maria's delicious and "honest" food, more than compensated for the rather meager catch from beautiful Lough Connemara. Being out with ghillie Mark was great fun - with or without pikes.

A big thanks to our Irish hosts. We will not wait another 20 years to be back !

My wife & I wanted to stay a couple of nights near Galway in a B&B and had no previous knowledge of the area. We searched the B&B website, and stumbled upon an amazing looking B&B called the Corrib Wave. We phoned the same day we hoped to stay. Lucky for us they had room. What an incredible property in an incredible location. Sits right on Lough Corrib with stunning lake views. Mr. & Mrs. Healy are very nice, and their B&B is spacious. Our trip coincided with a group of annual UK anglers, and that only added to the fun! Mrs. Healy puts out a large breakfast spread, and in the evenings you will certainly sit in the oversized family room talking with other guests. Oughterad is a lovely little town with several pubs & restaurants worth enjoying, and the location is conducive to day trips to the Cliffs of Moher, Westport, and Galway. Well worth the experience and a great deal!

I have been frequenting the Corrib Wave for almost ten years. I visit every May, normally the third weekend in the month, whereupon the most glorious hatch of mayfly takes place - the fishing is good, the company excellent and the "craic" just as good. Aside from the obvious joy at seeing my friends again for some fishing, I would like to pass on my best wishes and thanks to Michael & Maria who run the Corrib Wave. Each year without fail they have looked after us with their warm and welcoming hospitality - The food is excellent - Breakfast sufficient to keep you going all day, packed lunches and the evenings meals of wholesome farmhouse fare. Michael also has available a small fleet of fishing boats available for day hire from the Corrib Wave's own quayside on the shores of loch Corrib. Any guest will soon get a taste of Michael's quick and dry sense of humour and love of all things piscatorial - what ever you do, do not ever ask Michael the best place or method for catching the best fish - you will only ever get one of his stock in trade comical answers back in reply. We have some excellent banter with him - our group have been after Michael's so called "recession discount" for the last few years without success. The views from the house are fantastic and it is just a short drive or ride in Jonjo's taxi into Ougherard for a few scoops. I highly recommend the Corrib Wave as do all the other guests I have seen return each year for the last ten years just as I do - long may it continue. Thanks, from Kevin, Northampton
