    We loved seeing the shepherding demonstration. My kids pet the sheep and the dog. Keith answered a bunch of questions and was wonderful

    The guide had a lot to say about this tower house of the 1500s and it was all very interesting as an insight into the people of those times. The informaation boards were clear and interesting too. Altogether a surprise find that was well worth the trip. Recommended

    100% a must, brilliant from start to finish. Ruth and Stewart were so friendly and welcoming. Well worth a visit. Can't recommend it enough.

    The Quiet Man Bridge at Leam is just off the main Oughterard- Clifden Road by a 100 metres or so, to the left if you are coming from Oughterard. Look for a white signpost for Leam.
    As its title suggests, it is the Bridge that was used when shooting The Quiet Man in 1951.
    There is a small layby to pull in to and a display board about John Wayne and the film.
    It's really picturesque though, whether you've seen the film or not, and well worth a quick stop, especially given it's so close to the main road.

    My wife and I were looking for Irish made gifts for our family and stopped in at Standun’s Oughterard store. We found Aran sweaters for our two younger grandchildren but my wife wanted to get our daughter’s OK. Siobhan suggested we take pix and e-mail them to our daughter while she would hold them aside for us. The next day when we stopped in to say we wanted the two, my wife mentioned to Shiela that we were trying to find sweaters for our son and son-in-law. Shiela showed us some but the ones that appealed to us were not in the sizes we needed. No problem, Shiela ordered them up from the home store so we could see them next day. At the same time, a poncho caught my wife’s eye - perfect for daughter and granddaughter, and she looked good in one, too. Olivia and Shiela checked and found the colors we wanted were available again at the home store, and they ordered them so they were there the next day for our inspection. Final count, Aran sweaters for son, son-in-law, older and younger grandsons, and younger daughter; Aran knit ponchos for wife, daughter and daughter-in-law. What a wonderful store and what a fantastic group of sales ladies. Siobhan, Shiela and Olivia made the whole shopping experience a genuine pleasure. And when we got home, our older granddaughter (for whom we had gotten a bodhram because she is musical) snuggled into her mother’s poncho, so we called over and Shiela is shipping another poncho to us for her for Christmas. This is one fabulous store.

    Very nice and friendly owners. Changing room, shower and a boiled kettle. Can’t ask for more! Definitely worth the visit! The views from the trail are unreal!

    Very accommodating.
    We were three novice riders and were matched with calm and controlled horses.
    Beautiful scenery on our 90 minute trip!

    We were so lucky to do this boat trip on what was probably the warmest amd sunniest day of our holiday. We arrived by chance and were lucky enough to be able to get on (2+3). The staff was friendly and professional and kept to all covid guidelines and the trip was informative and entertaining. The views and scenery are beyond beauty. Highly recommend doing this tour

    River Kayaking with Eva was a fantastic experience. This is an experience that can be done whatever the weather or whatever your level of experience. Eva is a thoughtful guide from yoga on the pier at Maam to loosen up our limbs before kayaking to river foraging at the end of our trip. I could not recommend this more highly. It is a completely new way to see Connemara.

    Great day at Oughterard GC for our group. Course was a in excellent condition and a real challenge for all levels. Greens were in superb condition and very fast.
    We were well looked after in the bar and restaurant. Staff were very friendly and helpful.
    Massive thanks to Derek the pro for looking after us, not easy when 48 swamp the shop all at once demanding their buggy !!
    The day could not have been better.
    Thank you Oughterard.
