    The only way to sum up Curraghduff Farm

    "The most tranquil, calming and heart warming experience."

    I wanted to organise a special/fun time for a date and decided an Alpaca walk may be a fun experience

    I was lucky enough to come across Curraghduff Farm (45 mins North West of Galway City.)
    And I reached out to check availability in which the day I hoped to travel there was availability.

    We were so warmly welcomed to Curraghduff farm by the both owners and it really set the tone for what was to come.

    To say that this was a 10 out 10 experience would still fall short of what it deserves. It was really a exceptional experience from start to finish.

    The farm has fantastic facilities which are back dropped with some stunning views.

    It was great to get up and close with all the Alpacas. Each with their own names and personalities.
    We were lucky to be toured by the beautiful "Alfie" & "Henry" for the day.

    The attention to detail was fantastic even down to getting refreshments at the end of our experience.

    This honestly is such a fun experience and was worth every penny especially for anyone who appreciates & loves animals.

    I would happily recommend this to anyone looking to enjoy having a special experience / day out.

    Thank you again to the team in Curraghduff Farm and hope to see you again in the future.

    Our guide was wonderful and chose terrain perfect for our level of experience. The horses were so wonderful I wanted to bring mine home but wasn't sure if he would fit in my carry on. Even though it was obvious they were busy training horses Lauren made us feel as though she had nothing else to do but show us the beautiful countryside.

    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

    We were driving around the area and our map said this was a nearby place of interest.
    Situated just off the main road, most people drive straight past, but it is well worth a quick look. The bridge was a major attraction when the film was released, but when we were there we had it all to ourselves.

    I've been going there for almost 20 years and Henry and his family are awesome. If they don't have what you are looking for, then you really don't need it ( ;) ) They have everything from boots and shoes to raingear and jackets to sweatshirts, almost every type of clothing. Keychains to small jewelry, knick knacks of all sorts, books and holiday decor. Stop and visit Henry and tell him where you are from, he enjoys talking to you and if he doesn't have something he may even know where you can get it. Besides he has GREAT prices compared to some of the stores in Galway proper that sell similar items. If you spend over $75 make sure you get a VAT tax card.

    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.

    I had been looking forward to shopping Standun since I saw their transformation on YouTube.

    The store is full of pretty clothing, accessories, Irish goods and gifts.

    The staff was inviting & welcoming.

    I highly recommend shopping Standun when in Ireland!

    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!
