You would find yourself watching the water and swans for long periods of time. Upon arriving Mary was there to greet us with warm Irish hospitality and a friendly smile. Her knowledge of...

Stayed here whilst on fishing trip for trout on lough corrib. Comfortable room overlooking lake. Breakfast good and Mary couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely come again - this time we'd use Mary's ghillie - appeared more successful than the one we used! Weather not kind to us, though

A beautiful location, delicious breakfast, spacious room and a great host Mary made our stay perfect! When Mary found out I was vegetarian she made sure I was catered for and a sufficient breakfast was prepared. Thank you for looking after us and making us feel like at home.

I had a outstanding time here. Everything was fine . I hope to comeback soon. The house is on a narrow road with little traffic on the lakefront. I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy the surrounding area. Oughterard Golf Club and Aughnanure Castle are both nearby and worth a visit. Easy day trips to Pearse's Cottage,...
