Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I stayed with Delores for a couple of nights late July just after she had reopened after Covid, what a most amazing welcome and beautiful home she had opened up for a very special few. Her rooms are the cleanest I have stayed in and the bathroom is compact but has everything you need. Now where do I start with the views as you drive up from oughterard you do not know what to expect as it is so beautiful around there. You drive up the sweeping driveway to be greeted by an unassuming house. Do not be deceived as when you walk in you will be amazed by what you see, a fresh clean modern home and that is what makes it , you feel like you have come home and nothing is too much trouble. It is so exclusive and quiet with the most stunning views as it is set away from the road it some beautiful woodland. Around there are stunning places to walk and lakes to view and swim in as they are so clear. You are so near to some stunning beaches and lakes Galway and Clifden are not far and the drive to these places is picturesque so not a chore. Delores is the most fantastic host and makes everything perfect for you and provides a great breakfast and has a great knowledge of the area as she has lived here always so knows the best places to go and where to eat. Also the best way to get there. If you drive up to doon you can see the most amazing sunsets and is very romantic. Or go the other way and do one of the six walks around windy park and get close to the wind turbines you can even touch them .

We had a most delightful experience with Delores at her B&B. She was an amazing hostess and took amazing care of us. We visited just on the cusp of the COVID crisis, and she was both aware of and careful given the situation, but warm, inviting, friendly and a most welcome conversationalist in the midst of an uncertain time. The home is warm and inviting, and the food delicious. Delores gave us wonderful directions to several sites of interest that we would have most certainly missed had we not stayed with her. She is just wonderful, and we will go back. Hopefully, we've made a life-long friend too!

The best thing about Forest Hill is the host, Delores. She met us right away, let us get settled in, and then offered us tea and wanted "all the news" about us. She was warm and welcoming, gave a great breakfast, and was very helpful at making recommendations for dinner and pubs. We loved our stay there and would highly recommend it to others.

Comfortable bed, delicious breakfast, and Dolores is a wonderful host! Dolores had lots of great suggestions for places to visit, that were hidden gems. And, there's a fantastic jacuzzi, if you get stuck in the cold rain! Would definitely return!

Our host Delores Leonard came to our rescue having been very badly let down by one of her competitors with no thought for our predicament compounded by what could only be described as a contemptuous excuse but you know something Teresa, you did us a massive favour! I must pay tribute to Delores's good friend Donal Connolly for his referral which was very much appreciated. We checked in early on Friday morning as prearranged as we were going fishing. When you meet Delores you know immediately you are in the right place. She has a very warm and friendly personality and such characteristics makes one feel very much at home. Both rooms were ensuite, spotless with very comfortable beds. Both of us felt the nights sleep was very peaceful and quiet. As we were heading out on the lake to go fishing Delores provided us with breakfasts that would feed a horse or two,mighty stuff! After three days we had to head home and although the fishing was the worst we have ever experienced on Mayfly, Forest Hill was excellent! Both Gary and myself agreed that Delores will be receiving all our future business and any referrals we can make. Try it out you won't be disappointed. Excellent!

Off the beaten path on a quiet and lovely hill! We were immediately and warmly greeted by Dolores as she offered to help with our bags. She showed us our room right away, and then the dining area and asked if we wanted any sandwiches or treats and tea before bed. We sat in the dining area with Dolores for about an hour and talked about life and history and our plans for the next day, which she gave us amazing advice and recommendations on! She truly loves her country and its rich history and will enrich your visit to Ireland. She was so fun and easy to converse with - we had many laughs! Our breakfast was BEAUTIFUL, I had to stand on a chair and take a picture of it as my husband made fun of me :D One of our most memorable B&Bs we stayed at on our trip!

Four of us stayed here at the beginning of a long walk through Connemara. Delores made reservations for us at an excellent restaurant in town and arranged for an RT ride there. Our rooms were comfortable and the breakfast fine. In the morning she gave us a ride to the beginning of a long day's walk so we could avoid the highway walking. That kindness was much appreciated. Thanks, Delores!

My husband and I enjoyed our stay. Delores is a hoot - loved her! She genuinely enjoys talking to her guests. Accomodations were good as well as breakfast. Above and beyond: her neighbor Brian drove us into town for dinner; how nice was that!! Thanks Delores - Leslie and Craig

Had a wonderful stay, Dolores was so helpful she advised us on all the best places to go and where to eat, not that we need much after or fabulous breakfast. Our room was comfortable and clean. I would highly recommend staying here.
