We were in the “chalets” not attached to the main house. No cups or glasses, no top sheet, no soap, broken shower door but we did have spiders. Perhaps the main house lives up to the other reviews but not our room. The other couple we were with had a bed in their small kitchen! Too many B&Bs in the area to stay here.
My wife and I so wish that we stayed more than one night as this place was nearly perfect in every way! Our host became a fast friend as she is very friendly and engaging in great conversation. Upon our arrival, she showed us to our room and invited us down for coffee, tea, and wonderful baked goods! She then took the time to ask where we were from and when we said, "Boston" she took the time to talk about and get to know us. She genuinely cared about us not as paying customers, but as known guests in her home. We even visited a site that she recommended that was not on our itinerary (Kylemore Abbey) and this became one of our favorite stops of our entire trip. Delores even recommended a pub in town (Powers) and this too became one of the more memorable experiences of our trip.…
Dolores was a lovely host on our hike through Connamara. Terrific room and breakfast, and she tipped us off to a wonderful restaurant in town and then packed us a nice lunch for the next day. She makes you feel right at home from the instant you arrive. It was a great start to our Hillwalk tour through Connemara. Oughterard is a terrifc little city and I hope to spend more time there one day. We'll be back!
Dolores is an absolutely delightful hostess, very friendly, helpful, gives great suggestions of places to go, sites to see, places to eat, should you want help. The place was immaculately clean and the grounds are beautiful. I was travelling with my 12 year old daughter (mother/daughter trip) and Dolores made her feel right at home. It's out from town, but just a short drive in, but you definitely want to have a car when staying there. It was nice to get away after a day of being out and about.
Wonderful warm welcome, felt more like a friend than guest. Nice view over the lake. Spectacular countryside weather along the coastroad or cross country - ask her for the little road! Super restaurant in the village called Greenway. No1 on trip advisor. Excellent local food products and fantastic choice of wine
