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!

Room tip: No bad rooms in the house - all have lovely views of the town and the lake!

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!
