We have just had the most brilliant day out on David's cruiser. He makes sure that all his passengers are well catered for and is very knowledgeable about the area and especially the history of the island we stopped at. Thank you for making our last day in this area so enjoyable...loved the boat trip in the brilliant sunshine ,,,what... More

Turn right onto Camp Street in Oughterard, by the Boat Inn, and keep driving until you hit a beauty spot car park and there is a access only sign. The walk for a mile and you are suddenly in a sublime bog marked with Wild Atlantic Way path signs, and not much else, then you'll find yourself on a wooden... More

Stayed at Ashford Castle for 2 nights and we arrived by cruise. It was a wonderful way to arrive. There are 365 islands on the lake and most are uninhabited. Rugged and beautiful.

There are many lakes in Ireland, and I don't know what it is about this lake that keeps us coming back to it. Maybe its size, which is very large; or its wildness, fishing, or boating. There is a wonderful drive out of Oughterard. Head NE toward Gwann (I think the maps say Curraun) It's more like a 1 car... More

i think the best view of Corrib is the drive between Cong and Maam. Lough Corrib is reputed to have 365 islands - one for every day of the year. The view from this road are at a height and you get a feeling of scale, wilderness and beauty of the lake. Cong village and Ashford castle certainly worth a... More
