Emily was a delight and was a great welcome!! Such a comfy place to stay. The only thing that bothered us was the wifi.. It had a poor connection. However, other than that the stay was excellent. Breakfast was delicious and it was very comfortable.

Nice and clean and easy to find. Gracious and informative host with advice on local sites to see. (Skyview Drive near Clifton, and Kylemore Abbey. We did make a detour to see and it was well worth the change in our itinerary.

Made to feel very welcomed by Gerry who was "left in charge" for a few days by his wife. He did a wonderful job as host with his breakfasts a delight and which were served in a most delightful airy setting. Found the accommodation and general presentation of a high standard. When he knew that I was interested in golf... More

I have stayed at Carrown Tober House on holiday for the past two years and will continue to go back. Gerry and everyone is so welcoming. I instantly feel at home. My room is always clean and the food is excellent. They will definitely go the extra mile for their guests. But, guest probably isn't the right word, since you... More

We had a beautiful nice room and a spacious bathroom in this house but the room was not clean. There was dust and hair lying around and the girl who was there for cleaning did not do very much as surf the internet. The breakfast was very poor, only toast and marmelade, cereals and 2 yoghurts. Luckily the town was... More

We first stayed here 2 years ago, and are pleased to say little has changed. Comfortable room & immaculately clean. Great Irish breakfast. Wonderful Irish hospitality from Jerry & his wife. Easy walk into Oughterard & a good location to explore the Connemara.

Bumped into the place by chance, it was getting late and we had been driving around the all day. Just a really nice and tidy place, our room had lovely wooden floors and a comfortable double bed. Bathroom clean and functional. Owner was remarkably friendly and helpful. Breakfast was of excellent quality and we got all the coffee we could... More

We stayed with Jerry and Catriona for two nights in May. The home was so nice and we were greeted on arrival by their dog, Jesse, who got several belly rubs while we were there. Jerry and Catriona were very helpful with directions and restuarants. Jerry even helped us break into our rental car when we locked our keys inside!... More

The welcome was warm and the house was bright and spacious. The hosts were most helpful with advice on routes and had plenty of tourist information available. It was a very comfortable place to stay.

I found this B&b by accident and had never heard of it but it was after 6:00 P.M. and i was exhausted and then i saw their sign. I had been turned down several times in Ballyvaughn since I was a single traveler but at Carrown Tober i was welcomed with a smile. The place is gorgeous and the host... More
