We stayed here for a 2 night break mid week. Henry and his mother June were the perfect hosts. We simply were guests in their home. This is guesthouse and not a hotel and we were afforded the opportunity to step back in time and enjoyed the old world charm of the surroundings. Nothing is a bother, and both Henry... More

I was blown away by Currarevagh House from the moment we stepped into the porch. If coming to this country house (not a hotel!) you have an issue with tired bathroom fittings and that 'old house' smell then you are missing the point. You do feel like you are stepping back in time and that goes for the outstanding hospitality... More

The location is absolutely beautiful and this home has all the potential to offer guests travelling in Ireland first rate accomodation and a most memorable stay. The dining and breakfast room was very charming, but not the rest of the house and especially not the bedrooms. These rooms desperately need refurbishment, they look tired and shabby, depressing even, the bathrooms... More

I can only endorse all the positive things which others have said about Currarevagh House. I don't think I have ever stayed anywhere quite like this before. I didn't feel as if I was in a hotel but that I was a guest in a very comfortable home being welcomed and cared for by the family. Curiously I loved having... More

This is exactly what one hopes for from a country house stay: a warm welcome, friendly atmosphere, comfortable in a traditional way, beautiful location, peaceful and relaxing, and above all excellent food prepared by one half of the couple who own and run this lovely place. We had the best food of our two week stay in Ireland - there... More

My wife and I stayed here for three nights during a recent motoring holiday in Ireland. It was by far the most enjoyable period of our entire trip. Currarevagh House is an ideal base for touring Connemara, walking, fishing, messing about in boats or just chilling out, while enjoying the very, very best of Irish hospitality. Henry is the ultimate... More

We just spent the weekend at this charming country house. We received a warm welcome and our room was spacious and clean. The attention to detail was excellent.....from the perfectly brewed tea and coffee to the immense respect for their local produce.....I found it amazing! Absolutely enjoyed the guinea fowl that was served for dinner and the black and white... More

Henry, Lucy and June have perfected Irish hospitality. They are incredibly personable, yet non intrusive. They cater to the guest's every need. The food is BEYONE 5 star! Though the rooms are a bit dated, they are extremely comfortable, quiet and private. The setting is not-to-be-believed idyllic. The nearby town of Oughterard has everything a guest could want without being... More

We traveled for two weeks in Ireland and loved our time in this wonderful country. The people, food and music were amazing. However, the highlight of our trip was the three nights we spent at Currarevagh House. Henry welcomed us to his family's historic home which is full of elegant, old-world charm. The rooms are beautiful with great views. The... More

Staying at Currarevagh House is like stepping back to a more gracious, slower time in history. I don't suggest it for families, but for couples it is lovely. The location allows you to do as much or as little as you'd like in an unhurried fashion. You can visit the sights on the island, fish, take long walks or just... More
