If you are looking for a great relaxing spot to enjoy an amazing view of Ireland with great hospitality this is your place. The view is to die for..you can enjoy it from the water bank, room or porch while having some tea or wine. There is also great access to fishing and all of Connemara. Though a bit outside... More

We were a family group of five adults looking to get a good sense of Connemara. Michael and Maria were the perfect hosts to do the job. They were warm and welcoming from the first hello to the last hug good-bye. The food was wonderful, they accommodated our every request, and they shared their home and their time. They were... More

Delighted to report that our party has just spent another extended weekends fishing break at the Corrib Wave House. As ever the welcome was warm and humourous with reliably good hearty food. A big breakfast nicely set us all up for the days fishing ahead of us. Its very convenient with the House having its own jetty and boats for... More

When I think of my trip to Ireland, Corrib Wave is what pops into my mind. The stunning view of Lough Corrib was complimented by tasty, hearty Irish food, friendly smiles, banter around the warm, cosy fire and a great location to tour Connemara. The room was spacious and warm with everything you would need. A trip out on the... More

It was a spontaneous, maybe also a bit risky, decision to return to a place we had spent a wonderful vacation almost 20 years ago. We were thrilled and pleasantly surprised to find Corrib Wave House as charming as it was then, and its owners, Maria and Michael, as warmhearted, friendly and helpful as they were back in 1992. -...

My wife & I wanted to stay a couple of nights near Galway in a B&B and had no previous knowledge of the area. We searched the B&B website, and stumbled upon an amazing looking B&B called the Corrib Wave. We phoned the same day we hoped to stay. Lucky for us they had room. What an incredible property in...

I have been frequenting the Corrib Wave for almost ten years. I visit every May, normally the third weekend in the month, whereupon the most glorious hatch of mayfly takes place - the fishing is good, the company excellent and the "craic" just as good. Aside from the obvious joy at seeing my friends again for some fishing, I would... More

On arrival after a long drive, Maria, our hostess provided us with a much appreciated hot cup of tea and some buscuits. The welcome was warm and sincere. The house is situated right on the shore of Lough Corrib and is just a matter of minutes on the Galway side of Oughterard, a lovely little village. Our room was spacious... More
