Exactly what I needed. Actually, been there twice so far (2009, 2014). As a photographer, I still feel I can do more in this house and around it. Simple, unique, and absolutely nerve-calming atmosphere.

We stay one night, it is a beautiful place beside of Lake, really peaceful, traditional stay with irish breakfast. when you have lucky with weather like us do not miss the early morning view to the lake. Ougherard is 10 minutes by car away, not difficult to fing with Garmin. Beautiful surroundings. Perfect stay. we stay there again

The first impression of the house is the sparkling cleanliness of everything in sight! The decoration, floors, bedrooms, everything just shines with cleanliness. This doesn't happen by accident; it is the result of meticulous hard work. The owner Mary is so welcoming; nothing is too much trouble for her. She found us lots of walks to do and provided us...

We spent two nights here and we enjoyed it. The driveway you take to get back to it is the Golf Clubs Road and you follow the road all the way back and it is located at the end. The B&B was clean and owners were very friendly. Gorgeous views of the lake across the street and you are able... More

The setting is amazing, a house down a tiny road in front of a lake, looks like the end of the world :) it's beautiful, the house is very nice with a sitting room available to chill out and chairs outside to enjoy the view on the lake! The only thing is that the walls are thin enough so we... More

If you are looking for relax and tranquility, the Waterfront House is perfect. Situated in a front of a lake sorrounded by nature and in a strategic position if you wanna travel around Connemara. Rooms are spacious and well decorated. Breakfast is awesome, you can choose within a lot of variety of food and they offer both irish and contintental... More

Mary gave us a warm welcome in their lovely house overlooking Lough Corrib. The room was clean and comfy, breakfast was perfect. It's a great location and ideal for those who like peace and quiet. We really enjoyed our short stay.

Wes tay at Waterfront House County Home for 2 nights. Toma and Mary were very friendly and helpful. They gave us few good tips on local attractions. Rooms are nice and clean and breakfast was very nice. The view on the lake is just gorgeus. I highly recomend this B&B!

Me and my husband stayed there for 2 nights. We slept in a room with a lovely view of the lake and Mary let us use their boat for a couple of hours. The atmosphere was warm and welcoming and the view was great. One little downside was the bugs that came from the window when it was open because... More
