Stayed here in October for a wedding cannot recommend the place enough-the location is stunning and peaceful-also with many walking paths nearby. The hotel itself is gorgeous full of welcoming staff and rooms where you can relax-the food was fantastic and local. Would highly recommend this place for the welcome and the vista all around.

We don't like to ever stay in the same place twice because there's so many places to see in the world - this place has been our only exception! It's simply idyllic, the food is the best I've had and I've dined in some Michelin star places. The family are so welcoming and hospitable. We've stayed here for two years... More

This hotel is in a great location at some distance from any town. The area is beautiful, perfect for outdoor activities, especially hiking. Available trails range from easy to challenging. It is a great place for a peaceful retreat or romantic getaway. This is an older, family-run property, with great service and a welcoming attitude to match. Rooms are comfortable,... More

For many years now, I have been traveling to Gougan Barra -- it is the most serene, peaceful, and relaxing place I have ever encountered. I have always wanted to stay at the hotel, but only recently had the chance -- it was worth the wait! On this trip, my husband and I were able to explore the nearby forest... More

We had visited Gougane Barra earlier in the year for a day trip. To be honest the hotel looks fairly nondescript from the outside but we had a booking for dinner, bed and breakfast later in the month so off we set! When we look for a hotel we are simply searching for something clean and with a bed! Our... More

We stayed as a group as part of a spiritual pilgrimage and the location, staff, and hotel are wonderful. It is a beautiful part of Ireland and well worth the trip to stay here. The location is so beautiful and peaceful. The food is absolutely incredible and staff so helpful and friendly. I highly recommend a stay here!

The scenery was breathtaking from the moment we arrived. The grounds were kept impeccable. The Inn keeper was very welcoming. We felt very much at home. Breakfast and dinner were amazing! This is a "Must See" without any doubt! Worth going out of your way for!

We stayed a night here on our Vagabond Tour of Ireland. What a beautiful valley and lake this inn operated by the 5th generation offers. Wonderful room, great food, a real taste of Ireland off the beaten path. The hotel, lake, church, valley and scenery take your breath away. Priceless!
