This was our third trip to Ireland and our second stay in the Galway area. The house and grounds were perfect (the garden in back was very nice) and our hostess, Kathleen Griggs, was very welcoming. Rooms come with access to a kitchen area. Tullyvrick is within 10 walking minutes of dining and shopping in Oughterard and just as close to Lough Corrib. Of course, the Connemara is only a few minutes drive away. If/when we make it back to Oughterard we won't bother looking at any other option.
