“A hidden gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014 via mobile

Located just outside Oughterard, this is one place I wont forget. From the service to the location I cannot find a fault. The weather during my stay was nothing to write home about but it would be all forgotten about every evening when I would get a warm reception from the hosts.

This vacation was truly wonderful.
My family stayed here and we were welcomed into this family run B and B by Teresa, the lady of the house, she was friendly and was able to provide us with so much information about the beautiful town of Oughterard. The man of the house organised for a local gillie who brought us out on the beautiful lake, (my son even caught a trout), Teresa prepared a lovely picnic for us that we brought with us and enjoyed on a historic island.
The house itself was extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. The traditional breakfast served in a bright dining room overlooking the beautiful garden kept us going for hours :)

I would recommend this B and B to everyone and anyone, We will certainly be back in the near future.

Excellent bed and breakfast just a short walk out of the beautiful town of Oughterard.
Very friendly informative hosts. Loved the cooked breakfast.
Perfectly located to access the Conamara area. I am coming back in the summer to do some fishing.
Highly recommended. Thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Crossriver

This one night stay was towards the end of our touring holiday in the West of Ireland so had lots great B&B's to compare it to.
Whilst the owners are very nice and friendly and offered us tea on arrival, it was the first B&B that did not have this facility in the room. However they did steer us to a fantastic restaurant in the village, 5 mins walk. Breathnach's Bar is the place to eat.
Overall a nice house.

Stayed here a couple of weeks ago, the owners of the house were very welcoming and offered us plenty of information about the village. Tea was served upon arrival, and our luggage was carried to our rooms by the owners son. We really enjoyed our stay here, the home made brown bread which was served with a lovely full Irish breakfast was the best bread I have eve had. I simply cannot fault this B & B, I hope to return in the near future.

Room Tip: We had a room looking over the well maintained gardens

We had an unexpected trip to oughterard recently, and had to stay for two nights in crossriver Bed & Breakfast, this is a family run business and what an excellent reception we got from Wally and Theresa, could not do enough for us, excellent home cooked food and plenty of it too, luxurious rooms, taste ful decor, spotless and spacious, we had every comfort one could ask for, and would certainly recommend this to other travellers if you are looking for a real Irish Welcome. well done to the whole family

We stayed at Crossriver with my parents and aunt recently and we were all really impressed with the beautiful clean rooms, excellent Irish breakfast and the warm welcome from Mrs B for whom nothing was too much trouble. We would certainly stay again if we visited Connemara in the future.
