Very polite owners and a awesome and calm place to stay! But its a 40minute walk to the town, supermarkets and restaurants. The rooms are comfortable and you can decide between two breakfasts. Its just i great b&b!

Stayed here whilst on fishing trip for trout on lough corrib. Comfortable room overlooking lake. Breakfast good and Mary couldn't do enough for us. Would definitely come again - this time we'd use Mary's ghillie - appeared more successful than the one we used! Weather not kind to us, though

A beautiful location, delicious breakfast, spacious room and a great host Mary made our stay perfect! When Mary found out I was vegetarian she made sure I was catered for and a sufficient breakfast was prepared. Thank you for looking after us and making us feel like at home.

I had a outstanding time here. Everything was fine . I hope to comeback soon. The house is on a narrow road with little traffic on the lakefront. I wish I had more time to stay and enjoy the surrounding area. Oughterard Golf Club and Aughnanure Castle are both nearby and worth a visit. Easy day trips to Pearse's Cottage,... More

We have stayed there the 9th April for the Connemara Ultra Marathon. The house is great, very clean and comfortable. My husband had to leave very early morning, so he requested breakfast at half 5. No problem at all!! It is hard to get the request through sometimes, but with Mary, we had no issue at all. Our breakfast was... More

The best B&B I've been and I will highly recommend it to my friends and family. Mary and Tom made us feel very comfortable and welcomed. The rooms are big, spotless and well decorated. The breakfast is amazing including the typical Irish breakfast.

This was a lovely house in a beautiful location, the host was very welcoming and made us feel right at home. The house was spotless and the breakfast was excellent will definitely return. The host also recommend a place to have an evening meal and her recommendation was spot on.

The B&B was okay on all levels, service was friendly but in a way also distant, which I wasn't used to in Ireland. We paid 105 EUR for a 3 person bedroom with bathroom. I had the feeling that we have had better options in other B&B's for a bit less money but I suppose this probably has to do... More

Amazing area which is very remote & different but peaceful & unforgettable. Supersize,clean,bright & comfortable double room. Very friendly owners & extremelly helpful. A good selection of breads & pasteries to start of, followed by a nice breakfast served on a hot plate (always a bonous). Would recommend & will visit again.

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.
