Being from Dublin, I thought I knew most of Ireland's charming spots, but our month-long vacation in Oughterard, Co. Galway was a wonderful discovery! Kitty's Cottage was truly our home away from home and Kathleen is a delightful hostess. The cottage has three spacious bedrooms, each with their own bathrooms, a large dining room and a perfect kitchen with everything you could need and an open view of a gorgeous garden! It was perfect for hosting my large family over our stay. The town itself is a charming spot with so many wonderful pubs, restaurants, shops, butchers, post office and is only a 9-minute walk from Kitty's Cottage! Kathleen, once she figured out my wife is crazy about knitting, got her set up with the local community centre to meet fellow knitters and it greatly enriched our experience as we got to know the local families and residents throughout our stay. Kathleen looked after us by suggesting other activities; baking fresh bread; bringing us flowers from her garden...we have already booked a return visit!
Kathleen welcomed us to her beautiful cottage that had everything you need for a break in Ireland.
Kitty's Cottage is a home from home, loads of space, great for families or friends.
3 en-suite bedrooms are an absolute bonus. It was very clean and furnished tastefully. Oughterard village was larger than expected with every shop needed for self catering. An ideal place to be based for exploring the area.
Stayed at Kitty's cottage with my family for a week in July. There were 6 of us (4 adults and 2 children 15 and 11 years) and two small dogs. We found Kitty's cottage to have everything we needed. It was clean and tidy with a beautiful garden. Kathleen was very welcoming and helpful - nothing was too much trouble for her. She gave us lots of recommendations, booked horse riding for the kids and was overall the perfect hostess! The village is lovely and only a 10 minute walk away. It has great places to eat and plenty of pubs. I would have no hesitation in recommending Kitty's cottage, we loved it!
Fantastic accommodations and surroundings. We had a great stay with everything we needed. We Highly recommend.
We really enjoyed our stay. Lovely house, short walk into village. Our host Kathleen was lovely and very helpful. Lovely garden.
