“off the main track B/B”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We stayed in this B/B during our visit to conemara. It is of the main road so a bit difficult to find on satnav but has a very nice view of the lake and very peaceful place. You have the access to the family lounge which is very comfortable. We had 2 rooms both in front of the property with great views. Both were nice,clean and had comfortable beds. Bathrooms were clean too.
Ouhgterard is a small town but there is late night shops and basic eating resturants. Convienent place to stay at start or end of conemara ring.
The lady who owns it serves a good basic breakfast and have tea coffee fascillities in the dinning room as well for other times of the day.

Room Tip: try and get the room at front of property for view of the lake.

Thank you for your very kind comments, they are very much appreciated.

We are delighted that you chose to stay with us. We are sorry that you found it difficult to find us, but sometimes you're better off without a SatNav as it's pretty much useless in the countryside.

The SatNav will bring you close to where you want to go, but with all the little side-roads in the area it can get confused at times.

We hope to see you again, sometime.

Yours Sincerely,

Mary and Tom.

Mary and Tom Walsh,
