We were so pleased we chose to stay here. Carmel is a splendid hostess and her breakfasts are magnificent. We had the very comfortable little self contained cottage but took breakfast in the house. The bed linens are sumptuous. It was too far to walk into town for evening meals, particularly in the rain. The best bet for eating seemed to be the Connemara, there's not much else.
Unfortunately Oughterard has little to offer the tourist apart from Lough Corrib.The boat trips are recommended.
