Stayed here a week ago with my family and my daughter. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel so very welcome from reception to bar staff. True Irish hospitality at it's very best.. The rooms were bright, airy and spotless. The linen was crisp white and fresh. We dined in the restaurant both evenings and were treated to scrumptious food and amazing service. A big thank you to all @ The Boat Inn for making our weekend away so memorable. We hope to return again soon.

My wife and I dined at the Boat Inn five times during a week's stay in Oughterard.

We had three "tonight's special" meals and two from the menu. All food was very tasty and well presented promptly by the busy and cheerful staff. The atmosphere was just right in the bar and in the restaurant, when the bar seating was full.

Rory Clancy showed us a double room which was bright and warm; we intend to stay here on our next visit to this vibrant and welcoming village.

WOW! When Karen met us at the desk I knew we were in the right place. Then Rory came to the lounge while we're having a we dram to warm us and he graciously arranged our sight seeing the following day. Then after dinner Veronica made it possible to have midnight leftovers from our meal in the bar while listening to live Irish music. Don' look anyplace else if you want a 5 star stay in Ireland.

Boat House is a breath of fresh air. We had a lovely 2 day stay,my Mum and I were looking for a twin bedroom but were given two double bedrooms at the same rate.they were clean and very comfortable, with everything we needed at a very reasonable price.

Oughterard is a charming wee town and the boat house inn is right in the hub of it all, it has a lovely south facing beer garden as well, perfect to enjoy a sunny pint or two

We loved the rooms and the food but best of all was the friendly staff- couldn't be better.

Love our 5 days staying at Boat Inn cause the room is so clean and tidy; Staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Sometimes the bar is so busy that it shall takes long time for your oder. But other than that, everything is fantasic. Highly recommend for everyone.

Room Tip: We only stayed there for fishing. Most of the time we went out for fishing on the lake Lough Corribs...

As a group of 4, two adults and two kids aged 16 and 12, it can be difficult to find good accommodation at short notice, so we were lucky to find accommodation here late on Saturday evening. And what a find! Rory, the guy on reception, was very welcoming and professional, and gave us a great rate for our overnight stay. The rooms were lovely, small but really clean and comfortable, and we enjoyed a complimentary coffee before retiring to the bar to enjoy the music. Breakfast was equally good, and service was attentive and pleasant. The Sunday lunch menu looked good, as did the evening menu, although we didn't eat there.This is a really nice place to stay, right in the centre of Oughterard, with good staff, lovely rooms and great food. I really don't know what the previous review is about; must have been a bad day!
