The Boat Inn is a nice little downtown tavern inn. It was very nice and quaint, right in the main square of Oughterard. The bar and food were quite good and Rory is a great host. Very knowledgeable and helpful and we had a great Irish breakfast. The heat was broken for a bit at night but they informed us right away and had it fixed fairly quickly. It is a bit noisy at night due to deliveries for the grocery store across the street. Nice areas to walk around down to the river and Loch. Centrally located in Connemara and a good place to base your exploration of the West of Ireland. Rory has great suggestions and information, be sure to ask him.
