We are a family of four with two young boys and had a delightful week at Kathleen's cottage where she also runs a B & B in the main house. The welcome was warm and friendly and we found a beautiful, spacious house which was spotlessly clean and had everything that we needed for our week long stay. The house also benefits from a very large garden with chickens, ducks a a vegetable patch, from which we were told to help ourselves. Our children loved letting the hens out in the morning and hunting for the eggs and thoroughly enjoyed playing with Scooby the spaniel. Kathleen's hospitality was second to none and one morning she brought us freshly baked scones and home made blackcurrant jam which were delicious!
Oughterard is a ten minute walk away from the cottage - a pretty village and ideal base for exploring Galway, Conemarra and County Clare. Good facilities in the village included two supermarkets, traditional Irish bars and some good restaurants. The boys loved the castle and the pony trekking which were both within five minutes of the cottage and highly recommended.
We had a wonderful week at Kathleen's lovely house and I would highly recommend it to families and couples alike.
