“Just Breathtaking Views”
Reviewed 5 December 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Having stayed at Sparrowhawk house for 10 days in late November was absolutely the best part of our 2 week vacation in Ireland. The house is gorgeous, spacious, and had breathtaking views of the landscape from every window in the house. Niamh and Cian were so helpful with the questions we had and promptly returned your phone calls. Part of the adventure was knowing you are on a working farm and being able to see the cows, horses, and Stanley, the donkey, walking down the road. Also, we had many friendly visits from Oscar, the cute little dog and two other dogs that were friendly. That made my sister-in-laws day! I can't say enough nice things about this house and would recommend it to couples, families, and any small group! One final note, we were sad to go as we drove into Dublin to finish our trip, my brother said he would be happy going back to the States after the 10 days in Oughterard because the town, the people, and the house made our Ireland vacation the best!

“This house is amazing!”

We enjoyed our time at Sparrowhawk House so much! The house itself is so beautiful and the surrounding area is to die for! The house is mere minutes from the downtown area and only 25 minutes to Galway. The house had everything we needed and is perfect for a family with children. Would recommend to anyone, you are sure to enjoy it!

“Great cottage in stunning surroundings”
Reviewed 20 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

Just returned from a 3 night stay. The cottage is large and very well equipped with lovely kitchen, several seating areas, dining room over looking the lake and wood burning fire.

We were greeted by two very friendly dogs upon arrival and throughout our time there. I think they live in the house at the top of the lane.

Oughterard is only a few minutes by car and you are surrounded by amazing scenery in all directions.

Good internet speed.
