We enjoyed our stay in Oughterard (4 nights). The house is secluded, surrounded by herds of sheeps, horses and a donkey. The house is designed to emphasize the great outdoor views, and is well equipped. In the village, we recommend The Greenway Café and the Powers Thatch for meals, and O Sullivan for bakery. Allow yourself a day to drive around the Connemara peninsula; it is worth it.

Very nice and very spacious house. Everything is available although the dishwasher was not connected, and a BBQ would have been welcome. Very nice sights, modern house like on pictures, and centrally located for visiting from Cliffs of Moher and the Connemara. Very well situated. This lodge is a must do for people who enjoy privacy, and space.

This is the perfect place to stay if you are looking to stay in the countryside, literally in the middle of nowhere! The house is very big and comfortable and the farm next door had very friendly horses that made our stay so much more interesting! Would definitely recommend this place.

First things first--the house is secluded--down a bumpy lane, past pastures, more pastures, and then you see it. Perched up high, built into the landscape, a house that is a work of art. Views the likes of which I've never seen--looking out over the lake, surrounded by green fields, sheep dotting the landscape, the fading light in the evenings unbelievable. The funny thing is, the house isn't even finished yet. The upstairs was off limits and locked up as it it under construction. No bother, as the four of us had plenty of room. The interior was lovely and relaxed. A family vibe w/ lots of toys and cosy corners in an open floor plan. The town was a curvy but not long drive--20 minutes? Quite posh, with lots of restaurants, shops, beautiful homes. A great spot for exploring Galway or a great spot for reading lots of books and staring at the sky.

This house is fantastic, it's filled with the light of the sky, nature all around is quiet, view is beautifull. For family with young children, there are many games. The glann valley is beautifull and well-located to reach within the hour (+/- 30 min) all the places of the Connemara.

What a brilliant place to stay, the style of the house and the view was breath taking. We took our two kids and there was so many games and toys for them they loved it. Highly recommend staying here
