Forest Hill.
 

Forest Hill is a beautifully purpose-built Guest House which allows guests to holiday in a relaxing atmosphere. Quiet and peaceful, Forest Hill is the place to "get away from it all", situated within
only a two minute walk from the lovely lake of Lough Corrib and only 2 miles from the historic village of Oughterard. It is also a great base from which to explore the famous Connemara area with its stony mountains, turf bogs and numerous lakes. Kylemore Abbey and the renowned scenic Sky Road are only a short drive away.

If your interests lay in outdoor pursuits, you may just park your car in our private car park and set off on the many breathtaking walks surrounding Forest Hill. Others may chose to take a drive through the mountains and explore the little towns nestled among them, such as Clifden.

Others still may want to shop 'til they drop! Oughterard has a nice selection of craft shops as well as Galway City being only 17 miles from Oughterard, it is the ideal place to pick up European fashions and Irish souvenirs alike.

In the evenings you may chose to enjoy a home cooked meal in our candle-lit dining room or go into Oughterard to listen to traditional Irish music while dining in one of the many fine restaurants. There is also a lively night life in its more than 10 pubs! Find out more about Oughterard.

Man of Aran Cottage.
 

The Man of Aran Cottage and Bed and Breakfast provides delightful old-world ambiance on the Irish isle, Inish Mor--largest of the Aran Isles. Featuring a turn of the century cottage situated on the Atlantic shore and surrounded by wild rose and saxifrage, the Man of Aran is a peaceful and romantically wind-swept retreat.

Joe and Maura Wolfe have owned and operated the Man of Aran Cottage on Inishmore for over a decade. During that time they have turned the small system of buildings and restaurant into a first class operation. The cottages are cozy and well maintained with an old world charm that has to be experienced to truly be appreciated. Joe is an avid organic gardener with nearly half the acre of land the cottage is situated on given over to this pursuit.

Maura is native to the Aran Isles though she spent many years of her life in London, England where she took training as a chef; a skill she applied and mastered working in Buckingham Palace. Utilizing the excellent produce from Joe's garden, Maura conjurs masterful meals that she serves in the small restaurant located in the main building. The soups she creates, in particular, are original, unique and exquisite; and Joe, while professing no artistic talent, fabricates simply amazing salads out of his garden, featuring a medley of greens as well as many flowers including squash flower and even pansies.

The Man of Aran Cottage is perched over the North Atlantic and surrounded by a stark and breathtaking wilderness of open meadows filled with wild roses, saxifrage and ferns. The coast itself is rocky and delightful to explore, with an abundance of wildlife and tidal pools to hold one's interest. As a whole the island is sparsely populated with very few autos to impede hikers or bicyclists alike. Within a 15 minute walk of the cottage lies Dun Aengus, one of the finest Celtic stone circle forts to be found in Europe. There is also a village nearby with restaurants, pubs and several boutiques as well as authentic Irish sweater shops. You'll be amazed to find that many of the most familiar sweater patterns seen throughout the world originated right there on the Aran Isles.

Rockmount House.
 

Rockmount House sits on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean, and offers breathtaking views of the scenic Sky Road. Situated 5 km west of Clifden town.

If you really want to get away from it all, then Rockmount can offer you the complete stress free holiday. On arrival your hosts Paddy & Anne Conroy guarantee you a very warm welcome.

From the front of our house you can view the beautiful gardens and the mountains which lead to the upper Sky Road where the scenery can only be described as spectacular. Or take a two minute walk through the rugged landscape at the back which brings you out along the cliffs, where looking south you can see the Errislannan Peninsula, and looking east you can view Clifden Bay. You might also catch a glimpse of the dolphins. There is also a private walking trail near to the house.

If deep sea fishing is what you enjoy, then a daily cruise out along the Atlantic can be arranged, or maybe just strolling along the coastline toward Clifden town, where you can also view the magnificent old ruins of Clifden Castle on your way.
