Stopped for a night. Made to feel exceptionally welcome. Hugs all round. The accommodation though basic, was clean and comfortable. The property is quite isolated so ideal for some real peace and quiet. The owner Delores was just adorable as was her sister Pauline who helps with breakfasts. Plenty of choice at breakfast time. I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Dolores is so friendly and welcomes us as if we belong to her family since ages. Not only the most written "warm welcome". Hugs and so good chats together. We sadly stayed only for one day. Two more days and we could get a place on the family wall :)) Dolores, thank you for all. Also give Schneider a big... More

I have never stayed somewhere that felt so much like home. Travelling on my own was daunting but Dolores welcomed me like an old friend. The room was clean, beautifully made up and had a breathtaking view. I was worried it might be cold after reading the previous review but that review couldnt have been further from the truth! The...

We stayed here for 3 nights. Fantastic welcome from the hosts Dolores and John. Greeted with tea/coffee and delicious homemade cakes. Breakfast was a feast of full irish with homemade bread and numerous cups of tea or coffee. Dolores and John were extremely helpful providing maps and giving detailed descriptions of places to see. Nothing was too much trouble. They... More

We travelled to Oughterard for a wedding party in November with our three young children. On arrival at the guest house we were greeted by Dolores and her family and given a most warm welcome. We had tea and warm scones with jam which was perfect after our long drive. My youngest child had developed a sore throat on the... More

Traveling in Ireland, I have almost always had amazing experiences with those who run bed and breakfasts and hotels. Unfortunately, Forest Hill Bed and Breakfast was the worst BnB I visited in Ireland, and I would not recommend staying there. I booked Forest Hill for two nights, as I was really looking forward to seeing Connemara for the first time.... More

A wonderful place to start our Western Way trek. Delores was welcoming and drove us into the village for dinner. The next day she packed us a lunch and reviewed the day's map with us. A friendly, welcoming place. Classic Irelans!

Recently on a trip from London we stayed here and were warmly greeted by Dolores and served tea and scones on arrival. The view of the lad was breath taking and the gardens were out of this world. Bet value for money , breakfast was amazing will definitely be back
