Waterfall Lodge was among the best-appointed B&Bs we visited during our 10 days in-country! The waterfall location is stunning! Excellent food, and great chocolates (though we ate then all, so there may be no more!) .

Waterfall Lodge is a terrific B and B. The hosts, Kathleen and John, were ever so friendly and helpful to us. The house is beautifully decorated in antiques and old-timey furniture, and is very homey in feeling. The rooms are spacious and had lovely views over the river and waterfall. We went with another couple and their room was as...

This is a beautiful old house in a magnificent setting. Oughterard Village is suffering from the recent economic decline but do not let that put you off from staying here as the house is just outside the village itself. The house has many interesting features and you really feel that you are staying in someone's home. The bedrooms were truly...

My daughter and I stayed two days/nights at Waterfall Lodge in Oughterard and enjoyed every moment of it. The house is very nice, Victorian in style, roomy rooms, good beds. A beautiful garden with - of course - a waterfall, large trees and lots of flowers. From the first moment we were made very welcome. Breakfast was wonderful, choose whatever...

My wife and I started our cycling tour at the Waterfall Lodge. The owner, Kathleen, was very kind to us as she welcomed us into her home. The place is situated off the highway there in Oughterard. It is in a beautiful setting right next to a stream that, of course, has a waterfall. Kathleen had a secure place for...

Charming and cozy with spacious rooms and hosts with warm smiles. Breakfast was wonderfully prepared and served in the sunny victorian room. The grounds are just lovely. We all took the waterfall walk along the river that forms the waterfall and enjoyed the rural landscape. Easy trip in to Galway for our city-lovers, too.

We stayed here with my in-laws and enjoyed ourselves. The grounds are pretty and the house has wonderful ambiance with Victorian furnishings, wood floors and two guest parlors. The room was spacious and the bath was small, but updated and functional. Kathleen was a fun hostess and sent my husband on a walk around the surrounding area which we culminated...

Me and my partner stayed here at the weekend and had a wonderful time. The house was just gorgeous, rooms were so spacious and pretty. The waterfall beside the house just really adds to the whole relaxed atmosphere. The breakfast was amazing and the owners were just so friendly and accommodating! Would advise anyone to visit.

Waterfall Lodge is one of the best B&Bs we have ever experienced (and we have travelled far and wide!)...no wonder we keep coming back. A warm welcome is backed by beautiful rooms and a gourmet breakfast, while the house is tasteful and elegant without losing the coziness which makes a real difference to guests. Tumbling water ringing in the night...

Kathleen and her husband are the most caring hosts you could ever dreamed of. Oughterard is a nice place with all the pubs and restaurants you could fancy and Galway is just a 25 mn drive. Large bedrooms with four poster beds and antiques, very cosy though, and a breakfast second to none. The waterfalls are roaring in the garden...
