“Delightful B&B-Ann and Patrick could not have been nicer!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2010

We stayed here our first night in Ireland. Ann and Patrick were wonderful, and their home was lovely. it was a short walk into a very small town, but there was just enough to keep us entertained for a morning. I would highly recommend this as a place to stay.

We have stayed at Riverwalk House on numerous occasions and keep coming back because of Ann and Pat's wonderful hospitality, the cleanliness and ambiance of the house, the luscious breakfasts and the grand location for touring, restaurants, etc. We highly recommend it to all travelers, whether business (a super quiet location, off the national road) or just touring (excellent location for fishing -- Lough Corrib -- or heading our into Connemara, with the 12 Bens Mountains, the Mamturks, Connemara National Park, Clifden village and castle, the Sky Road, Kylemore Abbey and Gothic Church, Lennaine, Cong Village and Ashford Castle, Quiet Man locations galore!).

Riverwalk House is ideally located just outside of the center of the town of Oughterard, a quick 5 minute walk to the town center. A beautiful river runs through the middle of the town, and Ann's house is just yards away from it.

The house is magnificent, impeccably decorated, warm and welcoming. Ann is equally warm and welcoming, and couldn't have made us feel any more welcomed. She was a delight to talk to, and spent a great deal of time with us at breakfast, which was fantastic, by the way. Amazing coffee!

I'm so glad we discovered Riverwalk House. I am definitely planning on going back, but hope to be able to spend more than one night next time. Oughterard is a fantastic base from which to explore this most incredible part of Ireland.

The B&B was immaculately presented, and we were warmly greeted. Breakfast was sensational. It was just a quick 5 minute walk into the township of Oughterard along the river. The gateway to the most beautiful Connemarra. Stay here and you wont be disappointed.

my husband and i spent two days at this beautiful b & b. ann and patrick are wonderful! the rooms are super clean, bright and comfy. her delicious breakfasts are served in a sunny room with a view of her lovely garden. the town is very small (three minutes walk to town) and quiet but if you are looking for more, you are only 30 minutes drive from galway city.

This is the first B&B we stayed at in Ireland. Very friendly Hostess and the area is our kind of location. We're from NYC, so we were looking to get away from big cities. Oughterard is peaceful, but still had shops and places of interest. We liked the small pubs and the town itself was lovely. We enjoyed conversation with the older locals- (We were looking to get away from kids too...just being honest) so this area was great for that as well. This B&B is perfect because town is a 5 minute walk away. Not too far from the town you'll find some scenic areas as well in just a short drive.

  • Liked — Peaceful, relaxing location.
  • Disliked — Everything was great! No Complaints.
