Oughterard is a traditional village nestled beside the largest lake in Ireland, Lough Corrib. The village sits at the start of the Connemara Mountain Range and is only a short drive from the vibrant city of Galway. With its traditional, colourful stone shopfronts and a 16th century Aughnanure Castle, it perfectly combines old Irish charm with contemporary levels of service and comfort. Further unique attractions include lovely gift shops, cruises along the lake, an 18 hole golf club and delightful eateries. The final crowning jewel of the village is the lovely Owenriff River running through it, beginning in the Connemara mountains and flowing, at the edge of town, into Lough Corrib. Railway Lodge, Canrawer is located just 1.5km from the village and is nestled on 1.25 acres/0.5 hectares of mature established gardens, a beautiful peaceful home, just 20 miles/32 kms to Galway City. Built in 1996, Railway Lodge was run as a guest house for many years and benefits from having five large ensuite bedrooms & four reception rooms.
