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.
