  • "Absolutely beautiful cottage and fantastic location."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and Collen and Raymond were fantastic hosts. The cottage itself had everything we needed and the location was also fantastic, just outside Oughterard where there are shops, restaurants and a great modern playpark for the kids. Also not too far from Galway city and a great base for exploring the wider county as we did. The best part for us though was the significantly sized wooded area in the grounds of the cottage. Our 4 year old daughter absolutely loved exploring this and it quickly became known as the enchanted forest.

    Thank you so much Seán for such high praise. We are delighted to hear that you enjoyed your stay. It was a pleasure to meet your lovely family. Maybe on your next visit you'll be able to find the fairy trails and doors. Property Owner

  • "Andrew and I had a fabulous time here."

    Feel so relaxed, just like home. Staying in this stone cottage is just so special. The fire place is unique and is a landmark of the house. Colleen and Raymond are excellent hosts, they make us feel part of the local neighbourhood. We cooked every nights as the kitchen facilities are good and plenty of grocery shops & butchers nearby. Just a few reminders to people who want to book Dun na Ron. The gate to the cottage is narrow, so if you have a big car need to pay attention when driving in. This cottage has no wifi provided, the smart phone reception is 3G only, but we still managed. Overall it’s a great place to stay. If you are traveling to the west of Ireland, this should be your choice to stay.

    Thank you Dorothy and Andrew. I'm so glad to hear that you had everything you needed and were pleased with your stay. Not only were you made feel like locals, in 100 years time, the census will show you as part of our history! It's lovely to think about that. Property Owner

    This is an ideal location from which to explore Connamara. Oughterard and Moycullen are lovely towns, with supermarkets, takeaways and dining options ( unfortunately outdoor during our stay). Coleen and Raymond are wonderful hosts- welcoming, friendly and attentive. If you are looking for a haven of peace and tranquility, look no further than Dun na Rón. Jo & Paul Taylor Co. Meath

  • "Don na Ron this a little gem in Ireland."

    It takes a step back in time and makes you feel so relaxed. The wooded area and gardens are beautiful and little surprises throughout. Colleen and Raymond are lovely and helpful when needed. The area is beautiful and only a 1/2 hour drive to Galway city. If you are looking for a quiet and peaceful break then this is the place I highly recommend Don na Ron.

    It was really well equipped with a lovely cosy stove which we used every night. The gardens were beautiful. I think the addition of an electric shower with be good though.

    Hosts were very friendly - Colleen even bought us over a sponge cake and custard when she had been baking during the week! Pretty well equipped but the kitchen isn't big so don't get too ambitious. Very quiet and private with lovely wooded garden for you to wander in.

  • "What a fabulous little cottage, we really enjoyed our stay at Dun na Ron."

    We were given a warm friendly welcome from Coleen & Carmel and got great hospitality. Very private, quiet and peaceful. If winding down and relaxing are what you need this is the perfect place. With Galway and Connemara short trips away and an abundance of other more local attractions. Dun na Ron ticked all the right boxes for us. Jane & Tommy. Oxford.

    Colleen was a wonderful host greeting us on the first day with fresh eggs and homemade marmalade (yum!) She was available when we needed her but we were able to enjoy the seclusion otherwise. My son very much enjoyed the games and toys that were in the cottage and exploring the generous yard. Location was perfect within walking distance from the lake and a 2 minute drive from town. Fantastic vacation!

  • "We had a lovely holiday here,despite the weather (Storm Emma)."

    The owners could not have been more accommodating. They allowed us to stay an extra night (FOC) due to the weather conditions. They found plenty of things to occupy our two young children whilst we were unable to leave the property. Delicious cake and marmalade left for us on arrival. A perfect, cosy cottage for a lovely Irish getaway. Great base for exploring (when the weather allows).

The property

Oughterard 1.5 miles.

A cosy little stone detached cottage, close to the town of Oughterard in world-famous County Galway.

Set in a wooded area and with exposed stone walls...

About the location


Galway 17 miles.

The traditional village of Oughterard is found in the west of Ireland on the shores of Lough Corrib, at the start of the Connemara Mountain range and close to the famous Western Way. Home to the Oughterard 18-hole championship golf course, Derroura Mountain Bike Trail and Aughnanure Castle, there are lots of things to see and do, and located next to Lough Corrib, Oughterard is great for lovers of fishing. Just a short drive away in Roscahil is the pretty Brigit's Garden; with four main gardens and places to play, sit and relax, this is a great day out for all the family. Only 17 miles from Oughterard lies Galway City, where you can discover some of Ireland's long and varied history; visit Lynch's Castle, or trace the origin of the famous Claddagh Ring, which originated in a village near the shore of Galway Bay. A lovely lough-side village, all year round.

Note: Property sleeps 2 adults and 2 children
