  • "June 12th We spent a wonderful week in Dun na Rón, a delightful cottage in an idyllic setting."

    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.

  • "Lovely location and really liked the cottage, the owners are exceptionally friendly bringing us fresh eggs from their chickens and the latest area information."

    The only down side was the low pressure from the shower and wi-fi for those that like it would be a nice option.

  • "Sweet little cottage, vintage decor, very clean."

    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.

    Perfect for relaxing and enjoying the peace and quiet yet just 2 minutes from Oughterard. Colleen and Raymond the owners are on hand to offer advice and help without being in any way intrusive. We really enjoyed our time there.

  • "What a wonderful place to stay, full of charn and character with all the modern amenities!"

    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).

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
