“Overall the holiday and accommodation was very enjoyable.”
However, I feel the photograph of the house was a little misleading. It cleverly disguised the fact that there is another rented property right next door and therefor we had close neighbours for the week. I hasten to add that the couple next door were nothing but friendly but my expectations were of a secluded stand alone property as portrayed by the listing photograph.

“We had a wonderful time at Fair Winds, from the warm welcome upon arrival to the exceptional comfort of this beautifully furnished, spacious and well-situated home for our holiday.”
The location enables easy access to the stunning Connemara region, and is also a great place for a quiet relaxing stay.
“Lovely couple and really friendly - first time they had rented out their cottage ...”
Lovely couple and really friendly - first time they had rented out their cottage - so it was new experience for them so offered some minor tips on inventory things but cottage was clean and well managed in lovely location close to nearby town but remote enough to be private with nearby lake - enjoyed our stay - thanks
“Excellent location for peace and quiet with easy access to the national park.”
Warm welcome from owner and cottage comfortable light and airy. TV and cooking facilities intermittent problems which some documenting might have assisted. Our holiday was most enjoyable. Please express my appreciation to the owner
“We have just got back from here after a fabulous week lovely house and the owner is very nice and very helpful.”
the house is situated next to Lough Corrib which is ideal for anglers,but for us it was the close proximity to Connemara national park and the wild Atlantic way will be going back again for definite hopefully in the near future
“There were a few things amiss.”
The TV in the lounge was not usable other than for DVD playing. The aerial cable was broken for terrestrial TV and although there was a Sky box present no service was connected. There are no side tables in the lounge so nowhere to put a cup or glass down other than on the floor, similarly in the bedrooms. There was a leak from the en suite toilet which meant the floor was often wet. The kitchen was poorly equipped with simple things missing such as a chopping board. Also the kitchen decor and fittings are "tired". On the plus side the property is wonderfully located and our hosts were friendly. The rooms and garden are huge and with a bit more TLC this house would be top notch.
“We all had a great time the house was lovely.”
The owner was very friendly and she gave us lots of information we might need to get around. We will definitely stay there again I would give this house and location a 5 star .

About the location
OUGHTERARD, COUNTY GALWAY
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.
