"My wife and I have been to Ireland each of the last three years for about a months stay. We travelled all over the island and loved it all, but especially Oughterard. We spent 5 weeks there last Fall. Oughterard is like a second home. It was the Best time we've had anywhere!"
"If I ever moved to Ireland, I would choose to live in Oughterard. It has a great community. There is always something going on and my family and I were made so welcome! It is very beautiful and the children loved the playground. There is so much to do as a family. We really enjoyed our holiday."
