What people are saying about Oughterard

What a joy to be able to take a trip without taking the car! What magnificent landscapes in Connemara, visit the village of Cong, and Kylemore Abbey. It's a pity that I don't speak enough English to understand all the comments of the guide who is really friendly.

Very pleasant excursion which allows you to discover magnificent landscapes as well as Irish culture and history thanks to Tommy - our very charming driver-guide. A little more time at Kylemore Abbey as well as Cong Village would be even better.

Our driver was amazing, funny, and knowledgeable. The serious were beautiful. I can't say enough good things.

It was truly interesting to learn about the bogs, The Abby, Connemara and Cong!

It was a fantastic day, great stops and great driver!
