When we first visited Camillaun Lodge, we were immediately struck by the welcoming atmosphere that our walkers would inevitably feel after a day of tough hiking. With Deirdre’s kind nature, and the high standard of rooms in this hotel, we’re happy to recommend Camillaun Lodge.

Hillwalk Tours – Hiking in Connemara and the West of Ireland

The best B&B during our 2 weeks in Ireland. Deidre & Greg was great host but not the type to talk their guest to death. The rooms were full of nice, family antiques and plenty of rooms to relax in. We played billards, basketball, used the hot tub, and used the tennis courts. We loved that you could walk across the bridge into the village for dinner. Our family rented a boat for the day and caught some pike. This was the perfect place to relax for our last 3 days in Ireland. Our upstair’s room was huge with a nice size bathroom too. The WiFi was limited in our room but in all other parts of the house, it worked fine.

Would love to be there now!Barbara H, Texas

Nous avons passé 2 nuits dans ce B&B. Tout était très bien. Nous sommes arrivés tard (22h), mon mari avait demandé des fleurs et une carte aux propriétaires car c’était mon anniversaire : ils l’ont fait sans problème, à un tarif (d’après mon mari…) “très abordable”, et en ajoutant des chocolats. C’était très bien. Nous avons profité du jacuzzi mis à disposition gratuitement, après une journée de marche dans le Connemara, c’est vraiment top! Il y a aussi un court de Tennis. Le petit déjeuner est très bon. Nous conseillons cet endroit. Seul mini point négatif : le Wifi marche dans toute la maison… sauf dans notre chambre! Ahah! read more

Trés bon B&B, propre, fonctionnel, installations agréables et gratuitesSssandyyy, Var

We stayed in early August and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As soon as we arrived, Deirdre told us how to get into town by walking down a lovely footpath which is next to the lodge. We strolled over the bridge , along the waterfront and before we knew it, we were coming out on a little side street right in town. We went for a few pints,a lovely dinner and strolled back with our wine. We settled in our room with the amazing wooded and flowered view and enjoyed a glass or two of fine red wine. In the morning, we enjoyed a lovely breakfast and Deirdre’s hospitality. The proprietors are friendly and accommodating but not intrusive and provide the direction you may need without being invasive. They were lovely. The Camillaun Lodge would definitely be at the top of our list of B&Bs to return to! Enjoy!

Excellent stay at Camillaun LodgeEyyelash, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

My room was spacious and nicely decorated, with hardwood floors. Breakfast was really good, and the breakfast room overlooking the garden was both stylish and cosy. Deirdre informed me really well on all the options in the area. The location couldn’t be better, in a woodland area only 5 minutes’ walk from Oughterard’s main square.

Well-run!Osopolar Tromso, Tromso, Norway

We stayed here one night in late June. It was wonderful. It is an easy 5 minute walk to town for pubs and restaurants. The house sits on a good bit of land on a river. They have a tennis court and my son and I played until amost 11pm (it stays light very late there!). The rooms were nice and breakfast was good. We rented a boat from them and went out on the lake which is dotted with islands. After some looking we found the island that has the ruins of an incredibly ancient monestary. The etching on the stones look half pagan/half christian. I wish we had more time here – it would have been a great base camp for exploring conemmara. It is a very peacefull place – a great break from the huslte and bustle of Dublin and Galway.

Great day in OughterardHavanario, Charlotte, NC

Deidre & Greg certainly know how to run a B & B! They made us feel very welcome in their lovely home. A nice bedroom with en suite. A lounge, dining room, large games room, extra lounge area, tennis court, garden, & hot tub. All that could be used at any time. Plus tea, coffee and cake available 24/7. What more could you ask for? I went to fish on the Corrib & Greg sorted me out a gillie etc. He couldn’t have been more helpful if he tried. The boats are excellent. Deidre supplied us with a wonderful breakfast, & a packed lunch for me whilst out fishing. A short walk into Outerard & a variety of pubs & restaurants to choose from, all with good food & drink. We will certainly book again when we are next in the area as we couldn’t have found anywhere better.

Brilliant B&BCroakingfrog, England

Spent a really relaxing weekend in Oughterard and we were so glad that we picked Camillaun Lodge. Deirdre and Gregg were so welcoming and friendly. Our room was perfect. The Lodge is in the most beautiful spot, right on the banks of the river and a footbridge close by means it’s only a 5 minute stroll into the village on foot. Breakfast was fabulous and we hope to visit again.

Perfect B&B in Idyllic locationUnz13, Dublin, Ireland

We stayed here at Camillaun in mid September and loved it. Greg was wonderfully welcoming and great to chat with. His wife, Deidre was also very friendly and gave us some great ideas for hiking in the Connemara area. Soon after arriving, Deidre welcomed us with a tray of tea and desserts. (Their dog, Spud, was also very friendly.) The beautiful and eclectic décor around the house was so fun to look at. Our room was clean, and the property was beautiful. There is a river that runs right next to the property with a lovely foot bridge over it for easy access into town. After our hike in Connemara, we came home to the B&B and hopped in their relaxing hot tub. In the mornings, we had a wonderful breakfast. Cereals, waffles, eggs, sausage, bacon, and toast were just a few of the options! We only wish we would have had more time to venture out onto the river and lake.

Wonderful rooms with wonderful hosts!Erin B, Tehachapi, California

This was the best B&B we stayed in during our two weeks trip in Ireland. Wonderful hostess and an absolutely beautiful room with skylights and lovely ensuite. So clean, tastefully decorated, and great price too! We had asked for help finding a guide for my boyfriend’s fishing trip and by the time we arrived it was all arranged. Can’t say enough good things about this place – my boyfriend is already planning his Man Adventure with a fishing buddy for next year, and want to come back here. Great place and super helpful. And we loved Spud the wee dog! Location was also excellent as it was just a short 5min walk into town for a bite, and some lovely walking paths right in the village. The boat hire was set up at their own docks right on a little stream that led directly to the river.
