Camillaun Lodge & Angling Centre
Ranked #11 of 23 Oughterard B&B and Inns
Reviewed 23 August 2017

This small B & B is absolutely wonderful. We stayed there for two nights so my husband could fish for Brown Trout. Deidre Forde, our hostess, was welcoming,extremely thoughtful, well organized, and delightful. Our simple room on the first floor was clean and comfortable, breakfast delicious, and the setting ,with the small boats to rent for fishing, and the lovely walk into town quite beautiful. Because my husband had recently had back surgery, Deidre arranged for a seat with a back on it to be placed in the boat. And she arranged for the guide, Paddy to go out with my husband. Since we arrived via bus from Galway we took a taxi ( note there are only 2 taxis in the town so getting one is not easy) to the B&B, but the day we left it was pouring rain, and Diedre`s sister, Helen kindly drove us to the bus stop in town. This is a charming , comfortable, very special place in a very special part of the world.

Very friendly B&B with games room and only a 5 min walk into town. Perfect for fishermen as has access onto the lake and boats for hire. Clean rooms with a tastey breakfast. Would really recommend this place to anyone in the area.

We found this gem on one of the web sites. The price attracted us and what a find . Ougherard is about 40 minutes from Galway were we would have normally stayed on business. We decided to give Ougherard a visit . The lodge is about a 10 minute walk from the centre of the town . The town is geared to tourism, with good eating places on both sides of the street.
The Camillaun Lodge is geared for fishing. The pontoons are beside the edge of the garden . Lots of boats just waiting to be used.
The rooms are well set up and comfortable beds.
The breakfast was first class.

Room Tip: All rooms are on two levels . The hotel is in its own ground with the river flowing just over the he...

I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Camillaun Lodge. Really nice vibe to the place and I felt very relaxed after I met the hosts. The bedroom and en-suite were spotlessly clean yet full of charm and majorly comfortable so much so that I was asleep within 5 minutes of putting the head on the pillow!

Breakfast was superb and the hosts could not do enough for you. WIFI coverage was excellent and speedy. I'll definitely go back and stay again.

Being an avid fisherman, I've stayed in a lot of b&b's in Galway, Connemara and the Oughterard area. Camillaun is without a doubt the best out there. The bedrooms are superbly furnished with very comfortable beds (very important after a long day's fishing) and excellent en-suites. The breakfast is delicious with a great selection to choose from including some of Deirdre's home baked delights!

As for our hosts, two of the nicest people you will ever meet and I look forward to seeing them both on my next visit.

10 out of 10!!
