Welcome to Oughterard Holiday Hostel & Angling Centre

The scenic village of Oughterard is situated approx 27km from the bustling city of Galway and nestled on the shores of Lough Corrib one of the great western lakes. Here you will find your ideal base for touring Connemara whether you are backpacking, cycling, walking or driving. Oughterard has much to offer all it's visitors both young and old with plenty to see and do and Connemara right on it's doorstep or soak up the colourful and energetic city of the tribes just 20 minutes drive. Oughterard really does provide the best of both worlds.

Here at Oughterard Holiday Hostel & Angling Centre we provide such a service. With two custom built spring fed lakes stocked with rainbow and brown trout, our guests can enjoy the art of flyfishing and even try and catch their own dinner. After a long and busy day touring you can cook up a feast in our large fully equipped kitchen and later relax in our bright and airy lounge soaking up the view of our lakes and surrounds. Oughterard Holiday Hostel provides a range of accommodation to suit all needs including both private, family and dorm rooms at exceptional rates. Groups also catered for and school tours welcome.

So what are you waiting for? Head for the west of Ireland and enjoy all it's wonder and beauty.
