Only 27 km from Galway City, Oughterard is the ideal centre for touring the west of Ireland, enjoying it's magnificent scenery or its sophisticated 'craic'.


Oughterard is a traditional fishing town on the western shores of Lough Corrib, Irelands second largest lake with 365 islands, some of them inhabited.

There is a relaxed and friendly atmosphere that makes everyone feel welcome, not to mention, a wealth of quality restaurants and pubs with traditional Irish music.
Oughterard village has several excellent craft shops including Fuchsia Crafts and Connemara Candles.

"A more beautiful village can scarcely be seen than Oughterard. It stands upon Lough Corrib; picturesque and romantic. The river Feogg comes bashing over the rocks and by woods until it passes the town and meets the lake"

William Makepeace Thackeray

Summer Events

The tourist season really begins with the annual hatch of the 'Mayfly' from the lake bed, drawing fish and anglers to the waters of the Corrib. Many take part in the international angling competitions centred in Oughterard in April & May.
The Curragh Racing Championship takes place in June, as does the Open Week at the golf club.
The Oughterard pony races are run in July Annually, and the Oughterard Agricultural show, one of the largest in the country, attracts crowds to the village on the last Sunday in August.


County Galway offers the very best in game, coarse or sea angling with Loughs Corrib and Mask, Galway Bay and many other rivers and lakes close by.

The region is also a haven for horse-riding enthusiasts, with treks of varying lengths organised.

The West of Ireland is renowned as a golfing haven. There are several championship links courses within driving distance as well as Oughterard 18-hole parkland course.

Take a cruise along the Connemara Coastline, or on Killary, Ireland's only Fjord, or perhaps on Lough Corrib, Ireland's second largest lake.

The location in the center of a walkers paradise with the Western Way starting in Oughterard and runing along Lough Corrib.
