Old fashioned (in the best sense of the word), Currarevagh House is a Victorian country manor romantically situated on the shores of Lough Corrib in 150 acres of private woodland. Built by the present owner's ancestors in 1842, it is still run more along the lines of a private country house rather then as an hotel, and the tranquil informality lends itself to those seeking a relaxing few days. Lough Corrib is famous for its wild brown trout fishing and Ghillies (guides) can be arranged at current rates.
There is an 18 hole golf course in Oughterard and five other courses within an hour's drive. The traditional Irish Country House atmosphere that Currarevagh provides offers a uniquely wonderful experience.
Having all Connemara (including the Aran Islands and The Burren) within easy reach for touring, Currarevagh is the perfect base for exploring the magnificent West of Ireland. Our own boats with engine provide guests with the opportunity of enjoying Lough Corrib, and picnics are prepared on request. There are many walks, both on our private estate and in the local area, including the recently upgraded and spectacular Western Way.
Currarevagh is the ideal place for that longer break, especially as the better known food guides highly recommend its classically simple, yet ultimately delicious, menus based on local produce. Dinner for non-residents by advance booking.
