When we decided to visit Ireland, we wanted to rent a cottage somewhere in County Galway that was close to Galway but far enough out to give us more of a taste of rural Ireland. Oughterard met these requirements. It is about 30 minutes from Galway and is located near Lough Corrib. Oughterard is popular for fishing, but there are also many sites to see within a short drive. Places we visited when we were in Oughterard included Galway, Roundstone, Clifden, Inishmore, Cong, and the Connemara.
The cottage we rented (Rhinebeck cottage) is on Glann Road. There are no house numbers, just sign posts with the cottage names. (For more on Rhinebeck cottage, see my tip "Rent a Cottage" in this section.) Rhinebeck cottage is close enough to walk to Oughterard. There is a nice path along the Owenriff river that goes right in to Oughterard. There are several pubs and a few shops in Oughterard, providing plenty of places to eat and get supplies. There is also a ferry on Lough Corrib that you can take to Ashford Castle and Cong.
