I recently returned from living overseas myself, and having traveled much throughout the world I have often had to stay in hotels and guests houses. So many times I wanted to enjoy the natural ways and comforts of my own home when traveling like this; and have always wanted to put these observations and experiences into a short rentals options for visitors coming to my place - Ireland and the lovely Oughterard. I deeply understand what guests most want when deciding on their holiday options - something very special, and superbly comfortable with an excellent hi-tech backbone. And excellent local information that quickly allows them settle in, to enjoy the most from their special time here.
