This was our first B&B of the trip. Dolores and John had a couple of exchange students at the house who greeted us and were very nice. We met Dolores a little bit later and it just felt even more like home from there on out! We really enjoyed our time here and the connection with them that is was a little hard to leave! We appreciated the hospitality and the genuine kindness. It made our honeymoon that much more special! BTW- Thanks for the Bud! :)

My boyfriend and I stayed here with my best friend and her boyfriend last October and we TRULY could not have had a better experience. This is by FAR my favorite B&B ever. Dolores was truly such a delight and had such great advice for us travelers. I am so glad we met her. From the moment we stepped in to her home until the moment she left she was so kind and fun. I know this is a late review, but better late then never! Thank you Dolores for hosting us last October! Hopefully we will be back soon.

I can't say enough great things about our stay at Forest Hill B&B! Dolores was a pure delight from the minute we came through the door. Our room was clean and accommodating. The house was located on a beautiful quiet hill with breathtaking scenery. Breakfast was amazing and she had the best tea of all our stops! Our 9-year old had a sore throat and she even gave us a jar of honey to help soothe the pain, from her personal pantry. We didn't receive our vouchers and she worked with us to make alternate Paypal arrangements! If you want a friendly, personal, and a professional B&B, this is THE place to stay. We stayed in 5 different B&Bs and this was our favorite for overall experience. Thank you Dolores!! You were wonderful and made our trip extra special!

Delores is a very helpful and friendly host who has good knowledge and information about the area. Be aware the rooms are very small so there is little room for suitcases (but this is also true for most of the B&Bs we stayed in through out Ireland). It is also somewhat noisy as we could hear most everything that was going on through out the house from our room. The B&B is a ways from the village on a very narrow and very curvy road with a narrow driveway entrance. Larger cars be aware. The village is nice but small with a couple of very good restaurants.

Hi Carlos , How are you , I was very surprised to read your review after the warm goodbye and how you had mentioned how much you enjoyed your stay, Our rooms are the normal standard size but you did state that you found all the b &b s throughout Ireland that u stayed in not a size to your satisfaction ,, I must state that b&b s are in a persons home they are not hotels , The road to our house while “curves” is a beautiful road overlooking the lake , Country roads are winding , The village of Oughterard is known all over as a beautiful fishing village and boasts eleven excellent eating venues , Perhaps on hindsight a larger town would have been more suited to your needs , Hope you left Ireland with some good memories , Every good wish to you , Dolores ,
