Wonderful stay!
We had a lovely stay at Gougane Barra Hotel. Everyone working there was super helpful, friendly and attentive. Unfortunately we had only booked one night - but will definitely return - and hopefully soon!

Love this lakeside gem!
This is a truly special place nestled right on a lake with an abundance of hiking trails. The hotel also has a restaurant and the food is incredible. This would be a three-star property and the price reflects that it doesn't have the frills and updates of higher-end accommodations. I would recommend this charming hotel to anyone looking for a peaceful respite away from the hustle and bustle of cities.
