Gougane Barra Hotel - A Place to Unwind...


Our fifth-generation family-run hotel is well known for its warm welcome, great team from all over the world, wholesome food, personal service and welcoming atmosphere.

Tucked away in a romantic, glaciated valley in the south-west of Ireland and surrounded by mountains, our hotel is situated in a breath-taking position on the edge of Gougane Barra lake, right next to St Finbarr's island oratory.

We open seasonally from April to October each year. This year, due to the current global health pandemic, however, we are due to open our restaurant on Wednesday 1st July and be able to welcome overnight guests to the hotel from Monday 20th July, in line with HSE guidelines. We look forward to seeing you here later in the season.

Book a stay and come and make our home yours in Gougane Barra this season.
