We booked the lodge as we were doing the night kayaking in Castletownsend. It was great for that as it was just a 7 minute drive to the pier. The lodge was comfy and clean. The breakfast was really nice. Lovely owners.

Four friends planned a night away in West Cork and chose Lis- Ardagh Lodge. We were greeted with a warm welcome from Carol and Jim and the aroma of baking soda bread from the kitchen. Our connecting rooms were spotlessly clean and with beautifully comfortable beds. We sat on the decking overlooking the terraced gardens and enjoyed the views, birdsong and sunshine.Our breakfast choices were superb and the generous portions were fresh and delicious. This is the perfect getaway in this magical part of Ireland. We'll be back.
Carol and Jim made us immediately feel comfortable and welcome in their lovely and tastefully decorated home, always finding time for a friendly chat or welcome recommendations for local travel and restaurants. From the entry drive to the lovely landscaped gardens and interior decorating, the hosts have planned and provided a relaxing and enjoyable environment for the benefit of their guests. Carol's made-to-order breakfasts were a delicious start to our day of exploring. Being within walking distance of the village restaurant and pub was an added benefit for us.
