We just enjoyed a lovely relaxing weekend in the fabulous Blue Room in this stunning Georgian country house. Robert could not have been more welcoming. He produced both a lovely private dinner for my friend’s birthday surprise and tasty satisfying breakfasts all hand cooked with care. Our stay was just fabulous from beginning to end, thanks again

My family visited Marlagh Lodge for my Fathers 60th Birthday on Saturday. Robert and his staff were so friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection! Such a stunning and personal setting. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants an intimate setting with delicious food. My Dad really enjoyed discussing the history of the house with Robert. A very memorable evening that will stay with us. Thank you!

I cannot say enough wonderful things about the owner Richard and his lovely BNB. This historical home has been lovingly restored with amazing attention to detail. Thankful it is being shared with its guest. I felt comfortable and welcomed throughout my stay. Richard had excellent recommendations in the folder for day trips and places to try for evening meals. The sitting room was cozy to relax in with a warm coal fire. The bedroom with sitting area and en-suite were nicely decorated making me feel as I was in a 5+ star resort. This is the perfect place to stay as a base to explore Northern Ireland. I shall be back bringing my friends and family along.

Cant say enough good things about this place and our host Robert is the most friendly, helpful and charming man you could hope to meet. We will definitely be back.
