“A beautiful collection of cottages in a wonderful location”
Reviewed 1 May 2011

If you are looking for 5* accommodation then look no further.
We were greated on arrivial by Noirin who showed us around the property, providing us with a description of how different bits and pieces worked in particular the hottub!

The cottage was beautiful and not too close to the other three cottages in the complex. Plenty of privacey as we enjoyed our breakfast alfrecso on the rear patio overlooking the open fields and view of the lake.

Most definately the best equipted kitchen I have ever been in. Graters, bowls, electric whisk, food processor. . .you name it. . .its there! Best of all is a Neff dishwasher, lets face it who wants to do dishes on ;your hols.

Noirin and John have created a home from home atmosphere in Clover cottage as it didnt feel like a holiday let. Plently of soft furnishings, nick nacks and wall art around the cottage. Spotlessly clean and very well maintained.

For all the men who enjoy a garden shed look no further . .each cottage has its own little shed with logs, BBQ, a sun loungers.

The little play park on site is in good condition with two swing sets, slide and playhouse. In this day and age it was wonderful to let our daughter play in safety knowing that the complex is gated and secure 24hrs a day. A plus is that you can see the play park from the Cottages.

All in all we had a wonderful week at the Irish Cottages, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to anyone who just wants to get away from it all.

Spent a lovely relaxing weekend in Bluebell cottage. The cottage had everything we needed, from kitchen equipment to garden furniture. It even had a bbq however March was not the time to be barbecuing. We stayed with children aged between 7 and 14yrs and they loved exploring the land around the cottage. Bluebell cottage has 3 very good size bedrooms with very comfy beds and plenty of storage. John and his mother Noreen have thought of everything even providing hairdyers and shampoo etc. I would have no hesitations recommending this cottage and hope to return sometime.

I have stayed in Bluebell Cottage four times. Twice with friends and 4 small children between us, once by ourselves and once with a group of friends.

Having stayed in many cottages in Fermanagh I can assure you that The Irish Cottages is the best of the best.

As other reviewers can confirm, every attention to detail is there from fabulous furnishings, lake views, playground, hot tub, fire with fuel and a welcome basket. John is fantastic (and patient!) at discussing your needs before you arrive and providing information while Noreen always greets us with a lovely smile and local knowledge.

The cottages are comparitively expensive during peak times if you are a family (ie not sharing the cost between several adults) but firstly the accommodation is worth the price and secondly there are off-peak discounts as well as loyalty discounts.

There are any amount of trips to do from the Ulster American Folk Museum, Belleek Pottery, Lusty Beg Island, and numerous National Trust properties and country parks.

My recommendation is go once and you will always go back! Enjoy!

We stayed in Clover Cottage at New Year and could not have had a nicer welcome or a better house. The view was stunning, looking out at the mist coming off the frozen lough and our three year old loved seeing the sheep coming to say hello as we had breakfast every morning. The house is brilliantly equipped and beautifully finished and the grounds have everything you could want. PJ (the three year old) loved the play park and would happily haved moved into the play house, while we felt the same about the hot tub. The location is equally impressive with so much to do in the area. This house would be hard to beat.
