“Beautiful lodge, perfect peaceful weekend!”
Reviewed 22 October 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed for a long weekend with our son and had a brilliant stay. Ita was more than helpful with regards to booking and confirming everything with us before we arrived - also extremely helpful when we arrived and through out our stay. The lodge itself was beautiful decorated to a really high standard, bedrooms were lovely and clean with freshly made bed that were very comfy. The whole lodge was extremely clean and the kitchen was well equipt with everything you would need to prepare any meals. The fire in the lounge was lovely and enough to heat the lodge. The surrounding area was beautiful and we had great fun on the zip wire and exploring the close forest. Already planning our next stay. Thank you so much Ita. Couldn't recommend anywhere better!

“Perfect”
Reviewed 28 September 2014 for a stay in September 2014

My boyfriend and I stayed for weekend as an escape from the city retreat. We booked last minute and had great help booking over the phone with Ita. When we arrived we were wowed with how amazing the house and the location is. The photos don't do it justice, it truly is a beautiful place to have a holiday. At the foot of the Ballyhoura Mtns which are spectacular and so many outdoor activities around the immediate area. We did a river walk from the village to the next village which passes a beautiful waterhole. And also did the horseriding in Kilfinane & some walks around the trails in the mountains. But to be honest we didn't really want to leave the house as we enjoyed it so much. Everything you need & more and decorated perfectly. Very clean, comfortable and peaceful. Ita was amazing with helping us with including directions to nice walks & pubs. The pub down the road in the village is great too. Cannot recommend enough & found it to be very good value for money.

“Lovely peaceful holiday”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

Our stay in the lodges were wonderful. Such a lovely location and views and the fire place was lit every evening. Was a very relaxing stay and would definitely come back again. Ita at reception was very helpful and accommodating. If you need anything, she was always very happy to help. The lodges were very clean and had everything you needed. Would definitely recommend this as a great place to stay.

“Fantastic self catering in very remote but beautiful area.”
Reviewed 9 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

We spent a week mountain biking at the trails which are a ten minute drive from the lodges. The trails are fantastic and the views spectacular. The lodges have every thing you need and more. Big, clean & comfortable. Ita at reception could not have been more helpful. The area is very remote and hard to find your way around so I would advice anyone going to have a plan and directions before you get there (signal for phones and internet is intermittent). We'd recommend Lazy Dog Shooting (10 min drive), National Kart Centre (1hr drive) & Michelstown Cave (30 min drive). Although the staff in the heritage centre (30 min drive) were very nice I felt it was missing some substance.

“Perfect base for our wedding guests”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in July 2014

We recently held our wedding in the local area and the lodges were the perfect choice of accommodation for our guests. We are local but many of our guests travelled from around Ireland, the UK and further afield. The lodged were a revelation to them and we were so proud to show them the beautiful local countryside and the facilities available. Ita was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish and kept in touch with us for months ahead of time to let us know what was available and who had booked in. She was especially helpful when one member of the group required special facilities due to reduced mobility.
We would recommend the lodges to anybody looking for a friends' weekend away, a family break or as a touring base for international visitors wanting to visit the Munster region. Top notch.

“Second visit this year with a young family ... that says it all really!”
Reviewed 6 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014
1
person found this review helpful

We had a wonderful stay here back in April (which I reviewed at the time).

As it went so well, we returned 4 months later after much begging from my sons.
(My five year old even taught my two year old how to say 'ballyorgan' which swung the vote)

Once again, like Goldilock's porridge, everything was just right - the lodge was spotless, modern, well equipped, calm and peaceful.

The kids playground with the zipline was still as fun as ever, as were the peaceful walks through the forest - once you cross the tiny bridge over the bubbling stream, you could literally be in another world

However, all that aside, when it comes to tourism, it is often true that 'it's the people you meet who make the repeat customers'

In our case (and it looks like another reviewer made the same point) it was once again the amazing efficient and welcoming Ita who made our trip

Nothing was too much trouble;- whether it was info on the locality, things to do and see - all passed on with a friendly chat

We can't recommend this place enough and are already planning our next trip....
