“A Perfect Location”
Reviewed 24 April 2014 for a stay in April 2014

We were a family group of seven adults and five children and we are attracted to Eaglewood Lodge initially because it satisfied our need to have a property of sufficient size to accommodate our group and at the same time act as a base for activities in the area and to entertain others who were in the area at the same time .
Although the number of people adults and children varied over the time are were there there was no sense that we felt overcrowded as the Lodge was very spacious and the children (whose ages varied between 7 and five) were able to use the upstairs lounge for their dvd's and computer games . The outside area was a major attraction and they played away in the grounds in complete safety. The lovely large bath in the downstairs master bedroom was well used by bathing children and the shower facilities and bedroom accommodation was more than adequate . As it was early spring the house was if anything too warm at times as the heat retention of the house was excellent. However the large wood burning stove downstairs was a welcoming addition at night and a focus for entertaining - as was the jukebox!
The actual location of Eaglewood Lodge couldn't have been much better (although Irish distances seem to be longer than anticipated!) as the property is situated close enough to Westport to be easily accessible and also well situated for sightseeing in Connemara with Clifton close at hand and Galway some distance further.
The design of the house was a major attraction ,unusual for the Irish countryside but fitted in totally with the area and the facilities were such that they would be difficult to equal anywhere. Certainly it would be ideal as a base for exploring Connemara or as a location for a family get together as there was an excellent kitchen and a Barbecue area at the side of the house for entertainment. During our stay we had a number of guests visit and there was more than enough room for them to be entertained in the Lodge .
There are few ,if any, faults to be found with Eaglewood Lodge and any difficulties were more than adequately dealt with by by the owner . I certainly have no difficulty in recommending the Lodge to future potential guests

Reviewed 26 March 2014 for a stay in March 2014

From the moment we found this gem, we couldn't have been happier with the location, the lodge, the service from Mike and the overall ambiance. It was so spacious, so clean and so comfortable and it was the perfect haven for a girls weekend away! There are so many opportunities for walks around the area and you would never be idle for long here! I couldn't recommend this lodge highly enough and I am truly excited about my next trip back!

“Can't wait to go back...”
Reviewed 24 February 2014 for a stay in February 2014

A fantastic property that completely made our weekend. A large group of us came to this lodge for the weekend, cars packed with food and drink. We settled in for a cosy weekend and the house was the perfect setting for it all. Spacious, clean, warm and very homely with every household amenity that one would require. There was even information booklets in the house for things to do in Westport itself, including taxi/minibus service numbers that we booked to bring us into the town on the Saturday night at a very cheap rate per person.
An extraordinary weekend that we cannot wait to go back to soon. Would recommend this 100%.

“Amazing stay!”
Reviewed 11 January 2014 for a stay in May 2013

Absolutely amazing house. Stayed here with my family for a long weekend. The house is great-spacious, open with great high ceilings and well sized bedrooms. We were a party of 7 adults and 2 kids and there was lots of space for all of us. The living area is a great entertaining space with stove and juke box. The decor is really cool and fits perfectly with the overall feel of the house. It was clean, warm and with every amenity you could wish for. Will be going back.

“What a fabulous place!”
Reviewed 15 August 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Just like to state what a fantastic building this is, the work that must have gone into to this place to achieve the finished product is immense!! its splendid. My family (6) stayed here last month 14/7 for 5 nights we had a fab time the children were in awe at the size of the place and never stopped touring albeit inside or outside! Michael John the owner was a great host and nothing too much trouble and his attention to detail about your stay was just as impressive as the house from the photos, the nearest pub is called "the rock" locally but known as The Carrig Lounge and have trad irish music every Sun afternoon and is a must!! The village of Leenane is only 6-8 miles away and worth a visit too, beautiful scenery , the town of Westport is 8-9 miles way and equally as beautiful to visit and was recently voted 2013 the best place to live Ireland!! what more can I add to a beautiful place/ holiday and we even encountered the recent heat wave in Ireland, which just brought out the beauty of this wonderful area, willing be booking to go back very soon.

“One of the nicest houses I have ever stayed in”
Reviewed 23 July 2013 for a stay in July 2013

A large group of friends and family stayed here in July for one week. All I can say is this house is amazing. The house is beautifully decorated, clean and comfortable, with every appropriate amenity. The setting is magnificent. We would definitely recommend this house for a group of friends or a family get-together. Very impressed!
