“Perfect thatched roof cottage.”
Reviewed 12 October 2017 for a stay in October 2017

Wonderful old cottage. Very clean and well stocked. Eamonn was terrific and so helpful to answer questions and offer suggestions for activities to pursue in the area. Would highly recommend and would definitely like to return for a longer stay.

“Prettiest cottage in the prettiest village in Ireland”
Reviewed 4 September 2017 for a stay in August 2017
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage is more beautiful in person than the pictures can capture. Our first night there we happened to meet a woman whose grandmother had previously lived in the cottage and could tell us some of the history, which only added to the charm of the place. The location is convenient to good restaurants, a grocery, and many quaint shops. Adare is centrally located in Ireland, we were able to drive to the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Bunratty one day, Blarney Castle the next. Eamon was very helpful, offering maps, GPS, and a phone for our use while there. We had plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable.

“Thatched cottage in the main Street of historic village of Adare.”
Reviewed 15 August 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great stay at the thatched cottage in Adare.
Our hosts were very friendly and assisted with recommending stops on our daily sight seeing itineraries.
Adare itself is a very pretty village and well worth exploring, plus has plenty of shopping, pubs and eateries.
The thatched cottage is a unique historic cottage that was one of the highlights of our holiday. It is very roomy and has good facilities.

“Just like a visit to Great-Grandma's house”
Reviewed 9 June 2016 for a stay in May 2016
3
people found this review helpful

We visited the Gate Lodge in Adare at the end of May and found it to be a wonderful accommodation. The entry flowers were beautiful and well maintained. The bedrooms are stacked front to back so you can either enter the back room through the court yard from the kitchen or go through the front bedroom to access the back. The interior was reminiscent of a visit to great-grandma's with the historic pictures on the walls, the cross-stitched table cloth, wood paneling and bread box on the counter in the kitchen. Eammon, the owner, was a wonderful resource for touring the local area and was easy to get hold of when we had questions. The historic Adare Manor is right next door but is under renovation until 2017 so it is not available for tours. There are castles, abbeys and plenty of nice places to eat within easy walking distance and there is parking next to the cottage so if you are driving, you don't have to hike to your car.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this most charming cottage. The location in the pretty village of Adare is prime. The cottage is very well maintained and fully equipped for every need. Eammon is a wonderful host. He provided excellent advice on our scenic travels around County Kerry and beyond.

“What a great place to stay in the beautiful Village of Adare”
Reviewed 20 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

person found this review helpful

Eamonn made us feel very welcome for our stay at his family's ancestral thatched cottage which is situated right in the heart of the beautiful historic village of Adare County Limerick.
The cottage had everything from a great location including parking and had very facility included to make us feel completely at home.
Eamonn went out of way to help us with car problems and further accommodation requirements we had during our stay. All this was greatly appreciated and way over and above what you would normally expect..
Adare Village is a great location for a break and has everything from historic buildings, country walks, great pubs with music nights and restaurants.

A big thank you again to Eamonn and family.

From Gerry and Vicki
