Riverhaven Log Cabins
Reviewed 22 July 2014

Myself, my wife and our 4 kids (11,6,5,2) stayed here in July 2014(last week at time of review). John, Norah and Tina were lovely people and made our stay all the more enjoyable. The Cabin was great. Everything was provided. Our kids loved the Play areas, The football nets and the forest walk to the loch/lough and views and boats- Very safe lovely grounds just keep an eye on the kids wandering around stream in around grounds and lough etc.Couldn't recommend enough. We had activity after activity and only 10 mins drive from lough key to ZIP it (4 hours of great fun- prebook online before you travel as internet not great in location but if you push it they will do at zipit on day in zipit office)and Boda borg (2 hour crystal maze- Min 3 people to play- need to be seven at least which is true as task are a bit hard for some). Spend 20 in activity centre for free parking (excluding Zipit cost). We found menu in donnallens restaurant much more child friendly but regretted not being able to try moorings but we only saw menu outside. TV had enough channels(RTEs up to UTV e4 sky news etc. Mind your head on the top step to attic room. Mulveys were very attentive as well and we diod teh family Bowling, Pay area and Sumo with Drinks and pop corn for 55 for the 6 of us. Had great fun ont hat one rainy day. Will be staying again and hope to do boats and fishing next time.

Room Tip: get no 1 as its more private

Had a most enjoyable week in the fine and spacious log cabins and use of the boat and outboard engine to explore the lake and many islands and boyle river and locks and fine fishing too...the owner john is a fine and friendly gentleman who is most helpful in every way from recommending places to eat and places to see etc. Cannot fault well except no wifi but maybe thats a good thing ...

We stayed in these cabins from the 5- 12 of July myself hubby & 2 kids 5&2, so clean + tidy excellent location plenty to do, family r so nice. We hired electric bikes in Lough key Forrest park so funny its a must do, park itself is lovely great picnic spot. Would definitely not recommend t/boy pet farm total waste of money it cost us 21euro & it really was not worth it poor lay out all d kids toys we're broken they weren't interested in us being there it was more or less give us your money there's the farm. We had more fun feeding misty d horse squeak the cat & buster the dog at d farm at the cabins. Will definitely go back. Thanks again Norah,John,Tina + Martin & Declan says thank you again Tina for the paintings x

We are just back from a family holiday at Riverhaven. We stayed in the 4 bedroom log cabin with 6 adults, 2 adults and 1 baby.
The cabin was fabulous my 2 boys were especially excited to be staying in a log cabin. The cabin was spotlessly clean when we arrived and the facilities in the cabin were perfect with everything provided for. The kids had loads to do with plenty of open space to play safely and the two swing/slide sets right outside our door, my 9 year old was so delighted to see they even had football goals.
The lake is less than 5 minutes walk away and it was lovely to take a stroll down in the evening to watch the boats go by or to take a stroll through the forest and down the country lane by the river.
We spent much of our time in Lough Key forest adventure park which is a short drive away.
The owners John and Tina Burke were so lovely and welcoming and made everything from the booking right through to departure a smooth and easy process.
I cannot recommend this place enough and I can say for sure we will be regular visitors to the fabulous Riverhaven.

We stayed here as a group of two families, 9 people over St Patricks Weekend. The owner John was most welcoming and very helpful. The cabins are really beautiful and in a peaceful location just a short walk from the edge of Lough Key. Nice touch of welcome pack and firelogs supplied in arrival. Lots of great things to do locally. Would really recommend.

I would recommend these cabins in a heartbeat. Not only are they beautiful, spacious and cosy but the Burke family are fantastic people to deal with. They know the area well and will recommend what to do in a heartbeat.
