inchiquin house is a beautiful, well equipped holiday home that makes you feel like you are living in another era, it has all the catering supplies and mod cons you need but the experience is like something from a Jane eyre novel. The dining room and sitting room both have open fires and are large and regal. It is perfect for a family celebration. As it’s an old house, if you stay in winter you would need to light fires and keep on the heat. Kitchen area has a new extension and an Aga so it is warm and cosy when you come down for breakfast.
We greatly enjoyed our stay in Garrison House. The house was clean, comfortable, and with easy access to the city. The view from the ramparts around the Elizabeth Fort was spectacular. Liz Hughes (who looks after the property) was away for the w/e, but left good instructions about getting into the Fort at times when it wasn't open to the public, and even went so far as to give us her husband's telephone no, in case we had any problems with the heating. The shower worked well, as did the cooking equipment. Our only (slight) grouse was that we weren't able to open one of the bookcases in the...more
There were few options within the republic and the booking process was tortuous. At times I felt as if you we’re doing me a favour.
We, four friends, stayed in this cottage and we had such a relaxing break. The drive down and around the peninsula are some of the most beautiful drives I have been on. The cottage was very warm, large rooms, open fire, free standing bath, full kitchen. The view of the lighthouse from the living room is so pretty; it's literally at the end of the front garden! The light come through the cottages, gently. The host event brought us milk when we met with the keys which was very thoughtful. We had both very active days and doing nothing days - it's a great base for cycling, running, and the beach ...more
Thank you so much for having us at the Railway cottage. Our stay was superb. The cottage itself was beautiful, and the grounds were lovely. We had fantastic evenings in front of the fire and the underfloor heating was a welcome touch in the mornings and helped keep the cottage lovely and warm. The location was superb as well. 2 KM into Donegal town centre, and an hours drive to a host of Donegal's best attractions. We added on an extra night, as we were so delighted with our stay. Thank You
Really comfy and cozy perfect for a weekend away! Fire and kitchen were also great editions - delighted
Beautiful gate lodge close to some great walks & beeches. The house was spotless & really comfortable. Mario was a lovely host. One thing to note it is situated on a busy road
We had a super weekend @ the Mews so quiet & location is fab. Leah was very accommodating . House is very comfortable & parking is a bonus. Would highly recommend
This is the third time we've been to this location. Sitting by the fire with a book and a glass of wine with no mobile coverage, wifi or tv is a total head purge. Getting away from modern life is like a burden lifted. Stay here if: You want peace and quiet away from the busy world You want spectacular views and scenery Dont stay here if: You're expecting a five star hotel You need constant electronic stimulation or suffer from internet disconnection syndrome As I said, this is the 3rd time we've stayed at this location and I expect we will be back at least once this year, and ...more
Very comfortable and convenient location for city centre. Great to be able to stay in such a unique and historic property.
We absolutely loved our stay! The cottage is charming with time appropriate decorating. We built a fire each day and let our imaginations return to an earlier time in Irish life. The flashing of the great lighthouse beam and the roaring sea, the Butler family (last keepers of the lighthouse) and their 15 children. The life of the keeper and his family surely had many challenges. They were all met right where we sat at beautiful Galley Head.
Stayed in lighthouse with my husband and 2 children (8 & 9yrs). We loved the cliff and sea walks on the doorstep. The seals on the secret beach were such a bonus. We brought loads of food so enjoyed family meals and cards each evening. Without any TV , we throughly got to relax and just be. I would definitely recommend staying. Bring wet gear and good walking boots. Bring plenty of food. And then enjoy the sound of the sea and wind as you breathe in the fresh air.
We took a short break in the middle of the summer in order to escape from Dublin and found exactly what we were looking for! This property is set in a most remote, quiet area. We had very fine weather and I loved sitting in the quiet surrounds of the garden most of all. The children enjoyed the playing in the courtyard and the lane running up the back of the house, and we enjoyed exploring the area around an abandoned school house up past the fields. There were two easy day trips we thoroughly enjoyed: the first was Erica's Fairy Forest in Cootehill, along with the surrounding walks. T...more
What an amazing place to stay, from glorious sunsets, sea fresh air, cliff walks and schools of dolphins on your door step. In the evenings gather round the range and play board games or read or just watch the lights spin from a window. Mary the house keeper was so much help and easy to contact. We hope to return again very soon.
We really enjoyed our three nights in Batty Langley Lodge but unfortunately everything was closed due to Covid 19. We had been looking forward to visiting Castletown House but we had some great walks in the grounds and visited the Wonderful Barn and Conolly's folly nearby. The lodge is in a great location and there would be lots to see and do in the area under normal circumstances. The lodge itself is quirky and very cosy, perfect for two and the dog! It was interesting reading about the history of the lodge and Castletown House demesne.
The location of the Townhouse is excellent with amenities right on its doorstep. Great to experience an old house in the heart of the vibrant city.
My partner, our dog and I had a relaxing stay at Anne's Grove in early February. We arrived just as a storm was brewing and I was concerned that the old building might not be warm enough. However, the wood burning stove kept us toasty and cosy as the storm whirled outside. The whole property was clean and well-maintained. It was perfect for our dog too as she had some grass outside to explore as well as the novelty of the warmth from the stove. The castle is quite remote which adds to the lovely feeling of escape as we travelled down small country roads to get there. The kitchen was well equip...more
We had a great time at the Landmark Trust Termon House. The location is absolutely beautiful and the house functions perfectly with either four people (for two nights) or six (for two nights). I really enjoyed waking up looking at the sea.
We couldn’t ask for a quainter or more accommodating place near such a lovely location as Castletown house. Highly recommend.
House clean and comfortable. Loved the open fire and cosy living room. Used it as a base to visit local attractions.
