My husband and I stayed only for one night, but we really enjoyed it. We were very warmly welcomed, when arrived. We were shown to our room which was very spacious, very clean, bed very comfortable and we had fantastic view of the lake. Breakfast was delicious and beautifuly presented. Our hosts made us feel right at home.

It was a pleasure to have you both stay with us, it is a pity that the weather was not a little more inviting to do some fishing, perhaps next time ! Thank you so much for deciding to stay with us and keeping Rocky company !!

Great house, great setting, clean swim-able lake, big stylish bedroom, fine breakfast in conservatory, but most of all the welcome & friendliness of Susan & Gordon made it one of the best, even running us in& out of Dunmanway for a drink

We stayed at the Lake house and were completely spoiled by the hostess, Susan. You can order a full Irish breakfast or go with a continental fare. Susan and her husband Gordon are available to answer your questions as to the closest route to somewhere or the best place to go singing at a local pub!! The country setting is...
