About This Listing
Situated on the grounds of The Manor, a nineteenth century residence at Castlelyons, Fermoy, Co. Cork, Ireland, The Gate Lodge is a sedate 3 star self catering accommodation which offers a secluded and tranquil place in which to rest and relax.
Much has changed since the coachman, Patrick Allen, lived here with his family in three small rooms in 1901. Now the floor area of the living quarters has been extended to 115 Mts sq. The ground floor of this self catering accommodation consists of a fully fitted kitchen complete with washing machine, a living room with a large sofa bed, armchairs, dining table and chairs, TV, and a solid fuel wood burning stove; and a ground floor bathroom complete with bath and power shower. The upper floor has two bedrooms, one with a double bed, and the other with two double beds and an en-suite.
The accommodation is fully central heated. It has all the advantages of self catering accommodation: safe for children, secure car parking, outside space with garden furniture, barbeque facilities, and covered external drying space.
Visitors are welcome to wander and explore the gardens which have been planted over the last hundred years and have a mixture of native and non native plants, shrubs, and trees.
Privacy is what we consider most important for our guests, but if they wish interaction we are available.

Nuala was so welcoming! The gatehouse was very clean, warm and cozy. We loved our time there. I told her she set the bar very high as we had two other places to visit. My children loved playing on the grounds. I would highly recommend staying here. She left some goodies in the fridge for us to enjoy as well. We were very comfortable with every need met.
We, four couples in the middle twenties, stayed in the Gate Lodge for two nights. Nuala and Hugh were the most lovely hosts and made us enjoy our stay even more! Perfect for six people, but also suitable for two more sleeping in the sitting room, the Gate Lodge is a beautiful house. We will definitely come back and strongly recommend the Lodge to everybody!
Nuala was a great host, who looked after my grandparents and aunt. They had an amazing time in this beautiful house.
