We had a brilliant time in the Gate Lodge. The pictures didn't do the house or gardens justice - beautiful, quiet and we definitely felt at home. A great base to see so much in the area and a lovely place to relax in the evenings. Fermoy is really close by for any shops or amenities you need and Castlelyons was a really friendly village. Nuala and Hugh made us feel very welcome. We would happily go again and all felt the tinge of sadness you get when a brilliant holiday ends.

The Gate Lodge is a stunning place to stay. It is spacous and spotlessly clean. For us it was central for Fota wildlife park, Trabolgan and Cork city. As a host, Nuala was wonderful and allowed the children to play in the grounds of the estate. We will definitely return for another visit.

The Gate Lodge, Castlelyons, County Cork was located perfectly for our needs. Centrally located for trips to any of the coastal towns and sights. The Gate Lodge was very clean and amenities were acceptable. The grounds of the property were lovely, well maintained and enjoyable to walk through. We enjoyed the slightly secluded location, as we didn't want to stay "in town". Thank you, Nuala for your hospitality.

Booking a place to stay for six (four children, three teens and a nine year old) and my husband and I, in a country we have never been to, going off maps and photos, we took a chance on what looked to be a beautiful place. In all actuality it was the PERFECT place for my family to spend eight days. Approx 13 acres of beautiful land to walk and explore! Our cottage was large, clean and with two bathrooms, mornings were much easier to manage. We arrived at 3am and our GPS wasn't working. Our wonderful host stayed up and actually drove to meet us when we exited the freeway and lead us back to the home. She also, knowing we were arriving late, had cereal, milk, bread and coffee for us to enjoy breakfast the next morning. The wi-fi, through no fault of our hosts, was being upgraded in that area that week, it was a bit inconvenient for a couple days, but our hosts gave us their personal wi-fi code and we were able to sit on their beautiful patio and use it if we needed to. I think it made for a better time for my family as we were unplugged more than normal and the kids enjoyed playing games together, both inside and running around outside . together. You can walk to the local "Abbey" if you wanted a drink. We planned to go, but never made it. There are also awesome sights to walk to, including an old castle. It was like stepping back in time and, honestly, I don't think if we had stayed anywhere else we could have had a better experience. We loved the hosts, their dog Kaiser, the grounds and the area. Perfect Ireland experience!!

Lovely home and gardens. Was the perfect quiet place to center our travels out of. I hope we get a chance to return some day.

Pictures of the Gate Lodge struck us as being the type of place we envisioned for our stay in Ireland. Actually being at the Lodge exceeded expectations. We loved it. Cozy, comfortable, and nicely located just outside of town. Nuala was a wonderful host. We would certainly visit again.

Nuala was there to greet us as we were getting out of the car. The Gate Lodge is just that, a renovated building next to the gate, large rooms, quiet and comfortable. We selected this location based on our travel plans in the area over the course of three days, and it worked out great. We enjoyed walking the grounds, and listening to the birds. The crows are plentiful and can be loud (there are many other birds in the area as well). Simply closing the high quality windows blocks out any noise outside.

In setting up our Gate Lodge we have used our own travel experiences to incorporate what we consider necessary to make people feel comfortable when they are away from home.
