A romantic, medieval castle in miniature. With its wood burning stove, vaulted ceiling bedroom and intimate small garden which offers a wonderful opportunity to dine 'al fresco' on balmy summer evenings. A perfect getaway for two. - dog friendly
An intensely romantic property, Annes Grove is built in Gothic style. It is situated at the junction of three quiet country roads and surrounded by mature beech trees, which cradle the property and stonewalls. Inside timber ceilings, wood floors, stone arches, and snug rooms make this property an idyllic setting for those looking for a romantic break.
This house has one double bedroom so is only suitable for a couple.

Other Things to Note
Our buildings were made to the standards of earlier times – and sometimes without the intention that they should be lived in. Consequently you may encounter features that reflect their particular character but that deserve due care and attention, particularly by the young, elderly, less mobile or visually impaired. Examples of these are steps worn with age, uneven surfaces, low ceilings and beams, unexpected drops or changes in level, and by modern standards low or absent lighting. In all cases we have sought to make a sensible compromise between due regard for safety and the careful retention of the fabric of each building, which makes it an interesting place to stay. We ask you to appreciate and use the building with this understanding, and recommend you read the information in the Guest Book in the property
We ask that you leave the property in a clean and tidy condition upon departure. All equipment, utensils etc must be left clean and the property must be left clean and tidy at the end of the hire period.
All breakages and damage must be reported to the House Manager immediately so that they can be rectified. All breakages and damage are the legal responsibility of the Hirer and the cost of repair or replacement must be paid.
Die Anne Grove Gate Lodge ist - wie beschrieben - ein richtiges Mini-Schlösschen. Im Erdgeschoss ist eine kleine, gut ausgestattete Küche, ein gemütliches Mini-Wohnzimmer mit einem Kaminofen (ausreichend Briketts, Anzünder und Streichhölzer waren vorhanden) sowie ein modernes Badezimmer mit Dusche. Über eine kleine (und enge) Steinwendeltreppe gelangt man ins Schlafzimmer welches mit einem Doppelbett sowie zwei kleinen Schränken ausgestattet ist. Die Wendeltreppe geht auch noch weiter bis zum Dach, das man betreten darf. Das ganze Schlösschen ist sehr liebevoll und authentisch restauriert.
Michael - der Housekeeper - wohnt um die Ecke und hat bei unserer Ankunft schon geheizt und den Kaminofen angezündet. Er war sehr hilfsbereit und wir hätten ihn jederzeit anrufen können.
Die Lage ist sehr ruhig - mitten im Grünen und ca. 50 Autominuten von Cork City entfernt.
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen :-)

Irish Landmark is a non-profit organisation that finds interesting and unusual properties that are in need of conservation, and we give them new life. Since 1992, we’ve been turning historic buildings into truly special self-catering holiday accommodation. Our properties range from lighthouses and schoolhouses, to castles and gate lodges.
As an educational charity, our primary aim is to conserve and sustain iconic buildings. That’s why Irish Landmark properties are living buildings, not museum settings. Irish Landmark always respects the history and architectural integrity of the structures we conserve, but we also ensure they have all the contemporary comforts you want in a holiday home.
