Cristin was brilliant and very welcoming. After greeting us at the gate she took us on a tour or the house before letting us know she had left out Milk, Apple Juice, Brown Bread, cereals, Home made Jam (Delicious!) & some of her own free range eggs; as well as teas/coffees and condiments. This paired with the roaring fire as we arrived meant we felt right at home within 10minutes, so much so we decided we could have quite happily stayed there for weeks rather than the two days we actually stayed. The selection of towels and dressing gowns was also a lovely touch.
There are also a number of brilliant walks up the nearby hills all within a 10-15min drive, we managed to get up to the top of Keepers Hill and the view (even if it was a little foggy) was Amazing! We, quite happily recommend The Gatelodge to friends, and any Airbnb users. Thank you Cristin.
Cosy, warm and peaceful nights of sleep. Beautiful days with walks in absolutely stunning parkland, on leafy paths under ancient mossy trees beside a crisp clear flowing river. A treasure in Tipperary. Does my heart and soul good to know places like this are shared by lovely owners. Thank you.
Absolutely amazing little retreat! We loved our stay. Cristin was a great host leaving us fresh bread, milk, butter, eggs and homemade jam. She also had the fire lit when we arrived so we settled very quickly! Would highly recommend and will definitely return.
A beautiful home full of character and set in beautiful grounds.
We had a warm welcome with the fire roaring and lots of lovely provisions - was just what we needed after a stressful journey.
A great location for exploring the surrounding areas too, would highly recommend The Gate Lodge.
We absolutely loved our stay at the Gatelodge. The house was very clean and tidy, with attention to the details. Cristin was very responsive--she made sure to check-in with us a few days before the trip, responded immediately to requests/questions during our stay and accommodated our early arrival. Her homemade scones were delicious too! The gardens were beautiful even in the winter and I would love to see them in the summer. What a little gem in the heart of Ireland! I'm just thankful that places like this exist for rentals.
Love, love this place! Beautifully appointed interior. Plenty of space for the two of us. We stayed there during the winter so we had the opportunity to see the grounds covered in snow. Unfortunately, we didn't have the chance to meet Cristin but she had someone meet us there and show us around. Thank you for the stay and being flexible with our schedule!
Cristin was an amazing host! I had a late arrival and she met me at the Gatelodge with a fire already started and fresh bread and other tasty bits. The Gatelodge itself was perfect and charming and the grounds were lovely. I would definitely stay here again.
I'm an avid gardner and pet owner. I love the outdoors where in my experience nothing beats a winter's day walk followed by a good book or movie by the open fire.
