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.
We had an absolutely amazing time at Cristins house. The location is beautiful, and this is matched by the house. Lovingly restored, it is gorgeously decorated and a joy to stay in, we really did not want to leave at all. It is the perfect romantic escape. The experience was so relaxing, Cristin supplied us with perfect directions up to where the house is tucked away in the mountain, and met us at a time convenient for ourselves. Cristin is a really welcoming host, gave us a brief tour and told us to help ourselves to herbs etc in the garden as well as recommending a brilliant butcher. The fire was already done for us and Cristin even dropped the most light & fluffy scones in the next morning! The house was so wonderful, we really had an unforgettable stay and we will certainly be back in the future. I cannot recommend this place highly enough and a review just doesn't do the place justice you really have to go experience it for yourself.
Wonderful homey place to stay. Well appointed. Very comfortable. History of pottery in the family. Wish we could have explored more.
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.
