We stayed (6 adults,2children) jn Henry's cottage in Lough Cutra for one week. It was perfect, comfortable, uncomplicated and beautiful. There is lots to do in the area and we were out and about everyday. Breakfasting before we set off. When we arrived there was milk, eggs, tea, coffee and bread waiting for us. Chris, who was our contact while staying there was great. Friendly, full of tips of what to do where to eat and what to see. He even rang ahead to a restaurant to book a table for us so that we could get something to eat on the evening of our arrival.
In the evening on returning we would light the fire and relax and talk about the day. The cottage is situated on a beautiful site and walking around the grounds is amazing.
I would highly recommend Lough Cutra and would definitely return when ever I am back in Ireland and visiting this part of the country again. It was an unforgettable experience.
Henry's Cottage was utterly delightful, and our hosts Chris and Suzy were warm and welcoming, always available and checking in on us, even providing fruit and fresh eggs from the yard hens. The grounds are breathtaking, and we enjoyed long walks and fishing, spending more time than anticipated on-site as it struck a wonderful balance of beauty, grandeur and warmth, and somehow managed to be an unpretentious and inviting castle estate. Great location for exploring the area. We would come back in a heartbeat. Thanks to Chris and to Suzy for making our stay so pleasant.
Cormorant Cottage was a great experience to fish, shoot and play golf. Chris, the Lough Cutra Estate Manager, was great and really set us up with recommendations for dinner and day trips. I can't thank him enough for the hospitality and his professionalism. The lake, grounds, castle and the cottages are one of the most beautiful settings I have ever seen and to think that we were lucky enough to stay there for 4 days is incredible. It is surely a trip I won't forget.
We had a pleasant time in Loughcutra cottage. It is well equipped.
It's an historic and peaceful suroundings, absolutely amazing and characterful as well as well situated for sightseeing Burren and Connemara.
Lough Cutra Castle was 2 hours from Dublin and GORT is easily accessible.
We recommand this cottage highly
Jean and Emmanuelle,
What an amazing place, Stayed here on a trip around the west coast with my wife and in-laws who are visiting from overseas and I have to say we were all blown away.
Its tranquil, beautiful, stately, relaxed, comfy, friendly and many many other things. Staying here suited everyone perfectly, In the mornings before i was functioning properly, the visitors were able to wander the grounds, walk by the lake and take in the beauty of the irish countryside and the grandeur of the castle, while in the evenings I was able to install myself into a comfy wingback chair by the fire and read a book from the shelves with a glass or two of wine after a long days driving around the burren.
Everyone we met was friendly and welcoming and while the place is impressive and grand its also friendly and very down to earth.
The house is very comfy and clean, I slept like a log every night and there wasn't a sniffle from the member of our group with a pretty bad dust allergy. The kitchen was equipped with all we needed and there was tea, coffee, butter, milk, juice, bread and rashers for us when we got there which was a very nice touch.
We used the house for a base to visit the burren and it was ideal, within 10 minutes drive of the house you're in the typical burren landscape and its close to all the main tourist hotspots.
So to conclude if you are reading this and thinking of staying I would wholeheartedly recommend the house, we loved it from the minute we drove through the impressive gateway and made our way down the driveway to be met by a flock? of more than one hundred ducks. My guests had such a good time here they will go home with great memories and I will definitely be visiting again.
This was a really beautiful cottage where we stayed four nights. The estate is amazing, with animals, a garden, and fresh eggs left on our door! Everyone was friendly and accommodating and we were quite sad to leave. Very kid-friendly, too. A great experience!
We had a wonderful time at Cormorant Lodge. It is a beautiful place and so very comfortable. We loved the fireplace, the expansive grounds and the views out the kitchen window of the castle. Chris was very hospitable. It was a great experience.
The three lovely American ladies
My family's recent stay at Cormorant Cottage was absolutely wonderful. The cottage and grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and extremely well-maintained. The cottage has three nicely-decorated bedrooms (with very comfortable beds), a well-stocked kitchen, a dining room, and a living room with a fireplace, which was so cozy.
Chris, the estate manager, was super helpful and thoughtful. There were beautiful fresh-cut flowers waiting for us when we arrived, as well as fresh eggs (from hens on the estate!), rashers (a.k.a., bacon, for us Yanks), Irish soda bread, jam, juice, etc., in the fridge. Chris also helped us immensely to navigate the area, and gave us great suggestions on what to see and do during our time in Gort and County Galway. He even gave us a tour of Lough Cutra Castle, complete with historical references and fun facts. We had heard of Irish hospitality before we got to the Emerald Isle, but we were floored by how genuinely nice, accommodating and helpful Chris was during our stay.
The estate is located in a prime spot for all the tourist sites you would want to see in area: the Aran Islands, Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, the Connemara,,... It would even be fairly easy to get to Limerick, as well as Cork and the Ring of Kerry. Gort itself is also a very cute, little Irish town with a few pubs and nice restaurants.
All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and can't recommend Cormorant Cottage highly enough. It's a real gem. For our family's vacation, it was ideal, and we could not have hoped for anything better. Our only regret is not being able to stay longer. But we're already planning our next trip back!
