A jetty on the lake, a paddock with donkeys, BBQs, babysitting and peace at these pretty lodges around a courtyard; a very comfy stables too

Read guest comments

Lawns run down to the lake, a path leads up to the woods; beyond is a garden for veg and a paddock with two donkeys. Pat and Annette so love this place that you cannot conceivably leave unconverted: the view raises your spirit, the peace restores your soul. The two pretty 18th-century stone lodges stand creeper-clung round a courtyard, the stables stand apart. Renovated with a light, sensitive hand, they feel unassuming and genuine, the interiors done in a straightforward modern country style for comfort and practicality: pine kitchens with all the bits, pretty iron beds with excellent bedding, proper armchairs before open fires, French doors to private terraces stretching out to the limpid lake and moorland. All you need, and more: barbecues, babysitting (book ahead), free broadband, satellite TV. The beautiful lakeside position, its paths, boats and rich fishing, are yours for the duration... Pat has built a jetty, provides safety equipment and is ever willing to guide and advise. Amazingly close to Shannon, Limerick, Ennis – and famous Dromoland Castle is just down the road.

Guest feedback
"We loved Mount Cashel, it is very special. There is so much to do with the lake at the end of the garden (boats, kayaks, raft for swimming all provided) and beautiful places to drive to. The lodge was really comfortable and everything was provided to make our stay hassle-free. Brilliant!"
