Our family of 3 adults spent 1 week at this wooden lodge, within a stone's throw, (ok, 3 min max walk ) to the lake. Perched on high ground, it allows a panoramic view of the lake. The vista is absolutely beautiful, and calming for the spirit. We braved some chilly nights of April weather awed by the radiant stars hung out in the sky. We lay in bed (master bedroom) looking out through full glass windows at the shimmering lake awash in the glow of full moon. We are so thankful for the privilege of just spending 7 nights in this gorgeous place.
The master bedroom is so spacious, allowing us to open out in full on the carpeted floor, our 3 suitcases. The bed was large and clean. The other 2 bedrooms has 2 single beds each, very clean and comfortable.
Plenty of towels. Great hot shower daily. Oh, if you would like, you could still view the lake from the large bathroom window too, it is a rare treat!
The house keeper Urike has done a good job to keep this place neat and clean. It is after all quite rural and it is the season of Mayflies - just 3 weeks. We wanted to do some ironing one evening and didn't realise there was an iron in the house. Called Angus (Urike's husband) and within mins, he hand-delivered an ironing board and iron, from his home, just 4 houses away. It was really gracious of Angus to attend to our request so quickly.
We love the location. May be secluded because it is a 15-30 mins drive out to the shops, pubs but we chose it for its unique position overlooking lovely Lough Derg. Anyway, it was a bonus to have wifi connection which was excellent.
Kitchen is very well stocked. Washing machine, dryer in a separate shed right outside the kitchen. And another spare toilet next to it too.
3 comfortable bedrooms, big sofas with plenty of cushions...and big sturdy strong outdoor dining table and chairs. Mobile BBQ set is also available (an extra, not found in many places). We left this place with wonderful memories, rested and yet, so unwilling to part.
Thanks again, Graham for sharing your 'home' with strangers like us. May you be amply rewarded when taking a risk that others would share your ideals, and treat your place with regard & respect.
