Beautiful property, wonderfully restored and with a lovely cosy homely feel. Comfortable beds, and an incredible kitchen. Anne was a star, too!
We had an amazing two night stay. Stunning views. Cottage was lovely and clean, great kitchen, all the utensils you would need are provided. Nice big bathroom! Comfy beds! Can't fault it and Gerard the manager so helpful and really nice guy too! Many thanks.
My husband and I had three lovely nights in the Railway Crossing Cottage in September. It's so cosy, comfortable, quiet and restored beautifully too, with colourful flowers in the window boxes adding a perfect touch for photographs! The setting is great, we had several long walks on the country roads around it, and it is a perfect base for further exploring of beautiful Donegal. The caretakers Gerard & Mary, and Irene in the Irish Landmark Trust office, were all so helpful to deal with too.
Galley Head is the perfect place to get away from it all and unwind. It was a very special experience, one which will we will remember fondly and will most certainly do again. In our busy lives we tend to forget how fantastic real peace and quiet can be, Galley Head is the perfect place to make one realize how good it can be to just relax with a nice glass or three of wine & chat for hours without distraction. Gerald & Meria were great and we could have stayed and chatted with them for hours, Gerald has some great stories to tell and his passion for all things maritime shines out. We can't...more
Schooner was a beautiful, remote, cosy location that my travelling companions and I found the highlight of our trip to Ireland. There were majestic sunsets on an awe inspiring peninsula, a comfortable fire sheltered from a howling storm at night, and incredible walks with the sea battering the coast along both sides of tjhis rocky finger jutting into the Atlantic.
The Annaghmore schoolhouse is beautifully restored and lovingly maintained. It's located in the heart of the countryside and is very peaceful - the only sounds are from the river and the wind in the trees. A very special place.
Wonderful warm welcome from Maro. The house was in perfect , all necessities frovided A very comfortable stay I would give a very strong recommendation.
A magical farmhouse, beautifully restored, provided the setting for a landmark celebration. The bedrooms, in particular, were a highlight. Wonderful support from Martin, the caretaker, and the entire Landmark Trust team.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay , we were very glad that we did not have to share with another couple that we did not know . This is a fantastic venue for something different and special , to be recommended
Excellent lighthouse experience. Isolated but no ghosts. Had a tour of the lighthose which was fantastic
Had a good time. The place is beautiful, the location is central. I would've preferred two showers - we all ended up sharing the one shower instead of using the bath tub, but I can see how that would be appealing for others.
Excellent booking process by telephone at short notice. On arrival we were met by Teresa who filled us in on the local history and gave us tips for our visit. We enjoyed the Castletown House tour and especially the coffee shop. Most of all the sense of tranquility and calm atmosphere, especially in the evenings. I would highly recommend this property to anyone wanting a break away from the hustle and bustle of daily life.
We spent a very enjoyable weekend in this unique property in a wonderful location. The house is warm, snug and restored with taste and care to retain the original character. The location is magnificent - huge, dramatic skies and the magical lighthouse beam sweeping the courtyard in the evening. Plenty for the family (including three boys aged 14, 11 and 8) to do in the locality - we swam and walked in Kilkee on a beautiful September day - and good places to eat locally too.
We spent our last two days in Ireland in Castletown Gatehouse, Cellbridge. Afyer having learned a lot af historical facts about beautifull Ireland, it was very pleasant to be able to feel like the lucky people off Cellbridge now and in earlier periods. The park surrounding the Castletown house is amazingly beautiful.
The castle was amazingly good fun and a really great place to stay with a large group. The kids absolutely loved the place which is one of the best hide and go seek locations I have ever been to. The kitchen is really well equipped, which is not something we expected, my mother had literally packed everything including the kitchen sink to bring with us but we didn't need it at all. The beds are all standard queen size so if you have a real Queen with you (who is used to her super-king sized bed) be warned that there will be whinging about the size of the beds and maybe plan to leave an extra b...more
We truly enjoyed our stay at Anne's Grove. It was definitely a highlight of our trip to Ireland. Theresa, the caretaker, was very helpful with recommendations for things to do in the area. Everything was clean and well taken care of at the castle. The steps are a little intimidating going upstairs to the bedroom but that adds to the character of the castle.
We enjoyed a very restful time in Termon House. It is a charming house. It is in a beautiful location and the scenery is outstanding. The people from the town are so friendly. The beach was great for the kids and the playground in the community centre was handy too. A great experience to stay in Termon House.
We previously stayed at the Round House in Celbridge in May 2015, so we already knew we liked the property and location. Celbridge is a delightful little village, very convenient to the bustling Dublin, but separated enough to have its own charm. When we first visited, we really only used the house as a quick stopover for sleeping. This time we determined to relax in the house, and enjoy living in an historic home, with just enough modern conveniences. The property manager Grace Deegan was just finishing up prepping the house from the previous visitors, when we arrived a few minutes ahead of...more
