The refurbishment of these two houses is marvellous ... and I have seen the "before" photos! ...and the furnishing and equipping of the house was first class. It was a pleasure to work in the kitchen - we self-catered so well for Breakfasts & one Dinner. Previously unfamiliar with the area of Cork city, we were thrilled to discover the area. So close to everywhere on foot, as we always enjoy the English Market but we liked being "off the beaten track". and that we surely were. in Elizabeth Fort, with its 16th century origins. We explored the fairly new Nano Nagle Centre; how delightful thi...more
This was our second stay at Inchiquin for New Year and again a truly wonderful experience. The house is in excellent condition and we were particularly impressed with the kitchen which has every possible utensil provided
All my family love going to Galley Head. It was our third visit in a year! Gerald Butler is a wonderful host - welcoming, informative and generous with his time. We can't wait to go back again and walk the hills to The Long Strand & Castlefreke.
Incredible location and a superb experience. Can’t say enough about it. Highly recommend. Gerard was extremely helpful and made it even more special.
We had a splendid time as usual and would certainly recommend it to our friends. As we have stayed in Railway Cottage on a number of occasions and have always enjoyed it immensely.
The school house is a fantastic property to stay in. It’s beautifully restored and has all modern conveniences. Everything is very self explanatory and a lot of thought has gone into small details to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable.
Extremely comfortable house, warm and cosy. As is usual for Irish Landmark Trust, the furnishings and style are old-world style, which is exactly how we like it. Our host was very nice, warm and welcoming and available by mobile if we had any questions during our stay. She had basic provisions (tea, coffee, sugar and milk) available for us on our arrival, and the house is only a short distance by car to the nearest town for other provisions. One thing that is important to comment on is that the house is located on an extremely busy road, both day and night (with trucks) ... they go at high...more
We loved our stay at SJ Clipper. The location is amazing with far reaching views to the Sligo mountains on one side and Slieve League and Killybegs to the other. The house is spacious, clean & comfortable. There are two bedrooms, one double & one twin. It has a well equipped kitchen, spacious bathroom with freestanding bath & separate shower room. There is no Wi-Fi and no TV, which is bliss. Booking and check-in is a breeze and Gerard the house manager is very friendly and informative. The Lighthouse is a 20 minute drive from the nearest village, down what is mostly a single ...more
We had a super weekend @ the Mews so quiet & location is fab. Leah was very accommodating . House is very comfortable & parking is a bonus. Would highly recommend
The house was just so comfortable, & warm too and beautifully decorated. A real home from home. The kitchen was well stocked too in terms of pots/pans and general items for cooking (we did quite a bit of cooking as the English Market is a short walk away with fantastic fresh ingredients). Of course the location of the house (in the middle of the fort) was just fabulous. I am from Cork originally and was home for a number of family events, my entire family came to vist the house on various occasions as they were dying to see the inside. We all loved it! All in all, a really special plac...more
We absolutely loved our stay! The cottage is charming with time appropriate decorating. We built a fire each day and let our imaginations return to an earlier time in Irish life. The flashing of the great lighthouse beam and the roaring sea, the Butler family (last keepers of the lighthouse) and their 15 children. The life of the keeper and his family surely had many challenges. They were all met right where we sat at beautiful Galley Head.
We had the most amazing 2 nights staying in an actual lighthouse!! There are so many windows,each with a different gorgeous view and all rooms are so bright and extremely well used space. Unexpectedly warm,we did not feel it was January. Cozy,clean and comfortable,a truly magical experience. There are so many things to do and see around, and an evening spent there makes you forget about the real world. Recommend it for couples or families or just friends wanting something magical!
We took a short break in the middle of the summer in order to escape from Dublin and found exactly what we were looking for! This property is set in a most remote, quiet area. We had very fine weather and I loved sitting in the quiet surrounds of the garden most of all. The children enjoyed the playing in the courtyard and the lane running up the back of the house, and we enjoyed exploring the area around an abandoned school house up past the fields. There were two easy day trips we thoroughly enjoyed: the first was Erica's Fairy Forest in Cootehill, along with the surrounding walks. T...more
Fantastic property, amazing place to visit and extremely comfortable. We stayed two nights at the end of december. One bedroom is on the ground floor next to the bathroom and living room- perfect for my parents who have some mobility issues. Amazing location
We spent two nights at the lodge after Christmas and it was perfect. Beautiful accommodation with lots of lovely touches including a selection of board games. The location is fantastic and it is only a short walk from Celbridge town. Would definitely recommend.
The location of the Townhouse is excellent with amenities right on its doorstep. Great to experience an old house in the heart of the vibrant city.
Castle atmosphere, Quiet location,Frosty morning walks, and red squirrels made this a memorable stay
This was our second stay at Termon House, and third at a Landmark Trust property. The house has been painted since our last stay and looked very welcoming. It was very comfortable and was a special place to spend some time, cook nice food and enjoy family time. We enjoyed the fires, game nights, the walks, listening to the sound of the sea, and this time our dog Bella came and had the time of her life! The children were very sad to leave and we can't wait to return again! Both Marjorie, and Irene in the LT office, were a pleasure to deal with and we always feel we are in good hands. Thank...more
We couldn’t ask for a quainter or more accommodating place near such a lovely location as Castletown house. Highly recommend.
Thoroughly enjoyable stay. House very clean warm and welcoming. Great walks and nearby restaurant. Great welcome to the house over the New Year.
