Although we are both locals from cork we really enjoyed our weekend break in garrison house. Loved having the whole fort to ourselves (highlight was seeing the locked gate from the inside!) and house itself was very well equipped and so central to everything. Incredibly quiet too which I didn’t expect , those fort walls must be VERY thick ! Would definitely recommend.
A wonderful house in the most beautiful part of Ireland. Big walks, surfing and pubs, all on your doorstep.
The house was cozy and warm . We also had the option of an open fire. The place was spotless . The kitchen had everything you need for cooking with a beautiful view of the ocean as you sat at the table. There was 2 bathrooms one upstairs and one downstairs(only in house 2) .The views were spectacular! Meria and Gerald were great, answering all the questions we had about the beautiful lighthouse and very friendly. You can sense the love they have for this place.We will definitely be back and will rent the other house too so family and friends can be with us to experience the beauty of this plac...more
We had a fantastic weekend staying at Schooner and Clipper. We rented the tow houses as a family holiday, and it worked out brilliantly. In typical Donegal style, we had nearly all seasons over the course of the few days, and all agreed it would be absolutely magical to be there during a storm! The houses are tastefully restored, and so comfortable. You can see the Trust went for style particularly in the large bathrooms, rather than trying to squeeze as many beds in as they could. Beautiful, unrivalled location, peaceful, everything you could need is supplied in the houses. Ger the house mana...more
nice quite spot near donegal town Some lovely restraunts in the town which were easily acsesed by taxi The cottage is very well mantained with a beautiful garden
First visit to The School House and it definitely won’t be our last. From booking to departure the experience was first class. The welcome from Sarah was excellent, so full of useful information on the area, places to visit etc. Sarah also told us the history of the house, which I really appreciated. The house was spotless and had everything we needed and more. The kitchen is very well equipped and easy to use. we cooked dinner every night and there was absolutely nothing we wanted for! The beds are super comfy with lovely fresh linen. The tiny details that Sarah has added, lovely hand...more
We enjoyed our stay. We appreciate Maro's help and flexibility. We would like to return in future. I dislike that I am unable to complete this review because it is not 100 characters long - that stipulation is not encouraging for any potential customers.
Enjoyed staying in the Parade House. Very nice accommodation. Everything we needed. Wonderful welcome from Liz.
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 were delighted with our stay at Merrion Mews. The home is a dear, wonky but solid, beautifully renovated old coachman's cottage above stables. Sadly we didn't see the horses during our stay though. The beds were very comfortable, the facilities were excellent and it felt like our home. The location is ideal, right in the heart of Dublin within walking distance of Grafton Street shops, Trinity College, St Stephens Green, Temple Bar and dozens of galleries, cafés, restaurants, shops and of course pubs. Having said that it was whisper quiet, with no street noise at all. A perfect place to stay...more
This property is beautifully located and really comfortable. Our landlady was also very friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we really didn't like the Irish Trust booking process though, it contained many tedious steps and was not customer friendly. Website is badly designed and makes it difficult to check availability of properties.
I've always wanted to stay in a "real" lighthouse so expectations were high - Wicklow exceeded them. There's a real wow factor to this place - the building, the landscape, the seascape and the wildlife. We stayed over a windy October weekend and I thought it might be chilly but once the heaters were turned on the rooms were warm and cosy in no time.
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
An excellent property, clean and cosy, warm and comfortable. The Lighthouse was open for tours and there was plenty to see on the peninsula too as the area is beautiful. Weather surprisingly mild and dry. Booking system helpful and easy to use. House manager friendly and competent!
Great location with park and trails . Hard to find at night. Directions are vague unless you arrive during the day., but locals are great for directions. Very modern inside. Not as authentic as other locations.
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.
We loved staying in the miniature castle! It is located just outside a charming little town, and is in a great location for sight seeing. The house was so cute and the bed was the only comfortable bed we found in Ireland. We would definitely recommend it to friends!
This was our second time staying in Termon House. We loved it the first time and it didn’t disappoint second time around. The setting is simply stunning. There are gorgeous views from every window. The house itself has been freshly painted inside and out and there is lovely fresh new furniture in the lounge. Beds are very comfortable and the whole house is clean and cosy. Margorie, who looks after the property, is so helpful and she had the house cosy and warm for our arrival on a cold Halloween afternoon. We spent our long weekend walking on the local beaches and then relaxing in the house in...more
The house was beautifully prepared for us - cosy, warm and welcoming. The location is so well placed - very easy to get the 67 bus right into the centre of Dublin, easy to access roads elsewhere, and Celbridge also has everything you would need, not least the wonderful estate to walk round. A very enjoyable and relaxing stay with the added delight of staying somewhere out of the ordinary. I know the Irish Landmark Trust do not control the weather! - but that was fantastic too, bathing us in sun filled autumn colours.
The perfect location (both house and town) for a great weekend away. We visited Castletown (5 minute walk from the house) and completed a most informative and engaging tour of the house. The tour sparked our imaginations and going back to the Roundhouse was the perfect way to start our evening. We indulged in some pre-dinner drinks in the cosy and atmospheric living room with a blazing peat fire (nothing beats a real fire). Thereafter we walked the great distance of 100 metres to Canteen restaurant in Celbridge town which was a fantastic culinary experience. After our late night we cam...more
