We enjoyed our two-night stay at Lakeshore Lodge. Our hostess was so sweet and very accommodating. When we arrived, (late), she contacted a couple of restaurants for us and sent us to a beautiful restaurant that used to be a church (Think it was called Sol y Soma). They served delicious fare, had Irish music, Irish dancer and an Irish storyteller. Our view was amazing at the lodge and our walk to the lake was so enjoyable we didn't want to leave. Our breakfast was full of so many choices and very delicious while enjoying the view. We would highly recommend Lakeshore Lodge !!
Treat yourself by staying here instead of in the busy town. This home is absolutely gorgeous. The bedroom was the most spacious of any of the B&Bs we stayed in and was so beautifully appointed. The beautiful room was enhanced by the view past the park-like garden and sculptures to the scenic lake beyond. Kathleen was a lovely hostess and offered great suggestions on where to go and what to do. What a little bit of heaven here...aah....
We spent three nights at Lakeshore. The house was beautifully fitted out, with comfortable beds and a great view. Lovely setting and spotlessly clean. The breakfast was generous and delicious. Kathleen was a wonderful host with lots of local knowledge and advice. A real pleasure to stay here and I'd highly recommend it.
My wife and I were staying in Killorglin for only one night, and thank goodness for the positive reviews that led us to Kathleen and Gene's Lakeshore Lodge. Oh, their property is amazing, sitting on the shore of Caragh Lake. The view from their backyard, and from our room, was breathtaking. The room itself was the largest, most luxurious one we stayed in during our three weeks in Ireland. We loved it so much, we had an early dinner and spent the evening "at home". Kathleen and Gene are gems. They are so kind, and we had some great conversations about my genealogical research and finding relatives in County Waterford. We were sad that we only stayed for one night, but hope that you are able to stay for longer. Thank you so much, Kathleen. PS Kathleen we bought a copy of Philomena, like you recommended.…
I've been fortunate enough to stay with Kathleen and Gene several times and each time is better than the last. The locations is superb and the level of attention and service from Kathleen is top notch. You immediately feel at home. There is a beautiful balance of Kathleen being available to engage or give suggestions, but to also enjoy your time in completely turning off. No better location for this than the Lakeshore Lodge. I hope I am able to return again and again!
We stumbled upon the Lakeshore Lodge quite by chance when it was recommended to us by another innkeeper. The owners, Kathleen and Gene, are interesting and lovely people and the location, right on Carragh Lake was serenely beautiful. We ate a (delicious) full Irish breakfast enjoying the views of the lake and verdant grounds. We would definitely come back and stay longer. One of the highlights of our trip to Ireland!
Stayed at lakeshore lodge last weekend. Beautiful location, fab views of Carragh lake, lovely walks down to the lake, great house, beautiful decor, perfect breakfast, great ensuite room, really could find no fault at all. Priced very reasonable. Best part was the owners, lovely couple, great company. Would fully recommend this b+b.
Lakeshore Lodge is a wonderful home situated right on the lake with waterfront access. The scenery alone makes the stay worth it. That being said, our hosts were incredibly kind with their welcome and recommendations of where to explore next, and the breakfast was delicious and very filling! The room was spectacular and I have never slept in a more comfortable bed. Highly recommended!!
If ever I need a place to regain my appreciation of nature I cannot think of a better place. The house, the setting, the lake, the mountains, the gardens and the wildlife - everything is beautiful - including Kathleen, the most gracious and helpful hostess!
Lake Shore Lodge is a gorgeous house at an excellent location, extremely comfortable and the most lovely hosts. Myself and a colleague are most fortunate to frequent the location with some regularity in the summer months for business and it is always incredibly comfortable and welcoming. No matter the weather the view is lovely. Breakfasts are delightful, and there are plenty of trails and cycle routes near by. Kathleen is so kind, extremely pleasant, very flexible, and very good at keeping the house in perfect form.
