Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed here after attending a family wedding nearby. From the moment we checked in Mary made us feel so welcome. The rooms are very comfortable and getting out of the comfortable bed was no easy task in the morning. Breakfast was made to order and was very tasty. Our daughter even got a jar of Nutella for her croissant(which made her morning) Both Richard and Mary were so friendly and full of information. If you are a history nut like me Richard is a wealth of information. We were also invited to pick apples from the orchard to take home which will make lovely apple tart. Would highly recommend and will definitely return in the future.

Mary and Daniel have a very tastefully decorated set of en suite rooms.A lovely outdoor sitting area and an indoor cinema in an outbuilding where Daniel will share his passion for military history.
Breakfast was amazing fresh eggs from the farm and homemade apple sponge using their own apples in the afternoon.
Great location near national stud.Burtown house etc and Great walks on Barrow way and Grand canal

We stayed here for one night and couldn't have enjoyed it more. Approaching the house, it feels like you're in a Jane Austen novel - stunning surrounds and the house is truly magnificent. It's worth the stay for the history alone! Raymond & Mary were extremely welcoming and the bedroom was a perfect mix of modern and classical charm. It felt like a home away from home. The bed was very comfortable, the room was fresh and clean, and the en-suite was lovely (large shower and handrail to support accessibility). We slept like logs because there was no noise or light pollution, and in the morning we enjoyed a lovely continental breakfast (Irish fry was also available, and we could select what time we wanted to eat). Raymond and Mary made sure we had everything we needed and also took the time to tell us about the house, history and their family. In particular if you have children, there was lots of land/gardens, outdoor dining spaces and chickens which we had a look in on (fresh free range eggs). We were also amazed to discover a proper cinema on the property, stocked full of dvds! In sum, we loved our stay and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property. We were also impressed by the Covid-safety. Thanks to Raymond & Mary!

It all started by the lovely warm welcome we received at the front door by Mary and Raymond .
We have been touring Ireland for the last two weeks and the welcome and hospitality we received was second to none.
Form the cleanliness and warmth of this extremely well maintained 18th century house and gardens, to the fabulous full Irish breakfast and home baked scones it all made for a wonderful stay. We have no hesitation in recommending this lovely 18th century country house to anybody who is thinking of booking accommodation in the area.

We stayed in Moate Lodge last Saturday night as we were going to a party nearby. Greeted warmly by Mary and shown to a huge, traditionally designed bedroom with views of 2 sides of the amazing country landscape. Returned after the party to have a great night's sleep in a really comfy bed, then had grand breakfast and chats with Richard and a walk around the extensive grounds. Such lovely people, gorgeous lodge, fine food and incredible value for money. An unexpected treasure.

I felt so warmly welcome in all my 5 days throughout my stay in Moate Lodge. Mary made always sure to ask me if I needed anything else than previously provided. The place exhales history from the moment you arrive! The house itself dates from the 18th century and when I started walking in the beautiful countryside of Kildare (gorgeous weather along my whole stay) alongside Moate Lodge, was a wonderful experience, making it difficult to just describe with words.
Raymond (Mary's husband) has a cinema inside the house (yeah, that's right!), and what a gentleman he is! Asked me which film from his collection I would like to watch... Wow! I decided to pick one which I've never watched, and how good it was. Simply amazing! Thank you very much both of you, Mary and Raymond for the lovely stay, far the best one in my days in Ireland.

Mary and Raymond are amazing hosts. The estate is a manor-like construction refurbished to have guests, full of history that Raymond is more than happy to share.
The accommodations are extremely comfortable while with an authentic Irish countryside decor. The bed was comfy, the shower was hot and with great pressure, the breakfast was delicious and on top of all that, the views... Out of any window, the views were breathtaking! Highly recommended!

Just back from a 3 night stay with Mary and Raymond at Moate Lodge for the Ploughing Championships. Set in a beautiful location, we had a family room which was very spacious and comfortable. Full irish breakfast was beautiful and both Raymond and Mary always had time for a chat.. We thoroughly enjoyed our time with them.

Nestled in the beautiful Kildare countryside this home is full of history and character. Mary & Raymond are so welcoming and happy to give the history and story of the house. The stonework, buildings and grounds are stunning. We could only stayed for one night and slept sound in a beautiful, comfortable room. We enjoyed a delicious full irish breakfast before we headed off. True Irish hospitality done right. This home is not far from the motorway, Kildare village and is a great location. We highly recommend and will stay longer next time we are back!
