We pulled into the side parking lot to check in so didn't get the full effect of the beautiful setting from the front of the Lodge. The front of the Lodge gives you the gracious "old world " impression but the layout of the rooms is open and modern. It is all centered around an open courtyard area..with two rooms...

Touring Western Ireland we called in to Ashford Castle for afternoon tea but were turned away. Our local Irish hosts were appalled by this treatment and made their views clear to the doorman. Who did act a little superior. However our experience at the nearby Lodge was good. We had our afternoon tea and a bottle of champagne in elegant...

The walls and carpets are a little shabby but really that's a minor comment and I understand that they are planning to update these soon. Dinner was lovely, breakfast amazing and...

Beautiful grounds. Decent service despite the large hurling event taking place at the lodge upon our arrival. Rooms are dark but well appointed with very comfortable beds. Breakfast was perfectly acceptable. This location is quite a distance from anything remarkable for those looking to explore Ireland. That being said, you could spend your whole stay on the grounds without dissapointment.
