As advertised this lodge can easily sleep 10; there were only 4 adults & one child in our party, but we enjoyed having all that extra room to move around, as well as the opportunity to fish right in front of the lodge across the narrow lake road. FYI, according to Google Maps the lake is named Annaghiern. I booked our 10-day stay through Imagine Ireland & paid for the rental online through them. There was an additional booking fee (of 25 Euros, I think) & the contract also specified that we had to pay for the oil & electricity used during our stay (that came to about 70 Euros), which is determined by reading the meter as per the owners’ directions. The living room is quite large & has a fireplace & a bay window with a gorgeous view of the lake. The fireplace comes with a “starter pack” of some kindling & coal, & we bought additional kindling & coal & used the fireplace almost every night. The living room also has a fairly large TV with a decent assortment of Irish & UK channels. One of the downstairs rooms is a playroom for children with a small television & an adjacent room can also be used as a lounge or play area. The kitchen is fairly spacious with a table & 4 chairs; there’s also a microwave, stove/oven, dishwasher, & in a small room adjacent to the kitchen (with a door to the rear entrance to the lodge) a washer & dryer. There’s a large table with 6 chairs in the dining room, which is partially separated from the kitchen by the kitchen island. Each bedroom has its own bathroom (one bedroom has a larger bathroom in a separate room next to the bedroom). The lodge was very clean & tidy, and all beds were perfectly made for guests. Floors & stairs are wood/wood veneer throughout. The lodge is well maintained & I would highly recommend it as being quite suitable for a moderately large family or group. There are many memorable things for us to cherish about our time in Ireland, & one of those things was this wonderfully spacious lodge.
