Holiday Rental House
Albertine Lodge was once a working farmhouse. It has been sympathetically restored to blend in with the beautiful natural landscape surrounding it. The 5 bedrooms are all large doubles. Two bedrooms have King size beds, two have large Doubles and one room has 2 small Doubles which would take 2 or 3 children each. The downstairs bedroom has an ensuite wet room shower. The house comfortably sleeps 10 adults but can accommodate additional children on request. The open plan kitchen, dining and living area can comfortably seat a full house. The kitchen is well equipped and will make cooking a pleasure with both a country range and an electric hob and oven to cook from. There is a large flower and herb garden at the back door and you are welcome to snip a few fresh herbs to add to your meals. T...Albertine Lodge was once a working farmhouse.

There's a separate cosy sitting room with a wood burning stove, TV and plenty of books and magazines. Albertine Lodge is named after a beautiful rambling rose which summer guests will see in bloom along with plenty of other scented and colourful flowers in the garden. The character of the house was there from Day One and with every little improvement during its restoration it has evolved to become a truly unique and charming place to stay. You will find a mix of old and modern, quirky and cheerful all blended together to make your stay as relaxing, comfortable and homely as possible.

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.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.

House was very comfortable for 2 families. It was clean and very well furnished. You will probably need to drive to nearest towns, certainly to Carrick-on-Shannon, so bear that in mind. We plan to rent the house again.

We cannot stay enough about our stay in Carrick-on-Shannon. We traveled over from Seattle, WA to enjoy this magical place. From the moment we opened the doors, Albertine Lodge became our home away from home. Local food and drinks were waiting for us upon arrival and our party of 4 adults and 3 kids ages 6, 9 & 11 were extremely comfortable the entire time. Everyone had plenty of space and the kitchen had everything we needed to enjoy meals together as a family. After long days site seeing, it was the perfect place to unwind, walk along the country roads and enjoy tranquility. Fiona reached out immediately to ensure we had everything we needed and offered suggestions of places to see and enjoy. The Thatch Pub located nearby was a definite highlight. Local music at its finest! Thank you, Fiona for giving us a slice of Irish heaven during our stay. We will never forget it!

Albertine Lodge was exactly what I wanted and is the perfect place for catching up with up with friends. It was perfect. The house has everything one needs and the rooms are stylish and comfortable. Its close to Carrick on Shannon and Lough Key Forest, so plenty of outdoor activities close by. Dinner one evening, at Fiona's recommendation, was at the Cottage, Jamestown and was superb. I cannot recommend Albertine Lodge enough and Fiona and Francis's attention to detail. We would return in a heartbeat.

A beautiful house. A home away from home. Quiet location but near enough to explore the area that is steeped in history.

Albertine Lodge was the perfect base for our daughter's wedding. The house was immaculate and had every facility imaginable at hand. The owners, Fiona and Frances, were amazing and couldn't do enough for us. They went to extraordinary lengths to make us feel very welcome and embraced the importance of our stay by providing the added touches that mean so much. We would highly recommend Albertine Lodge to anyone visiting County Leitrim. We definitely hope to return! Many thanks, Nuala Kelly

We stayed in Albertine Lodge for a few days before my wedding and a few days afterwards. I cannot thank Frances and Fiona enough for everything they did for us. Their attention to detail is superb and made our stay even that more special. I was extremely touched when Fiona dropped in a wedding present the evening before my wedding...I'd not even met her before! Albertine Lodge is a rare gem that has absolutely everything you could need. The house is immaculate and extremely well finished. The rooms are spacious...particularly for many hairdressers and make up artists! I can guarantee you won't be disappointed if you book Albertine Lodge!
