Guest Reviews

The lodge was perfect for our short surf trip, it was kitted out so well and Donna was so helpful with recommendations for the area. Only 5-10min drive to Rossnowlagh beach, maybe bit far to walk if in the pub but taxi was easily organised. Communication was quick and check in was easy.

Super house and location. You could stay there just to admire how well it has been designed. It was extremely clean and this is immediately noticeable as soon as you walk in the door. The games/gym building takes it to another level. It really is outstanding. If I could give it a 6 star rating I would.

The photos do not do this place justice - easily the most beautiful, clean and spacious Airbnb we have ever stayed in. There’s nothing more we could have asked for, complimentary basket of gifts was much appreciated! Thank you so much, we will be back and the games room was great entertainment!
