We spent one night in this B&B through our two week road trip through Ireland in November. We slept well, the breakfast was very good and the room was clean. Whatelse do u need? For Google Maps users: The Lodge is NOT near the golf club! Go to Ballylickey and watch for the Aran Lodge sign on the main road.

Sometimes when one returns to a previously well-liked lodging, there is disappointment the second time around. My husband and I enjoyed our two stays at the Aran Lodge B&B this October just as much as we did our first visit. Aran Lodge is homey and comfortable, clean as a whistle (best smelling towels in the world), and the O'Connell family... More

We had a great stay with Dierdre at the Aran Lodge. We rented the family room upstairs, which was perfect for our family of five, giving us ample space for all of our luggage and ourselves. The B & B is on a hill with a nice view below, and the big yard was perfect for our kids (and grown-ups)... More

Stayed in Aran Lodge for 5 nights last week. The accommodation was very good. Excellent breakfast every morning. The family were very welcoming and had lots of information about the local area. Ideal location for touring the area.

We stayed in Deirdre's lovely b&b for two very enjoyable nights . Breakfast was really good, lots of fresh fruit and great selection. Deirdre is a great hostess and the internet connection was the fastest we had all week! Well worth a visit. The views for breakfast were memorable over bantry bay

It was our second time at Aran Lodge and we were not disappointed. Ideally placed for touring West Cork (and visiting our friends at the Eagle Point Caravan/Camping park), the accommodation is very comfortable and the breakfasts are splendid - lovely gardens too,

Thoroughly enjoyed our time in Aran Lodge. We were well fed, rooms were modern & fresh, and the hosts were second to none. I'd recommend it to a friend anytime. And Bantry is a beautiful part of the world with lots to do and see.

My wife and I stayed at Aran Lodge with our family in August 2013. The rooms were clean and were well appointed. Ballylickey is a really beautiful place with plenty to see and do in the area for at least a week. We enjoyed eating at some of the local pubs in the evenings as they had live music. The... More
