A warm and welcoming B&B in a lovely location by a lake. Our view from the room was picturesque with a small church nearby and several grazing cows. Catherine was very accommodating and the breakfast was superb. +1 for runny eggs!

My husband and I stayed here, attend a wedding at the nearby slieve Russel. Catherine was so welcoming with a lovely pot of tea and biscuits. Room was spacious and clean with strong hot shower. Catherines husband was so kind to drop us to the hotel, with taxi back only costing 20euro. Breakfast was perfect with a beautiful view also.... More

This place is a treasure. Immaculately presented, great breakfasts and friendly hosts. Catherine went out of her way to ensure our stay was enjoyable, even contacting local people on our behalf who could help us in our family history search. The location is beautiful and very quiet, but you do need a car to be able to get around. I... More

After being shown to our room we were provided with coffee and scones which we ate in front of a roaring fire in the guest lounge. Catherine was provides a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere and is more than helpful with local information. Lake Avenue House is set in a quiet location overlooking Templeport Lough but is handy for the many attractions... More

I would recommend Lake Avenue House without exception and look... More

What a beautiful home and grounds! We stayed in this lovely private house for two nights and felt as if we entered the home of friends. Catherine was charming and helpful and spent probably more time than she expected to assisting with us with directions and general information about the area. Our room was a bit small but absolutely spotless... More
