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

My wife and I stayed for 5 nights and wish we could have stayed longer. Catherine and Joe were so gracious. Breakfast was excellent - homemade brown bread was superb. Without our asking, Catherine even had some lowfat milk ready for our breakfast. We definitely recommend this B&B for anyone else.

We spent the last day of our one-week tour across Ireland in this wonderful place and were welcomed with incredible warmth and hospitality. Even though we could only stay for one day, this was an incredibly relaxing time, being far away from big roads and busy cities.
