I've never written a review before but I felt I really had to express just what a delightful time we had in Marsh Mere Lodge. It is quite simply the nicest B&B we have ever stayed in. Like others have said here it is a beautiful house full of character and lovely antiques and old photos with a most warm... More

The end of January is not the best time to visit Ireland but we were very fortunate. Not only was the weather kind, but the B&B was ideal - comfortable room, hospitable host and superb breakfast. The Bed was perfect, warm and cosy with electric blanket, duvet and eiderdown. The sitting room was large and nicely furnished with a blazing... More

We have just spent two nights in Marsh Mere Lodge and I would highly recommend it. Claire is a wonderful welcoming host. She made tea for us when we arrived with delicious cake. She had switched on the electric blanket in our bed, so it was lovely and warm. We had the use of a beautiful sitting room with an... More

I have never on all my travels encountered such a wonderful experience such as this one, at Marsh Mere Lodge, County Wexford, Ireland. Claire is an absolutely wonderful, friendly and giving person who looked after myself and my partner exceptionally well. Nothing was ever too difficult, she made us feel like it was a home away from home. Her breakfasts... More

Our party of four stayed at Marsh Mere Lodge in early September. It was our introduction to Ireland, and it couldn't have been nicer. Claire, the owner, grew up in this lovely home and she was a friendly and helpful hostess. Her breakfasts were fresh, delicious and ample. It was fun to meet her lively Corkies in the adjacent yard.... More

We traveled all over Ireland for 24 days, footloose & fancy free - small packs & no set itinerary after first visiting Ballyhack, Duncannon & surrounding area. Loved staying at Marsh Mere Lodge in Arthurstown, beautiful view - and a mile walk to Ballyhack. Clare gave us rides & was very accommodating - wonderful place. I would highly recommend staying...

Had a 3 night break in this unique beautiful B&B. Loved it, great location with stunning views. Welcomed with tea and cake on the verandah overlooking the sea, so relaxing. Felt spoilt. Will definitely return. Scrumptous breakfast each morning. Duncannon break and hook head very close by. Dunbrody house a short walk away. Loved the unique decor, so much history... More

Arrived at Marsh Mere on a sunny afternoon to a great welcome. Afternoon tea was served on the verandah overlooking a sparkling sea on this beautiful Spring day. We had the most amazing bedroom with a huge balcony overlooking the bay. The decor is very tastefully done and quirky, in the loveliest sense. Our bathroom was pristine and blue stripped... More

What a great find this was. After a tiring day cycling we arrived at Marsh Mere Lodge to a great welcome and tea and cake on the verandah overlooking what must be one of the most beautiful views in Ireland. The hospitality was wonderful. Our room was extremely comfortable. The breakfast was excellent and set us up for the day.... More
