If you don't mind staying just outside the major centres then you will love this place. A really country feel when you look out of your bedroom window to see cattle,sheep and horses along with a fantastic view over the lake and beyond. However, it is only a short drive into Ennis which is a quaint place with a great... More

Clean facilities, well fitted room including a large window and a nice sitting area in my room and a nice seating area downstairs both inside and out. I loved being able to have a picnic dinner at the table outside overlooking the lake. Wonderful location in the countryside that is conveniently located close to major routes to almost anywhere, including... More

Beautiful location and lovely views of the countryside. Joan is the perfect hostess. She made some good recommendations for dinner and sightseeing. She also made herself available to sign for my luggage which arrived a day late! Our room was comfortable, clean, and spacious. Breakfast was traditional Irish and plentiful. This was our first experience at a B & B... More

A lovely B&B with good breakfast and a beautiful view from the sitting room. Our room was spacious, and everything was clean and fresh. Rooms could be better sound-proofed - we could hear every door and every flush from the room next door, but as the other guests were considerate and lovely, it was not a real problem. We had... More

My daughter and I stayed at the Lakeside for the first two nights of our Ireland vacation. The host, Joan was very friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was delicious - especially the scones! We traveled in Ireland for two weeks and we feel that Joan's scones were... More

This place was stunning! Our host, Joan, was delightful. The setting was in the country with sheep, cows and a horse on the property. It overlooked a lake and a ruin. There were swans in the lake and it was so tranquil. Our room was spacious and immaculate. Breakfast was delicious and plentiful. We felt so lucky to spend our... More

Lakeside was a nice spot. A little further from Ennis center than we would have liked. The room was spacious and clean. The hosts were friendly. The view of the lake is gorgeous! The big downside that we found was that the walls were paper thin, we could hear the couple next to us having a conversation. I would recommend... More

Stayed here just before the tourist crunch in the western region. Good place from which to operate on a vacation to the Dingle, Ennis, and The Burren/Cliffs of Mohrer. Very clean, and the service and breakfast was excellent. The owner was very helpful and accommodating. There was an electric adapter in the room-a nice touch. For us, it was a... More

What a gem! After a long drive, we were delighted to find this place! Fairly easy to locate, especially with today's gadgets, the location is ideal. Picture-perfect view. Rejuvenating. The host is lovely and has very tastefully decorated the rooms. Be careful using the shower though, otherwise you risk scalding. There is good Wi-Fi and even better mobile data reception... More

Our stay at Lakeside Country Lodge couldn't have been nicer. Our room was spacious, clean, lovely and comfortable. The entire home was decorated elegantly, and our favorite room was the sitting room with the gorgeous view of the lake with the ruins of an abbey across the lake. The breakfast will filling and tasty. I left an important article when... More
