Only stayed one night, but already felt like part of the family. Aideen & Martin perfect hosts, nothing was too much for them. Mentioned we were in area to go to Mullingar agriculture Show the next morning; Aideen happened to have complimentary International Visitor Tickets that they gave us. Also mentioned it was my husband's birthday next day. At breakfast... More

What a wonderful estate home with a palatial feel. We relaxed in quiet splendor with a spacious suite and very nice bathroom. The absolute best shower in all of Ireland. The breakfast was very nice and our host was very very friendly. We would visit this B&B again.

We thoroughly enjoyed our two-night stay at the Lough Owel Lodge. First, the proprietors, Aideen and Martin, were so welcoming. All four of us felt that we would have liked to get to know them better as they seemed like family from the very beginning. The rooms were charming and beds very restful. This was made more special as the... More

The Lough Owel Lodge was one of our favorites! Our room was actually a two bedroom suite, with a huge, completely remodeled, immaculate bathroom attached. The setting is amazing, on a lake with fields of flowers, sheep, cows, and donkeys (Sonny and Cher). Aideen's breakfast was incredible, with fresh squeezed orange juice, and homemade everything. We hope to return someday!

We stayed here for two nights with our three children (one in a cot). It has been a long time since I was this excited to recommend a place, and I would recommend this place to everyone.

We LOVED our stay with Aideen and Martin and their dog, Lady, and Donkeys, Sonny and Cher! You are taken back in time with the decor and the unspoiled grounds but then you eat Aideen's breakfast and her homemade scones and to-die-for lemon curd, and you're transported back to modern culinary magic! After taking all of it in, you realize... More

We stayed for one night at this excellent B&B during our Irish Tour and it was one of the most comfortable stays we experienced. Aideen was so accommodating and the surroundings were beautiful. Rooms were spacious with wifi and breakfast was first class. Loved the fresh orange juice. Thank you Aideen. John Daly and Tony Miceli

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this B&B. We had a large room with a canopy bed, a sitting area and some nice antiques.
