We felt at home from the minute we arrived and were looked after with a lovely personal touch. A gem of a hotel in a superb... More

We just today returned from a two day stay with our dog and can't say enough wonderful things about The Lake House. We arrived on Sunday evening to a very warm welcome from Mary and all of the staff. Our room was huge, super comfortable and immaculate, with luxurious linen on the bed. There was the prettiest dog friendly sitting... More

First, the good: Our room was very comfortable and clean, as was the bathroom. This was the roomiest bathroom we've had while in Ireland, which was nice.

Perfectly located country house hotel beside possibly the best beach and the best golf course in Ireland. Wonderfully friendly staff, good food, great place to unwind after a day out.
