“Didn't want to leave”
Reviewed April 10, 2015 for a stay in April 2015

I am just back from a fantastic week in Ballyhoura and what a week I had. I traveled with 4 friends for a relaxing week of walks and some biking. We were greeted by the lovely Ita who very warmly welcomed us. She was very helpful and had loads of info about things do see and do. The accommodation was very comfortable and clean, ideal to come back to after a long day hiking or biking. It had everything we needed. Can't wait to go back

“Fantastic area,”

First time staying in the area, fastastic area, lodge was large with lots of space inside and out. Local area offered lots to do, ie trail riders, ballyhoura horse trail, killmallock mart, Carron mountain walks, fishing, karting, and a hurling match in Kiildorrey. Food was good at the hunters rest in Mitchelstown. Lodge had it own fire which my 5 & 8 year old loved to collect the wood in the forest outside the lodge. On the first morning cows were looking in over the fence. Local pub was welcoming, (Nuala) great pint. The steam at the bottom and the woods helped build imagation for games. Only issue were the woods were under development which let some of the area out of limits. ( but still lots of wood available). Great time would recommend to a friend.

“Cabin in the Woods”
Reviewed March 6, 2015 for a stay in February 2015

The cabins are in a quiet, remote corner of Limerick. However, the area is beautiful and tranquil and an ideal base for mountain biking in Ballyhoura.
Ita was extremely helpful and personable while the Cabin itself had all you need bar the limited television reception.

“Gorgeous, magical retreat in the woods”
Reviewed December 1, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Came with friends for the Hearsay Festival in Kilfinane, could NOT have stayed at a better place. The cabins are gorgeous both outside and in, and Etta (I think is the landlady's name - so sorry if I got that wrong!) was very welcoming and really hospitable. Very highly recommended.

“Cosy, lovely setting, nice people!”
Reviewed November 30, 2014 for a stay in November 2014

I stayed here as a guest of the HearSay Audio Festival, and am keen to spread the word! The lodges were very comfortable – warm, with everything you could ask for provided. In the mornings I had time for lovely walks up the track – but even from my breakfast table inside I saw a tree-creeper run up a tree a few metres away. The planting looks good too, to provide colour year-round.
For a nature lover with a car this is a great place to stay!

Reviewed November 10, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We have being going to Ballyhoura for Halloween for the past 10 years and are already planning for next year. The homes are always immaculately clean and presented. Have ways felt really welcome by Ita. The scenery is amazing and the local pub is a short walk away.

“Beautiful lodge, perfect peaceful weekend!”
Reviewed October 22, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed for a long weekend with our son and had a brilliant stay. Ita was more than helpful with regards to booking and confirming everything with us before we arrived - also extremely helpful when we arrived and through out our stay. The lodge itself was beautiful decorated to a really high standard, bedrooms were lovely and clean with freshly made bed that were very comfy. The whole lodge was extremely clean and the kitchen was well equipt with everything you would need to prepare any meals. The fire in the lounge was lovely and enough to heat the lodge. The surrounding area was beautiful and we had great fun on the zip wire and exploring the close forest. Already planning our next stay. Thank you so much Ita. Couldn't recommend anywhere better!
