“Prettiest cottage in the prettiest village in Ireland”
Reviewed September 4, 2017 for a stay in August 2017
1
person found this review helpful

The cottage is more beautiful in person than the pictures can capture. Our first night there we happened to meet a woman whose grandmother had previously lived in the cottage and could tell us some of the history, which only added to the charm of the place. The location is convenient to good restaurants, a grocery, and many quaint shops. Adare is centrally located in Ireland, we were able to drive to the Cliffs of Moher, the Burren, and Bunratty one day, Blarney Castle the next. Eamon was very helpful, offering maps, GPS, and a phone for our use while there. We had plenty of room and the beds were very comfortable.

“Thatched cottage in the main Street of historic village of Adare.”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

We had a great stay at the thatched cottage in Adare.
Our hosts were very friendly and assisted with recommending stops on our daily sight seeing itineraries.
Adare itself is a very pretty village and well worth exploring, plus has plenty of shopping, pubs and eateries.
The thatched cottage is a unique historic cottage that was one of the highlights of our holiday. It is very roomy and has good facilities.

“Just like a visit to Great-Grandma's house”
Reviewed June 9, 2016 for a stay in May 2016
3
people found this review helpful

We visited the Gate Lodge in Adare at the end of May and found it to be a wonderful accommodation. The entry flowers were beautiful and well maintained. The bedrooms are stacked front to back so you can either enter the back room through the court yard from the kitchen or go through the front bedroom to access the back. The interior was reminiscent of a visit to great-grandma's with the historic pictures on the walls, the cross-stitched table cloth, wood paneling and bread box on the counter in the kitchen. Eammon, the owner, was a wonderful resource for touring the local area and was easy to get hold of when we had questions. The historic Adare Manor is right next door but is under renovation until 2017 so it is not available for tours. There are castles, abbeys and plenty of nice places to eat within easy walking distance and there is parking next to the cottage so if you are driving, you don't have to hike to your car.

We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this most charming cottage. The location in the pretty village of Adare is prime. The cottage is very well maintained and fully equipped for every need. Eammon is a wonderful host. He provided excellent advice on our scenic travels around County Kerry and beyond.
