We cannot say good enough things about the lodge and it's residences. Michael and Geraldine were incredible hosts. We liked the place so much the first time we decide to stay there on the way back. It is a relatively newer constructed spacious home but with an old world charm to it. The view of Benbulben was incredible and the farm a charm to mill about on. I appreciated Michaels green and agricultural bents as I myself have interest in these areas. They are very consciencous people. As I mentioned we stayed there on our way back from Donegal and immediately wanted to hike Benbulben again. Geraldine was very nice and went way out of her way to give us information on how to get there, the best way to go,etc. Unfortunately we had a terrible car wreck on the way out. A host of incredible people came to our aid throughout the experience. Geraldine, who was called by a citizen first responding, was one of them, who drove out there pick up our stuff, met us at the hospital, took my then fiancé home, brought us take out, did our laundry, drove me to address legal issues (which though scary worked out just fine) and made us meals etc. We were so touched by her, her husband, and other citizens of Ireland we were moved to tears many times over. We were in pretty sore shape and the kindness of their hearts shined through. In fact we had to fly out only a few days later with no car rental so her husband graciously took us early in the morning and even called the train station to ask them to wait a few minutes more. Really folks, you could ask for better people to host your stay. All the other ammenities were great but what we really remember is their spirit.
