“Superb Accommodation, Location, and Fishing!”
Reviewed September 6, 2017 for a stay in September 2017

We stayed in the small lodge (2 people). The accommodation is superb with new appliances and a modern finish. The owners are very welcoming, helpful and knowledgeable about the area.
For those fishing it is located very close to Lake Muckno, other great lakes, and Castleblaney (useful for the tackle shop).
We would certainly be booking again in the future.

“Beautiful home in serene and scenic surroundings”
Reviewed July 5, 2017 for a stay in July 2017

Gorgeous spacious home in peaceful rural surroundings. Photographs don't do it justice. 10 of us stayed as a family group. Kids and adults loved it. Had everything we needed for a great weekend away. Great play park in Castleblayney for the kids. Didn't meet Fiona in person but Peter on hand to answer any questions we had. Would definitely visit again.

“Perfect - home from home for Christmas and New Year”
Reviewed January 28, 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We had the most fabulous stay at Muckno Lodge, whilst visiting our family and friends in Castleblayney. The house is perfect and comfortable and was everything we could ask for, including Christmas decorations! Fiona and her family were great hosts and always on hand. There are some beautiful walks directly from the front door. Hope to come back in the summer.

“What a fantastic holiday home!”
Reviewed August 25, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

We travelled here with 3 generations aged 10 to 70+. The accommodation was fantastic! It was very comfortable, well-equipped and spacious.The children loved the games room. We found it a great base to explore County Monaghan and beyond. We had some great days out at the nearby lake and adventure playground and even hired canoes one afternoon. Carlingford was beautiful and also gave us the opportunity to visit the Long Woman's Grave and Magic Hill. The museum at Monaghan was very interesting and the cathedral there was huge. We enjoyed a walking tour around Carrickmacross and visited the lace gallery and Workhouse there.
The owners were really helpful and even let the children visit and name the newborn calf which was born on the day we arrived.
I cannot recommend this holiday home highly enough!
